CrossFit FIXX is all about the people and the family. Whether its yourself or your entire family, we want you to join our FIXX family.
As adults we know how hard it is to change and/or break bad habits so lets start them young and give them the tools to live a healthier life. Our “Beast Box” is where it all begins! The “Beast Box” is full of kids ranging from 4yrs – teens. This is where they will learn to set goals for themselves and learn how to deal with adversity that they can apply in every aspect of their lives. Our “Beast Box” kids, will be faced with challenges and learn that through hard work, they will excel. They will find new strengths and will quickly realize that their potentials are limitless. They will also learn how to encourage others and except encouragement to get them through tough moments. At CrossFit FIXX, we know that there is a special responsibility when working with kids. Guidance and boundaries will always be present to make sure that our kids develop safely and wisely. But most of all, our “Beast Box” kids will learn that fitness may not always come easy but it should ALWAYS BE FUN!!
Mom, Dad, Grandpa, Grandma, Aunts and Uncles, there is no need to sit on the sidelines. If your kids can do this so can you and we encourage you to join in on the fun. Everything that our “Beast Box” kids will be learning and growing from applies to everyone. At most big box gyms there is no need or desire to get to know the people next to you on the elliptical trainer or Stairmaster®. In any case, they’re probably too busy watching TV or reading US magazine. CrossFit FIXX, on the other hand, is one hundred percent all about the people and family you “throw down with” every day. As CrossFit increasingly becomes a bigger part of your life, so, too, will your fellow CrossFitters. You don’t have to like everyone, but don’t be surprised if it turns out you do.
Anyone and everyone can do this and remember, a family that plays together stays together! Come join our CrossFit FIXX family.

Numerous clients of ours have come through the doors with previous injuries or tweaks and found relief from the pain by strengthening the muscles around the problem area. All to often people neglect exercising their low back due to fear of injury. Because of this they end up deconditioned, weak, and more susceptible to injury in the future from minor mishaps, which is usually what happens. Taking part in CrossFit will provide you a buffer so that you are less susceptible to these kinds of injuries. The movements and workouts are all completely scalable allowing anyone to take part.
CrossFit.com provides excellent programming. At CrossFit FIXX, we take the same approach with constantly varied movements and workouts. We choose to offer workouts that may be more easily scaled in group settings and address some of the needs/desires of our community. You are guaranteed to have one day/week be heavy loading to help address strength demands. We also like to provide people with a longer workout each week so they can get their “endurance” bug fed. Another approach that we have is to address weaknesses the gym may have as a whole. Things like overhead squats, Olympic lifting, or basic technique with bodyweight movements. Our philosophy is the same as HQ (constantly varied, functional movement at high intensity). We just try to meet some more specific needs of our community.
Yes, this is absolutely what we believe in. More and more research shows that shorter duration/higher intensity workouts yield higher benefits/results. Basically, it just boils down to hard work. But the truth is, the longer the effort the lower our intensity. If you run 10 miles your intensity (power output) will be lower than if you run multiple 400 meter sprints. CrossFit FIXX does go beyond 30 min on occasion, but the majority of our workouts are shorter in duration. If you have a shorter workout, you can work harder by nature which can lend to a better response, especially combined with the movements we do. No matter who you are or what workouts you do, without hard work you will not receive results, which is why we encourage you to work to the limits of your physiological and psychological tolerances.
In order for people to get bigger, especially women, there are two things that you would have to make a concerted effort to do. One: pick up very heavy weight on a frequent basis. This is not something we do. Yes, we are very much concerned about your strength and we do lift heavy some days. But this is not our main focus. Two: eat an extremely high calorie diet. For most to gain productive muscle mass takes quite the effort in eating the right foods in a high amount. This is also something that we do not focus on. The majority of the workouts we do provide your muscles with more contractile potential and not hypertrophy (muscle mass).
You can injure yourself in any activity, but CrossFit is safer than many activities people perform every day. We like to work with people in 3 stages. First: mechanics (learning how to do the movements with correct technique), Second: Consistency (the ability to do the movements over and over again with safe and relatively efficient technique), Third: Intensity (the speed at which you do the movements). One does not come before the other. We always start with Mechanics.
This is a common misconception. The most elite athlete can come into the gym and find a workout challenging. You will never be “fit” enough. That’s why we are here and offer scaling options for each individual so that you can thrive in each workout on a personal level. Fitness is a lifelong journey, we are never really “there”.
CrossFit is often difficult to compare to other fitness programs. We offer a variety of classes and options as well as some of the best trainers that CrossFit Headquarters offers. The reality is with the quality of instruction you get from our trainers; it is personal training at a fraction of the cost.
CrossFit is as hard as you make it. We encourage people to push to the limits of their own tolerances but only you can make the most out of your own workouts with the amount of work you put into them.
You could just follow our blog, but you would not get the quality of teaching from our certified trainers. Most people are not taught how to move correctly and don’t know how to teach themselves. You are automatically making yourself more susceptible to injury and leveling off in your gains by trying to do this on your own. It is also infinitely more fun when you are encouraged and held accountable by a group of your peers. Plus you won’t have someone cheering you on in your basement or local gym, like you have at Crossfit FIXX.
