CrossFit Cleveland was born with one goal in mind, to help people get back in the best shape of their lives. Little did we know back in early 2007 that we would be involved on the cutting edge of a new fitness program that would change the way people all around the world treat their exercise activities and nutrition.

We were the first licensed CrossFit Affiliate in the Cleveland area in April of 2007. Two other local boxes became affiliated shortly thereafter. Since then, close to two dozen affiliates have sprouted up in the area, many with roots back to our little gym on Madison Avenue in Lakewood. Our community is rich in history, with long-lasting friendships fostered through the sweat and tears of intense workouts and never-ending support for each other. If you have never experienced the camaraderie of a real CrossFit gym, you owe it to yourself to give it a try.
