We’re more than a gym – we’re a tight-knit community. Located in Crystal Valley Ranch in Castle Rock, Colorado, our community trains vigorously and embraces hard work.

No matter your age, gender, race, or fitness level, stepping into our gym means entering a welcoming, safe space. Our positive atmosphere supports and encourages all athletes. CrossFit is for everyone, especially those seeking a path to wellness and fitness, regardless of their athletic history.

Workouts created with the needs of our community in mind.

At CrossFit Crusade, we write programming to encompass all areas of fitness. This starts with the WOD or Workout of the Day. We keep track of our scores, times, and progress to see how we have improved. Workouts are short and intense. We are not looking to go slow and easy. We need intensity to achieve results. The WOD is your chance to push it and make the most of your workout.

Strength days at CrossFit Crusade are focused, calculated, and challenging. This means that on a strength day, there is no “WOD.” You will give your all to the strength program, including all the accessories that will make you better. Muscle burns fat, and the more lean muscle we have, the better we will perform, and the better we will look.

We encourage all new athletes to take advantage of our “Fundamentals” program. Athletes meet three times in a small class environment to go over the basics of CrossFit and what to expect in a CrossFit class. It’s essential you understand how to squat, press, and deadlift, before the clock says 3-2-1 GO!

Learn how to move large loads, long distances, quickly. The snatch and the clean and jerk are the purest expressions of power and speed, making it the go-to choice for athletes and technicians alike. With proper training, you will learn to use your body to move weight and create strength to support against outside forces.

We recognize that our members are full-time working adults, and making nutrition a priority for you and your family will take effort. But through a healthy diet and exercise, you can feel energized and fight against chronic diseases, such as obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and more. We offer help with grocery lists, suggested meal plans, and one-on-one health coaching to help you implement changes that work.

If you are looking for the best CrossFit gym in Castle Rock, look no further! Jacob and Sammie are genuinely the kindest people who care about your wellbeing and helping you achieve your goals. I have been doing CF for almost 3 years and in just 2 months of going to CrossFit Crusade, I have gone from not being able to do GHD sit ups and handstand pushups, to being able to do them with confidence. The programing that Jacob has written is incredible - 3 days a week of WODs and 2 days of strength training allows each athlete to get stronger without risking injury. Additionally, the small class sizes, ensure that you get plenty of 1:1 direction! On top of that, the people who go to this gym are amazing. The encouragement, laughs, and friendship that I feel whenever I walk through the doors is truly the best :)

As someone who has been doing CrossFit since 2012, I have been to many gyms, and the most important things to me in a gym are coaching and community. Jacob and Sammie have cultivated a culture that embodies these values 100%. Whether you're a seasoned athlete, or new to CrossFit/fitness, Crusade will take care of you. CrossFit Crusade is full of kind-hearted people, and will get you FIT! Thanks for everything ❤️

I have been to 15+ crossfit gyms over the last year due to traveling and relocating. I had never met Jacob previously and dropped in a week after Crossfit Crusade opened because it was near my house and I was incredibly surprised. I can honestly say Jacob is by far the best Crossfit trainer I have ever had! He keeps the environment super light-hearted yet knows how to push any level of athlete. He has also corrected various of my techniques in ways no other trainer has done, leading to improved fitness results.

If you're looking for a welcoming, close community with an amazing coach and top notch facility, this is it. Whether you're new to crossfit, an OG, or anywhere in between Jacob will meet you where you are with programming. Crossfit Crusade's approach is focused on foundation and making sure your movements are there before progressing. Highly recommend giving them a try!

I have been doing crossfit for 10 years. I started when I was 49. I am in better shape now than I was when I was 25 both physically and mentally. Life has moved me around geographically, and because of this I have belonged to many OK gyms and a couple of great gyms. Jacob is THE best coach. My wife and I just had the opportunity to visit Crusade after not seeing him for several years. His skill level is unmatched… his determination to work with all abilities and ages is unmatched and his enthusiasm and desire to build a great, healthy community is unmatched. If you want to dramatically improve your life, both physically and mentally, this is the guy to work with and the gym to join.

Absolutely thrilled to have found this place! What a welcoming and challenging environment. Jacob is a fantastic coach and has proven to me that I sell myself short on what I can accomplish. This was a great group class and I signed up as a member after my free trial!!!

Jacob has been amazing. He’s a great guy, and an amazing coach. It’s great to have a few minutes to get to know each other and chill, and then it’s no mercy as I hit the weights and exercise! My legs have hurt in the best way for two weeks, and I can already feel my endurance and form improving. I have a long way to go but I know Jacob will be there to help and push me along the way. I highly recommend this gym!!

Highly recommend! Jacob is a phenomenal coach. He has worked with me through the many phases of my CrossFit journey, from not working out to getting back in the swing of things, to working out while pregnant, to recovering after pregnancy, and now to getting even stronger and healthier. The programming is his own and very well thought out, as well as flexible for each person’s skill level. I am excited to see how it improves my athleticism. The location is also spectacular- I love all the natural light from the windows and the view. Cheers to Sammie, Jacob, and CrossFit Crusade!

I’ve been doing CrossFit on and off for 10 years and this gym has the best coaching and programming I’ve encountered. Coach Jacob is incredibly attentive, encouraging and understands an athlete’s individual needs so you get the best workout possible. All workouts are scalable to your level of fitness, and everyone is encouraging and helpful! The space is very clean and inviting. Joining this gym will be one of the best decisions you make regarding health, fitness, and community!

“ The magic is in the movement, the art is in the programming, the science is in the explanation, and the fun is in the community. ”
