About Us

We train for longevity, we train for health and most of all, and we train for fun!

Riptide CrossFit is more than just a gym. We are a community of Support, Education and Encouragement that will help you achieve your fitness goals.

Riptide CrossFit is a 1,500 square-foot box located just a few blocks from Las Olas Blvd in downtown Ft. Lauderdale. We offer a broad training program that is suitable for any level of fitness. Our program is based on CrossFit methodology, which means we emphasize on constantly varied, functional movements (like squats and push-ups) performed at a high-intensity. Functional movements are organic in nature, innate to our DNA and essential to our quality of life.

 

What will you find in our CrossFit Box?

In our box, you will find pull-up bars, ropes and rings. We use free weights and kettle bells, rowing machines and jump ropes. Our classes are led by the best Crossfit coaches who teach movements, coach form and inspire group workouts all throughout the day.

The staff at Riptide CrossFit will push you to the max so that you’re healthy, strong and in shape. RTC staff will take into account not only CrossFit competitions, but they will be able to evaluate other physical endeavors and help you reach your goals. Our staff realizes that competition is not for everyone, and knows that competitors are the exception rather than the norm. RTC wants to work with everyone to help them lose weight, run a 5k or just be a stay at home Mom/Dad that can pick up their children. To do this we will use the methodology talked about above, but the hard work and dedication comes down to you.
