CrossFit ERT is a family affair. We are family. We bring our at-home families with us to interact with our gym family. It is not unusual to see kids stretching alongside their parents after a difficult WOD. It is also not unusual to see members sitting around chatting after class, while their kids ride bikes in the back lot. We encourage family interaction through fitness. We work hard and we play harder. We raise money for the causes important to us through “Heroes Are Human”.
We do business together. We support each other and we push each other to achieve things we never thought possible. This is not a gym where you’re just a number and no one knows your name. The people here genuinely care about each other. Yes, you’ll get a great workout at ERT, but your new friends will help you take your fitness to the next level. Guaranteed. Welcome to the #fitFAM!
