CrossFit West Ames was founded in 2010 with the goal of making everyone that walks in our doors better by helping them reach their lifestyle, health and fitness goals. CrossFit was still relatively young back when we started as athletes in 2008 and 2009. We were the only gym within a 30 mile radius for many years and we had a really special thing going on in our little neck of the woods. We had people driving from near and far to train in an “underground” network of people who had decided that easy would no longer suffice. We were still learning, as we always are, but we have grown so much over the years having trained over 1000 people through thousands of classes. We are so excited at how much CrossFit has grown so we can continue to share our knowledge and training with many more people!
We expanded our first “box” back in 2013 and then moved to our current space Christmas Eve of 2014. We can say with confidence and pride that we provide a top-notch facility, passionate, well-trained coaches, and an enthusiastic CrossFit community that motivates and inspires each other to unlock a hidden passion within themselves. It takes a unique personality to thrive in a setting where you push your limits daily, and as such the culture of our gym is something you cannot get anywhere else.
Through highly-effective fitness programs matched to the individual and healthy doses of encouragement and motivation, our gym members find levels of health and fitness they never expected, people celebrating their every success, and a multitude of broad, well developed shoulders to lean on in their low times.
