Brief History of the box We met at a CrossFit box. The four of us are truly passionate about CrossFit and what it can do for others.  With our diverse backgrounds (military, line-man, insurance salesman/businessman, and teacher) we were confident we could join forces to create a welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere, with varied programming that could be modified and scaled for ANYONE.  Started with a conversation about our dream in April of 2015 over a few drinks and our box was established in July 2015 with a solid base of 50 members.
Our credo At CrossFit Mettle and Honor, you will be trained, supported, and motivated by experienced coaches who are dedicated in helping you achieve your goals.  It is our mission to teach you how to move, be fit, and healthy.  Walk in with an open mind, ready to start a new journey to a better you.  It might not be easy, but it WILL be WORTH IT.  Together, we will achieve great things.

About us

Our members are our family!  They make everyone feel welcome, which gives our box a warm family feel.

We have members from ages 13 to 70.  Everyday we watch our business owners, firefighters, police officers, teachers, students, mothers, fathers, nurses, military members, etc. walk into the box and leave everything they have on the floor.  Nothing is more inspiring than seeing our athletes PR and do what they once thought not possible.

CrossFit Mettle and Honor is comprised of many families.  Husbands and wives, mothers and sons, fathers and daughters who workout together.  Throughout the day, we have many youngsters watching mom and dad throw down and imitating their movements after class!  Seeing these children learn from their parent’s healthy example makes us smile.

The military is very important to us.  Without the men and women who defend our freedom daily, we would not have a place to workout.  Our box prides itself on offering a special membership for anyone who has received a campaign medal for overseas service, served 30 consecutive or 60 non-consecutive days in Korea, or has ever received hostile fire or imminent danger pay.  We know that PTSD is a serious issue and one of our goals is to provide military members with a safe, supportive place to workout at. We have learned together anything is possible.
