Kevin and Erin Harrington were looking for a way to change their lives, and they found it in Southern Moon CrossFit. The welcoming environment in the Greenville, South Carolina, affiliate keeps them coming back.

“Everyone was very supportive and encouraging,” Erin says of her first visit. “When you’re overweight and going to a gym to work out for the first time, it can be intimidating because a lot of people either ignore you or don’t know how to deal with someone who’s overweight and starting an exercise program, and that never seemed to be a problem here.”

The Harringtons adopted the Paleo Diet and started doing CrossFit regularly. The result? They lost weight and gained a family.

“You inherit these people,” Kevin says. “At some point, you all just kind of fall together, and you’re all doing the same thing, and you get to know people. … You become more intertwined because those are your friends. It’s your tribe.”

Coaches Dave Schlarb and Hudson Fricke create a fun-loving, encouraging environment where Erin says the “scary stuff” of starting a fitness program is removed. Erin’s husband echoes her affection.

“(Dave and Hudson) saved my life,” he says. “I can’t thank them enough for that.”
