Our coaches have a wide background from active firefighters and first repsonders, certified USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sports Performance coaches, local team sports coaches, certified CrossFit Kids coaches, and ceritified CrossFit Gymnastics coaches. Our programming may be stout, but all the movements are universally scaleable allowing anyone to take part. We take great pride on coaching excellent form and taking all proper safety precautions, which allows us to see athletes progress by giving lots of individual care and attention. Safety and injury prevention is a priorty here at CrossFit Asperitas.

Our Mission

To improve health and wellness using functional exercise. CrossFit Asperitas offers a well rounded program using the three basic elements of CrossFit; Endurance, Gymnastics, and Weightlifting. Regardless of your fitness level, you can complete all the workouts and feel great doing it. The CrossFit methodology pulls from multiple training philosophies, bringing out the best from each in order to deliver a one of a kind program. The purpose of our training is to provide the greatest, healthiest, and most efficient results possible. Our training provides much more than speed, endurance, strength, and weight loss.

Quality Equipment

We also only use the highest quality equipment. Bar none,  Rogue is the best CrossFit equipment maker and we use a Rogue Rig, Barbells, Bumper Plates, Rings, Jump Ropes, Kettlebells and Plyo boxes.  We also use Concept 2 Rowers, Alder Kettlebells, Dynamax Medicine Balls, and some Pendlay competition bumber plates. Our gym is neat, clean, organized and well run. We expect all our coaches to be professional and take all safety precautions at all times. Our coaches all use the same teaching/coaching methods allowing for consistency of movements.

WOD Structure

Our CrossFit WOD is designed to challenge, motivate, and encourage our members. Each class is instructed by a certified Level 1 CrossFit Coach, and is about an hour long. 

It consists of:
1. A substantial warm-up
2. Detailed instruction of a movement, skill or technique
3. Strength portion
4. Workout of the Day

Who can participate in our group workouts? ANYONE that has completed our Foundations Course, as well as visitors with CrossFit experience from another box, which we welcome with open arms! We offer classes 6 days a week and open gym time several times a week, check our schedule for class times!

The amount of work you do in one of our classes could never be matched on your own in the same amount of time. This coupled with detailed instruction, professional coaching and rock solid programming, you will undoubtedly get perhaps the best workout of your life.

“The social dynamic of group classes is extremely powerful. Run correctly, they motivate an athletic output that is only rarely matched in one-on-one training. The competition and camaraderie of the group classes motivated our line “Men will die for points” and the recognition that CrossFit is “the sport of fitness.”’ – Coach Glassman - Founder of CrossFit Inc., CrossFit Journal Issue 41

"CrossFit creates a bond between you and a complete stranger that unless you have experienced it, you can not relate to it.  Being able to look across from you to see others pushing themselves as hard as you is so empowering.  CrossFit allows you to push yourself beyond means that you thought were not possible, at the same time encourage those around you.  

It will improve your quality of life personally and professionally.  As a coach I love to hear how our CrossFitters are achieving personal success outside of the gym because of the gains they have made inside of the gym.     

With CrossFit there are no short cuts or magic pills.  There is only hard work, sweat and perseverance."

I got a taste of my first CrossFit workout back in August of 2012, and I have been hooked every since. It has changed my life dramatically. I am much more cognizant of what I eat, how I train, taking proper rest days, setting goals, and living a lifestyle that is sustainable and healthy. Understanding the proper form of the movement is so much more important than doing it faster or "RX" (as perscribed). As you are able to do the movements with correct form, you will undoubtedly be able to perform at a higher level with heavier weight. I am preparing for competitions on a regular basis and want to focus on the Olympic lifts (Clean & Jerk, and Snatch), and the movements that are are my weakness.
