Why CrossFit Empower?

Are you wondering if you are fit enough to do CrossFit?

Don’t worry. We were all new once, even the coaches!

We’re ordinary people, the same as you; ordinary people enjoying the results of an extraordinary program. Believe it or not, we started out just like you.

Do you want to get fit? Do you want extraordinary results? We’ve got the perfect program for you! No matter where you are starting from.

The Empower coaching team specializes in delivering the benefits of CrossFit training to athletes over 40 and special groups including the senior-aged parents and school-aged children of our members. At any of our group classes you might workout alongside members as old as 85 or as young as 10.

Many members have come to us broken, riddled with sports injuries. Others have no fitness background, were unsatisfied with previous training results or struggled with obesity. We have been able to help them improve their body composition, bounce back from injury and create results they never thought possible. We can help you reach your goals too whether it is getting your first pull up, fitting into the clothes you wore 20 years ago, being able to run again, overcoming a joint-replacement surgery, adding years to your athletic career, discovering your six-pack abs and the list goes on.
Regardless of where you fall on the fitness spectrum our program can help you move in the right direction towards health and skills that seemed out of reach!
