WELCOME! Thank you for stopping by CrossFit DownRiver, where high intensity fitness, personal instruction, weight & strength training meet!

CrossFit is, at its core, a strength and conditioning program for anyone looking to significantly improve their overall level of fitness and health. Here at CFDR (CrossFit Downriver) we advocate a constantly changing mix of aerobic exercise, gymnastics (body weight exercises), and classic weight lifting in 1 hour-long sessions. A normal class at our ‘box’ (community lingo for gym) typically include a warm-up, a skill development segment, the high-intensity “workout of the day” (or WOD), and a period of individual or group stretching.



Considering making a commitment in your overall health, strength, and well being this year?

Don’t wait! Stop in and let us show you around our great community!


  • My wife and I started at CrossFit Downriver over a year ago. Being a part of this community has changed my life in and out. I am stronger physically and more peaceful emotionally. I'm in better shape than I have ever been. The coaches here are professional and they genuinely care about your health and goals. Everything is instructed in a safe and proper form. The best part of this place is the people/community! When you're ready to throw in the towel, they're ready to pick it up and cheer you on. Seriously, we all motivate each other to push it farther far more than I would on my own and the evidence is in the results! Enough said, check them out.

  • This is my home away from home gym. I've been dropping in since 2014 when I'm in town visiting family. The coaches are always friendly, knowledgable and ready to help. Great programming! Super friendly and welcoming environment. Tons of space and toys. Highly recommend this box!!

Being a runner myself, the coaches have helped tailor my workouts to make me a stronger endurance athlete, as well as a faster runner. CrossFit will change your entire perception on what it means to be fit. CFDR has an amazing community of people who will welcome you and help you achieve your fitness goals!

  • Coach Kirk is by far exceptional at what he does when it comes to coaching/training an individual. He makes sure to know each members goals, concerns, weaknesses and strengths which gives the athlete/member quality training. He and the other coaches are constantly watching during the workouts and during skill work. When I started working out here, I had left another gym with a pretty serious injury. I told Coach Kirk about my injury and he has always been mindful of it when prescribing workouts and I cannot even explain how much I appreciate this. I also sustained a sprained ankle this year, (outside of the gym) with Coach Kirk having studied and received a degree in Exercise Science and many other certifications (outside of CF certificate) he was able to modify my workouts around my injury while working on mobility and strength in my ankle at the same time. The members here are welcoming, encouraging and cheer you on always. It is a great place to workout and it doesn't matter your skill level.

  • Dropped in here coming from Toledo on the way to the airport. I emailed the night before and got a prompt response, which I appreciated. The facility is amazing with about 6000 sq ft of space. They had high quality equipment and a nice waiting area. Kirk was extremely nice and welcoming. The class was only two others and me and everyone was super nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend dropping in here or just checking it out!!
