Where is CFSA? And Where the heck am I supposed to park?
We are also a 10 minute walk away from 3 Metro Stations: Pentagon, Pentagon City and Crystal City.
Tell me about CFSA? What is the box like?
We believe that we are a living example of our motto, Fueled by Community, and are fortunate to house a variety of individuals who work together to achieve personal goals – both in and out of the gym. It is these members who make our ‘box’ such a lively, rambunctious community.
To hear more about our story, check out our schedule or set up a one-on-one to come visit.
How do you communicate with the gym community?
Does CrossFit really work?
Yes, it absolutely works! CrossFit is the best fitness program in the world.
An even better solution to understanding why it is effective is to come in and try it for yourself! When you are here, talk to some of our members. Ask them if CrossFit works and if it has changed their lives.
If I am a woman, will CrossFit make me bulky?
What is Foundations/On-Ramp? How do I transition in?
Here, at CFSA, we do things a little differently. We offer Level 100 classes for new and beginner level CrossFitters. Through these classes new members learn the fundamental movements of CrossFit at their own pace. The classes are geared towards teaching the basics of movement and skills and members are able to attend these classes for as long as is needed to transition into CrossFit. Once new members are proficient in all the basic movements, they can join the Level 200 classes.
This model is beneficial to individual and community growth because it helps us to teach each member at the appropriate and necessary level for individual advancement.
Do I need experience or some minimum level of fitness?
No, our workouts and exercises scale to any level! We have trained everyone from eighty-five-year-old grandmothers to obese individuals in need of a healthy shift, and they’ve all been fine. You will be too. Click here to learn more about getting started.
What if I’m REALLY out of shape and I’m kind of terrified?
We have trained people who were bigger, weaker, older, and less coordinated than you are, and they not only survived, but also thrived in the environment. In fact, if you asked around our gym, you’d likely hear everyone say that they were terrified at their first class – they’d also likely tell you that since starting, they have greatly enhanced their fitness level through our CrossFit programming!
It might be scary at first, but walking through the door is the hardest part. Once you join, you’ll find a sea of friendly faces (better known as our CFSA Community), welcoming you into each class.

I have/had an injury, can I still do CrossFit?
We have also had members successfully use CrossFit to rehabilitate from minor injuries. Because people continue to move, work, and play in the real world regardless of injury history, we believe the best route to long-term health is to learn perfect form of functional movements, and to slowly build strength in those movements, rather than to avoid them altogether.
Our coaches are always happy to work with you to scale and substitute movements in order to tailor workouts to your abilities. We also offer yoga, mobility, and nutrition as part of our class offerings – each is guaranteed to help your body get stronger, more mobile and aid in health and recovery.
