At Cróga CrossFit we are more than just an awesome training facility that gets you in the best shape of your life. The strength in our CrossFit gym lies in our community! We like to workout together, but we enjoy socializing with cool people even more.

We love watching friendships blossom between people that would have never met unless it wasn’t for Cróga and this is why we host so many community events. They usually involve a touch of fitness, a good cause, and some great social interaction. Family and friends are often welcome and encouraged to attend as well.

Check out the list of events we’ve got planned for 2017, mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details as each event gets closer.
