CROSSFIT Bartlesville is nothing like a typical gym.  We follow the CrossFit method and philosophy of cultivating elite fitness in individuals and athletes.  This is done by doing workouts  that are constantly varied, functional and executed at high intensity.

We are located at 3822 SE Kentucky, Bartlesville Ok in a 4500 square foot warehouse gym that is 100% CrossFit.

The CFB approach to fitness produces undeniable results in children to competitive athletes and everything in between.  We combine the most effective training methods of Endurance (running, rowing, jumping rope, etc.), Weightlifting (squats, deadlifts, clean & jerks, snatches, etc.) and Gymnastics (pull-ups, handstands, rings, etc.).  This approach to fitness is unrivaled in terms of diversity of exercises, programming and drills.

Every time you come to the gym you will receive coaching, much like private training, but within a group setting.  Each workout will be designed by a CrossFit coach, the mechanics of the movements will be explained before the workout begins, and the coach(es) will also make sure that you are doing everything safely during the workout.

Our training is intense and creates a bond among our members that is undeniable and can't be duplicated in a traditional gym setting or on your own. The community aspect of CFB is our greatest strength.  Joining CROSSFIT Bartlesville has many benefits:  camaraderie, support, motivation, and accountability to name a few.  When you workout with other people and have proper coaching, you are more likely to achieve the results you want, less likely to miss workouts and will work 10x harder than you will on your own.

Watch:  "Let me tell you about CrossFit"

CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program built on constantly varied, functional movements done at high intensity.  CrossFit is not a specialized fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in the 10 General Physical Skills.

The 10 General Physical Skills are defined as follows:    
  • Endurance – The ability of body systems to gather, process, and deliver oxygen (cardiovascular/respiratory endurance).
  • Stamina – The ability of body systems to process, deliver, store, and utilize energy. (capacity to maintain repetitive muscular movements)
  • Strength – The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply force.
  • Flexibility – the ability to maximize the range of motion at a given joint.
  • Power – The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply maximum force in minimum time.
  • Speed – The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement.
  • Coordination – The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a single distinct movement.
  • Agility – The ability to minimize transition time from one movement pattern to another.
  • Balance – The ability to control the placement of the body’s center of gravity in relation to its support base.
  • Accuracy – The ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity.

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.

CrossFit delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness.

CrossFit is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. It has been used for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load (weight) and intensity; we don’t change programs.

Thousands of athletes worldwide have used the CrossFit method and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.
