Why CFR is Different

With so many CrossFit gyms in the area it is hard to know what makes each one different. Further, it is hard to know what makes one gym the best gym for you.  Be advised, all gyms are not created equally.  Many factors should be taken into consideration when deciding to join a gym.  You should consider the knowledge and experience of the owners and staff and if that gyms programming and training methods are validated with results. Additionally, it is important to understand the value of an individualized approach to CrossFit training, as opposed to a one size fits all approach. Lastly, it is important to know what a gym is trying to sell you.  Is it merchandise and supplements or is it training and fitness? At CrossFit REBELLION we stand out as a leader in the fitness community. Read on to see why.

 Experience & Knowledge:

We have assembled the most knowledgable, accredited and experienced staff in the area with over 26 years of combined coaching experience. Many of our coaches hold multiple certifications. In addition to coaching CrossFit, Several of our coaches have coached organized sports, such as football, basketball, soccer, track and field, power lifting and Olympic weightlifting. We bring a variety of ideas and viewpoints to the table. We utilize this vast knowledge and experience to help you achieve your fitness goals.  CrossFit REBELLION is the only gym in the area with a staff of this level of knowledge and experience. We have been following and participating in CrossFit since 2008 and have been open since January of 2009. We are not new to CrossFit. We have seen it grow and change and we understand the difference that does and should exist between CrossFit training and the CrossFit Games.


CrossFit Rebellion is one of the oldest gyms in the area. Most gyms have been around 2 years or less. We are established and have proven our value over the years. We didn’t jump on the bandwagon when CrossFit became popular. When we opened in 2009 most had never heard of CrossFit and it took us an entire year to gain 20 members. It was not an easy business but we did it because we believed in it 100%, we were passionate about it and we wanted to share our passion with others. Those are still our driving forces today. We are a family owned establishment. We pride ourselves on knowing each of our members. We are not part of a franchise, nor did we start out with a group of investors. Because we built our gym without outside influence, we can do what is in your best interest. We don’t answer to a corporate office or group of investors. Additionally, we are not busy trying to sell you merchandise and supplements. At CrossFit REBELLION our focus is on you and your fitness. We earned our place as a leader in the community through dedication and hard work. This is something that sets CrossFit Rebellion apart from many gyms in the area. It is something that gives us great pride.


Many gyms program on a day to day basis. At CrossFit REBELLION we program 8 weeks in advance. This allows us to pick out and address weaknesses and gaps in our program. This ensures that your are getting the best training program possible. We analyze results. We track progress to make sure that our programming is delivering the desired outcomes. In addition to sound programming, it is important to note that our coaches coach and instruct during classes. Many gyms allow their coaches to workout with classes they are instructing. This will never be accepted at CrossFit REBELLION. Coaching and instruction is why you came here and it is what you can expect each time you train here.


We have the knowledge and experience to coach you as an individual while participating in a group class. We recognize that CrossFit is not a one size fits all program. Many gyms don’t seem to understands the value of appropriate scaling and modification. Each person requires an individualized approach. We deliver this to our athletes on a daily basis.  Because we are a single owner gym, you can be reassured that you are a priority to us every time you are in the gym.  We are here to help you reach your goals. Your fitness is our passion.
