    We Develop Athletes

    Are you or your children looking to take their fitness to the next level? At CrossFit Lake Zurich, we have developed a championship pedigree that extended to multiple sports and various events. Two of our most recent successful athletes, Wesley Annan and Faith Ekakitie, just squared off in the Rose Bowl on January 1st, 2016. Our winning formula has been forged over the past 11 years of professional, hands-on training experience working alongside the best health and fitness practitioners in the area. Since we program for the entire life-cycle of the athlete, we are better able to progress the athlete to heighten their performance while reducing injuries.

    Do you workout or train?


    It is a rather simple question and yet many people who exercise do not know the difference. Here are some of the main differences:


    - Random exercise done with random variables

    - Reactive in nature

    - Focus on quantity not quality 

    - Short term failure



    - Planned, progressive programmed variables

    - Proactive in nature

    - Focus on quality not quantity 

    - Long term success


    Do you workout or train? Come find out.

    Five days into the New Year and 60% of people who have made resolutions have already quit. One huge reason is the lack of accountability. Want to lose weight? GREAT! Follow these simple steps to be more successful:

    Step 1: tell everyone you know that your goal is to lose weight in 2016.

    Step 2: clean out the fridge and cabinets. Toss all of the sugar, processed crap that you have been hoarding or seek in times you need comfort. Eat lean meat, vegetables, nuts, seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar.

    Step 3: don't join a gym. You read right. Gyms offer 0 accountability and just want your money. DYK that 1 in 10 people who sign up for a gym membership actually use the gym?  Ridiculous, right?!?! You are just another number in the computer and just another face in the crowd. Find a community of like minded individuals who will push you to truly be stronger mentally and physically.

    Step 4: Get your free assessment and 7 day membership to CrossFit Lake Zurich. We are the highest rated fitness facility in Lake Zurich for a reason. Come experience the difference for yourself today!
