“You should definitely check out CrossFit Solid Orange. There are people from all walks of life coming together to get better. We all push each other when we struggle and we all celebrate when someone hits a Personal Best. Strongly recommend to any level of fitness.”
"CrossFit Solid Orange truly, sincerely cares for my health and well-being. Coach Ryan always checks on me to make sure I don’t fall off! Everyone who attends are encouraging and will push me into doing things I’ve never imagined I could do!"
“I love this place! I came in as a complete beginner and was very nervous at first seeing all the extremely FIT people, but I have never been made to feel more welcome in my life! The coaches work with you even you are a beginner who needs more instruction and time or advanced, they cater to both.”
“I have been going to this gym for a little over 2 years and cannot be happier with my experience. I had never imagined enjoying CrossFit as much as I do. The people are incredible, everyone is so encouraging and the results speak for themselves.”
I have worked out at this box for just over a year now and I love it. I am by no means in the same shape I was 10 years ago, but I am still very competitive and love the level of group and personal focus I get from Ryan and all of the coaching staff. The culture and environment is productive and well balanced for all levels of personal fitness. Not everyone is made to compete at a high level, but this Gym / box caters to all levels of personal fitness motivation.
CrossFit Solid Orange truly, sincerely cares for my health and well-being. Coach Ryan always checks on me to make sure I don’t fall off! Everyone who attends are encouraging and will push me into doing things I’ve never imagined I could do! Within 5 months of joining I’m already starting to get “gunz” !! Lol!!!
I started going to CFSO about 7 or 8 months ago, I had always wanted to try out crossfit but I never wanted to pay the price other gyms charge. I did the free started class and Coach Ryan was very helpful and made you feel right at home. After doing that class I decide to join the gym and I haven’t looked back! The gym has really formed a good “family” atmosphere. Everyone is welcomed with open arms! No matter the skill level!
Highly recommended! I learned a lot of valuable skills at Solid Orange. Ryan and crew run a great technique centered and goal oriented program that pushed me while being supportive.
I absolutely love the atmosphere of this place! It’s not just a gym, it’s a family! Everyone is there for their own success but also to cheer you on and make sure you succeed as well. The coaches are amazing 😉 and always encourage you to do more then you think you can do.
In my prior experience of workout facilities in the Antioch area Coach Ryan and the Crossfit Solid Orange facility is hands down the most efficient and effective place for training and fitness that I’ve had the pleasure of attending. Everyone is family friendly and encouraging. Coach Ryan is extremely knowledgeable and understanding when it comes to helping with individual(s) and their goals. If you haven’t tried them you’re missing out!!!!!
I came to CFSO after taking a year off from CrossFit. As I walked in on day 1 I had flashbacks to my first class in my previous Box. Same nervous jitters. Coach Ryan made me feel right at home. The other members are all exactly the type of people you want to have around you during an intense MetCon. They create a sense of competitiveness without actually being competitive. It doesn’t matter how strong or fast you are. The community at CrossFit Solid Orange will welcome you with open arms. So that’s that. The warm up is over. 3, 2, 1 GO! (you’ll understand after your first class)
Ryan is a wonderful coach who cares about the people and the craft.
Since I joined this gym I have found community, competition, and consistency since moving to Nashville!
I recommend coming by to experience a piece of what I have over the last year!
My sanity!!! I found this place when I needed it the most. Coaches are wonderful and always encouraging. I’ve been at this gym almost 2 years now and look forward EVERY time I get a chance to go… 3 to 4x/week. I’d highly encourage anyone no matter what level of fitness to give CFSO a try. The family atmosphere is truly awesome!
I joined CrossFit solid Orange after 15 months of being inactive due to a car accident. I had heard about Solid Orange from a friend so i checked it out. Now, I’m hooked. Coach Ryan is amazing. He’s encouraging and pushes me past what I think I’m capable of. I love the team atmosphere that all of my workout buddies bring. They’re all cheering you on when you need it most. It also appeals to my competitive nature. I love seeing the improvements in my fitness level. Still a ways to go personally, but I hope to continue to see where CrossFit Solid Orange takes me. CrossFit has really helped my issues from my accident as well. I feel fit for whatever life may throw.
Great gym! The workouts were challenging for all levels, whether you are a beginner or experienced at Crossfit. Coach Ryan spent time helping me perfect my form and taught me some great new stretches as well. If you’re in Nashville don’t miss the opportunity to stop in for a great workout challenge!
I went in with zero knowledge of CrossFit and thought I wouldn’t like it. But, this is an amazing and welcoming place. They’re affordable compared to other places and have flexible class timings. All the coaches are very experienced and are really invested in you. They push you to do better than what you think you can do. Trust me, you’ll not regret going to this place. It’s sooo much funnnn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I started working out here in December and it has been a great experience. The coaches taught me everything I needed to know to successfully participate in the workouts. It is a friendly, but demanding environment that has pushed me to keep getting stronger.
This is my third box in three years and I feel as if I’ve found my next home. if you’re looking for a good box to scratch that CrossFit itch then this is the place. It’s small which some might consider to be its downfall but I consider that to be CFSO’s greatest strength. Personalized attention, the ability to learn everyone’s name, and a focus on technique are the things that stand out most in the small Box environment. Be forewarned: if you aren’t willing to try, or have trouble being coached, this is not the box for you. Wear your humble pants and your try-real-hard sweat bands cause you’re gonna need them.
Love this place! If my work schedule wasn’t so crazy I would have loved to continue. Maybe in the future!
At 52 I believe that I am the oldest regular member of this gym. I started coming because my body was falling apart after years of sedentary jobs. This was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but the payoff is more than worth it. The members here are all very supportive and the coaches give enough personal attention to make scaling the workouts to my specific needs easy without letting me coast. I love that all I have to do is show up willing to work hard, all the planning and thought is done. I didn’t give the gym a 5 because I am a teacher and I always want to leave room for improvement : )
Great people and knowledgeable trainers! I love the atmosphere and will be coming back again!
Great coaching and friendly atmosphere. It’s not intimidating and you can learn the workouts quickly and have fun doing it!
it’s been almost two years since I’ve joined the CrossFit and the experience has been phenomenal. In terms of the exercises , the diet plan , quarterly measurements everything is personally taken care by coach Ryan . .
If you are a long time lurker of crossfit, as I was, this is the gym for you! Small box, with very knowledgeable coaches, who will train you how to properly complete each lift, and a family like group to help push you through it all. Best decision I’ve made in my fitness life, and you should definitely do the same!
I started doing CrossFit after a couple of years of my roommate suggesting it, and I picked CrossFit Solid Orange simply because it was the least expensive local option. It also turned out to be a great option. Coach Ryan is very passionate and knowledgeable about fitness, which you see during every class. Classes are filled with people at various levels of physical abilities, and he’s able to both challenge all of us appropriately with tiered programs and give individual critiques when necessary. Whether you’re already in good shape and wanting to keep it or just thinking about giving something a shot, contact Ryan and give it a shot.
Crossfit Solid Orange and Coach Ryan welcomed me like family and helped me set a PR on Open 18.4 while on the road.
I dropped in at this box for a week and they were awesome. Everyone was very friendly (even at 5am) and the coaches were also uplifting and pushed you! The workouts are suuuuperr challenging, but they’re great at making sure there’s a scale for everyone at any fitness level. I highly recommend working out here, I only wish I could stay in Nashville longer.

Amazing gym and awesome coach! Forget about all those crappy gyms that don’t care about you and give you free pizza and bagels once a month(planet fitness). Coaches here care about you and really treat you like family. You will see results and meet amazing people too. All workouts are challenging for all levels (beginner, intermediate, and pro). Coach will take his time to explain everything and will push you beyond your limits!!!! For your own good!! Just remember to always listen to coach, because the wod might be harder than you think! Summary: This place is awesome!!!! Don’t think about it just do it!!! You can do more than you think you can!!!!! Please stop going to &@&[email protected] gyms and start going orange!!
The Train Of Pain
I always feel like I’m among friends when I workout. Great positive energy and nonjudgmental environment we are all there trying to better ourselves!
I have been working out at CFSO for little over a year and I absolutely love it. Great coaching staff, friendly and welcoming environment, and a great place to push yourself. Highly recommend that if you are looking for a box to join, that you come join CFSO!
I started CrossFit at Solid Orange about 7 months ago. I was hesitant to start, but I’m so glad I did. Coach Ryan will knows how to make the work out something you can do, no matter your fitness level. The gym is small, and has a family atmosphere. I love it!
I joined Crossfit Solid Orange as a 6 week “best self” challenge. This is the first time I had done crossfit. I’d been interested before, but never really had the motivation to get in and do it. Coach Ryan makes it easy to learn and understand the movements. He keeps the box fun and upbeat; while also making sure everyone is doing all that they can to better themselves. Coach Ryan and Crossfit Solid Orange are both fantastic, and if I had to go through and pick a crossfit box to workout at I’d pick Crossfit Solid Orange every time.
If you are looking to start doing CrossFit for the first time ever CrossFit Solid Orange is the place. I signed up because I got a free session and never looked back I quickly became a regular going 6 days a week. Coach Ryan and his team or coaches are amazing and have a ton of patients for a newbie like me. The only reason I left was because I moved an hour away. I miss the place, the workouts, and more importantly the people. If I could give it 10 stars I would!!!!
I have been going to this gym for a little over four months and cannot be happier with my experience. I had never imagined enjoying CrossFit as much as I do. The people are incredible, everyone is so encouraging, and the results speak for themselves. It’s a great community to achieve your personal goals and options for all kinds of workouts. I would recommend it to anyone.
Crossfit Solid Orange is a great place to work out. Everyone here is welcoming, Coach Ryan is helpful, and the price is very reasonable. In my classes, there were people who had worked out for years and people who were just getting started. Since every workout can be scaled, everyone walks out feeling like they were challenged and did their best. Definitely worth a visit.
They are amazing and work with people.
My first meeting with Coach Ryan, he made sure to find out what my goals were. I came to class nervous because i had never done crossfit before. The coaches were nice, encouraging and made sure to guide me and meet me where i was but also made sure to push me in order to get me better and stronger. It truly is a family atmosphere and everyone wants to see everyone else succeed. I have tried working out alone and several other gyms but i truly feel like this is the best place for me. If you want to work hard get better, whether you have never done this or have tons of experience I strongly recommend paying a visit to CFSO.
I love this place! I came in as a complete beginner and was very nervous at first seeing all the extremely fit people there but I have never been made to feel more welcome in my life. I have had a chance to work with all the coaches and they are all amazing and work with you. Whether you are a beginner who needs more instruction and time or advanced this place caters to both.
I have had a great experience at CrossFit Solid Orange. It is the second box I’ve been part of in the Nashville and it far exceeds the other. Coach Ryan is great. He is super encouraging and knowledgeable. And the community he has build is extreamly welcoming. I highly recommend CrossFit Solid Orange.
I have been inconsistent with Crossfit for about 3 years now. I went from gym to gym trying to find the right box and when I stepped into Crossfit Solid Orange, I felt right at home. The way this group comes together as a family and helps everyone achieve what they want is absolutely amazing. Ive been consistent now for the past year and I owe it to this amazing fit family! Coach Ryan and Tjay are some of the best motivators and coaches I could ask for.
I started my Crossfit journey here 2 weeks ago and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Coach Ryan pushes you each day to be better than you were the day before. I definitely recommend this gym! The team environment there makes you feel right at home.
I’ve been a member of Crossfit Solid Orange for almost a year now, and I can confidently say that it has done nothing but improve my life. I’ve seen gains in my strength, endurance, and especially in friendship. While Crossfit Solid Orange is a tight knit group, everyone is very inclusive, and watching this little family grow has been such a joy. Coach Ryan is personally invested in the betterment of all of his members. I walk away every night happier and more energetic than when I entered. If that alone isn’t reason enough to give it a try, I don’t know what is!
Ryan is a beast! He is well-respected in the CrossFit community because of his commitment to excellence, passion and accountability. He is incredibly knowledgeable and caring; ideal combination of anyone who needs to have the proper amount of empathy and sternness to ensure positive results and transformations, both physically and mentally. If anyone is looking for a CrossFit gym or personal trainer, Ryan and CrossFit Solid Orange is your team.
I cannot say enough good things about CrossFit Solid Orange. I was completely new to CrossFit but I wanted to join in the hopes that the class atmosphere would hold me accountable to exercising regularly. I felt very welcome on day one and every day since then. The coaches are great – they treat everyone equally, no matter your skill level or how long you have been attending. For someone who used to dread working out, I now look forward to classes. Bottom line: if you want an excellent workout with a community feeling, CFSO is the place for you.
I had tried on ramp sessions at other boxes before, but the atmosphere just didn’t grab me. When I tried CrossFit solid orange, it was different! I loved the work. I loved the atmosphere and I loved Coach Ryan! He’s great, attentive, encouraging (even when you don’t want it), and chal…
Ryan cares about his clients.

I’ve been working out at CrossFit Solid Orange for 4 months now, and I absolutely love it. Coach Ryan is fantastic. He is professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable. I trust him to lead me safely through challenging workouts.

Dropped in today. Awesome class format—very encouraging and supportive atmosphere. 10/10 recommend!
I’ve discovered that I actually prefer smaller gyms. The perks are knowing people more personally, developing friendships with people who share common interests, & unconditional support, no matter what your abilities or background.
If you are a long time lurker of crossfit, as I was, this is the gym for you! Small box, with very knowledgeable coaches, who will train you how to properly complete each lift, and a family like group to help push you through it all. Best decision I’ve made in my fitness life, and you should defi…
Best box in town. Super ripped now and I owe all to Ryan for motivating me to do more than I thought was possible… Great guys all around.
Been coming since September 2018 and have absolutely loved it. Is it hard? Yes! But is it impossible? definitely not!! Everyone should try a class and you will see the hard work and community that makes this place great
At first I had some misunderstanding with The coach, he thought I won’t enjoy the club/class because his box is small. After a few emails I made myself clear that I don’t care how many people at the class … I came over to the club, Everyone were super nice and tried to make me feel part of the …

Dropped in two days in row over the holiday and had a blast at this place. If you haven’t tried CrossFit before, this is a great place to start no matter your age, weight, or ability. I absolutely loved working out there — the staff and the facilities both are excellent! I would definitely …
I dropped in from out of town last week and I had a great experience! Coach Ryan was a great instructor and motivator. I Would highly recommend this box to anyone that is in town for a few days and looking to drop in! I will for sure be back the next time I am in Nashville!
