ABOUT NORTH DURHAM CROSSFIT

Our strength and conditioning program gets you ready for whatever life demands, both physically and mentally. We pursue fitness that is equal parts strength, endurance, stamina, agility, accuracy, speed, coordination, power, balance, and flexibility. As we train and broadly expand our capacities, we achieve the kind of fitness that refuses to quit, that pushes through adversity. The kind of fitness that survives and thrives. Our coaches’ priorities are making the workouts and our program work for you. We can adjust our well-rounded strength and conditioning program to meet your needs. All workouts are scalable for all fitness levels, age groups, and physical limitations.

We have been getting people fitter, stronger, and healthier since 2008. All of our instructors are experienced CrossFit athletes themselves and CrossFit Level 1 coaches at a minimum. Many hold specialty certifications. Our facility is over 18,000 square feet with over 4,000 square feet of workout space. Showers are available in both the men’s and women’s restrooms.

Meet The Team

We have a great team of trainers. 

I have always had a passion for fitness. It wasn’t until I turned 37 years old that I truly began to understand what being fit entailed.  After having two children, it was hard for me to reach the weight loss goals I was looking for.  I decided to give CrossFit a try.   After joining in 2010, I have been hooked ever since.  I met those weight loss goals within six months of joining but most importantly, I have become stronger and healthier each and every day.   My goal as a trainer is to continuously expand my knowledge in fitness and nutrition and inspire others to do the same. title=Amy H

I have always been a large individual.  When others wanted to run, I wanted to carry.  I found that life was more fun when I could safely and efficiently lift and carry large objects, but I knew that being able to move at a high intensity for a longer time was also important.  CrossFit has given me the best of both worlds.  I now reward myself with stones and yokes after trudging through a long and intense workout. title=Trent S

My first CrossFit workout was in December 2006.  Up to that point I was a chest on monday, back on tuesday, arms on wednesday, skip doing legs because I run in the Army type.  That workout was an athletic turning point.  I was intrigued (and humbled because I couldn’t believe how hard it was to do an overhead squat).  CrossFit was providing the fitness prescription I had been looking for for years.  I began doing the CrossFit workouts at the gyms on post whenever I could.  Over the course of the next year I was deployed to Iraq as part of “the surge” and continued to CrossFit.  By the time I re-deployed home, I was buying equipment to outfit my garage.

I want to be as fit as possible in every area of fitness.  Not just strength, not just endurance, not just bodyweight, not just weights.  I want to be fit, be strong, not just look like it.  CrossFit fits the prescription like no other program.

I love exercise and want to help people achieve their peak level of fitness.  An engineer by schooling, and an athlete at heart, I started my gym out of my garage in 2008 as a part time gig while working as a builder.  2010 saw us go full time and then in 2011 we moved again to our current 3,000 square foot facility.  From October 2002 to 2008, I served on active duty in the U.S. Army. title=Matt C

I decided to try to CrossFit in November of 2012 with the intention of mixing it up for a month and then going back to solo training. But soon I was hooked-my lifts were 20, 30, 100 lbs more than they had been and I could move faster for longer. It was extremely empowering-quality instruction and a great community pushed me to achieve more than I had ever envisioned. title=Kate M

I began CrossFit in January 2011 and have been hooked ever since. As an Army Officer, I used the Army physical training standards to gauge my fitness. I was rudely awakened during the first 20 minute AMRAP learning the Army PT standards are not a fitness measure. My athletic background is football, wrestling and track in high school and recreational sports such as paintball and golf since.  My CrossFit goals are to push myself and those around me to get better every day, integrate myself into the North Durham CrossFit  training staff and to improve my teaching/coaching techniques. title=Todd M

I first got interested in fitness as a rower in college.  After graduating, I found myself in downtown Chicago with a membership to a large brand-name gym.  It turns out that wasn’t for me. I wasn’t enjoying it, and as a result, I was getting pretty out of shape.  I had done some CrossFit workouts as cross training while rowing, and I decided to check out a few of the boxes in the area.  I found a lot of the things there that I really missed about college athletics.  The feeling of being part of a team, someone else telling me what workout to do everyday, and the actual difficulty of the workouts were lacking from my earlier experience.  I joined pretty much immediately. title=Matt J
