CrossFit Vultus

CrossFit is "Constantly varied, functional movement, performed at high intensity."

Okay, but what exactly does that mean? It means we vary our workouts so that we can prepare for many different physical challenges, focusing on highly functional movements (movements you do in your daily life) like squatting, lifting, pushing, and pulling. All CrossFit workouts are based on those functional movements, and those movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing, and more. Our goal is for every Vultus athlete (when you come in our box, you’re an athlete) to work at an intensity that is challenging for them, but also to able to perform the workouts SAFELY. We aim for every movement to be as skilled and safe as possible.

Why Our Athletes (& Drop-Ins) Love CrossFit Vultus

  • "We were visiting from out of town and tried a class. It was great. Everybody was really nice. The trainer was very interactive and very organized. The equipment was in great shape and the facilities were very clean. We will definitely be back for another class next time we are here."
    Teesa V.
  • "Had the pleasure of training with these guys on my recent trip to the Crossfit Games. What a warm and welcoming reception we got. If you're in the area, get down to a session, you might be in pain by the end of it but you won't regret it!! Many thanks to everyone at CrossFit Vultus, hopefully see you next year."

Drop-in Policy

Let CrossFit Vultus be your home away from home

Our drop-in fee for non-members is $20, and when you buy a t-shirt or tank, the first drop-in is on us. You must have Crossfit experience to attend a regular class. Please email Josh Deppe at to let us know you’re coming. See you soon!


Nope! One of the common misconceptions of CrossFit is that it's only for elite level athletes. In reality, the CrossFit community is made up of competitive athletes, former athletes, working professionals, and people who prior to CrossFit, had never even set foot in a gym before!

No problem! Our workouts and exercises scale to any level- from PVC pipes to heavy barbells, at CrossFit Vultus, we tailor the workout to your individual ability.

The idea of CrossFit is that it's constantly varied exercise, so don't worry about ever getting bored! You will learn nine foundational functional movements of CrossFit, such as squats, pushing, and pulling. In classes we use kettlebells, barbells, ropes, gymnastic movements, Olympic lifts, bands, rings, rowers, medicine balls, dumbbells, and more.

We aren't stopping you, and neither should an injury! The beauty about CrossFit is that the exercises and movements can be easily scaled and adjusted to individual needs. We have had many members come through the doors with previous injuries that have found relief from pain by strengthening the muscles around the problem area. Often times people stop exercising a previously injured area due to fear of re-injury or pain, and because of this, they end up deconditioned, weak, and even MORE susceptible to injury in the future! Let our coaches help you gain back your pre-injury strength and confidence!

WOD stands for Workout of the Day.

Unless you are increasing your daily caloric intake to astronomical amounts, lifting extremely heavy weights multiple times a day, and putting extra substances into your body that aren't already there, no you will not look like the Incredible Hulk from doing CrossFit. Now will you end up looking more toned? Yeah, we'd bet on it!

Absolutely! We'd love to have you! Swing by on Saturday mornings at 10:30am for our FREE Introductory class!
