Building Capability, Durability, Longevity
Our primary goal at CFCA is to develop capability, durability and most importantly longevity in our members. We have evolved over the years into what we’d consider more of a “lifestyle” crossfit gym. We prioritize exercises & training we feel has the best carryover to our member’s outside of the gym… without exposing them to unnecessary risk. In recent years mainstream Crossfit has morphed into a competition based sport and as a result the athletes have sacrificed durability and longevity for performance goals. The reality of what we do on a daily basis at CFCA is to put more focus on quality movement and less focus on quantity for time. We are motivated to help you create a fitness practice that will persist throughout your life.
Our crossfit classes are an hour in length. Some days the workout may be more focused on strength & skill development while other days will be more cardiovascular in nature. The majority of the days will be a blend of the two. Emphasis for our new members is put on establishing safe movement patterns and building a strong fitness foundation before adding any intensity or high skill movements. Our posted workouts are more of a guideline and we modify the exercises and volume to meet specific members current abilities & goals. If you’re interested in dropping in on a class or scheduling a time to come by and check it out, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Info@crossfitcapeann.com

Coaches at CFCA are responsible for ensuring that your form and range of motion is correct and that the exercise volume and load is adjusted to your current fitness level. Our coaches run every class as a teacher, a resource for questions, a motivator, a support system, and a safety supervisor. We encourage you to utilize our knowledge and skill. Beyond that coaches make themselves available to meet with our current members to discuss realistic goals, nutrition and to help them establish positive lifestyle practices that will optimize the training they do in the gym.

Our facility includes 3600+ Sq/ft of workable floor space with every piece of equipment you would find at most crossfit gyms (barbells, bumper plates, kettlebells, dumbbells, medicine balls, rowers) and few that you wouldn’t (sandbags, ropes, sleds, ski-ergs, climbing wall) We also have showers for those that need to go straight to work after class. We take pride in making our space unique and pretty much try to make it feel like a second home to our members. Come check it out!
At CFCA, we have been blessed with an amazing diversity of members. In any given class you might find a high level collegiate athlete training right next to a grandmother of 3 who is really just here to move. All in all, you won’t find a more humble and generally well-natured community on Cape Ann. Beyond that we have a Facebook group strictly for CFCA members that we use to help with accountability, discuss training and nutrition topics and create social connections that go beyond the gym walls. We have always made a point to keep CFCA a fun, engaging and above all a supportive and inclusive environment.
Beyond Our Walls
At CFCA, we put an extra emphasis on getting our members outside and enjoying all that Cape Ann has to offer. On any given day you can go paddling, rowing, surfing, trail running, hiking, climbing, mountain biking, etc… what an incredible place we live in. We encourage and create opportunities for our members to enjoy this diverse environment. Enough can’t be said about the power of a supportive community of active folks for making lasting lifestyle changes.
