Who We Are!

Where we are.
Arctic CrossFit is situated in the heart of Anchorage, Alaska and located at Joint-Based Elmendorf-Richardson, Hangar 5.

Who we are.
Our namesake was inspired by the nature of our surroundings. We intend to embody the fighting spirit of the brave men and women of the U.S. military and other agencies who have put themselves on the line to preserve stability and security for the tip of spear here in Alaska.

Arctic CrossFit is a military non-profit military affiliate. We offer group coaching via the CrossFit methodology. CrossFit workouts are comprised of constantly varied, functional movements, performed at a high intensity. Our natural, primal movements largely influence the movements we perform in our workouts. Challenges in life can be unforeseeable, especially for the rugged and intolerable wilderness of the Alaskan outback. We train for this by keeping our workouts broad and constantly varied, infusing multiple functional movements performed at a high intensity.

What we do.
So what does that mean? It means that at Arctic CrossFit you will not be jumping onto ellipticals and weight machines.  You will be the machine. You will find working out with pull up bars, kettle bells and barbells in combination with squatting, running, jumping, rowing, and lifting – moving your body the way it is meant to be moved. All of your workouts will be comprised of exercises that mimic movements performed in day-to-day life or sports. These functional movements are necessary and common in your daily activities regardless of your background.

It also means that you will never get bored. With our constantly varied programming you will rarely do the same workout twice in any 6 month period. You’ll never have to program your own workouts or spend hours in the gym. Instead, each day a workout will be provided for you (WOD – Workout of the Day) that is scalable to your fitness level. Some workouts you will encounter will be 5 minutes long.  Others will be 30 or more.

At Arctic CrossFit, we don’t train to specialize. Rather our fitness program is designed to improve your capacity across ten recognized fitness domains: cardio-respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. The result is comprehensive fitness and restored vitality.
