Pre-payment options will no longer be available. If you are currently a pre-payer once your time is up you will have to switch to one of the options listed above.
CrossFit is all about being comfortable with uncomfortable. During these group workouts, we will push you as hard as we can, without compromising your ability to safely conduct the movements used in the workout. We will continually ramp up the intensity of your workouts as you become more proficient and comfortable with the various lifts and movements that we do.
One aspect of how CrossFit differs from other programs is that you will be held accountable for the goals that you have set for yourself. Your potential is usually much more than what you believe it to be and we will push you to achieve your goals. Contact us today to set up a time to tour our facility.
Our trainers will teach you skills, habits, and nutritional knowledge you will need to achieve revolutionary results and sustain a lifetime of fitness.
Ages 11-16 are welcome
CrossFit Teens is a strength and conditioning program designed for 11-16 year olds. The teens classes do not lift heavy weights. Instead we focus more on strength training through the use of kettlebells, medicine balls and a lot of body weight exercises like pull-ups and push-ups. We also incorporate basic gymnastics to increase agility, mobility, and flexibility. No previous athleticism is required; we can modify any movement for any ability! The teen’s classes run every Wednesday and Friday from 3-4pm!
Ages 5-10 are welcome

At a young age I discovered my love for sports, competition, and feeling part of a team; as an adult CrossFit has allowed me to continue having all of that. I was a competitive gymnast for 12 years. I also played on various soccer and competitive cheerleading teams throughout high school.
I have been a personal and small group trainer for over 6 years and have found my true passion in helping people discover how much proper nutrition and exercise can impact one’s life. I’ve helped hundreds of people find a love of living a healthier lifestyle and I want to help you too! CrossFit has changed my life in a lot of ways, I’ve met a lot of amazing people because of it, it has pushed me harder (in a great way) than I ever thought I could be pushed, and has given me the chance to share this with all of you!
Greg brings a unique perspective on CrossFit, training, and coaching to the members at CrossFit 2A. He has seen CrossFit’s community, workouts, and engagement enable people of all types to follow a lifelong path of fitness and health.
Growing up, Greg was a one-sport athlete, ultimately playing mens’ soccer for the Hamilton College Continentals while earning a B.A. in Economics in the class fo 2007. After college, he found himself desk-bound and spending more time in the gym with fewer results – a frustrating situation all too familiar for so many people.
Greg found CrossFit in 2010. After taking his first class, his entire approach to health and fitness was radically changed. Since then, Greg has helped people of all types realize their fitness goals – weight loss, athletic performance, general physical ability, improved strength, and even people who just loved the social community that CrossFit provides.

Mike was introduced to CrossFit in 2011 by stumbling upon CrossFit.com. When he saw the brutal WOD of the day he knew he wanted in.
CrossFit has been both challenging and rewarding for Mike. Benefiting his healthy lifestyle and career as a police officer. Mike have competed in several CrossFit competitions, including the 7th Annual First Responders Challenge.
Growing up he played several sports, including Hockey, Wrestling and Martial Arts. He became a L1-CrossFit Trainer to help people reach their goals both short and long term and to show people how CrossFit is designed for both the average person and the elite athlete!
Greg Smith was born on a Trans-Siberian train near Irkutsk, Siberia, Soviet Union, while his mother Feride was travelling to Vladivostok, where his father Hamit, a Red Army political commissar, was stationed. He was raised as the only son in a Bashkir-Tatar family in a village near Ufa in Soviet republic of Bashkortostan. When his mother took him and his sisters into a performance of the ballet "Song of the Cranes", he fell in love with dance.
As a child he was encouraged to dance in Bashkir folk performances and his precocity was soon noticed by teachers who encouraged him to train in Leningrad. On a tour stop in Moscow with a local ballet company, Greg auditioned for the Bolshoi ballet company and was accepted. However, he felt that the Kirov Ballet school was the best, so he left the local touring company and bought a ticket to Boston, MA.
After getting to the US Greg discovered CrossFit and gave up his life as a dancer. The rest is, as they say, history.
Jeremy is an expert in training for long-distance and obstacle course races. He got his start in athletics in track and cross country where he first learned a great deal about proper training and diet. In college Jeremy ran more recreationally than competitively and started hitting the gym a lot more. In 2008 a friend moved back to the area and opened a new traning facility, Wolf Brigade Gym in Rochester, NY.
At Wolf Brigade Jeremy got to train with elite athletes, LEO, military and fire personnel and had the opportunity to develop both physically and mentally.
Jeremy enjoys testing his fitness in a "real world" setting where there isn't a clock on the wall or a rep count. He is almost always training for his next GORUCK event.
E-Mail Jeremy now. He is available for personal training and sport/event preparation.
Civilize the mind but make savage the body.
When Todd started with us he was out of shape and looking for a new start. In the past year he has made amazing improvements! He's not only one of the hardest working athletes in every workout, but will do extra work to help the last person not have to finish alone!
It has been a lot of fun to see Todd and his two daughters workout with one another. They're so motivating and encouraging to one another! Todd has worked very hard on both his fitness and mobility issues and I can't wait to see how much more he can improve in the years to come. He is a great addition to the CF2A family. His determination and positive spirit is motivating to everyone around him! Congrats Todd! You Rock!
What led you to CrossFit 2A?
I came to the CrossFit 2A open house when Nicole first opened and was very interested in what Nicole had to offer. My daughter joined and in the winter of that year Nicole judged the Concord team for the first responders challenge. I started coming in to support their team and this is when I really started becoming interested in the movements and exercises and the overall community base that was CrossFit.
What is the biggest change you’ve seen in yourself since you started CrossFit?
Biggest change is how I feel, both mentally and physically. I can jog again and ran my first 5K and I feel good doing it.
What are your goals going forward and what do you think will help you achieve them?
To continue to progress with my cardio and strength. To do this I need to stay focused, have fun, and listen to all the great coaches at 2A.
How has CrossFit 2A helped you in your day to day life?
I have more energy and a better attitude in general. CrossFit teaches you to go slow and steady and gains will come.
What would you recommend to someone who is just starting out with CrossFit or is too afraid to try it?
I would recommend to anyone to give CrossFit a try, listen to the coaches and other members, and do what you can do and feel good about what you did do.
Any other comments about your experience and transformation?
I would like to thank all the coaches, and fellow members for the support, and a special thanks to my boot camp coach Erica! Who always kicks my butt Sunday morning! CrossFit 2A is a great box and I am proud to be a 2A crossfitter. I enjoy training with my kids and the always make working out fun.

Absolutely! Your needs and the Olympic athlete’s differ by degree not kind. Increased power, strength, cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, flexibility, stamina, coordination, agility, balance, and coordination are each important to the world’s best athletes and to our grandparents. The amazing truth is that the very same methods that elicit optimal response in the Olympic or professional athlete will optimize the same response in the elderly. Of course, we can’t load your grandmother with the same squatting weight that we’d assign an Olympic skier, but they both need to squat. In fact, squatting is essential to maintaining functional independence and improving fitness. Squatting is just one example of a movement that is universally valuable and essential yet rarely taught to any but the most advanced of athletes. This is a tragedy. Through painstakingly thorough coaching and incremental load assignment CrossFit has been able to teach anyone who can care for themselves to perform safely and with maximum efficacy the same movements typically utilized by professional coaches in elite and certainly exclusive environments.
CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program in two distinct senses. First, we are a core strength and conditioning program in the sense that the fitness we develop is foundational to all other athletic needs. This is the same sense in which the university courses required of a particular major are called the “core curriculum”. This is the stuff that everyone needs. Second, we are a “core” strength and conditioning program in the literal sense meaning the center of something. Much of our work focuses on the major functional axis of the human body, the extension and flexion, of the hips and extension, flexion, and rotation of the torso or trunk. The primacy of core strength and conditioning in this sense is supported by the simple observation that powerful hip extension alone is necessary and nearly sufficient for elite athletic performance. That is, our experience has been that no one without the capacity for powerful hip extension enjoys great athletic prowess and nearly everyone we’ve met with that capacity was a great athlete. Running, jumping, punching and throwing all originate at the core. At CrossFit we endeavor to develop our athletes from the inside out, from core to extremity, which is by the way how good functional movements recruit muscle, from the core to the extremities.
CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program. We have designed our program to elicit as broad an adaptational response as possible. CrossFit is not a specialized fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness domains. They are Cardiovascular and Respiratory endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.
The CrossFit Program was developed to enhance an individual’s competency at all physical tasks. Our athletes are trained to perform successfully at multiple, diverse, and randomized physical challenges. This fitness is demanded of military and police personnel, firefighters, and many sports requiring total or complete physical prowess. CrossFit has proven effective in these arenas. Aside from the breadth or totality of fitness the CrossFit Program seeks, our program is distinctive, if not unique, in its focus on maximizing neuroendocrine response, developing power, cross-training with multiple training modalities, constant training and practice with functional movements, and the development of successful diet strategies.
You’re in luck. We hear this often, but the truth is that fitness, wellness, and pathology (sickness) are measures of the same entity, your health. There are a multitude of measurable parameters that can be ordered from sick (pathological) to well (normal) to fit (better than normal). These include but are not limited to blood pressure, cholesterol, heart rate, body fat, muscle mass, flexibility, and strength. It seems as though all of the body functions that can go awry have states that are pathological, normal, and exceptional and that elite athletes typically show these parameters in the exceptional range. The CrossFit view is that fitness and health are the same thing. It is also interesting to notice that the health professional maintains your health with drugs and surgery each with potentially undesirable side effect whereas the CrossFit Coach typically achieves a superior result always with “side benefit” vs. side effect.
