Welcome to CrossFit Central

We remain a locally owned and operated family business. We love this city and we would love the opportunity to help you reach your goals. CrossFit Central co-founders, Jeremy Thiel & Carey Kepler, along with their 3 brothers and sisters grew up on a squash farm in Lubbock, Texas. From a young age they learned the value of working hard, providing a quality product and impacting people’s lives through service. Both Jeremy and Carey were athletic from a young age and played high school and collegiate level sports. They chose to combine their love of fitness with their desire to change people’s lives – they set out to build a fit community in Austin, Texas.

In the Spring of 2006 we opened our first gym, becoming one of the first 50 CrossFit Affiliates in the world. We are dedicated to building a fit community

Our Programs


CrossFit is constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement, the goal is to improve fitness and therefore general physical preparedness.

You will see a combination of: sprinting, rowing, jumping rope, climbing rope, flipping tires, weightlifting, carrying odd objects, box jumps, barbells, dumbbells, gymnastics ring work, pull-ups, kettlebells, medicine balls, and many bodyweight exercises. CrossFit is for everyone, regardless of your experience or fitness level. Each workout is scalable.
