We Live To Help Train You

CrossFit is a functional fitness training program that builds strength and conditioning through extremely varied and challenging workouts.  Each day the workout will test a different part of your functional strength or conditioning, not specializing in one particular thing, but rather with the goal of building a body that’s capable of practically anything and everything. CrossFit is extremely different from a commercial gym…and not just because you won’t find any elliptical or weight machines, or Zumba classes.

Constantly varied: Each day there is a prescribed Workout of the Day. The workout might contain Olympic or powerlifting movements, gymnastic movements, and traditional aerobic activities such as running, rowing or jump rope. The best part about it is everything is scalable for every level of fitness. Some workouts are done for time, some for a score, and some for max weight lifted. Life doesn’t come at us as 3 sets of 10, so why would we exercise that way?

What makes us different? We offer 1:1 personal training sessions as part of your onboarding experience Ground Up. We do this as part of your first month’s membership. We care about your onboarding experience and know that CrossFit is for everyone, and one of the ways to ensure YOUR success is to dedicate the time upfront with you. We do this as part of your first month’s Unlimited membership.

We believe in fitness at all levels and ensure you have the resources to be successful at any fitness level. At Ground Up we care about HOW you are moving, not the amount of weight you move. Your long-term success with functional movement is our #1 priority.

We value our relationships and have a collaborative membership with the Hastings YMCA. Now if you would like to be a member of the YMCA and CrossFit, you can do so at a competitive value! We offer LeanFit as part of our regular class offerings. Not ready for CrossFit just yet? Try LeanFit!
