OUR Facility

Mad River CrossFit’s 3,300-square-foot facility is the coolest gym in the region! We’re housed in an old service station that was built in the early 1900's, with huge glass windows and beautiful red steel I-beams. Work out here, and you get to take charge of your fitness future in a piece of the city’s past.

Inside, you’ll find a plethora of all the essential CrossFit tools that you'll learn to love (and sometimes love to hate), so you never waste your workout time waiting for a machine or bar. We’ve got awesome "graffiti", a member's lounge, a retail and lounge area, AND tons of member recognition on our walls and ceilings. We’d love it if you were the next to leave your mark with us!

  • From my first class, I felt welcome. MRCF is a true community, and with boxes popping up everywhere with people trying to capitalize on the CrossFit popularity, there is something special about Mad River that many boxes don't have, and might not ever.

  • I love Mad River CrossFit! One of the best hours of my day, including warm up, a challenging workout and cool-down. The benefits are seen both physically and mentally with an increase in confidence and well-being. I plan on doing CrossFit for the rest of my life!

  • Love this place and all of the people! This isn't just a place to work out-- this is a family! Awesome workouts with awesome people who really support each other and push each other to be better!! Everyone knows your name -- kind of like Cheers but with weights.
