Yes, in and out of the gym. Inside of the gym, 2 examples are a 200# Back Squat and my first muscle up. Outside of the gym, 2 examples are finishing the Breck Epic Mountain Bike Race and having the stamina to work 14+ hour in the OR.

What results have you seen so far since coming to CFV?
Countless - more self confidence, less knee and back pain from building more muscle, looking better naked ;), more endurance on my mountain bike and skis, less stress, better ability to cope with work stress, and overall great friendships and relationships.

Consistently hit muscle ups, get a strict muscle up, get a strict handstand push up, and better shoulder ROM.
