  • I have trained under Zach Filer for over 2 years. I have gain confidence not only in my physical abilities but in taking on new challenges in my life that have nothing to do with working out. I am a happier, healthier person for training under this leadership at Morgan Junction CrossFit.

  • Morgan Junction CrossFit has made me a happier healthier woman. Never having been an athlete before, I am now an amazing role model to my kids, an advocate of good health, and a part of a community that I adore. I keep my morning workouts with this West Seattle crew a sacred part of my day that I look forward to with great enthusiasm.

  • This gym– this club– and its programming will challenge you beyond anything you thought you could do– the workouts and fitness while its core is nothing measured against the friendships it has brought into my life....and the community it has built.

  • Thanks to Zach Filer and the crew at Morgan Junction CrossFit in West Seattle, I am fitter and stronger than I have ever been. The coaches and the community are amazingly supportive whether your goal is to compete or simply improve your strength and endurance.

  • In this explosive time for the CrossFit brand just about anyone can hang a banner and do alright by people through a random mash of WODs. This place is different.

  • When I first started training with Zach Filer and Marissa Luchau more than two years ago, I couldn't do a pull-up or a push-up, and I'd never touched a barbell or a kettlebell. They have never once made me feel badly about what I could or couldn't do, but have always pushed me - and still do. Over time, working with them, I've come to see myself in a way I never imagined I would - as someone who is strong and physically capable. Every day with them is both fun and challenging.

  • Strength is one thing in life that is truly earned. You absolutely get out of it, what you put into it. The coaches at Morgan Junction CrossFit have pushed me to believe in my own strength. To want it.

  • Never would I have imagined that these past two and half years here in West Seattle would have been such a life changing experience. Never would I have imagined being part of something so much bigger: a family.
