Our Story

KJ CrossFit was born out of the desire to create a place that allowed people to not only lose weight, but also become strong and balanced. We want to create athletes that are fit for whatever life throws at them, whether it is day to day challenges, or competition.

Our Approach

We LOVE CrossFit! We believe it is extremely effective and will help people reach many types of goals. CrossFit is the main form of training utilized in our gym. We also understand that there are things that can be added to CrossFit, in order to maximize results and prevent injury. Utilizing accessory work from strongman, Olympic weightlifting, and strict gymnastics, we are able to further enhance our athlete’s development.
