What people are saying about R.A.W. ReBuild:

“When I started RAW Rebuild 5 years ago, I had no idea where this journey would take me.  I had been dabbling with CrossFit for a few years.  Due to kids/work/life, I wasn’t able to make exercise a priority.  I would workout here and there; several days a week, sometimes only once a week.  Every time I walked through those doors, I felt like I was starting over.  I was frustrated and ready to give up.  In a last ditch effort, I decided to researched the RAW class schedule one last time, determined to find something more consistent.  I came across a class called Rebuild.  Hmm…that sure sounded like me.  I was starting from the ground up.  I reached out to Amy Butteri to learn more.  She thought this class might be a good fit for me, so I decided to give it a try.

Our Rebuild class started small.  At first there were only 3 of us coming consistently, 2 days a week.  It didn’t take long for me to realize that this was what I had been searching for.  From the coaches, to the unique workouts, to the few of us who kept each other accountable for being there twice a week, every week.  Because the class was small, we didn’t want to miss a class. 

Fast fwd a few years and the word got out about this incredible HIIT class.  It is cardio intense with a great mix of strength conditioning.  What started with 3 consistent members has grown to 30+.  Not just 30 people, but 30 people who look fwd to seeing each other 3 times a week.  When 1 of us doesn’t make it…we care.  We are a family unto ourselves.  Supportive of each other, looking out for each other, sharing our lives and taking care of each other.    We are led by an incredible team of coaches who lift us up and challenge us to do more than we believe we can. 

The gains I have made physically, are huge to me.  It was never my goal to set any records or become a competitive athlete.  I wanted to be mentally, physically and emotionally healthier than I had been without exercise.  The most amazing thing is what I’ve been able to accomplish since starting.  A group from our class completed the Terrain race in Erie last month.  I’ve gone from struggling with 15lb kettle bells to consistently swinging 45lbs.  I couldn’t run 1 mile when I started 5 years ago without stopping several times.  Today, I can consistently run 5 miles without stopping.  I’ve just signed up for my first 10 miler in the fall in anticipation of a ½ marathon next spring.  The best part….we barely ever run in Rebuild.   The point being…I didn’t even realize the gains I was making.  

There aren’t enough ways to describe what this class and RAW have done for me.  It’s given me the confidence to try things I never thought possible a few years ago.  I’d encourage anyone considering this class to give it a try.  Commit to doing something great for yourself 3 days a week.  You won’t regret it!”

“What does RAW mean to me? Why do I get up so early and go to this place called RAW every M/W/F morning and on an occasional Saturday/Sunday?

It all started 5 years ago at age 55. After thinking about getting back in shape for years. Dealing with the daily stress of business. The reality that my health was not improving, some factors out of my control and many in my control. The stress of having an son deployed at the time to a small combat outpost in Afghanistan. Although successful in many people’s eyes I was a physical and emotional wreck. 

At this time in my life a work collegue and friend (Megan) encouaged me to go to RAW with her. Thank you Megan.

Nervous as hell I went and realized after a short period of time that as Megan had said this was a special place. A special place filled with friendly people who cared. 

After watching me struggle Amy referred me to a new class they where just starting. Called Rebuild, she actually told me she started the class just for me? I mentally committed to it for 3 months, that was 5 years ago. At the same time 2 other people joined the class Sandy and Elliot. The class was hard and having them to share the effort made going more bearable. We held each other Accountable and supported each other when things got tough. A group of 3 is now a community of over 20 on a regular basis. I am stronger, faster, and more fit than I could have imagined. 

But that’s not the whole story. That is not the secret sauce. RAW is my Tribe! It’s a place where I can go and do my best and no matter how bad that is I am never judged but only encouraged buy my piers and the people who train us (Lori and her crew at Rebuild are the best). I believe their passion for what they do and the way they care about us is demonstrated every time I go. Rain, snow of shine they are always there with a smile. 

Thank you for letting me be part of your Family at RAW!”
