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