“Finally, A Gym Where Everyone is Welcome.”

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.

Safety is our Priority

Foundations

Rather than throwing you right into CrossFit classes the very day you sign up at our Box, your coaches will get you started in introductory classes to make sure you know how to safely execute the many CrossFit movements regularly seen in WODs. These include the more basic, yet critical, exercises like the squat, deadlift and press, as well as more complex Olympic weightlifting movements, including the clean and jerk and the snatch.

Prevention

Like anything else, CrossFit is safe as you go about it in a smart and well-reasoned manner. At CrossFit 171, we take the safety responsibility seriously and injury prevention is one of our highest priorities.

It’s yet another reason for our beginner Foundations program. You need to walk before you run!

Rest

Rest days are an imperative part of fitness as your body needs time to recuperate while keeping your mind at ease. Rest allows the body to learn from and adapt to the recent physical stress, repair muscles, rebuild, and be stronger and better adapted for the next physical challenge (in our case, a workout). Varying the way in which you rest gives your body some time to recuperate.

Make a Change

Real People. Real Results

“I love Crossfit 171 because I found an amazing community and gained some best friends.  Also, Crossfit has helped me accomplish fitness goals that I have never been able to before, even though I was a collegiate athlete and spending all my days in a regular gym.  There is something about structured, goal-oriented workouts guided by a trainer and good music.”

Sara Pesic

“Great gym, great coaches, and one of the best communities of people in the area!  If you’re just starting, or someone experienced that’s ready for a change in your workout regimen, this is the place to be.  You could not ask for a better place to start your fitness journey.  ANYONE can do it!”

F.A.Q.

At CrossFit 171, our mission is to not only help you get into the best shape of your life, but also to answer any and all questions you may have along the way.

Check out some of our most frequently asked questions, and for any questions you can’t find the answer for here, feel free to shoot us a message and we'll be glad to help.

What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a fitness program created to make you fitter than ever before. It does not focus on one particular skill but makes you good at multiple skills as well as increase your stamina. CrossFit takes the best out of other sport and joins them together in a fun strength/conditioning workout.

What is a WOD?

WOD is an abbreviation of Workout Of the Day.

Each day there is a new workout, they are often posted online at the box´s website and of course written on the board when you come in to work out.

What does a CrossFit box offer that a regular gym doesn’t?

In a CrossFit "Box", if you are in a class, there is usually a maximum of 10- 15 people doing the workout, so the coach can assist every single person on a personal level. All the coaches are professional and have done a coaching seminar to be able to work at an affiliate.

There are all sorts of classes available at the boxes, not only CrossFit, but also yoga, METCON, Olympic weightlifting, gymnastic sessions and more. There is freedom to lift by yourself in an open gym too.

Is CrossFit right for me?

CrossFit agrees with anyone, no one is too old or too out of shape or anything. You will improve your strength and stamina by doing CrossFit, no matter from where you start. The workouts are always varied so they keep being fun while still challenging. The coaches are well educated and will help guide you through every workout and issue that you could possibly have.

How is CrossFit different?

It is so varied that you will never get bored. All the exercises work with multiple joints and use the body, unlike with body building.

All the movement are efficient and functional.

Crossfitters must be ready for the unknown all the time so they train differently every day.

Am I too old for CrossFit?

No.

You are never too old to try CrossFit. Just be careful to regard your age and background. If you are older than 40 and have never done any exercise in your life, then you should not compete with the 20-year-old. You can always show up and do you best, and even be better than some of the younger ones. Even if you are closer to 70 years than 40 you can still show up and I guarantee that every single person in the box will cheer you on.

If I have previous injuries, can I still do CrossFit?

Coaches will ask in your first class if you have any injuries or any problems in your body before starting the workout. If you have back problems for example the coach will help you find a way to reduce the strain on your back with a scaling option.
