About Us

CrossFit Oakland Park

At CrossFit Oakland Park, our primary goal is to provide a unique training experience designed to make our clients better. A typical class will include a group warmup, some strength training / skill development, followed by the workout of day (WOD).  Each class will be led by a one or more of CrossFit Oakland Park’s Certified Trainers who will ensure that athletes are working within their capabilities and movement standards are being maintained throughout the workouts.  We specialize in CrossFit, Mobility, Yoga, Olympic Lifting, and Strongman Training.  

CrossFit Oakland Park is proud to be one of the few CrossFit facilities that emphasizes safety and mobility.  Our head coach, Eduardo Colón, who is a former Army Combat Medical Specialist, understands the concept of leading people through physical activities without injury. Furthermore, we are affiliated with the organization STOP Sport Injuries, which is a comprehensive public outreach program that focuses on the importance of sports safety-specifically relating to overuse and trauma injuries.

What is CrossFit?

Simply put…CrossFit is fun, challenging, discouraging, empowering, and humbling all at the same time.  The best way to find out what CrossFit is all about is to visit our facility and try a out a class firsthand.

The long answer is that CrossFit is a universally scalable strength and conditioning program designed to increase work capacity across the 10 domains of fitness (cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy).  By definition, CrossFit is “constantly varied, functional movements, executed at a high intensity.” CrossFit specializes in not having a specialty in order to prepare athletes for the unknown and unknowable. It combines aspects & movements from the weightlifting, gymnastic, and endurance sport world in order to create a variety of workouts that are both physically and mentally challenging. CrossFit promotes a healthy lifestyle in the pursuit of fitness.

Can anyone really do CrossFit?

Of course, the scalability of CrossFit workouts allow for a Navy SEAL to workout along side a pregnant woman of 7 months, a 72 year old grandmother, a marathon runner, and prospective college athlete. Granted that they may use different weights and rep-schemes depending on their individual abilities and goals, but they would all be doing the same basic movements. Their needs differ only by degree, not by kind, and the intensity is relative to each individual.

Our CrossFit Fundamentals program is designed to introduce the CrossFit principals and basic movements with a certified trainer. This is done so that our coaches / trainers can gain a better understanding of our clients goals and current fitness level and be able take the time necessary to properly review and critique each athlete.
