What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is an extremely efficient and effective way to get into world-class shape. Our workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements (like pushups and pullups, deadlifts and squats, gymnastics, kettlebells, running, rowing, and olympic lifting), executed at high intensity in a group setting. Essentially, a fun, friendly, yet high-intensity boot camp, with weights.
Where is CrossFit Ennis?
We’re in Riverside in the Quin Road Business Park , just outside town close to the bus and train station.

Do I need experience or some minimum level of fitness?
CrossFit is for anyone, regardless of their age or fitness level. In short, if you care about health, real-world performance, or just want to look better naked, CrossFit is for you.
What if I’m REALLY out of shape and I’m kind of terrified?
We promise you’ll be totally fine. Trust us. Our trainers have had experience with tons of people who were fatter, weaker, older, and less coordinated than you are, and they were totally fine. What is more important is that most of them are now in great shape.
I have/had an injury. Can I still do CrossFit?
While we are not physicians (and we highly recommend you discuss any workout program with yours), we do find that many of our members have successfully used CrossFit to rehabilitate from injuries. Because people continue to move, work, and play in the real world regardless of injury history, we believe the best route to long-term health is to learn perfect form on functional movements, and to slowly build strength in those movements, rather than to avoid them altogether. Our instructors are always happy to work with you to scale and substitute exercises and tailor workouts to your abilities.
That said, we cannot offer you specific medical advice, and advise that you consult your physician before starting this (or any other) exercise program.
I have not done CrossFit, but I’m really fit and would like to skip the Foundations Course and just sign up for classes. Can I do that?
No. We require everyone to take the Foundation Course, so that we can make sure all of our members have a basis of safe and effective movement. That also makes classes better for everyone, since we don’t have to start from scratch each time a movement is used just so the new guy can keep up.
What if I can’t fit one of the Foundations Courses into my schedule? Do you do Private Foundations?
Yes. Get in touch and we will get you started.
I just moved to Ennis, but I’ve been CrossFitting for a while elsewhere. Can I please come to a WOD class?
If you’ve done a foundations or on-ramp program at another CrossFit box, or have at least six months experience training at an affiliate, you’d likely be fine hopping in to the WOD.
I’m just visiting Ennis, but I belong to a CrossFit gym back at home. Can I drop in for a WOD class?
Absolutely! We love visitors
Can I just come to Box and work out on my own?
No. We think you’ll get better, safer, faster results by working with a qualified coach – either in classes or one-on-one sessions – than working out alone. As a result, we’re not set up to allow people to work out unsupervised.
What do I need to bring?
Just yourself. And basic ‘workout clothes’: shorts or sweats, a t-shirt, appropriate footwear. We provide everything else.
Do you offer personal training?
Yes. Contact us for details.
Do I have to become a member to do personal training?
No. Personal training is available to both members and non-members, at the same price.
Do you sell t-shirts?
Of course. Come on down and buy something awesome.
