Hope everybody is having a great weekend! It is fun to see a lot of new faces at the gym! Welcome to our CrossFit Preferred Family!

We are excited to announce that we now offer CrossFit Endurance training on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday! 


Starting Monday we will be starting CrossFit Endurance training. We will focus on running, rowing, CrossFit Wods and bodyweight movements. This will not replace regularly scheduled CrossFit classes. See the programming below.


The plan is to always have an event we are training for as a group and to encourage others to train for other events. The first event is The Crucible 2, after we complete that we will focus on the Gilbert Half Marathon.


We will meet Monday and Wednesday at 5:30am and Saturdays we will meet at a designated time and place.


This next Saturday the CrossFit Endurance group will be doing a trail run at South Mountain. (Please contact Kris ( for the details) Join us!


We are now signing people up for The Crucible 2! This event is for everybody! It is a very positive, team building event. PLEASE SEE THE CRUCIBLE VIDEOS AND INFORMATION BY CLICKING HERE
