CrossFit Fenway was the first CrossFit facility in downtown Boston. Since 2009, we’ve been doing pure unmitigated CrossFit. Our facility is accessible to all: safe neighborhood, easy transit access, clean and bright location… but inside it’s all sweat, barbells, kettles, pullup bars, grit, and determination.
This is classic CrossFit. Old School. No sauna, no towel service – just performance-proven and results-driven athletic conditioning and personal training.
Every CrossFit is dramatically different. CrossFit Fenway is differentiated by our remarkable community, small class sizes, excellent coaching, outstanding programming. While CrossFit has exploded in recent years and many new affiliates have opened, CrossFit Fenway has been in operation since 2009 delivering amazing results and remaining steadfastly independent of corporate sponsorship.

Q: What is a typical Class?
A: We coach you to perform functional movements at high intensity, giving you a comprehensive full-body workout in under an hour, including skill instruction, strength building, and metabolic conditioning. Classes are instructor-led and peer-driven, providing an excellent mixture of individual coaching and group motivation. You’ll begin with a directed, dynamic warm-up that gets your joints loose, body moving, and your heart pumping. Then we’ll teach you a progression to learn a complicated physical skill, increasing your body awareness. We move on to teaching you how to perform a single lift safely, and coach you through lifting weight in a way that will increase your functional strength. Finally, we conclude our hour with an intense metabolic conditioning workout (metcon, or WOD) that will revolutionize the way your body produces power.
Our goal is creating an athlete that meets a definition of fitness which is broad, general, and inclusive. We refuse to specialize! This general physical preparedness leads to well-rounded athletes and enhances the results of sport-specific training as well.
We help you achieve your specified goals by applying the appropriate training at the appropriate intensity. There is no single tool for every job – but if you never pick up a tool, no job never gets done. Getting started is important. You have to choose that. Then we can show you how to get to your goals.

Q: Is CrossFit right for me?
A: Are you ready to choose it?
Anyone can excel at CrossFit. You won’t have to lift weights beyond your level or perform movements beyond your skill set. We pride ourselves on working with athletes of all different types and ability levels and making them better across all domains of physical activity… and you might learn something about yourself as well.
After all, “Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.” -Mahatma Gandhi.
