What motivates you/keeps you coming back to CrossFit Mudtown?
The community for sure. I feel very fortunate to have landed in a community so welcoming on my first try. Mudtown was the first and only gym I dropped in to once I moved to Birmingham.

All the people I’ve met while here.

A burger and cheese fries from Jack Brown’s (with a beer on the side)
