We have spared no expense at creating a custom, results driven, and resourceful space for our members.

The CrossFit floor is modeled after the traditional Box with professional olympic lifting equipment, pull-up bars, muscle-up rings, ropes and other primary CrossFit tools. The open floor plan allows each athlete to safely execute skill movements, group WODs, and much more.

Our Personal Training floor is designed to bring the coach and athlete together with every resource they may need. With professional Rogue gear, wall balls, bands, and everything in between, your coach has all of the tools necessary to create a custom training experience for each member.

The Sweat floor is set up to meet the needs of our Sweat and FitCamp members. Group classes can enjoy the open floor plan, pull-up bars, dumbbells, plyo-boxes, and all of the other equipment that helps you get your sweat on!
