Our mission is to provide Elite Fitness for Everyday people and we are able to do this with the support of an amazing community. We train doctors, nurses, firefighters. policemen, veterans, moms, contractors, secretaries, hair stylists, and even professional athletes currently in the NFL. Every person comes together with the guidance and instruction of our world class coaching staff. What should you look for in a CrossFit Gym? Not all CrossFit Gyms (or Boxes) are the same. This is how we prioritize a great CrossFit Box:
Coaches should have multiple certifications in CrossFit Instruction. ranging from Sports Training to Mobility, Kinesiology, Gymnastics, Endurance, Nutrition, or even CrossFit Kids! Our pursuit of continued education is never ending. Coaches have backgrounds in Professional Athletics. Collegiate Athletics and have received countless accolades for their athletic capabilities. All staff at a CrossFit should be full time and each coach has a vested interest in the community and providing experiences which exceed the fitness expectations for every single person that walks through the doors. A variety of classes and class times Monday through Sunday to provide an opportunity for any fitness community to accomplish their fitness goals with no excuses.
The design of each workout of the day (programming) is the MOST important difference across CrossFit Boxes. Excessive repetitive movements, improper scaling (making workouts that fit ones goals and ability's), or complex exercises under fatigue can leave people sore and lead to potential injury. Coaches at a well run CrossFit should have numerous years in programming and in the tracking of CrossFit workouts. The results, along with ongoing client & Coach feedback have helped Citizen CrossFit for example, create incredibly effective workout programming for ALL of our clients, including our beginning members, master athletes, teens and top athletes interested in competition.
We are one of the top five largest CrossFit gyms in the country at 20,000 square feet! Our size allows us to ensure that every athlete has their own equipment. An amazing CrossFit should not have to base their workout programming decisions on equipment or lack of space. There is no right, wrong, or better way to run a box in our opinion. There is efficient and less efficient.
CLIENT TO COACH RATIO
With our space we are able to accommodate group classes but still provide a personal experience between athlete and coach. Our goal is to maintain an 8:1 athlete to coach ratio and do not offer classes of more than 15 athletes which means whether you've been a member for years or are just starting, there will be a qualified coach who will guide and encourage you from start to finish.
Owners should spare no expence and should constantly be reinvesting into the box and strive every day to provide more and improve upon every experience. There is never a point where a CrossFit Box has arrived. There is always room to get better!
This is what we think matters when choosing a box.
