About CrossFit

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. We use constantly varied, functional movements in a high intensity way that delivers dramatic fitness results for athletes of all levels of skill and experience:
  • Constantly Varied: You will rarely do the same workout twice at CrossFit St Paul. By doing something different every time you work out you keep the body guessing and eliminate plateaus and boredom common in traditional programs.  Certain “benchmark” workouts, however, are repeated every 2-3 months to measure performance increases.
  • Functional movements: Our goal is to prepare our athletes for life’s obstacles. We do that by using training that mimics life – running, jumping, throwing, squatting, pulling, pushing.
  • High intensity: Performing vigorous exercise in a high intensity way is the most effective way to elicit positive changes in performance and body composition. We do this by timing most of our workouts and completing them as fast as safely possible.

How it Works

Showing up for the workout is all that’s required, whether you’re using personal training or our group fitness classes. We provide programming and professional instruction that will safely and efficiently build your overall physical fitness. You’ll work harder than you’ve ever worked in your life, but you’ll have fun too, we promise!

Why We’re Different

We utilize a holistic approach that builds capacity in the ten recognized aspects of fitness – cardio respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, power, flexibility, speed, agility, coordination, balance, and accuracy. Our programming provides measurable results that can be sustained over a lifetime, and our instruction empowers our athletes to live healthy, active lifestyles.
