CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program based on constantly varied, functional movements performed at a high level of intensity. It is a broad and inclusive system that promotes the fitness required for life. Our program is designed for universal scalability, meaning every workout can be modified to fit your current abilities. We utilize components from many athletic domains for our workouts, including calisthenics, gymnastics, Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, rowing, sprinting, and others. The workouts are different each day, but are always exciting and challenging. A certified CrossFit trainer is present at every class to guide you through the workout, and we strive for quality of movement because safety is always paramount. You do not have to be in shape or have prior training experience to do CrossFit, because every workout can be, and will be, tailored to your current fitness level.

Our boxing and Muay Thai classes are designed for anyone(ages 12 and up) and all skill levels. You will go through a warm-up, spend some time working on technique and skills, then do a circuit workout to finish off the class. Each day will be varied, but movements will include bag and pad work, footwork drills, push-ups, squats, planking, and much more. You will work on the Thai pads, boxing mitts, and punching bags as well. This class is designed to help improve balance, coordination, strength, and most importantly self-confidence. The class is taught by Chris Drumming, a veteran Muay Thai and boxing practitioner who has trained in Japan and is extremely knowledgable when it comes to martial arts. We offer these classes a la carte, or you can purchase a monthly membership(no contract) for just these classes. Unlimited CrossFit members can attend for 5$.
CrossFit Kids is a strength and conditioning program that is specifically designed for kids and teenagers that helps develop a lifelong love of fitness. In a group setting, children and teens participate in fun and engaging workouts that deliver measurable results and prepare them to be well-rounded athletes. We have fun, but we strive to teach discipline, responsibility, and a good work ethic as well. Kids ages 8-14 are welcome to attend this class. Click the link below to register your child today. You can pay per class or sign up for a monthly membership as well(non-contractual).

This class focuses on improving cardiovascular capacity, weight loss, and improving the overall tone of your body. We use rowers, bikes, ski ergs, jump ropes, running, calisthenics, and light weights to help you achieve a great, low-impact workout. This class is open to anyone(ages 14 and up), and is a great alternative to CrossFit for those that have no desire to lift heavier weights. We focus more on body control, proper form, and better overall movement patterns to keep you safe, but get you a fantastic workout at the same time. This class will be taught by Dana Baker, a CrossFit level 1 trainer who has been involved with CrossFit Aiken since it first opened in 2011. It is open to both CrossFit members(for 5$) and non-members.

Technique is paramount when it comes to dynamic lifts like the snatch and clean & jerk. This class will primarily focus on perfecting those two movements, but you will also learn other important information. We will show you how to properly warm-up, demonstrate and perform accessory lifts that will help improve your classical lifts, and watch videos of lifters of all levels to see and understand different nuances and technique styles. This class is open to all skill levels and anyone 12 and older, and requires registration before attending. You can purchase a single class or class packages to attend. This class is free for Unlimited CrossFit memberships.
Being able to control your own body is crucial for everyone. This class will focus on improving your overall coordination, balance, and agility. It may seem daunting, but the beauty of gymnastics is that every movement has a progression. Difficult movements, like the freestanding handstand and the L-Sit, are the end products of the mastery of a series of progressively easier movements. We focus on finding a point that you are comfortable starting at, and slowly building strength and body control through proper form and use of the progressions. This class is open to anyone ages 10 and up. Please make sure to register if you plan to attend. Classes can be purchased in single or multiple packages, and this class is free for all Unlimited CrossFit members.
