Mission CrossFit SA opened its doors in April, 2010, with just over 1,000 square feet of space and 1 member. By the end of the first month, we grew to 15 members and we were on our way! As we approached our 1 year mark, our classes would overflow into the nearby courtyard of the complex and even the parking lot. (Remember the smell of baking pizza dough from Florio’s during the afternoon WODs??)
On our second anniversary, we decided to make the transition from our original gym to a 6,500 square foot building with an assortment of amenities. We couldn’t have been happier! The larger space allowed us to offer a wide variety of athletic programming, ranging from regular CrossFit classes to personal training, CrossFit Kids, Mission Barbell Club, Strength Crew and even Corporate Wellness. Our current space has showers, Air Conditioning, tons of natural light, high ceilings, multiple bathrooms, lounge/stretching area and a kids play pen.
As of June 30th, 2014 we have expanded again! 3 gyms in 4 years! We have been so blessed throughout the past four years, and our new facility will help us to further develop specific programs and provide an incredible atmosphere for our members. We will have new locker rooms, massage therapy rooms, and a large lounge and warm-up area. There are also specially-designated areas for everything from mobilizing and warming-up, to CrossFit classes, Olympic lifting, power-lifting and even an advanced athlete area. Our new and improved lifting area has full-Olympic lifting gear and platforms, GHD’s, Ropes, Sleds, Atlas Stones and anything else you can think of to use in a WOD. We have designed this location to encompass everything that a CrossFit box should have with the amenities that are desired at a high-end fitness facility.
As we continue to grow, our Specialized Programs are too! Take a few minutes to browse our website and check it out. Have questions? Let us know! We are here to help YOU reach your full potential!
