Kalamazoo Strength & Conditioning has completely changed the way I look at my personal fitness and health. The coaches are extremely knowledgeable, the community is awesome, and the gym is huge! Since joining a year ago, I have gained strength, flexibly, skill, and confidence. My husband and I were both collegiate athletes, and yet we are in the best shape of our lives now - all thanks to Jack, Trinity and the Crossfit 269 coaches!

I've dropped into well over 100 CrossFit boxes and paid visit to another 100+ gyms; Jack Kelly is one of the most intelligent, well educated, and passionate coaches/teachers I've ever encountered. His ability to program, scale, teach, and exemplify "FITNESS" and "HEALTH" is spectacular. On top of that, he's surrounded by an amazing staff and community. This isn't a box JUST for CrossFitters, it's for anyone who wants to get better.

This is better than your regular gym! I've been doing some personal training with Jack for my upcoming soccer season at Olivet and lets just say he is getting me well prepared for that. He is one of the best coaches/personal trainers around if not the best. The atmosphere is great and everyone is very supportive. I absolutely love going there!

I LOVE this place! I am a 60-plus, nonathletic grandma who was not sure this was something I could tackle, but I desperately wanted to get into shape. Jack and Trinity and their trainers are supportive and so aware of my limitations vs the younger crew that works out there. The people that work out here are accepting and fun. I am so much the better person, physically and mentally, for taking the time out to come here!

~Karie Sortman

I honestly love this place and can't say enough good things about it. The people are awesome. The training is stellar. The gains are huge. Be careful though, before you know it, you'll be addicted.

I have been a member since January, and the coachs are amazing. They help you with anything you have struggles with, and everyone is so encouraging. I love how everyone walks around and high fives when you complete your work out. It makes me feel motivated and hyped to come back. I also like how Trinity and Jack encourage doin business with other local businesses. It is a great place, and I have made it part of my life style. My friends always say, "Here she goes . . . talking about CrossFitit again" Love love love it!

Crossfit 269 has taught me so much about myself. It has taught me commitment to health. The opportunities to improve and encouragement from the Crossfit 269 community and coaches are limitless. The strength and improvement I've seen in just 5 months is beyond anything I was expecting. Being here is always the best part of my day! The coaches are so knowledgeable, it truly is a school of fitness! You won't find a community of people committed to your improvement just as much as their own anywhere else.

CrossFit has been a part of my life for almost two years now. CrossFit 269 has been the gym I call home for the last year and it was the best decision I ever made. CrossFit 269 not only has a state of the art facility but the coaching and overall atmosphere is second to none. There are many CrossFit gyms out there where the coaches are unsure as to what they are teaching. There are also many gyms out there where the head trainer / coach doesn't pay attention to his students / clients. CrossFit 269 couldn't be further from either of those. Jack, Anthony, Kilo, Sara, Jordan, Brandon, Vince, Heather, Trinity, and Kate have one goal and that is to make you better. I would recommend no other gym in the country!

~Steve Antoniotti, DC

Joining CrossFit 269 has been by far the best heath related decision I've made, the amount of progress made in just two months has been amazing. The coaches and community are fun, knowledgeable, and supportive, couldn't imagine a better group of people. Looking forward to the future!

What makes CrossFit 269 such an amazing gym is the CrossFit 269 family. It starts with Jack, the owner and head coach. He genuinely cares about his students and is an amazing teacher. He has put together an amazing team of coaches who help you through your weaknesses and improve your strengths. When you first walk into to a CrossFit 269 you will notice, its not your normal gym.  People come up to you a say hi and everyone is friendly.  They make you feel at home, no matter what kind of shape you are in. They support you when your having a bad day and cheer for you when your having a good day. They have become my good friends. I though about joining a CrossFit a year earlier, watch a few videos and thought it was to hard and didn’t go in.  When I finally came in, I wish I had done it sooner.  I may not be able to do everything, but I have improved, and if I can do it, anyone can.

I have been a member of Kalamazoo Strength & Conditioning for six months and it has been the best fitness experience that I have ever had in my life. I have learned and experienced overcoming plateaus in performance can be overcome. The training staff works with your at your own skill level; everyone has got to check this gym out!

~Tony Thomas


Coming to Crossfit 269 was the best decision I have ever made. I was welcomed with open arms. I have received personalized care and compassion I do not believe would happen anywhere else. If you are looking for a place to come and become a better you, come to Crossfit 269!

CrossFit 269 is THE place for fitness and community in SW Michigan! As a former collegiate track & field coach, I've had the privilege of working with athletes from grassroots to Olympians, so coaching and training were important in my quest to get back in shape. Jack Kelly's training program is fantastic - he has a keen sense of the overall fitness needs and well-being of the members of this "box" and the staff at large is an exemplary reflection of his leadership. Whether you're new to fitness, looking to re-kindle the flame, or building on a fitness lifestyle, you won't find a better place to be, nor will you find better people to be around. You'll come to get fit - but you'll stay because of the community. CrossFit 269 truly is "Nulli Secundus"... Second to None!
