We’ve cherry-picked the very best, most effective and most fun elements of other sports and training domains and grouped them together in ways to maximize their efficacy to optimize anyone’s athletic capacity. Bottom line: sometimes we go heavy, sometimes we go fast, and we’ll keep you safe and having fun through the whole process.
Programming in these classes can be scaled to match the athletic ability of everyone who comes through our doors. No single workout is going to be perfect for everyone, but we build programs designed to accommodate three generations of a family in a single class.
Quantifiable fitness. If you exercise regularly, you will become fit. That much is simple. The more complex question is; exactly how fit have you become? CrossFit is based on the principle of measuring your fitness across broad time and modal domains. The goal of any fitness regimen is to make you healthier, stronger, faster, fitter. CrossFit is the means to aggregate the data to measure exactly how healthy, strong, fast and fit you have become.
The most overlooked part of this kind of training is the community. We’re all in this together, and we’re all in for each other. A group-training environment is where people’s athletic drive flourishes; you’ll sweat, laugh and set personal records together. Come meet your gym fam.
The Bottom Line
You should try this. If it’s your first time, no one expects you to be the best. Just do your best. And these classes will make your best better. You’ll have the numbers to show just how much better you are. We play the music loud, we do some epic stuff and look great doing it. It’s a fitness party. Come hang out!

After you complete 3 hours of semi-private training with a CrossFit Coach you’ll be ready to jump into any of our daily group classes and start moving safely, efficiently, and effectively.
How much does it cost?
The On Ramp program has a one time cost of $115, plus tax. Once you’ve completed the 3 sessions you’ll receive a certificate of completion and you’ll be ready to begin the CrossFit classes. We recommend you come 3-4 times per week for the best results.
