Why CrossFit Empirical?
Choosing the right CrossFit Box can be very stressful. Many thoughts and concerns may run through your mind while doing so.
- Do I go with the cheapest price?
- Do I go to the BIGGEST facility?
- Should I stay within a 5 mile radius of my home?
- What if the people are not friendly?
- What if they do not have the program I want to follow?
- What if no one likes me???
Well…..we are here to put all your fears and questions to rest. Our team at CFE has spent countless hours and many years building the perfect community, programming, and facility for ALL to call home. From the moment you step foot into CrossFit Empirical, we want you to feel at ease and comfortable. CFE is a family and ultimately the Box will become your home away from home!
CFE is a 10,000 sq. ft. facility located right in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. It is the only CrossFit box around with 2 SEPARATE free standing facilities designed side by side to cater to all of your CF needs. We are a one stop shop!
The CFE “Main” side is 5000 sq. feet that is fully stocked and loaded with all the equipment you will need to successfully take part in our CrossFit strength & conditioning program. Our fitness program is broad, general and all inclusive. We do not specialize in 1 specific thing. We train to be good at EVERYTHING. The beauty of this program is its universal scalability which makes it perfect for anyone and everyone. It doesn’t matter if you are a grandma, a navy seal, a heart disease patient, or an MMA fighter. We scale load and intensity based on your unique individual needs; we do not change the program.
Located right next to CFE Main side you will find “The Lab”. This is another 5000 sq. foot facility with all the bells and whistles a crossfitter loves to play with. This facility is strictly for Open Gym, specialty classes and our very own Competitors Program. The specialty programs include Striking, EMOM, Bootcamp, Yoga and Olympic weightlifting. As if that wasn’t enough, IF you are the athlete that wants to compete, make it to the CF Games, or simply take it to the next level… then Open Gym or the competitors program in The Lab could be for you. Open Gym is available anytime our main side is open. You are free to take advantage of the extra work that is programmed for you daily or you may choose to follow Outlaw, Misfit, or any other program of your choice. If you are beyond that level and you are amongst the elite athletes that have mastered most skills, the Competitors Program could be for you. You must be ready to make a serious commitment to your training, a big investment of your time and a lot of personal sacrifices. This competitors program is run daily in The Lab from 6-8pm. Please see link for a more detailed description of what this program entails. http://crossfitempirical.com/category/blog/
We would like to welcome everyone thinking of giving CrossFit a try to stop into CFE and try a FREE class. We pride ourselves in having the most hands on, educated, informed coaches. We have surrounded ourselves with the best TEAM possible. Our #1 goal is to keep you safe while helping each of you achieve your individual goals and dreams. We are very blessed to have the most amazing, giving, kind members that ultimately make CFE the desired community it is. You will never feel like a “stranger” here. Our members create a friendly, welcoming atmosphere making everyone, no matter how new you are, feel like family from day one. We are proud to say CFE has been the product of many friendships, relationships, marriages and even babies!!! Oh, and did we mention the best part? There are no hidden fees. Your membership is ALL INCLUSIVE. There are no silly contracts, no pressure and no hidden agenda. What you see is what you get at CFE.
So, now that you know all about us the choice is yours…Regardless if you choose CFE or another CF facility we are simply happy that you choose CrossFit! Always be smart when making your decisions, do your homework. There are many “IMPOSTERS” out there that will tell you they are a CrossFit gym; they may even have the fancy equipment and use CF methodology. Remember, this is a big commitment and investment you are about to make so protect yourself. Log onto http://map.crossfit.com/ Headquarters page and always be sure they are an actual affiliate. Just like any major service you purchase, you want to be sure people are licensed and insured. Don’t be fooled! Be sure the coaches are knowledgeable, SAFETY always 1st. If on your first day the 1st thing a coach says to you is “let’s see how heavy you can lift”….RUN, fast! Don’t worry, we will lift very heavy stuff…. eventually. Always remember good form comes before all else. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither were Jason Khalipa & Annie Thorsidottir!
Now it’s time to ask yourself….Do you choose CFE???
