Message from Toots

CrossFit is the force of nature I have found that pushes me to be a better, stronger, wiser and  healthier person.  I believe everyone can be healthy and it is only a matter of dedication to reach your goals. At Stampede CrossFit, we aim to improve ourselves and our athlete’s life through movement, strength and perseverance.

I encourage all to join our Stampede CrossFit family.  It’s an enjoyable way to be challenged daily.  We look forward to sharing the CrossFit endeavors that lie ahead with you.  Hope to see you at the gym soon: Forging Elite Fitness, Forging Elite Family, Forging Everlasting Health.

Message From Jennifer

CrossFit is my passion and opening up Stampede CrossFit has given me a forum to share this passion with my community.  I strive to optimize the performance and enhance the lives of all my athletes through CrossFit.  I believe there is an inner athlete in all of us and training can be fun!  My goal is to make Stampede CrossFit a place where good times and hard work collide head on.  Stampede CrossFit is more than a gym.  It is a place where you can leave your worries at the door, train hard, and see results.  We are a community at Stampede CrossFit and look forward to each new addition to the family.  Hope to see you at the gym soon: Forging Elite Fitness, Forging Strong Family, Forging Everlasting Health.
