Making CrossFit Cheaper than a Cup of Starbucks Coffee

Our 2020 goal was to make CrossFit affordable to everyone. We are proud to offer Unlimited CrossFit classes for about $90 / month.

Making CrossFit More Accessible to Everyone in Alexandria VA

CrossFit has about 3 million people who actively train in a gym.  CrossFit has helped thousands of people lose weight, build range of motion, and improve their overall health and fitness.  If CrossFit had an Achilles heel, it would it’s cost.  Most CrossFit gym charge upwards of $250/month for an unlimited membership.  And while many would argue that a well run CrossFit Gym in Alexandria VA is worth that much, $250 or even $180 per month is simply more than many can afford.

Building an Affordable CrossFit Class For Everyone

Many CrossFit gyms go to great lengths to justify their expensive prices. We think that anytime a business needs to justify their prices, they are charging more than they should. Health & Fitness should be something everyone can afford. Under Dawn’s leadership, we are proud to offer CrossFit classes for about $90 / month.

CrossFit Classes for $90 / Month?

When Dawn said to me in April, “Paul I want to charge $90 /month for CrossFit classes” my jaw hit the floor.

“$90?  Are you crazy?  We will lose money.  Trident CrossFit, CrossFit South Arlington, CrossFit Old Town, etc. all charge at least $200.  It’s impossible.”  I told her.

Dawn’s response was, “We need to make CrossFit affordable to students and people that don’t make a lot of money.  People are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19 if they aren’t healthy.  We can’t put a price on people’s health and fitness.   This is important to me — you need to figure out the programming and logistics to make it happen.”

I was like, “Is that all?”

Dawn replied, “In fact, no.  I want to offer open gym for just $8 more.  So Open Gym + CrossFit for $98.  Also, I want don’t want any signup fees, no hidden fees, no cancellation fees.   Oh, and it needs to be Unlimited Classes.  But don’t worry, since we are closed in April, you’ll have a whole month to figure out how you can do that :-).”

That was April 2020.  Today, I am proud to announce that we can offer unlimited CrossFit Classes and Open Gym for under $100 / month — but it’s for a limited time.   Here are the details.
