What is CrossFit? Get started here!


Why CrossFit? To get better results from your fitness routine.
People come to us when they need to get back in shape but can't do it on their own. Whether you don't know how or just don't have the discipline to stick with a workout program, we'll get you on track to get in better shape.


  

If you are ready to join, you can cut to the chase and go here for information on our current Training Startup Options




**NEW LOCATION: 1211 Allen Court in Rocky River, OH  44116  216-812-7841

Find us on Facebook - CrossFit Cleveland Facebook Fan Page

CrossFit training is based on high-intensity workouts that average 15-20 minutes, and anyone can do them.   We offer instructor-led group workouts for people of all fitness levels.  CrossFit works for everyone - Navy Seals, MMA Fighters, soccer moms and even lazy executives.

You workout in small groups with a trainer supervising everything.  We teach you the proper form and technique on the exercises and modify each one to your fitness level. The workout changes every day so you don't get bored. You will continue to get results, unlike other programs where you hit a plateau after a few weeks, get bored and quit. You'll be in and out the door in under one hour, including your warm-up, instruction, workout, and cool down. Doing CrossFit will get you in the best shape of your life. It's hard, but it works.

Watch our "What is CrossFit" video to see our clients doing our workouts and hear what they have to say about their results.





How to start.
We offer a Basic Intro Workout every Saturday at 11:00am at our new gym location at 1211 Allen Court in Rocky River OH.  Our new location is just a few minutes away from our original location on Madison Avenue in Lakewood.  You don't need to pre-register or sign up for anything, just show up about 10 minutes early.  You can attend three Basic Intro workouts at no charge in order to sample our training. If you prefer to watch the first time instead of participating, you are welcome to do so. Please do not be late. If you show up after the class has started, you will just be able to watch.

We also offer RAW Fitness Group Workouts four evenings each week. Our Beginner Fitness Workouts are held on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7:30pm and our HardCore Boot Camp Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30pm beginning on October 6th.  These workouts are an ideal way for new people to ease into our workout program.  You can attend individual workouts for $15 on a drop in basis or buy a Punch Card or Monthly Workout Package.  You can read a little more about these workouts here RAW Fitness Workouts

If you can't make a Saturday at 11:00am or one of our Beginner Fitness Workouts but still want to sample a workout, we will schedule a 'first-time' workout for you with a CrossFit certified trainer.  Please call 216-812-7841 to schedule your first workout. Or you can email bill@crossfitcleveland.com .

Where can I find out more information about your Executive Fitness Starter Programs?
We begin new 6-week Executive Fitness Starter Program groups every other month at both our Rocky River location on Allen Court and our original location in Lakewood at 17140 Madison Avenue. You can find more information and see how to register here Executive Fitness Program

Where and when do members workout?
 information and workout schedule on our CrossFit Workout Schedule page. These times are for experienced clients only. Unfortunately we do not offer unscheduled 'drop-in' sessions for new people.  Once you decide to join you'll begin with either our Kickstart or Quickstart Program to get you better prepared to join our group workouts.  Contact us or more details on these two startup programs.

Can CrossFitters drop-in?
We do allow experienced current members of out-of-town CrossFit gyms to workout on a 'drop-in' basis to do our planned workout of the day, Mondays through Saturdays, when they are in town.  Sorry, you can not use our facility to do your own programming. The fee is $15 per day or $40 for unlimited workouts in any consecutive seven day period. This also applies to previous members of CrossFit Cleveland. If you haven't been in for a while, stop in for a workout and see what's new. Please call or email ahead of time to let us know when you plan on attending. Please do not simply 'drop-in' unannounced.


How much does a full membership cost?
Our monthly Workout Packages runs from $110 per month to $150 per month depending on the plan you choose. We do offer discounts for active duty military, law enforcement and fire personnel as well as full-time students.

Joining our Ranks - Training Startup Options



If you are looking for ways to sample our training a few times before you make a decision to join, we have several workout times that you can attend on a 'drop-in' basis, including our RAW Fitness Group Workouts.  You can learn more CrossFit Cleveland training and about our Free Saturday Workouts here -->  learning more about CrossFit Cleveland.

If you are ready to start training with us on a regular basis, here's how you do it.


A monthly Workout Package is necessary in order to train with us during our daily group workouts. We have two startup options for you to choose from to prepare you to attend our daily CrossFit Workout Classes.


Our Quickstart Program includes one (1) CrossFit Foundations Session scheduled at a time convenient for you.We teach you proper form and technique for many of the exercises used in our workouts and show you how to scale and modify the movements to your current ability and fitness level.  The Quickstart Program is ideal for people who are in good shape but unfamiliar with CrossFit workouts.  The cost is $49. This fee is waived if you choose our 3 month Unlimited Plan below.

Our Kickstart Program includes five (5) one-on-one personal training sessions to better prepare you for our CrossFit group workouts. Similar to the Quickstart Program, we teach you proper form and technique for many of the exercises used in our workouts, but at a slower, more detailed pace. Each session is scheduled around your busy life. The Kickstart Program is recommended for people just starting a new fitness routine. The cost is $199.

*** We can give you a personal assessment to determine which option is better for you. Just contact us or attend one of our free Basic Intro Workouts on any Saturday at 11:00am. We are happy to talk about your options after you complete the class.

Once you complete the Quickstart or Kickstart Program, you can attend any of the group workout times on our schedule. You can get started by registering below. Once we receive your payment, we will begin the scheduling process for your first session.

We also have a six-week, 18-session Executive Fitness Starter Program for people who prefer a more structured, group approach to fitness training. New groups start every other month. You can learn more here about CrossFit Executive Fitness Programs.

CrossFit Executive Fitness Starter Program

CrossFit Executive Fitness STARTER Program:  This is our most popular program. We have a lot of people who join and jump right in the group workouts with our experienced members. However, many people prefer to have a bit more structure and a way to 'ease in' to a new workout routine.  If that is you, this program is perfect. You'll be in a small group with a set schedule, and have the facility to yourselves along with an instructor. We have 4-week, 12 session programs and 6-week, 18 session programs offered throughout the year.  If this sounds like something that interests you, read on:


Our Executive Fitness Starter Program is designed for those of you who are out of shape and want to get started on an exercise program that really works. If you finish, I guarantee that you will be stronger, faster and just plain feel better. You will lose weight, but how much is really up to you.

You don't have to be an executive, just someone between the ages of 18 and 80 who wants to get back in shape but doesn't know how to start.You will train in a small group of people (6-8 max) three days per week. A  CrossFit Certified trainer will instruct and manage your group at all times. You will learn the correct way to perform our Level I and Level II functional exercises using proper form and technique. All exercises will be scaled to your current ability and fitness level. If that sounds hard to pull off, it is. That's why we get the 'big bucks'!

In January 2016, we'll be offering our 6-week Starter Program which consists of 18 one-hour training session and the costs $295 per person. For those who have completed our Executive Starter Program or have previously had a CrossFit membership, we are offering our 6-Week Intermediate Program. Please contact me for more details or to request a particular time slot that is not currently scheduled. Call 440-915-7856 or email bill@crossfitcleveland.com .

FYLA - our CrossFit Executive Fitness Program starts soon

FYLA.  That’s right, it’s time to FYLA.  How you ask? Commit to three days per week for six weeks and we’ll teach you how. We’ll give you six weeks of proven activity and get you feeling better than you have in a long time. You’ll be on your way to getting in better shape than you ever thought possible. Our Executive Fitness Starter Program is perfect for people who want a set schedule and a controlled environment. You will learn how to exercise properly at your own pace and get better results than you’ve ever had with other fitness routines.

You will be in a small group of people working out with a dedicated coach and the entire facility reserved just for you. Each class starts with a warmup and then a skill session where you will learn new exercises to be performed in future workouts.  We will teach you how to modify or scale each exercise to fit your current fitness level. Following the skill session, you will participate in a group workout that varies from 5 to 20 minutes in length.  These workout change every day to keep you advancing.  You’ll end the session with a cool down and have a chance to ask any questions you have about fitness and nutrition. Hundreds of people have taken our Executive Fitness Starter Program over the past eight years, maybe it’s now your turn.

It’s time to stop with the excuses, we’ve heard them all. Our specialty is helping the lazy executive learn how to exercise and eat properly to feel better, look better and have more energy in their daily lives. The hardest thing to do is walk through our doors for the first time.  If you show up and follow the program, you will see results.  Often times very dramatic results.

You don’t have to be an executive, just someone who is ready to take charge and get in the best shape of their life.  What is FYLA? Fix your lazy ass.  Now is the time, let’s do this.

Experience is critical.  You want someone teaching you who has ‘been there, done that”. As I was approaching 40, I found myself completely out of shape and 40 pounds overweight. You can see how I looked in the picture along side a more recent shot while vacationing in Mexico a couple years ago. I figured it out for myself, now I dedicate my work to helping others do the same.



We have new groups starting the 2nd week of September in our Rocky River, OH location at 1211 Allen Court.  You can register here to reserve your spot.  We also offer the Executive Program on a personal training or private group basis to fit your busy and varied schedule. Please inquire about rates and learn how we can customize the schedule around your busy life.


Starter & Intermediate Program - 18 Sessions
September 2015 Start Times


We've had all types of people in this program over the years.  Young and older, big and small.  The common element, they had all let themselves go and needed a kickstart to get them back in the shape they wanted to be in again. Take a look through these pictures and you'll most likely spot someone who looks a little like you now.  They did it, so can you.

workouts will increase physical competence in 10 fitness domains: Cardiovascular and
respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance,
and accuracy.
All our exercises in each workout are modified to each individual’s needs, so every child can benefit
from our program, whether they are less active or an accomplished athlete.  By tailoring the
workouts, each participant will be challenged enough to see measurable results and personal athletic
progress.
“CrossFit Kids is not a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely, absolutely CrossFit
geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental
needs of that population” ~ M. Martin.
Your child/children will get much more than improved fitness at CrossFit Cleveland's Rocky River Facility.
We use fitness as a method to teach about responsibility, commitment and self confidence.  We challenge
your kids to be better, better kids and better people!!
