About Us

Our History

CrossFit Wichita was founded as Blackhawk Fitness in 2007 in the Commerce Street District of Wichita, Kansas. In 2010 we became Wichita Old Town Fitness eventually to be known as CrossFit Wichita. Different names and now different owners. One thing has never changed: we remain a fitness family. 

CrossFit is a fitness regimen that makes it possible to bridge the gap between endurance training and strength training. It promotes and combines: core strength, aerobic activity, and comprehensive total-body conditioning while encouraging simple clean nutrition practices. At CrossFit Wichita we strive to learn as many lifts, exercises, and exercise techniques as is necessary so as to be physically fit in all ways, and to be prepared for any type of movement, lift, or exercise.

Our diverse membership includes business professionals, blue-collar workers, students, stay-at-home moms, first responders, military members, and veterans. If you live in Wichita and you want to get in the best shape of your life, CrossFit Wichita is the place to be!
