Why should I choose CrossFit Clintonville?

When we founded CrossFit Clintonville in 2014, we focused on four things that make our gym special:

1. Coaches with broad fitness credentials

Our coaches are CrossFit certified, but they also have credentials in personal training, physical therapy, gym management, and dozens of sports. We hire positive coaches who take the time to learn people’s names, address your concerns, and support you in using CrossFit to meet your goals. Click here to learn more about our coaches.

2. Friendly faces and a positive atmosphere

It starts with welcoming coaches, and it continues with our diverse member base. In our gym, you’ll see working professionals, students, elite Olympic-level athletes, and grandparents cheering for each other and working out together. To experience it yourself, try our free community workouts on Saturdays at 10 a.m. or join our CrossFit 101 program for newcomers.

3. Clean and inviting gym space

With over 5,000 square feet of workout space, you’ll have plenty of room to move. And with our large variety of professional multi-use equipment stored along the walls, we can deliver a huge variety of workouts! We also have a spacious parking lot, a restroom, two dressing rooms, two lounge areas, storage areas for your belongings, cold drinks for sale, a small retail area, and a beer kegerator.

4. A simple drop-in class schedule + lots of Open Gym time

Our members can drop into any class anytime, no reservations or sign-ups required. If you’d rather work out solo, Open Gym space remains available during all group classes. We also have dedicated Open Gym hours several times a week. Click here to view our gym’s class schedule.

What is CrossFit? How can it help me achieve my goals?

CrossFit is a training system based on functional movements that you do every day, in life and in sport. For example, when you pick up a heavy box, you’re doing a weightlifting move called a deadlift. When you sit in a chair then stand up again, that’s an air squat. Those functional movements, and others, also play an important role in sports.

CrossFit is a system for training functional movements at high intensity. During our one-hour group classes, our coaches will help you lift weights with good form and move well at speed. They’ll help you warm up, cool down, and stretch so that your mobility improves over time. You’ll mix together elements of weightlifting, running, gymnastics, and other movement disciplines. And if you keep coming back for more, you’ll find yourself in the best shape of your life!

Although many people associate CrossFit with “stuff they see on TV,” CrossFit can be scaled (adjusted) to meet almost any fitness level. For example, here’s how four people at our gym might scale the same CrossFit move:

  • Elite Olympic-level athlete: Handstand pushups
  • Working professional and club soccer player: Military-style pushups with legs elevated on a box
  • Female college student who just started working out: Knee pushups
  • Senior citizen with limited mobility: Standing pushups, leaning against a wall

All four of these people are working the same muscle groups and moving closer to their fitness goals. And at CrossFit Clintonville, you’ll see all four of these people–and more!—cheering for each other and realizing their goals.

Our CrossFit 101 program is designed to safely introduce CrossFit to newcomers. You can also experience CrossFit at our free Community Workouts, held on Saturdays at 10 a.m.

How can I try CrossFit before joining CrossFit Clintonville?

Three options:

  1. Enroll in CrossFit 101, our four-class program for newcomers to CrossFit.
  2. Drop into our free Community Workouts, held every Saturday at 10 a.m. Our community workouts use simple, easy-to-learn moves in a CrossFit-style workout format. It’s a great way to dip your toes into CrossFit and meet some of our members.
  3. We know that choosing a gym can be an intimidating process. If you have any questions about Crossfit, our gym, or your fitness goals, please contact coach and co-owner Patrick Woods at info@crossfitclintonville.com
