WHAT IS CROSSFIT?

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability—making it perfect for any committed individual, regardless of experience. CrossFit is a fast, total body workout. We do different things every day that will challenge you and push you a little outside of your comfort zone. The needs of our clients differ by degree not by kind, so our expert coaches scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

There's a difference between looking fit and being fit. Our program delivers fitness that is—by design—broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing—and life rewards this kind of fitness. If you're tired of pounding out reps on machines, CrossFit offers a richer, deeper understanding of fitness than your typical gym does. Whether you are trying to get into shape, or are in the best shape of your life, CrossFit Conway is right for you!

 
 

Who is CrossFit for?

Anyone! We have a diverse group of athletes from all walks of life. Check out some of their stories below.

Kelly Trimble

Manager/Coach

Kelly grew up playing sports and played high school basketball. She started doing CrossFit in 2012 and later convinced her husband to join her as well. It has become something the whole family can do. She loves that CrossFit is for any age and athletic background. Her favorite thing is hearing someone say “I can’t do that” and then they try and can actually do it! The confidence that gives people is so rewarding.  Kelly and her husband Jeff have three boys and can usually be found on a soccer field when not at CrossFit.
