About

The goal is to get fit, make it the best hour of your day, stay safe, turn up the music, high five some people, and blow off some steam. So remember that. Relax. Have fun. Work out.” — Pat Sherwood

What Makes CrossFit Albemarle Different?

Our training is intense, and it creates a bond among our members that can’t be faked or manufactured. Together we sweat, we bleed, we expose weaknesses and we get stronger… together. The community aspect of CrossFit Albemarle is our greatest strength. At CrossFit there are no ego’s, no room for bad attitudes. Those type of people just don’t last here. We are supportive, we are competitive, we are strong, we are humble, we are athletes.

We offer a 6,000 sq/ft facility located in Albemarle, NC. We specialize in coaching group and individual classes using the CrossFit methodology. CrossFit workouts are comprised of constantly varied functional movements (like pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting, and running) executed at a high level of intensity, which is relative to the individual and scaled for any fitness level. We are excited to share the CrossFit experience with family, friends and our community.

At CrossFit, we never workout alone. Instead, we train with a small group of other athletes and one of our experienced, professional coaches. By working with a small group of 10 athletes or less we give the personal attention that can’t be found at a large gym. Our coaches design different, fun workouts everyday and help customize it to suit each individual’s fitness level. There are even organized competitions for those that like to compete.

All workouts are 45 minutes or less and guaranteed to make us work hard. Our workouts are designed to improve our capacity in ten recognized fitness domains: cardio-respiratory, endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.

We strive to create a friendly and fun atmosphere that welcomes athletes from all walks of life. Our team is here to motivate and support you as you transform yourself mentally and physically.

Our mission is simple… improve movement. Our needs differ by degree, not kind… CrossFit workouts are the same for every person who walks into a gym. The only differences are the amount of weight used and the intensity.

Our understanding is that the needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind,” — Greg Glassman
