ABOUT US

CrossFit SLU is a personal and group fitness training facility in the South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle. We utilize the CrossFit fitness methodology. We specialize in not specializing. We believe in a broad and inclusive fitness made for everyone: firefighters & military, grandparents, business professionals, people who’ve never exercised a day in their life, weekend warriors, pregnant women, the injured, rehabilitation clients, current and former athletes (scholastic, professional), etc. Anyone can CrossFit. Yes, even you. First off, email info@crossfitslu.com to schedule a free one-on-one orientation. We’re better at explaining things in person, plus you get to see what kind of things go on in here. Just come in and try it because nothing will make sense until you do. You’ll know instantly if it’s what you’ve been looking for your whole life. And, if it’s not, you can leave. No hard feelings. CrossFit is like nothing you’ve ever tried. And the results are worth it.

WHO IS IT FOR?

CrossFit works for everyone. Yes, it can include advanced movements and and skills that take time to develop. Yes, many of the workouts are fast and relatively intense. Yes, it can look really, really hard. But, the goal of CrossFit is to provide a structure for a better fitness that can be scaled down to meet any skill level from grade school to grad school to grand-parenthood. CrossFit is for anyone seeking to improve their fitness level and quality of being. People from all walks of life have used CrossFit to meet and exceed their own goals and so should you!

HOW DO WE DO IT?

We have all these wonderful toys – barbells, kettlebells, bumper plates, jump ropes, plyo boxes, gymnastics rings, medicine balls, dumbbells, dragging sleds, Concept II rowing ergs, AirDynes, mats, Rogue pullup bars, jump/stretch bands, sandbags, parallettes, climbing ropes, ab-mats, slammer balls, yoga mats, lacrosse balls, foam rollers, Rumble Rollers, sledgehammers, beer kegs, a couple of tractor tires, a hill, a big stereo, and, of course, our bodies. You can find a multitude of fancy equipment at fitness facilities (and some studios pride themselves on the latest and greatest), but the results lie in knowing how to utilize the tools to your advantage. We take out all the guess work and keep you injury-free by teaching you, progressively, how to use our toys each time you’re in.

WHAT MAKES US BETTER?

We make everyone an athlete. Our mission is to deliver professional CrossFit training to our athletes safely, and empower them with these means to achieve functional strength for life. Our concern is that each individual makes progress, not how many people are walking in through our doors. Each class and personal training session is given by an experienced, CrossFit qualified coach (and practitioner) who is dedicated to your success and well-being. You can come to our gym, have fun with a kick-ass workout and know that you have done something profound. We work very hard to achieve a specific supportive culture at our gym. Come revel in the camaraderie of CrossFit SLU and see for yourself.
