"Iron Sharpens Iron" will give you the opportunity to grow physically and spiritually. You will lift and train with some of the country's top coaches and speakers. You will learn how your faith can bring renewed purpose to your athletic performance, profession and relationships, and guide you in the direction God desires for your life.
Skill/workout sessions will expose you to instruction and analysis in all three elements of movement: gymnastics, weightlifting and monostructural. We will practically reinforce these elements through a series of workouts spread across both anaerobic and aerobic time domains with the opportunity to set personal bests in an inspirational and competitive environment. You can expect to get thoroughly tested in all aspects of fitness and receive game changing coaching aimed at continuing to build technique for a lifetime.
You will also learn from other athletes and grow together as a community throughout the 3-day event. You will walk away from the weekend with a copy of the Athlete New Testament, a Faith Rx'd T-shirt and wristband, and hopefully a new outlook on how to make Christ a central part of your training and life. Join us for this first of its kind, unforgettable event!

Do I have to be an “elite” athlete, box owner or coach to participate?
No. Whatever profession or direction you scale workouts, you will leave a better CrossFit athlete, and with a more clear vision of how to carry out your faith.
How many will be able to attend?
We cap at 50.
Do I have to be a Christian to attend?
No, we welcome and encourage everyone to attend. There will be high level coaching as well as opportunities to grow in your faith and ask questions. Each event will include a clear presentation of the Christian gospel and many opportunities to hear from the staff about their passion for Jesus Christ.
How do I request to host an Iron Sharpens Iron event at my box?
