ABOUT PFCF

We are a family owned and operated CrossFit facility located on the west side of Colorado Springs. We opened Progressive Fitness CrossFit in August of 2009. Our goal was to create a CrossFit gym obsessed with proper movement, world class coaching and community. Since our opening we have become more than a CrossFit facility, we are a CrossFit family. We provide a training environment where both everyday CrossFitters and Competitive athletes can thrive. All are welcome and our doors are always open.

CHRIS HOPPE
Chris Hoppe, Progressive Fitness CrossFit

Chris Hoppe is co-owner and head coach. A former college football player, Hoppe weighed nearly 300 pounds at one time. He had the athletic background to make a good transition toCrossFit.

 

“I eventually got into personal training and like most trainers who discover CrossFit, I heard about it and instead of dismissing it, I started trying — trying being the key word here — to do these workouts, and at the time, it was frustrating because I wasn’t even able to overhead squat the 45-lb. bar, much less do what I felt I was capable of,” he says.

 

Chris went to the 2014, 2013 and 2012 South West Regional Games, finishing 9th, 5th and 5th, respectively.

Beth (Honey Cat) Hoppe, is co-owner, coach and mother to Chris Hoppe.

 

Chris first got Beth into CrossFit 7 years ago when he became her personal trainer. He’s remained her coach since then.

 

“He was putting me through CrossFit when I didn’t know it,” Beth said. “He’d make me do these crazy workouts and I’d say, ‘Sure, I’ll do it.’ Then one thing led to another and when I realized I was doing CrossFit, I was just like, ‘Wow, OK.’ It was kind of a surprise start to it all, and then we just started doing it together.”

 

Beth (known as Ma at the gym) came in 1st place in the Colorado Masters Open in 2012, and went to the CrossFit Games in 2014, placing 8th place overall in the Masters Division ages 55-59. Ma made her second trip to the Games in 2015 and placed 17th.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Dropped in this week while visiting family in the area. The owners were incredibly hospitable and made me feel like I had been a member of their box from the day they opened. I had a 3 great sessions over a five day period and can't wait to return on my next trip home. Give it a try if you live in the area or are just passing through.

This place has changed my life. No intimidation, nothing but support all around, and the knowledge they have is irreplaceable. They give you the foundations to become a better athlete. I'm addicted and proud!

- SUSANNA BARNWELL

I've spent the last week in Colorado Springs and, on my first day here, found my way to this family owned box. I'm very glad that I did. It's run by Chris Hoppe (a Regionals athlete) and his mother Beth Hoppe (a Masters Games athlete), who goes by the nickname "Ma." Both of them are excellent coaches--technically knowledgeable, enthusiastic, encouraging-- and extremely nice people. They certainly couldn't have been more welcoming to me and, along with the members I met, made me feel at home.

Awesome facility! Wish i could train here. Stopped by to judge an event they were hosting and the amazing people I met made the initial hesitation I had fade quickly. It's a little far away from me to travel out there regularly, but I certainly recommend visiting if you have the time.
