In order to learn the movements for CrossFit we start with Elements.  These are three one-on-one, one hour sessions, with a coach. Scheduled according to your availability, these sessions are required in order to get you familiar & prepared with the techniques & movements that we do in class. These sessions also include a workout. When Elements are completed you're ready for CrossFit Classes.

CrossFit is a training program that builds strength and conditioning through extremely varied and challenging workouts while having Olympic or Power-lifting incorporated. Each day the workout will test a different part of your functional strength or conditioning, not specializing in one particular thing, but rather with the goal of building a body that’s capable of practically anything and everything.  CrossFit can be for everyone as movements can be scaled.

This is the heart of our programming.  You'll continue the training from what you've learned in the Elements Sessions.

Train with us and you’ll also experience the difference great programming can make!  Workouts are not random and thrown together last minute, but rather thought out and planned over days, weeks, and months to create the greatest training benefit possible.  Good programming is not easy.  It takes time, dedication, and hard work to do it right.  But that’s our job, not yours.  And it doesn’t hurt that gym owner, Joe Cebulski, was an Olympic level Decathlete for Team USA and brings that experience and knowledge to 8th Day Gym on a daily basis!

All you have to do is come in, enjoy our welcoming team-like atmosphere, listen to our expert coaches, make some new friends, have a few laughs, give it your all, and success is yours.

8th Day Gym Boot Camp classes vary in style!  Our Boot camp workout is a type of interval training — bursts of intense activity alternated with intervals of lighter activity. You can expect to do movements, such as pullups, pushups, lunges and crunches, wall balls, as well as drills and sprints.   It's similar in structure as CrossFit class minus most of the skill movements and barbell lifting.  At 8th Day Gym, we pride ourselves on providing nothing but the best, and it shines through 8th Day Bootcamp.

We start with a mission - To help ANYONE from ANY FITNESS LEVEL reach their goals. How can we accommodate everyone?  Though 8th Day Bootcamp is not CrossFit, we use scalability.  Scalability is a set of small potential tweaks that allow a more advanced athlete and true beginner to do the same workout, while BOTH feeling challenged. Kinda like choosing a setting: beginner, intermediate, advanced. A trained coach will help YOU decide where YOU feel comfortable.  We’ll tailor the workout, because want you to succeed...and you will! Come and be a part of the community!

Boot Camp classes are available Monday through Friday 6:00am, 9:00am, 12:30pm, 4:00pm,  5:00pm, 6:00pm and Saturday 9:00am. 

If you'd like to participate in our CrossFit Classes, Elements Sessions are required.

I've been running, doing triathlons and working out in gyms for about 10 years. This is the first time I have broken through plateaus and experienced real, noticeable results. These guys are great!

— Jason B

Fitness is often sought out yet seldom found. Most people concentrate so much on one aspect of training they miss out on becoming completely fit. At 8th Day Gym the workouts and programming are geared toward achieving total body fitness. Come in and find out how to increase your bench press by doing squats and become a faster marathoner by doing push ups and pull ups. Your results will be your reward.

I have been training at 8th Day for a year now. Never before have I experienced such gains in strength, agility, and stamina. 8th Day has not only become an incredible training facility for me, it is also my community.

— Steve

What can I say!! This has been the best training I have gotten involved with! I have always been involved with sports and fitness, I did the triathlon thing, I was bored with workouts and group ex classes...doing the same ol' same ol'. I started at 8th Day this summer and love it. The workouts challenge the full body, have variety and are fun. The people are welcoming, friendly, encouraging and un-intimidating. The coaches are always willing to help and educate.
