Our big 5 year anniversary is this Saturday! If you missed the announcement for our Competition and Celebration, be sure to check the information below.

There’s only 3 days left to register your team! If you are looking for a partner, let Eric or Lindsay know and they will help find another member to complete your team!

The competition will start at 9:00 a.m. and end at approximately 2 p.m. Each division will complete three team workouts and a floater workout. We are capping each division at 20 teams. There will be prizes like Gift Cards from Luke’s Locker, CryoUSA, and more for the male and female team winners of each division! The cost to compete is $45 per team and includes a 5 year anniversary t-shirt. Registration ends October 21st.

Register here for Fun Division

Register here for Rx’d Division

Only one person from each team needs to register.

Division Descriptions

Fun Division: This division will involve movements that anyone can perform. If you routinely scale body-weight movements such as pull ups or use lighter weights than Rx’d, this division is for you. This is also for our first time in-house competition competitors.

RX’d Division: You should be able to perform all basic body-weight movements as Rx’d. For example: pull-ups without a band and HSPUs. You should also be able to handle loads typically seen in CrossFit workouts such as “Grace” or “Fran”. If you have done an in-house competition and didn’t scale, this is for you.

Volunteer Info

Not interested in competing, but still want to attend? We need your help by volunteering! You will be doing anything from counting reps, tracking scores, setting up/tearing down equipment, or coordinating heat assignments. Each volunteer will get a FREE t-shirt as a token of our appreciation. Please email lindsay@crossfitdeep.com by October 21st if you would like to volunteer.

We Are Different

With tons of new CrossFit gyms popping up all over the place, it has become more and more difficult for people to figure out where to go.

Be careful! We aren't all the same. Coaching, programming, equipment, community, and much more, all change from one gym to the next. As a potential member, we want to help you sniff out the best gyms from the not so great gyms. Location and pricing are usually the first thing people look at, below is a list of what’s much more important.

Coaches - A good coach knows how to motivate any personality type, spot faulty movement, provide cues to improve movement patterns, and create a fun and enjoyable atmosphere each and every class. Beware of the common "athlete coach" that only knows how to do and not how to teach.

Programming - If the workouts look like non stop beat downs day in and day out, then smart program design is missing. Smart and safe programming involves progression, variance in intensity, movement, and volume. We don't mind being nerds about this stuff because it's what makes our athletes better faster.

Community - Great gyms have a friendly and inviting community. We do stuff! Events like competitions, pub-crawls, movie nights, fundraisers, and other outside activities foster a connected and motivating community.

We encourage you to stop by and watch a class, talk to some of our coaches, and get an idea for the culture and community at our gym. We look forward to meeting you!
