After 18 consecutive years of service in Kansas City’s fitness industry, I know you have to invent, re-invent, and evolve to succeed. Precisely why I am so excited and enthused to be a part of the Crossroads Bootcamp Gym. This concept is challenging, motivating and so worth your effort. I look forward to every class that I instruct, and that says it all ...

I was surrounded by good coaches and mentors, who taught me the fundamentals I live by from a very early age. I learned to take a personal interest and pride in being on a team. That lesson of teamwork, of ...

Having two babies in two years wreaked major havoc on my body, I knew I needed to mix it up to get back to my pre-baby body.

As a competitive swimmer and soccer player I was used to the hard work and dedication that came with being involved in sports. After giving up team sports to focus on my education I really missed the team environment that sports provided and I had a hard time finding exercise outlets that...

Over three years ago Crossroads Bootcamp/CrossFit on 18th, turned my idea of health and fitness on it’s ear. The focus is becoming a better athlete, yes, all of our members are treated, and trained like athletes. It makes sense – athletes strive to attain goals, build muscle mass & reduce fat, lift more, run faster, and develop a strong core. You...

As someone who became a cheerleader after being told I was too shy to ever even try, I have always loved a challenge. I found my home away from home at Crossroads Bootcamp almost 3 years ago and it provided me the fitness challenge I had been looking for. With CrossFit’s scalability I was able to come off the couch I had found myself stuck on and push...
