Viking CrossFit is owned by Natalie and Jason Garcia, and Cody Jolley, who first discovered CrossFit in 2007 upon being introduced to the CrossFit.com website. We were instantly intrigued, and after doing our first workout, were instantly hooked. We've been hooked on CrossFit ever since. We are committed to teaching the skills that are the foundation of CrossFit. We know how CrossFit has changed our lives, and we are positive it can change yours. With the help of our dedicated trainers and clients, we are making our gym better everyday.

What We Do?
CrossFit is a research based, results driven, strength and conditioning program. The stimulus provided are, by design, constantly varied, functional movements, performed at a high intensity. Our specialty is not specializing and our goal is constant progress. We are a group of dedicated trainers who want our clients to become stronger, leaner, faster, and more coordinated. What we do at Viking CrossFit is teach you how to move better. We draw from a wide variety of gymnastics and weightlifting movements and incorporate them in ways that make you stronger and more fit. We do not use machines. We use the body and we use weights to train more effectively. The coaching is supportive and enthusiastic to anyone who is willing to focus and put in the work.
Before you are able to participate in the Group WODs (Workouts of the Day), you are trained in the basic movements of CrossFit. Then every month we have a “Skill-of-the-Month” where we focus on a specific movement or ability. For example, we may focus on the Kipping Pull-Up, which teaches a more fluid movement and turns a simple pull-up into an intense and functional exercise. Every time you focus on a specific skill and then follow it with a workout it improves your end result.
Methods During ClassEach one-hour class is held in a group and is lead by an experienced trainer who will guide you through a warm-up and help you work on the skill for that month. You will then receive specific instruction on how to complete the workout for that day. The trainer will critique your form and give you guidance through the entire workout. Each day your workout is different creating a variety that keeps things interesting and exciting. When you come to Viking CrossFit you have hired a personal trainer. Your trainer will guide you to your personal goals and programming needs. We have a variety of clients that include: firefighters, police officers, service members, moms, nurses, college athletes, and those in the more senior part of their lives. Workouts are scaled to fit the individual and then motivate that individual to be the best that they can be.
