What is CrossFit?

Official definition? CrossFit is a branded fitness regimen that involves constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. It is a lifestyle characterized by safe, effective exercise for all age groups, with an emphasis on clean nutrition.

What is CrossFit at Iron Legion? Our CrossFit programs are specifically created to develop your GPP. GPP is General Physical Preparedness. This means that we focus on your overall state. We do not isolate body parts in our CrossFit program. We will be utilizing your entire body from head to toe.

We use unique combinations of weightlifting, strongman, cardio, and gymnastics to build your strength, enhance your cardio, and create unstoppable endurance. The result? GPP. The secondary result? Aesthetic differences you can be proud of and an ironclad confidence that you can take on anything.

Meet Your Instructors

Our CrossFit instructors have been collectively studying and perfecting their CrossFit practices and techniques for decades. The ethos and methodology of Iron Legion are to train members of the clan to master physical training techniques and to forge better humans.

Ted Dreaver

Ted Dreaver, fitness aficionado and founder of Iron Legion, is a natural-born leader who has always prioritized overall health and wellness. He lived a life on the road as a kid and trained in the gym when he could. The globo-gym space always bothered him. It was sterile, faceless, impersonal, and completely devoid of social connection. There was no real push to get better. This drive for personal connection and community, paired with his passion for teaching others, led to the Iron Legion that exists today.

“CrossFit in and of itself for us is a fitness program that rejects the status quo, we’re not big on the globo-gym style where you don’t know anyone. You are never left on your own”.

Kaitie Neratka

My philosophy as a coach has always been quality over quantity. Whether it’s weight, skill level or reps. If you can’t do a skill at its most basic level extremely well you do not need to be adding weight or speed or technical difficulty. I know some may disagree with this and of course there are exceptions to every rule.. BUT it never fails that when I have two athletes at the same level and one has patience to work on perfecting a skill and another rushes to just do the cool stuff, every single time the athlete who took the time will pass up the athlete who didn’t.

I am a L1 certified Crossfit Coach. I have my masters in exercise science and rehabilitation and my NASM nutrition certification.
