What is CrossFit Ground Up?

In the Spring of 2013 CrossFit Ground Up was born in a 300 square foot garage equipped with used barbells and basketballs filled with sand. From those humble beginnings and the founder’s passion for excellence rose a fully equipped, 8,000 square foot facility that provides Hastings with state-of-the-art strength and conditioning programs.

CrossFit Ground Up is basic, raw fitness. There are no gimmicks, fancy facades or secret formulas. What we offer is a proven process, member service and accountability at the highest level. We are a clean, tidy, and professionally run facility that has everything you need to train hard. Coupled with a positive, supportive community, results are guaranteed with hard work, dedication and persistence.

What makes us different?

Professional, highly trained and experienced coaches.

Our coaches are dedicated and motivated in the development of our members. We hold our coaches to a high standard of excellence in service and quality in order to deliver results to every individual that enrolls in our programs. Every member is given a primary coach that is personally invested in keeping that athlete successful and achieving their goals.

Process and programming

CrossFit is unparalleled in it’s ability to decrease body fat, increase lean muscle mass and increase athletic performance. We also know that it is sometimes scary and intimidating. In order to meet everyone where they are, we have developed a process that is proven to get results. Three levels of programming ensure that the beginning, veteran and competitive athlete continuously improve.


When you start at CrossFit Ground Up you will be welcomed into group of people committed to living a life beyond average. You become one of a proud, positive family, a clan, a tribe. Together we accomplish what we would never dream for ourselves; we do things we never thought we could. That success spills over into every aspect of our lives, making us happier, healthier and more successful.
