CrossFit Lake Charles is the oldest and most training-diverse CrossFit gym in the area, located at 426 Broad Street in Lake Charles, Louisiana. We teach basic to advanced level classes in functional exercise, athletic conditioning, plyometrics, kettlebell training, Olympic weightlifting, medicine ball and dumbbell training, powerlifting, gymnastics, rowing, running and jumping rope. Our students are extremely diverse in their experience, conditioning, and lives; and include students, business executives, refinery workers, stay-at-home moms, athletes, and martial artists from a number of disciplines.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing.
CrossFit makes use of three different standards or models for evaluating and guiding fitness. Collectively, these three standards define the CrossFit view of fitness. The first is based on the ten general physical skills widely recognized by exercise physiologists. The second standard, or model, is based on the performance of athletic tasks, while the third is based on the energy systems that drive all human action.
Each model is critical to the CrossFit concept and each has distinct utility in evaluating an athlete’s overall fitness or a strength and conditioning regimen’s efficacy.
Once you come in and complete your Introduction, the next step is attending the Fundamentals Course. This course consists of 3 one-hour classes in which members learn the foundational movements of CrossFit. This enables us to have the opportunity to work one-on-one with each of our members before you join a regularly scheduled class, so you feel better prepared, know what to expect, and have a better understanding of the movements and how to scale them according to your fitness level. CrossFit is intense, so before we need to spend some time with you on mechanics of movement so you can perform them safely and efficiently. There is a one-time fee for this Course, and it is mandatory before attending regular classes. Each of our classes consists of a warm-up, stretching routine, and a Workout of the Day (WOD); the WOD generally consists of two parts: part A is usually skill work, untimed, while part B is usually conditioning for either reps or time.

“You have to experience our box to fully understand how and why we are so different than any other gym. We are not like P90-X or Insanity or any other program. What we do may resemble some aspect of what they do, but only a small percentage of it is even relevant once you get the broad scope of what CrossFit is and how it affects your life. We utilize CrossFit as our primary training method, and focus our members on optimizing physical competence in each of 10 recognized fitness domains (Cardio-respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.) The stimulus provided is always varied and the results are dramatic. The atmosphere is one of support and camaraderie to anyone willing to put in the work.”
