Contact Us Now!

Since 2005, when we opened our doors as Washington, D.C.’s first-ever CrossFit affiliate, CrossFit DC has provided the coaching and community to meet the needs of everyone from absolute beginners to competitive athletes.

On any given day, a workout at CrossFit DC may feature Olympic weightlifting, sprinting, gymnastics, calisthenics, core conditioning — or all of the above. No workout is ever the same. What all of our classes do have in common, however, is an emphasis on functional strength, creative conditioning, and skill development for all levels.

At CrossFit DC, every challenge comes with a purpose. Our focus is technique, progression, and quality movement. We prioritize proficiency first, then consistency, and then intensity. We strive to help our members make progress not just in the short term, but throughout their long-term pursuits of fitness.

Above all, we take pride in fosteringĀ a community that is second to none: fun, encouraging, passionate, inspiring, and as diverse and dynamic as the city itself. All are welcome. All we ask is a positive attitude andĀ a desire to better yourself.

What Others are Saying

“Being part of CrossFit DC has changed my life for the better. I am not only stronger physically, but mentally as well. Sometimes I’ll be struggling with something at work, and I’ll think about that ridiculously tough workout I did last week and realize whatever I’m facing is nothing compared to that! I have surpassed what I thought my body was capable of, which is such an empowering feeling. I continue to see myself improve and become stronger and healthier.”
Katie C.,
“I started coming to Crossfit DC about a year ago now, starting back when they were at Kalorama. I kept coming–and have followed them to their new location on 14th street–because this is a fantastic group, both the coaches and the larger community.”
Kathy W.,

“Really, this gym is the best CrossFit gym in the DC area. I’ve been injured for a few months and was worried about coming back to CrossFit, but Chris has been very accommodating (and went so far as to take my jump rope away so I wouldn’t push my limits on a still-healing ankle). Tom and Chris give beginners and veterans alike the same amount of attention and care. No one is overlooked. Everyone is encouraged.

If you are thinking about CrossFit, come to CrossFit DC.”
