Our Next Gym Wide Event!

Our next gym wide event is the Murph Hero workout planned for Memorial Day Monday May 28th at 6:30am and 8:00am. We will not have any other classes this day. 

This workout is for everybody! We will have scaling options, partner options and RX options. Most important part is that you show up, do your best and remember the heroes that have given all for each of us!

Mobility Clinic

Our last mobility clinic was a huge success. Thanks to Cat Allred and Shayne Peterson from Therazona Physical Therapy for teaching us more about Mobility!

We focused on Shoulders and Hips and have been practicing what we learned this last week in classes.

We will have our next Mobility Clinic with Therazona Physical Therapy on Saturday June 16th!

Free Workouts! Saturday’s at 9:00am and Thursday Track at 5:30am

Did you know CrossFit Preferred offers free community workouts two times per week!

We have a free Track Workout every Thursday at 5:30am at the Highland High School Track. This is for beginners and experienced runners! We have great workouts that are helping everyone improve!

We now also have a free workout on Saturdays at our 9:00am class only. These workouts are challenging and fun but are designed for beginners that do not have the technical skills of some of the lifts we do yet!

Please invite your friends and family and invite them to experience a CrossFit or Track Workout!

Gymnastics Help Saturdays at 8:00am!

Did you know we offer Gymnastics help on Saturdays at 8:00am at CrossFit Preferred?! There is not a extra charge for this class if you are a member of CrossFit Preferred! We want to help you improve!

This class is coached by Coach Andy Greenwood.

Olympic Lifting Class is Cancelled

We have cancelled our Olympic lifting class on Wednesday nights for now.

We will bring back again in the future! We re restructuring how we are going to offer this class and may do it at certain times of the year depending on interest.

Please contact Kris LeSueur at if this is a class you want at CrossFit Preferred.

Running Workouts Each Week

Did you know we now have additional running workouts each week that you can do in addition to your CrossFit workouts or you can split up your CrossFit workouts and running.

These workouts as well as all of our workouts are posted @ each week under the Blog section and Latest WOD.


Spartan SGX Training!

Spartan SGX starts Tuesday May 29th at 7:00pm! We will have Spartan SGX Training on Tuesday/Thursday at 7:00pm and Saturdays at 7:00am.

Spartan SGX training works best supplementing it with aerobic conditioning on the off days. We will have class workouts 3 days per week and homework of running on the off days each week. This will work great with the running workouts we already have available each week.

We will start with training for the Spartan Stadium Sprint that will be in Glendale, Arizona in July.

This training is for beginners and experienced Spartan Racers!


There will be training homework for you to do on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays. Andrew will go over in class Tuesday.
