About Us

At CrossFit 717, we separate ourselves through knowledge and passion. Our owners and staff are not just equipped with the most notable credentials and certifications in the industry, they are also lifelong athletes—soccer players, football players, swimmers, weightlifters—on a never-ending pursuit of elite fitness.

Who We Are

Like any legendary sports team, we use our experience and knowledge to coach our athletes over hurdles and
beyond limitations, creating champions in the process. Translating that approach to our product means incorporating
the unpredictability and competitiveness of sports into each workout. No two games are the same, therefore
no two CrossFit 717 workouts are the same. There’s no better way to prepare for the unknown than by tackling it head on.

Community

We may be somewhat biased, but we believe we have the best members of any affiliate, anywhere. Yes, we have doctors. We also have lawyers. We have carpenters, engineers, salespeople, students, nurses, athletes, and many many more.

Our members are as diverse as they are driven. They’re the kind of people who never, ever quit, but who will always stop to lend a helping hand. They’re kind, they’re courteous, and they love a good time. Oh, and they also take their fitness pretty seriously.

There’s only one thing we don’t have, and it’s you. But we hope to change that.
