Who We Are
CrossFit Stratford is not your typical gym. We are a community of like-minded people who work and play hard. Our training philosophy is simple: lift heavy things, move fast, don’t quit. We use elements of weightlifting, gymnastics and monostructural movements (cardio) to prepare for life outside the gym.
We have members from all walks of life – students, moms, doctors, engineers, military, police, firemen, teachers, expecting mothers, bankers and pretty much everything in between. We have members of all fitness levels – former pro and collegiate athletes, weekend warriors to beginners who have never lifted a weight or run more than a mile. But all of our members have a few things in common. They all care about their health, they all want to get better every day and they don’t make excuses.
At CrossFit Stratford, we are all athletes. We work really hard. We sweat. We run. We lift heavy things. We jump. We push. We pull. We throw. We fail sometimes. We always get back up and try again. We support our fellow athletes. We compete with our fellow athletes. We learn new things. We get frustrated. We stretch. Sometimes we bleed. Sometimes we hurt. We don’t watch TV while we work. We don’t keep our heart-rate in target zones. We don’t eat food that makes us less healthy. We get results.
This is who we are & this is what we do. If that sounds cool to you – then welcome. You are about to do things that you once thought were impossible.
