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.

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!!!

This “box” is pretty dope. Before being relocated I attended the 5am class. Everyone was extremely nice, patient, encouraging, all the things you would want in a new environment. The instructors took their time demonstrating the movements and always encouraged me to push forward. Not only did I feel confident in achieving my fitness goals, I was having a lot of fun doing it as well. I’d recommend this CrossFit gym to anyone.

I was scared of CrossFit for many years, but decided to give it a shot and I’m so glad I did. CFSO has such a welcoming environment and I’ve never enjoyed working out as much as I do now. I look forward to going (even at 5 am!) to classes. Knowledgeable and friendly coaching staff and great group of people. Highly recommended.

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 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!

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 : )

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.

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)

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.

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!

Jarrod Ricker

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.

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!

Tim Goemans

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!

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.

Anita McClinton

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 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 been going here for just over 4 months. I have made huge gains in just a few short months. Love it! Coaches are great at pushing you. Highly recommend.

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.

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!!

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.

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 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.

Jase Hackman

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.

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.

Antonio Carter

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.

Aaron Burrell

Apr 23, 2020

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.

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.

Meredith Dunn

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!

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!!!!
