About Us

MEET US

CrossFit Roots

We opened CrossFit Roots with the belief that everyone – young, old, beginner, elite, recreational outdoor enthusiast, stay-at-home parent, artist, doctor, writer, executive, overweight, injured, pregnant, black, white, gay, straight – deserved world-class fitness.

We are the home for fitness misfits – those who believe in the CrossFit methodology, hard work, dedication, responsibility, and the power of community. We turn our heads to gimmicks, quick fixes, and fancy facades.

These are the ties that bind.

We look forward to working out. We embrace challenges knowing that we’re in an environment of people who each face their own challenges every day. We train hard and together. We eat clean because it’s our way of life. We celebrate one another’s accomplishments out of a genuine desire to see everyone succeed. We don’t go to the gym to burn calories but to challenge our bodies, be with our community, and feed our souls.

World Class Coaches

It’s easy to say you have experienced, dedicated, and knowledgeable coaches – to deliver on that is what sets CrossFit Roots apart.

At CrossFit Roots, our team is made up of individuals who have made coaching their full-time profession. They hold numerous fitness certifications, including CrossFit Level 1, 2, 3, and 4, USAW, and CSCS. They make up the only coaching staff in the world with seven CrossFit Level-4 and Level-3 trainers.

What makes them stand out from the rest is the application of this knowledge and a track record of helping athletes of every ability level grow, succeed, and develop day in and day out over many years.

We believe that every athlete has untapped human potential and that everyone deserves world-class coaching.
