"I went to bell city for a week while I was visiting my husband in Bristol. Such a small and friendly crossfit gym. I attended 3 or 4 classes. The workouts were good and the people were even better. They were super inviting and nonjudgmental. I will sign up for their 1 week package every time I visit my husband. Also they were super affordable . I wish I could have gone to more classes while I was there."

"Bell City is AMAZING. Coaches are knowledgeable and genuinely care about each and every person’s progress. Everyone is incredibly friendly and supportive. Very family-like atmosphere that makes it a welcoming environment for all, regardless of experience or fitness level. If you’re looking to have some fun, improve your fitness, and meet some truly AWESOME people then you’ve found your gym. I’ve moved around for work a fair share and thus been a member at numerous CrossFit gyms throughout the country. Can say without a doubt Bell City is the best I’ve experienced. 5+ stars!"

Adam Bennett

"Extremely welcoming and motivating coaches and members. They cheer for you and help you along they way. Don’t be afraid or intimidated when you just starting out. They pay extra attention to the right technique, not how much you lift. Sucks that I moved away."
