Welcome to CrossFit Fresno
We are a private strength and conditioning facility located in the heart of the Central San Joaquin Valley. At CrossFit Fresno we believe in quality coaching, efficient workouts, setting goals, and tracking progress on a daily basis.
We believe in hard work and dedication because after all, what you get out of your workouts is directly proportional to what you put into them. We believe in training movements not muscles. We believe in blurring the line between cardio and strength training. We believe in the importance of intensity and that routine is the enemy because workouts should constantly challenge you both physically and mentally. We believe in safety and technique because it isn’t just practice that makes perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. We believe in the support, friendly competition, and most importantly the fun found in a community of like-minded individuals all committed to the pursuit of bettering their lives.
If you believe you’re ready to make this commitment, we’re ready for you to join us at CrossFit Fresno.
THE SIMPLE AND ELEGANT TRUTH OF CROSSFIT posted February 21, 2014 on crossfitlisbeth.com:
You know what I love about sport? It doesn’t discriminate. The barbell doesn’t care if I’m gay or straight. It also doesn’t care if I’m black, or if my mom and dad were Latino or Lithuanian. The barbell doesn’t know that I’m a woman. A deadlift is a deadlift for me, or for a man or a child. The pavement doesn’t rise or fall under my feet because I prayed to this god and not that one. Burpees are burpees for the young and the old. Bumpers don’t give a damn where I live. Pain will come calling, no matter whether I have a lot or a little in my bank account.
And you know what I love about CrossFit? All CrossFit wants from me is effort and a desire to get better. The minutes and seconds tick off the clock at the same pace if I vote conservative, libertarian, liberal, or not at all. “Time!” is pronounced differently as a word in English or Russian or French, but it has the same meaning: your workout is finished. Sweat angels darken every mat.
In a world that tries to remind us of the differences between people, CrossFit reminds us that, fundamentally, we are all the same. In order to maintain our health, all humans need functional movement. And so here we have training centered on the concept that everyone needs these basic movements. And, in that CrossFit workout, we can make modifications for the differences between individual human beings while at the same time acknowledging our sameness. That’s a beautiful concept, simply and elegantly rendered. In our rush to improve, it’s something we rush by, but it deserves attention, and it deserves applause.
Thank you, CrossFit. In a world that often seems to be trying to tell me that I don’t belong, you tell me that I do.
