Founded in March of 2013 by friends Tim Schlabach and Pete Doan, 924 CrossFit resides comfortably in the 5,400 square foot facility located just on the West End of Berlin, Ohio. Current owners, Dustin Kaufman and Irene Burgett, continue the simple philosophy when it comes to running their gym, community first. If the relationships are formed then the fitness will follow. Dustin and Irene were both members of the gym starting in 2013. With 6 years of relationship building, it was an easy transition for members to see them as the new owners. They strive to build people up and believe that being physically healthy is directly related to one’s spiritual health and that you can not have one without the other.
Since acquiring the gym in May of 2019, Dustin and Irene have added several new coaches to help assist the 40+ classes that are offered in a given week. There are classes to fit almost anyone, CrossFit, Bootcamp and Funfit. Some classes use barbells and some use them very little. The goal in every class is to meet people where they are at in their fitness journey and help them reach their goals.
CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
CrossFit delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. The specialty of CrossFit is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and even life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. CrossFit has used the same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. CrossFit scales load and intensity, not programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed workouts posted daily on the CrossFit main site and have distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.
