CrossFit Freedom, located in Libertyville, Illinois, is a 12,000 sqft training facility dedicated to the CrossFit methodology of health and fitness. CrossFit is the primary training method used by many US Military Special Operations Combat Forces, including the Navy SEALs. Also, a variety of professional and Olympic athletes have turned to CrossFit to best prepare for competition. Triathletes, football and baseball players, skiers, tennis players, swimmers, and many others competing at the highest levels, are among these CrossFit-trained athletes. Perhaps CrossFit’s greatest attribute, however, is that it is easily adaptable to people in all walks of life, of all age groups, and all fitness levels.

The CrossFit definition of an athlete is “a person who is trained or skilled in strength, power, balance and agility, flexibility, and endurance“. CrossFit training is based upon a system of constantly varied functional movements executed at a high intensity level. We are not your typical gym or health club, which are filled with ineffective isolation movement machines - the same old routine. Instead, we teach the precise use of such equipment as Olympic bars and bumper plates, kettle bells and pull-up bars, med balls, rowers, rings, and climbing ropes. We combine strength and power training with metabolic conditioning, a combination necessary for true elite fitness.

There are no tanning beds here, and no salon. You will not find a juice bar offering sugar-loaded drinks or protein candy bars. Instead, you will learn how to best fuel your body for optimal fitness and longevity, and have access to whole, natural food sources to best recover after our workouts. At CrossFit Freedom we have highly skilled, CrossFit-certified coaches. Your workouts will be conducted in groups of varying sizes, and always under the guidance of a coach. Working under the instruction of a coach will help you to perfect technique in everything from natural functional movements to complex Olympic lifts, taking you to your full potential.

We come here to work, to push ourselves, to push each other, and to get into the best shape and condition of our lives. Ours is a community of members of all fitness levels and experience, who understand that this will not be easy, but that the payoff will be worth it. Come join us at CrossFit Freedom and break out of your limits.
