CrossFit Executive Fitness Starter Program

**** New dates & times just release for July 2015

We're pleased to announce that we are expanding our location at 1211 Allen Court in Rocky River, OH  44116  *  216-812-7841.  Now all CrossFit, CrossFit Kids & Executive Fitness workouts will be held in Rocky River.

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 July 2015, we'll be offering our 6-week Starter Program which consists of 18 one-hour training session and the costs $295 per person. Please contact me for more details or to request a particular time slot that is not currently scheduled. Call 440-915-7856 or email .

Joining our Ranks - Training Startup Options

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.

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.

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 Beginner Fitness Workouts on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm.  These workouts are an ideal way for new people to ease into our workout program.  You can attend individual workouts for $10 each or pay $60 per month and attend them all. You can read a little more about these workouts here Beginner 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 .

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 first week of January in both our Rocky River, OH location at 1211 Allen Court and our original Lakewood,OH location at 17140 Madison Avenue.  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 Program - 18 Sessions
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.
