At CrossFit Eminence in Thornton, CO, we realize that while many people have heard of CrossFit, there are a lot of misconceptions and confusion out there. We want our Denver area community to know more about this life-enriching lifestyle. Find out more about how CrossFit workouts can benefit you.

What Is CrossFit?

CrossFitCrossFit isn’t just a trendy phrase or a new series of popular workouts – it’s truly is a lifestyle. When you sign up for a membership at our gym, you’re signing up for more than a room full of equipment. We provide safe, effective, adaptable exercise, combined with sound nutrition to work together to help you reach your fitness goals.

Whether you are training to lose weight, working out to feel better, focusing on releasing stress, exercising to keep healthy, or preparing for that zombie apocalypse… CrossFit is for you! With constant variation and movements that resemble the way your body moves for daily life activity, it’s no wonder that these workouts make sense. You’ll never get bored, as each workout is different.

Why This Fitness Program Works

Combining unique physical movements and clean eating might not sound like anything revolutionary to you; we know you have heard that “exercise and diet” are the solution for years.

  • Constant Variation
  • Functional Movements
  • Proper Nutrition
  • High Intensity
  • Strength
  • Adaptability
  • Proper Wellness & Recovery
