Yeti Cave CrossFit is a great choice for absolutely anyone wishing to become more fit and strong. I’ve been going to CrossFit gyms for seven years and I love that their workouts can be adapted for people at nearly any level of ability with infinitely scalable options. The coaches at Yeti Cave are particularly attentive and able, helping each person to continually achieve as much as they can. As a woman in my sixties, I’m impressed that everyone, not just the ultra-fit super-athlete, is treated equally well and helped to continuously improve. I’ve been able to do things that I never imagined. Nate Seitz (the owner) and the other coaches at Yeti Cave also spend considerable time helping each one of us with body tempering techniques to conquer the tightness and soreness that always accompanies a strenuous workout regime.
The gym culture at Yeti Cave has all the best of what I’ve come to expect from CrossFit. Each and every athlete is supportive and helpful to all the others. Every achievement is celebrated and members go out of their way to get to know each other. I couldn’t ask for a better place to spend my fitness time. Yeti Cave plays an important part in keeping me healthy & active.

I came to Yeti Cave ten months ago as a middle-aged, seriously unfit mother to a large family. I had never lifted a weight in my life! I walked in the door completely intimated and terrified of trying something new. I walked out the door that first day feeling so encouraged and supported! Every member reached out to say hi and Nate was just amazing taking time to coach me. The community at this gym is awesome! Ten months later and I am doing things I never imagined I could EVER do…thanks to incredible coaches and a super supportive community.

I have been a member for almost one year now, and I love this gym. All the members are great people and the coaches are even better. Nobody will ever make you uncomfortable, and you are always encouraged to keep getting better. I am a cyclists above all else and have never really been into lifting to much, but this place has improved my overall cycling and life in general. It will help you become a better more well rounded person, and its fun at the same time.

As a lifelong fitness enthusiast I fancy myself in shape and knowledgeable in the ways of the weight room. How wrong I was. My introduction to CrossFit was through the smiling eyes of Coach Nate Seitz. He invited me to his home gym (the original Yeti Cave) to practice the basics and to build the coach/student dynamic. Once I had proven that I wouldn’t hurt myself or other in the gym, Nate and I would lift regularly together in the mornings, over lunch, or after work. Even on the weekends.
He refined my technique with a kind and informative approach, encouraging me to always be better, and to leave my ego at the door and focus on technique, repetition, and then weight. I have competed twice now in the CrossFit Opens, and continue to share the love of the CrossFit community to the students I teach in ROTC.
Nate is an excellent coach and I am excited for those who will benefit from his mentorship.
Brandon Peer, US Army Captain:
I have known Nathan Seitz for eight years and during that time he has been a constant pillar of motivation both as a person and a trainer. Nate first introduced me to CrossFit in 2010 with a trial by fire workout that instantly challenged me both physically and mentally. Taking his time and training me in multiple aspects of the sport I realized I was instantly hooked. Nate was able to effectively explain the mechanics and specifics of each move in a simple breakdown for a non-lifter’s understanding. I have now been part of the CrossFit community for four years with this year being my first time competing in the CrossFit Games and I continue to ask him for training and movement advice. I am lucky to have both trained and worked with Nate and continue to respect him as a mentor.
