CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness. The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. We have sought to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency — not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, we asked what physical skills and adaptations would most universally lend themselves to performance advantage. Capacity culled from the intersection of all sports demands would quite logically lend itself well to all sport. In sum, our specialty is not specializing.
CrossFit is many things. Primarily, it’s a fitness regimen developed by Coach Greg Glassman over several decades. He was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way (increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains). CrossFit itself is defined as that which optimizes fitness (constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity). CrossFit is also the community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together. In fact, the communal aspect of CrossFit is a key component of why it’s so effective.

CROSSFIT CHANGED ME!
“I was extremely anxious my first day walking into Interstate Cross fit as I did not know what to expect. What I discovered was the most encouraging, motivating and friendly group of people I have ever met. I have been a member for a couple months now and could not be happier! I have already accomplished things I never thought possible and find myself setting new goals all the time. Kate, Nabeel and Tyree are great and really push me, especially when they know I can do more. I have learned so much from them already and look forward to so much more! I get excited to see what the next WOD is going to be and with the support of everyone at Interstate I know that I will keep improving! I am hooked!”
“Interstate CrossFit has been great. I started 8 months ago after I realized I wasn’t getting the results I wanted on my own. At Interstate, not only did I find a place to meet my goals, I also found a supportive group that have become friends and competitors who are pushing me well beyond any of my prior goals. I enjoy my time there the coaches have helped me go from zero weight training experience to feeling comfortable lifting daily, understanding the importance of what I put in my body, always setting new goals and stretching. Both CrossFit and interstate have changed the way I view fitness and myself.”
“I have been training at Interstate for 5 months and have lost 22 pounds and toned up in several places. Interstate CrossFit is not like a traditional gym. You have a support group that helps with every workout and coaches that are constantly pushing you to become your best. CrossFit has changed my life completely.”
“I had been interested in Crossfit for some time before joining Interstate Crossfit. Finally, I decided it was now or never, so I began my journey. The only thing I regret is that I didn’t do it sooner! I have heard it more than once that CrossFit can change your life, and for myself this is more than true! I joined Interstate CrossFit through a promotional offer in July of 2015. If memory serves me correct, I signed up for an unlimited membership within two weeks. I knew from the start that the program was legit for anyone who took it serious, no matter what their fitness level is. For myself, this was huge. I came into the box on the 1st day a mid 30s guy, weighing 215lbs, way out of shape, with very little athletic background. I am pretty sure the coaches and other athletes there that day never expected to see me return; but I did. I am still a work in progress, but seven months later I have dropped close to 35lbs, increased mobility beyond my belief, conquered mental challenges, become more conscious of my nutritional habits, and overall seriously improved my health. Thanks to Interstate CrossFit, the coaches, and the other athletes, I am a completely different person. When results began to show, CrossFit became extremely addictive. No matter what the current fitness level anyone is at CrossFit can, and will, change your life. I would encourage anyone looking for a workout program to at least try it.”
Congrats Manuel Ruiz! Manuel Ruiz is our May athlete of the month! He has been putting in 110% at the box EVERY day and has began to come out of his shell and make amazing gains. He has been relentless is learning new skills and is always working to get better! We love his drive and […]
