I am working on a flyer design, what is the right way to write:

  1. "Join us before we are reaching the limit."
  2. "Join us before we reach the limit."

And what is the difference between the two? Is there a better (native) way to say this?

The correct way is "Join us before we reach the limit." The other sentence is grammatically incorrect.


Before and after are hardly ever followed by a continuous verb-form. I think this is because they are used to give a reference time, and it needs to be a point in time, not an extended period.
