Why are we Mercenaries?
A Mercenary is a soldier. For us, this means a fighter, a badass, someone strong who fights for the cause of their choosing. Every day that our athletes enter CrossFit Mercenary, they are fighting for whatever drives them: to be stronger, fitter, healthier. We are all Mercenaries.

Why should you join a Crossfit Gym?
CrossFit has revolutionized the way we workout, taking functional everyday movements and turning them into diversified workouts. No longer do you have to walk into a 24-hour gym look around and ask:
Where do I begin? What machines do I use? Am I using them correctly? How many reps do I complete? How much do I lift to accomplish my goals? Or What muscles do I work?
CrossFit has studied the science of working out and developed the blueprint for the most successful programming out there. We have a team of CF-L1 trainers who use this blueprint to program for total body fitness. Every day is a new workout so training never gets boring and you have CF-L1 trainers watching your form because safely lifting with intensity is one of our gym goals. From kids to seniors and everyone in between, every movement can be scaled to fit every individual.
Our location features 8,000 square feet of work out area, 2 rigs, high-quality turf and more! Your CrossFit Mercenary: F.A.C. membership includes unlimited access to our location, open gym access, and more!
