Our goal at Bolt Athletics and CrossFit Bolt is to provide a superior training experience coupled with measurable results. More simply put we want you to have fun while training hard, walking out the door with a sense of community, accomplishment, and tangible physical benefits. We offer training in the CrossFit methodology and sports performance training for competitive athletes.
We look different, we feel different, we are different. When you stop by you can expect a warm welcome and will witness people of various size, shape and background challenging themselves in an energetic and encouraging environment. What you won't see are treadmills, ellipticals, mirrors, gawkers, unfriendly members doing their own thing, or the general sense of 'blah' associated with most globo-gyms. Our hope is that because of your experience at Bolt, you will no longer dread going to the gym, but dread not being at the gym longer.

In contrast to a broad, general, and inclusive fitness (the goal of CrossFit), competitive athletics demand a unique set of skills and physical qualities. Bolt Athletics provides a unique training regimen designed to elicit greater competency in sports specific skill sets.
The goal of Bolt Athletics training is improved performance on the field of play. We utilize the demands of a particular sport to determine our training emphasis. Strength, speed, power, agility and conditioning are all highly coveted attributes in the pursuit of athletic prowess. However, we do not desire strength for the sake of strength (unless you are a powerlifter); our goal is applicable strength, speed and power resulting in advanced on-field performance. Additionally, Bolt Athletics utilizes elements of the CrossFit methodology to promote relevent strength and conditioning congruent to the known time and modal domains of sport. Simply put, Bolt Athletics is an intense, virtuous training program for the specialist.more
