The word Verus is defined in the dictionary as "true," "authentic," and "genuine." These three words embody the spirit behind our fitness community, and reflect our intention for opening CrossFit VERUS. Each member begins his or her journey at a different level of fitness and experience, and our hope is that you will come as you are, with no shame, fear, or arrogance. We value your CrossFit COMMITMENT, regardless of your physical PERFORMANCE.
VERUS was also the name of one of the first featured Gladiators who fought and earned his freedom in the Colosseum in ancient Rome. Fortunately, sports entertainment has evolved since then, so our "Gladiators" are metaphorical. However, we strive to champion the same steadfast heart and powerful mindset that made ancient Gladiators successful in their arena. The best Gladiators are focused on the present, they aren't held back by the past, or by the critics in the bleachers. Their bodies and spirits are connected to what is right in front of them, which allows them to effectively fight today's battles.
We use the sport of CrossFit to help our members both achieve their desired physical fitness levels and create a Gladiator's spirit. Each of us enters our own "arenas" on a daily basis, so we invite you to train in our arena so that you can be a Gladiator in yours!
We all have battles to face everyday.
Join other Gladiators consistently at The Arena.
Give your best effort. You only get OUT what you put IN.
