What is Crossfit?
Some people say we’re crazy. Some say we’re in a cult. But to us, CrossFit is more than just a workout – it’s a way of life.
At its core, CrossFit is a program for “broad, general, inclusive” fitness. We don’t “specialize” in any one thing, which is good news for anyone who gets bored with a typical gym routine, and even better news for your body. The CrossFit method of training strives for maximum performance in 10 categories: cardiovascular/
The CrossFit community and trainers also understand that everyone’s needs are different – and you don’t have to be squatting 700lbs. to achieve your own level of elite fitness. That’s why every CrossFit workout is universally scalable, which means that you can experience the full benefits of a CrossFit lifestyle regardless of your age, gender, athletic background, physical capabilities, or any other trait that makes each of us a unique part of the CrossFit family.
Training with CrossFit is not like training at any other gym or with any other program. Every time you walk through the door, you will be challenged to be the fittest, healthiest, most confident, best version of yourself. And you’ll never be on this road alone. A trainer will be by your side through every workout to make sure you can learn and perform every movement safely. And your CrossFit family will be with you to push you through the hardest workouts and celebrate your biggest victories. We celebrate every PR, whether it’s a 400lb deadlift or your first unassisted pullup – what matters to us is that you’re achieving your personal best.
So if you’re looking for a new way to workout, give our community a try. There’s definitely something in the Kool-aid.

About Hardbat Crossfit
CrossFit boxes are springing up across the country and around the world – so what makes Hardbat CrossFit unique?
Founded in 2011 by Ian Hardin and Derek Batman, Hardbat CrossFit presents an innovative approach to training. Ian and Derek are both well-versed and professionally trained not only in CrossFit methods, but also in personal training, exercise science, nutrition, and weightlifting technique. As athletes, they understand the physical demands of regular training. As trainers, they know how to teach to each individual to ensure that every member of Hardbat CrossFit can safely perform workouts and achieve his or her maximum potential.
Ian and Derek bring a new take on fitness to the table. Athletes at Hardbat are strongly encouraged to participate in specially-designed auxiliary strength and mobility programs to supplement daily CrossFit workouts. With an emphasis on building skills and strength from the ground up, Ian and Derek have created a formula that promotes success – in strength, speed, skill, health, and overall fitness – for every member.
Every new member is required to take a series of classes called “Elements.” These classes will be 1-on-1 or in a small group (depending on demand and availability) with a personal trainer. During these sessions, you will learn the basic movements associated with CrossFit so you can walk into any workout safely and with confidence. Contact us for more information about scheduling these introductory classes.
A general pricing guide can be found below. To achieve the full benefits of the program, we recommend attending class at least 3-4 days per week. Each class is led by an experienced trainer; larger classes have an extra trainer to make sure every member receives the necessary coaching and instruction. Membership fees also include auxiliary strength and mobility programming, individualized to each client’s needs. *Please contact us if you have any concerns about cost – we never want price to prevent someone from joining our community.*
