As you know, since 2018, Drs. Bret and Lindsey also own Iridium CrossFit in Ames.

While some may be intimidated by what they may see online, here’s some insight into the actual intent of CrossFit! What we love about CrossFit is that there are modifications that can be made to every workout, which makes it accessible to everyone – yes, everyone!

What is Crossfit? CrossFit was founded in 2001 and can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to better performance. CrossFit is so effective it may feel like magic, but in truth, it’s a formula — a formula that works. It’s the formula for everything we do, from forging elite fitness to preventing and reversing chronic disease. It’s the inputs that give us the outcomes, the results that have revolutionized an industry and changed millions of lives for the better.

CrossFit welcomes and unites people of all ages, abilities, and goals. Our workouts are accessible and effective for all. We build strong local communities that drive a deep sense of belonging. The CrossFit program makes people fitter faster and more safely than any other program. We deadlift, clean, squat, and press. We do gymnastics with progressions that are accessible to all. We bike, run, swim, jump, and row. We use intensity customized to the individual. CrossFit works for everyone.

CrossFit provides accountability through coaches who know you, care for you, and modify workouts based on your needs. CrossFit provides a community that makes you feel welcome and is fun. CrossFit gives you measurable progress that motivates you to keep coming back and striving for more.
