Meet The Team

Our trainers are some of the best when it comes to survival of the fittest

What is Crossfit?

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.

Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

South Charlotte CrossFit is a coaching/training facility. You will have certified CrossFit trainers coaching every single day. At a local globo gym like the YMCA or 24 hour box, you may only pay $50 a month. This small fee simply gives you access to their gym. Inquire about personal training there and you’ll see the value of our Coaching Membership. In our mid-atlantic region, 12-15 personal training sessions can cost you over $700 per month plus the cost of membership/access fees.

We are a (incredibly small) fraction of that price — you will get better results, have a support group of fellow like-minded trainees, and actually WANT to work out.

Our goal is to bring our Coaching Membership to you at the most affordable rates possible, which is why we are the most affordable CrossFit box in town (check, we truly are). In addition to professional training, with every new membership you will also receive a free CrossFit nutritional packet

Monthly membership fee also includes complementary running and/or swimming plans; to further your athletic development away from the gym. Challenge yourself with the same fitness tools implemented by US Special Operations Teams. Daily group WODs (workout of the day) coached by prior Special Operators and certified CrossFit trainers focus on functional strength, speed, endurance, power, core development, nutrition and of course our community. Break the mold!
