We believe that CrossFit, as an exercise program, can be a safe and effective fitness program for anyone regardless of current physical condition.  Whether you are an elite athlete, a couch potato, a grand parent or are recovering from an injury CrossFit is potentially the right program for you.

CrossFit by definition calls for workouts that are “constantly varied, functional movements, performed at a relatively high intensity.”  No part of that is inherently dangerous, and just as any program the safety and efficacy of the program depends on how it is applied to each individual.  To ensure a positive experience for athletes of all skills and abilities, we developed a progression which all of our athletes go through.

When we opened Lake Washington CrossFit, we did it with the intention of being able to utilize CrossFit as a tool to benefit people of all fitness levels.  We have developed our programs with that in mind and have found great success and results in doing so.  We refer to all of our members as athletes. We have athletes who vary greatly in age and ability, we are all getting better each day on our path to our true fitness potential.

We are a community.  We require our athletes and coaches to check their egos at the door.  We aim to Christmas Grouphold ourselves and our athletes accountable in our shared commitment to excellence.  We enthusiastically support the goals of all our athletes and expect nothing but effort and respect in return.  We are often competitive, always supportive, and like to have a lot of fun.

Our coaching staff includes backgrounds in sport-specific strength and conditioning, physical therapy, personal training, and olympic lifting prior to being involved with CrossFit.  With such diverse backgrounds, we do things a little differently than what you may expect.

We welcome the opportunity to show you around, answer your questions and introduce you to our coaches and athletes.  If it feels like the right place, great!  We will help you get started.
