Our Workout of the Day is CrossFit. We've been a CrossFit Affiliate since 2008, longer than any other gym in Fort Collins.
We focus on teaching mechanics, then developing consistency in movement and weight, then we push intensity, all while having fun!
We believe that we can best physically prepare people for the world we live in through
constantly varied, functional movement at high intensity.
We care less about your numbers in the gym and more about what you can do with that fitness outside.
Why choose us?
We've got the most experience and best community around!
There is no such thing as being too strong. Strength staves off injury, illness and bears*.
Our program is strength-biased and we perform barbell powerlifting, bodybuilding and weightlifting movements on a regular basis.
*we do not endorse taking on a bear.
We use Starting Strength and 5/3/1 for our strength focus phases.
Mobility and Flexibility
We subscribe to the notion that recovery is 50% of fitness. If you work for an hour, then your recovery should be 30 minutes or more. Mobility is just a more precise way of looking at flexibility and range of motion. Splits are cool, but if you can't generate power, then what’s the use? We're followers of Dr. Kelly Starrett, DPT (MobilityWOD) and integrate his teachings.
Maximum force generation in the minimum amount of time. Think sprinters, Olympic weightlifting, max vertical leap and distance throws. We develop power by having you master the basics of lifts and throws, then do it faster with more weight. We use dynamic, weighted and unweighted full-body movements. We use barbells, dumbbells and kettlebells.
We run a Barbell Club on Sundays that allows us to focus on the Snatch and Clean and Jerk. These lifts often show up in our workouts. We set up Barbell Club for the folks that want spend dedicated time to further focus and improve on these complex and fun lifts. We use Catalyst Athletics templates, and Chinese Weightlifting, and USAW training protocols.
Stamina and Endurance
Not many people have the luxury or desire to go for an hour run. We develop both stamina and endurance by asking you to give close to 100% on your timed efforts. That way when you finally have to go long, you've got a deep well of energy and oxygen efficiency. We teach Aerobic and Anaerobic Endurance and P.O.S.E. methods.
Accuracy, Agility, Balance and Coordination are all developed through practice. Repeating movement patterns over and over create change not only in your physique, but in your brain. Challenging yourself in these areas can help stave off issues later in life.
Warm-up games and repeated compound movements achieve prime your brain for action.

Do you have the luxury of playing in the mountains a lot? Travel for business or pleasure? Cramming 30lbs of stuff into a 2olb bag? Then the punchcard is for you! (valid for 6 months from purchase date)
MENTAL STRENGTH TRAINING
We offer another type of training that revolves around tougher mental challenges. Longer rows, more reps, etc. The goal behind this training is to not only make you fitter, but give you the mental edge to accomplish headier tasks. Once you've rowed or AirDyned for an hour straight, the day to day workouts (and life) will seem a lot less terrible. Coach Michael specializes in this type of training.
Do you have an event, race, or test that you have to prepare for? If it's in our wheelhouse and you give us 6 weeks, we can get you ready for it.
