You will NOT find a retail/pro shop, smoothie bar, tanning bed, neon lights, 72 degree AC or any other BS here! You will find training and results, that is all we care about. If Rocky Balboa was a CrossFitter, this is where he would train. CrossFit is RAW, grunge, and a “garage gym”. Our website is not covered with ADs. We don’t push products or a clothing line. Eat right, TRAIN HARD!
While CrossFit 480 is not about reinventing the wheel, we do hope to breakdown and leap over the traditional model of fitness built on body-building mentalities, isolation movements, and extended aerobic sessions. CrossFit is about shedding the “big box” stigma of the traditional gym settings and turning back to the rugged and raw foundations of exercise. Most importantly, this means removing the machines from the gym floors and opening up space for movement and true fitness.
The philosophy of CrossFit 480 is that fitness is a life-long commitment that requires continuous education and consistent devotion to improvement. It is easy to become bored and lazy however individuals must fight through complacence and find ways to constantly rejuvenate their pursuits in health and fitness. CrossFit 480 wants to spark this rediscovery for individuals by offering the ability to join not only a gym, but a community. CrossFit 480 believes that one of the greatest benefits of fitness is the opportunity to build relationships and network. As a result, we look to embrace a communal approach to fitness characterized by reciprocal relationships amongst members, staff, health professionals, and the greater fitness community.
CrossFit 480 will encourage the competitive nature of the greater CrossFit company by recognizing that “CrossFitting” is, quite simply, a sport—the “sport of fitness.” The harnessing of the natural camaraderie, competition, and fun of sport or game yields an intensity that cannot be matched by other means. At CrossFit 480, we not only target the inactive and sedentary, but also the very active who have reached a plateau and are in need of drastic change. We hope to build strong, confident, and courageous CrossFitters by sparking a rebirth and redevelopment of their understanding of fitness.
