Welcome to Our Community
Welcome to CrossFit City Limits! If you’re visiting our site for the first time, chances are you’re ready to really, seriously, finally get in shape. Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve designed our training program and gym to teach you how to make fitness a regular, enjoyable part of your life. You’ll get results as you expand your social network working out with and getting to know some of the most amazing people in Austin!
We understand that high-intensity, functional fitness may seem intimidating if you’ve never done it before, which is why we offer a free intro session to chat with you, introduce you to our gym and how we work out, and get a better sense of your goals and what you’re looking for. We then build your technique and confidence by providing optional foundation sessions or optional personal training sessions to be sure you are off to a solid start. Through the years, we have found this method to be an incredibly effective way to get new members off to the best start possible.
Just walking through the doors for the first time is typically the hardest part of getting started. Our community of members and coaches is extremely welcoming. Everyone in our community had to take that first step and knows what it feels like to be the new person. We completely understand what it takes to put yourself out there, know it is worth the effort, and we want to help you succeed in every way possible.
What is CrossFit?
Constantly varied, functional movements, at high-intensity.
We mix cardio, strength training, and flexibility. In our classes we lift weights, we run, we bike, we row, we do body-weight exercises, we do long slow work-outs, we do short intense work-outs, we utilize intervals, we work mobility, stability, and flexibility, and we mix and match these in as many different ways and variations imagination allows. Routine is the enemy. We work-out in ways that encourage adaptations, but not plateaus. Our workouts are not random. The CrossFit City Limits workout program plans in cycles months ahead of time to ensure the program as a whole works towards improving our all-around fitness.
CrossFit City Limits is a movement practice that has tremendous carry-over into how you use your body in everyday life. We learn how to use your core and position your body to gain optimal leverages for the most efficient and safest movements the human body can perform. Moving with proper technique not only allows us to move the most weight the fastest and provide a foundation for sport, but it also protects our spine, muscles, and joints. At CrossFit City Limits, we gain consistency with good technique and then we push the intensity. We’ll help you create a body you will be proud of!
We work hard. Everyone is looking for the fast track to results. The secret sauce is simple, effort. We need to convince your body to change. Results come from putting in the right kind and amount of work. It’s easy to hold poses, do a bunch of different reps of a bunch of different things and get out of breath, but it is a whole different thing to maintain good body positions as we challenge your central nervous system, metabolic pathways, and muscles with different stresses in a work-out. We work hard, we do it in good positions, and because of that, we earn the amazing results we get.
Scales to Any Level
While our workouts at CrossFit City Limits are designed to challenges the world's fittest, our program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual. Our goal is for everyone in the gym, regardless of restrictions, experience, or fitness level, to receive the same stimulus from each workout. We scale down weights and intensity and modify exercises as needed. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind. Our coaches deliver advise to you based on your individual goals and fitness level, customizing every workout to you.
Coaches Who Understand You
At CrossFit City Limits, we are not like other gyms you have been to or classes you have tried. With a small staff of career coaches who were hand selected for their personal training talents, we will get to know your goals, why you are in the gym, and understand any factors in your real life that may impact your schedule or motivation. This individualized approach is what provides us the context we need to provide you the best individualized coaching possible.
While others simply act as cheerleaders as they motivate you, tell you what exercises to do, and make minor critiques on form, our coaches are amazing personal trainers who, in a group setting, will motivate, but also have the one-on-one expertise and experience to help you at an extremely detailed, individual level to provide you exactly what you need.
At CrossFit City Limits, we are more than just a place to workout. Our community supports everyone. We host community service events, happy hours, friendly gym competitions, play recreational sports, and other social, active outings to strengthen our relationship with the city and one another. Over time, you’ll get to know the people you are sharing classes with making your fitness journey much more enjoyable. There is a wide range of amazing people from a variety of backgrounds at CrossFit City Limits and we’d love to welcome you in!
