How XS CrossFit started
XS CrossFit was founded by a former athlete who had a passion for fitness but was bored of the traditional globo (commercial) gyms. I was pushed into CrossFit by a roommate in college and have been thankful ever since. I love CrossFit because it is incredibly effective, scalable for everyone, never boring, and it can be done anywhere. I started this gym in my front yard, in San Jose CA, with a few friends and many weird looks from neighbors. What was a front yard gym is now a beautiful, 2200 square-foot facility in Parker CO.
Why are we different from Commercial Gyms?
The Fitness industry and big commercial gyms have failed most people leaving them confused and out of shape. At XS CrossFit, we require you to think, to use your brain as well as your muscles, to learn, to challenge yourself, to try new things you never thought you could, to practice new skills that require you to be focused and present. We teach you how to move your body with proper mechanics, stability, balance, and agility. We do this so that when you’re NOT with us, you can still achieve your goals.
Is CrossFit right for you?
Our members vary in type from those who have sat behind a desk for 20 years to college athletes in their prime. We vary the workouts by degree but not type. The demands of stay at home mommies and the demands of a firefighter do not change; everyone needs to be able to perform tasks. We have found that the fitter a person is, the more he/she is physically able to do the things that bring joy and fun to life. Being physically fit is inspiring, feels good, enriches your life, and adds both years to your life, and life to your years. People who are fit seem to have a clearer, more optimistic view of life.
Will you achieve your goals?
No matter what level of fitness you are at, we can help you achieve your fitness goals. whether it’s “I just want to lose 10lbs” to “I just want to look good naked” or “I want to meet new friends and have a Great Time doing it!” Our atmosphere is one of support and camaraderie to anyone willing to put in the work. You get personal attention every single class, and a healthier, fitter life is inevitable. Every workout is specialized and scaled for you personally, making each class like personal training, at a fraction of the cost.
Why One CrossFit over other CrossFit gyms?
CrossFit is not a chain or franchise, each ‘affiliate’ (CrossFit gym) is individually owned and operated. That being said, there can be great differences in operating hours, coaching experience, class practices, equipment offerings, etc.
Finally, CrossFit is FUN!
Our coaches and participants are welcoming, supportive, and committed to creating an environment where everyone can succeed.
