About Us

"There is nothing impossible to those who try"

about us

At CFX, we don’t do one-size-fits-all fitness. Why would we? Everyone comes to us with different needs, goals and objectives. And, we’re 100% dedicated to helping you achieve the results you want.

CFX‘s skilled coaches have developed a new approach to fitness, building an athletic program that’s comprehensive, inclusive and always challenging. Inside these walls, your safety is always our foremost priority.

At CFX, we’re about more than just fitness. We’re a family – a family supported by a team of coaches and staff, each dedicated to offering guidance and support to you, every day. Since we believe you deserve the best when you’re giving your best, all our amenities are top of the line.

Here, inside the CFX walls, things are different. Cheers are louder, smiles are bigger and expectations are higher. That’s why you’ll be able to do a little more, move a little faster and stick with it a little longer.
