WHY CROSSFIT171?

As the premier CrossFit gym in Lake Charles, CrossFit171 is more than just another gym. We are a community that provides support, education, and encouragement in order to help you achieve your fitness goals.

COMMUNITY

Beyond the tremendous health benefits of the workouts, nutrition, or lifestyle, CrossFit has captured an element of society that has long been disappearing and instills a sense of community and social belonging in its members.

FACILITY

With our 4,000+ square foot facility, CrossFit171 is equipped and prepared to meet the expectations of everyone who walks through our door— from the first-timer looking for an introduction to CrossFit to world-class CrossFit athletes.

LOCATION

Less than 8 miles from downtown Lake Charles and 4 miles from Interstate-10, CrossFit171 is easily accessible to residents of surrounding Southwest Louisiana, as well as visitors to local industry, casinos, and other attractions.

WHAT IS CROSSFIT??

FITNESS

CrossFit makes use of three different standards or models for evaluating and guiding fitness. Collectively, these three standards define the CrossFit view of fitness. The first is based on the ten general physical skills widely recognized by exercise physiologists. The second standard, or model, is based on the performance of athletic tasks, while the third is based on the energy systems that drive all human action. (source: crossfit.com)

HEALTH

There is another aspect to the CrossFit brand of fitness that is of great interest and immense value to us. We observe that nearly every measurable value of health can be placed on a continuum that ranges from sickness to wellness to fitness. See table below. Though tougher to measure, we would even add mental health to this observation. Depression is clearly mitigated by proper diet and exercise, i.e., genuine fitness. (source: crossfit.com)

SAFETY

Every case of an injured athlete is unfortunate, but it’s no more unfortunate than the people who hurt their backs because they never learned to pick up something heavy… A completely safe training program is doomed to produce only couch potatoes. The safety of strength & conditioning programs, including CrossFit, is very good, especially when compared to sports like basketball, football, and soccer. (source: crossfit.com)
