About Hardbat Crossfit
Derek Batman opened Hardbat fresh out of West Chester University when he was 22 years old. He had a passion for working directly with people of all ages and abilities, and CrossFit best fulfilled that dream job. Like with all startup companies, the first few years were rough and an unprecedented learning experience, but he would do it all over again if he had to. It has now been 5 years, and it has been nothing short of a pleasure watching people surpass their original goals and create new ones they never would have imagined were possible. He genuinely loves what he does, and ensures that he only bring people onto the team here at Hardbat who share that same quality.
