    I opened Forest City CrossFit in 2015 as a way to share my knowledge, experience, and passion for living a healthy and active lifestyle with others. Being a parent to three young children, it just made sense to expand our programs to include a focus on youth. I’ve seen far too many children growing up with unhealthy habits, having too much screen time and few outlets to direct their natural energy. I wanted to provide a place where kids could have fun while being physically active, while also developing their social and emotional skills, in a safe and supportive environment. It’s been heartwarming to see our young participants’ excitement with our equipment and to watch them enjoy our activities, not knowing they’re developing the connection between mind and body. It’s been exciting to watch our teen participants take safe risks, build new skills, do things they never thought possible and have greater pride and confidence. It’s been especially motivating to have some of our teen participants move to our new Elite program where they’ve shown tremendous progress with their physical skills and mental capacity to participate in competitive athletics more effectively. I’d love to meet you and your child and show you how we can help instil healthy lifestyle habits within your family. We might even get you to workout alongside your child in our adult classes!

      We’re super proud of David (14) and Braiden (13) from our Elite Teen Athletic Training program for recently participating in the Festivus Games Competition, representing Forest City CrossFit in the Novice Male Division. While the Festivus Games is a competition geared toward novice and intermediate athletes, it’s generally intended for adults, so it was a big deal for David and Braiden to say “yes” when encouraged to participate. It was the first time for both in a functional fitness competitive environment. The event had them go through for grueling workouts over the course of the day, competing alongside 30 other teams. They took advantage of guidance and support from our Owner/Head Coach Jamie to help prepare, identifying challenges they’d face and strategizing accordingly to ensure they could maximize their performance while maintaining their safety. During the competition they stayed focused, worked hard, and realized they were capable of much more than they thought there were. They proudly stood on the first-place podium for their division. We’re very proud of David and Braiden, and they both look forward to competing again.
