Getting Started

Our program efficiently combines the most effective training methods of weightlifting, gymnastics and high intensity cardio. Our coaches are knowledgeable and passionate. Led by Erik Zeyher (the only Level 3 Certified CrossFit Trainer in the area), our staff will help you reach your goals and have a ton of fun along the way. We have up to 10 classes a day and all are open to new members. Be prepared for members to know your name, become your friend, care when you miss classes, and cheer for you at the end of a workout.

As a first time member you get to take our “On Ramp” classes. There are Three – One-on-One On-Ramp Classes with our certified trainers. During classes you will learn the basics of weightlifting, bodyweight movements, exercising safely, nutrition and mindset. Each session will include a warm up, skills of the day, practice of those skills, a chalk talk, and a Workout of the Day (WOD).  On Ramp is scheduled on a One-on-One basis to accommodate your schedule and give you the best possible learning experience in order to reach your goals as quickly as possible.

CrossFit is universally scalable, making it the perfect for any individual – regardless of age or ability. Based on your ability, our trainers will help you to scale load(s), movement(s) and intensity, without changing the programing.

Warlock CrossFit will help you obtain measurable, meaningful results that make a difference in your daily life. We want to work with you to set fitness goals and help make them a reality.

“Right now I’m down 25 lbs from when I started at Warlock! I feel better, I’m performing and training better. I want to see how far I can go with CrossFit. I learned how that nutrition is the foundation of everything at Warlock and if you don’t have that you’re not going very far.”  – Lewann T.

“Since November 2017 I have lost 137 pounds, 52 of that since joining Warlock CrossFit. I’ve hit my first goal. That was to beat diabetes. On August 3rd I went to the doctors and was taken off my diabetes medication. My a1c was 5.1 that day! I am now working on goal number 2 to come off my blood pressure medication. I also want my weight to start with a “2”. It originally started with a “4”. I want to be fit and be the best CrossFit athlete I can be. Lastly I want to be a better fireman and gain my interior status again.” -Kenny aka Slimmy

“It’s been a wonderful experience for me to see how I’ve changed mentally and physically. I’ve lost 20 lbs and 17 inches. What I like the most is the confidence I’ve gained being a 55 year old woman. Seeing this transformation in myself has made me feel so good about myself and how I approach my life.”

– Stephanie K.

“Warlock Athletic Academy put me on the course of success. Not only have I gotten fitter from the supportive environment of Warlock, but I’ve become a better student and athlete because of it. I stopped eating so much and started watching what I was eating and sure enough, I lost about 35 – 40 pounds because of Warlock. I used to think losing weight was absolutely impossible until I learned about nutrition and CrossFit. That taught me that nothing is impossible and that giving up only leads to my end.” – Rommy

 “I am a type 2 diabetic. I was diagnosed about 8 years ago after having pancreatitis 3 times and having my gallbladder taken out. I’ve been taking meds for the past 8 years and since the medicine was “controlling” my blood sugar, i didn’t take care of myself. I finally decided enough was enough and started at Warlock CrossFit. Since then I’m down almost 40 lbs and no longer a Type 2 Diabetic. I’m off all of my medication. It’s huge! Never in my life have I felt this good.  It’s a great group of people to work with at Warlock and it’s fun!” – Andrew P.

Read about Drew in the CrossFit Journal

“I had been running for a year and a half, training for triathlons, running 2 days a week, swimming 2 days a week and biking once a week as long as one long training day on Saturdays where I would do 3-4 hours a day. One day a guy i was dating took a picture of me in a somewhat tight shirt. It was at that moment that I looked at myself and I was disgusted. How could I be working out so much and still be fat? Through Warlock we were able to devise a program that allowed me to maintain my endurance while building strength. Now Nearly a year later I do CrossFit 3 days a week, my mile time has gone from 11 minutes to 9.5 and I’m 35 lbs lighter! I’m so grateful to Warlock for giving me the strength and confidence to accomplish my goals!” – Bridget H.

“I fell in love with weights and Warlock CrossFit training. I have learned so much about nutrition, fitness and how it impacts, not just my weight but my everyday life. I’m definitely in the best shape of my life because of Warlock.” – Kelly T.

“I was done playing college soccer and was looking for something to get me where I’ve always wanted to be. I’ve been a hard gainer my whole life and I was never one of the strongest athletes. I wanted to be stronger, faster, and even more explosive. Warlock CrossFit gave me a team atmosphere, a family to help push me to make me better as an athlete and in every aspect of my life. I’ve had tremendous results from CrossFit and the best part from all of this is the personal growth and friendships. Because of Warlock I’ve become a better husband, coach, athlete, owner and everything else in between.” – Erik Z.

“About 26 years ago I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Due to flare up i’ve had my large intestine’s removed. I thought I was “fit” before CrossFit because I was going to the gym but I had it all wrong. So Warlock CrossFit and I crossed paths and let me tell you, I have never in all my life ever felt as great as I do today. At Warlock I’m in the best shape of my life and learning so much about nutrition and fitness!”

– Patty C.

“One year to the day! All I could hope for was a healthy baby girl and to bounce back from the transformation. I started my journey at 138 lbs, got up to about 185 lbs and now sit comfortably at 135. I ate healthy and worked out consistently until I had Ellie. Thanks Warlock CrossFit and their coaches for their encouragement during my pregnancy and I can’t wait to make it back into the gym. Thanks Steven for not going out at 3 am to buy me ice cream when I wanted it.” – Jennell H.

“When I started my journey I was tired of going to the gym and not getting any results. I found Warlock CrossFit and instantly fell I love with the way it pushed your limits everyday. I weighed 265-270 when I started then dropped down to 235 with just going to class. After getting into the nutrition program I’m now down to 199lbs. My life has completely changed and I have Warlock, the coaches and everyone that kills it everyday with me in class to thank for it.” – Matt T.

Heather R.

“Having two babies within 2.5 years, being a stay at home mom for almost 8 years and neglecting myself for way too long, I decided it was time for a change. I started yoga at Warlock and eased my way into CrossFit. Fast forward 3.5 years and I’m down 20+ lbs. I’m a full time coach doing what I love and I’m striving to be the best role model I can be for my two daughters. Warlock CrossFit has changed my life! It has allowed me to show my girls that women can be strong, that what we eat matters and that we need to take care of our bodies”

– Heather R.

“As a former competitive athlete and new mother, I was long overdue for a healthy and lasting lifestyle adjustment. Warlock CrossFit was just the motivation I had been looking for. The challenging workouts and nutrition coaching have helped me bring my fitness back on a new level. I’m currently 25 pounds lighter and feeling so much better than I was just three months ago. I’ve finally found my groove again. This is a  continuous journey, and I’m looking forward to more progress and gains every step of the way.” – Christa A.

Warlock CrossFit

CrossFit is a regimen of constantly varied, functional movements at high intensity (Crossfit Inc.).
What does that mean? Your workouts will be made up of movements that you use in your daily life, but done at a fast pace. These workouts are different everyday, so your body is always changing and trying to adapt in the best possible way. We will constantly push you to new limits with different workouts, so you’re not bored and always challenged. One of our certified Level 1 CrossFit trainers will work with you individually, or in a small group setting to learn the fundamentals of CrossFit through our On Ramp Program.

Kids Academy

Warlock Academy

Warlock Athletic Academy! Where Youth Athletes Get Stronger, Faster and Better. Our goal is simple – to help you (or your child) become a better athlete. We focus on compound lifts and movements that result in stronger, more explosive athletes. We take the time to teach you, our athletes lifting techniques and mechanics so that you understand how to move and how you can improve your movement to become stronger, faster and more explosive. Our program is made up of plyometrics, compound lifts, calisthenics and basic gymnastics movements that grow with the athletes.

Getting stronger, faster and becoming better is not just physical. We also challenge our athletes to grow stronger mentally, by pushing them to become mentally aware and discovering that they are capable of much more than they realize. Developing mental toughness in athletes is just as important as physical achievement at Warlock Athletic Academy.

With improved knowledge and training, our athletes generate more force, power and speed to perform better in their specific sport. This program challenges athletes at every level and will challenge athletes around them to become better. That being said we also scale workouts for athletes so they can achieve a similar stimulus to maximize their improvement while working out.

We offer three, 1-hour classes per week for athletes between the ages of 13-17 and ages 9-12. Descriptions are the schedule for both of those age groups.
