CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness. It is the sport of doing everyday movements (squatting, walking, lifting, running, jumping, pulling, swinging, sitting up) uncommonly well. Through constant variation and high intensity, CrossFit athletes achieve noticeable gains and positive results.
To make a long story short, the CrossFit specialty is not specializing. Any type of athlete can benefit from consistently showing up and putting in the work that will train the body to be ready for the demands of any sport or activity.
CrossFit is also the community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together. In fact, the communal aspect of CrossFit is a key component of why it’s so effective, as well as the beauty that every movement and workout can be scaled and modified to address individual needs. We all started at a square one. Today is your day!
The mission of CrossFit Iron Refined is to provide a broad and inclusive fitness environment to athletes of all levels.

Erika and John Whittington opened CrossFit Iron Refined in January 2015 in the gymnasium of Community Covenant Church. After gaining a solid following and outgrowing the original site, the two moved the box in July 2016 in order to enjoy the growth potential that their clients have demanded. Their philosophy about fitness is rooted in community, first and foremost, and believe wholeheartedly in clients pushing each other to be their best. Meet them and their coaches here.
