Simply put, CrossFit is the “sport of fitness.” Sounds crazy, right? Maybe not. 

CrossFit has turned the mundane yet necessary task of “working out” into a sort of game.

CrossFit is a training program that builds functional strength and conditioning with constantly varied workouts that are sure to provide superior results in all aspects of fitness. Our 1-hour classes start with a skilled warm-up to develop new skills or prepare you for the movements of the day. Then, we work in a strength element before moving onto the high-intensity WOD (Workout Of the Day).

We train your body to be capable of taking on any physical challenge life throws at you. Don’t want to make more than one trip into the house with an armload of groceries? We’ve got you covered. Need to sprint across the parking lot at work so you’re on time? No problem! Want to jump over tall buildings in a single bound? We can work on that too.
