Please bring a water bottle and a positive attitude. You’ll work hard, but it will be fun.

Yes, we sure do. Couples memberships are second person half off (of the membership of equal or lesser value.) We also give a military and first responder discount of 10 % which can be stacked with the Couples discount.

Nope. We don’t believe in long term contracts. You can choose from month to month or a three month contract (discount for committing to three months). We want you to stay because you love it, not because you have to.

Most importantly, both classes are designed for anyone from any fitness level. From a time perspective, CrossFit wods at 865 typically last from 8-18 minutes while ShRED is from 16-40 minutes long. From a focus perspective, CrossFit is our strength training program while ShRED emphasizes conditioning. Additionally, ShRED will utilize ancillary moves not typically seen in CrossFit like single arm rows and agility drills. While both classes utilize our Accuro Fit Heart Rate System, typically it is used more in ShRED in order to keep focus on cardiovascular burn. (Please see program descriptions for more details.) Its win/win with both classes you get to train in numerous energy pathways in various different ways.

Each class is 60 minutes and will include a warm up including mobility and stretching, skill work, and work out/cool down.

While we do not provide childcare, we are a family friendly environment. We have a dedicated kid’s room that is heated and cooled where kids can hang out, watch a movie, and cruise on Wi-Fi. During nice weather kids are welcome to play inside our fenced area. We ask that parents supervise their own children and do not leave young children unattended. For small children we ask that all kids be safely secured in a stroller or carrier for the child’s safety and for everyone’s ability to enjoy the workout.
