Philosophy

CFSF is team of dedicated members and coaches committed to making your training and conditioning toward Elite Fitness empowering, possible, and rewarding. Our coaches are absolutely 100% committed to the success of each person who trains here.

System

CrossFit Sioux Falls has created a training system that includes world class coaching, a fool proof training program comprised of CrossFit, Olympic Lifting and Endurance, and a vehicle for clients to transform themselves physically and mentally. Our system has a structure in place that imposes expectations, accountability and encouragement.

We create our own in house programming influenced by our athletes.  Each workout is scalable from beginners up to advanced athletes.  There are options for more/less weight, time or substituting the ‘progression’ of the movements suitable to your level.  Can’t do the 3 sets of 10 pull-ups in the WOD (workout of the day)? Use a band, or do ring rows that build you toward pull ups.  More advanced? Do chest to bar pull-ups or muscle ups instead.  Everyone in the class is challenged every workout.

My early passions in fitness centered around running everything from 5k’s to marathons. With aspirations to work with kids and adults in my own gym one day, CrossFit has given me the avenue to work with both.  It’s a joy seeing everyone achieve goals they never thought possible.

CrossFit Sioux Falls has been many different things for me: gym, community, work place, and even second family. The people are what make this place great. Without them this would just be a big space with a bunch of random equipment. It is truly my pleasure to watch CrossFit Sioux Falls transform people, in so many different ways. If you don’t believe me come in and check it out for yourself!
