Why should you choose CrossFit Madtown?

CrossFit Madtown has a long history within the CrossFit culture. Opening in 2009, CrossFit Madtown was the first CrossFit gym in Madison and was one of the first few hundred CrossFit gyms in the world out of what is now tens of thousands. Coaches Skipp and Keysha Benzing have been involved with CrossFit since the very early days and were two of the first fifty individuals to be Crossfit-certified by Greg and Lauren Glassman in June 2005.

At CrossFit Madtown, we focus on helping you reach your full athletic potential. Whether you have never lifted a weight before or you have been swinging kettlebells for years, we help you improve your form and increase your efficiency.

We recommend starting with our Introduction to Crossfit class. Most members spend 8-10 weeks in our Introduction to CrossFit class before they begin in the regular sessions. However, it is not required and, depending on your athletic abilities, you may able to start regular classes sooner. The first class is free, so contact us today to sign up!

What is Crossfit?

CrossFit advocates a mix of aerobic exercise, gymnastics (body weight exercises), and Olympic weight lifting. CrossFit describes its strength and conditioning program as constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement with a stated goal of improving fitness, which it defines as “work capacity across broad time and modal domains”. Hour-long classes at affiliated gyms, or “boxes”, typically include a warm-up, a period of individual or group stretching, a skill development segment, and the high-intensity “Workout of the Day” (or WOD). Performance on each WOD is often scored and/or ranked to encourage competition and to allow individuals to track their progress.
