CrossFit Yelm (The Yelm WOD Dogs) was established in 2010 by a Policeman and Personal Trainer. We became the first Functional Fitness gym in Yelm, Wa, and began filling a gap in the local fitness community. In our first three years of business we grew so fast we had to move facilities 3 times! We are now in a 5600sqft facility and have 6-9 Coaches at any given time.
From the beginning we have been Veteran owned. To us being an active part of our Armed Forces has been very important. From fundraising to holding up our HEROS on a daily basis. Our current Membership base is 90% Military, Law Enforcement and Firefighters, spouses as well.
Being a part of our community, giving back to our local charities, and helping those in need has always been a high priority in the CrossFit community. CrossFit Yelm is no exception. We rally around each other, help each other, and lift up the cause. Together the South Puget Sound CrossFit gyms have seen amazing things happen so many peoples lives.
This is us, this is CrossFit Yelm.
What is CrossFit?
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.
Our program 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 and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
