In the heart of downtown Ft. Lauderdale (in the Art District) is CrossFit Ft. Lauderdale – The Playground Gym a division of CrossFit. I have seen this gym with my own eyes, and it is true. This is the largest gym in South Florida measuring a whopping 6,000 sq. feet! But this is no average gym. There are no Nautilus machines here! There aren’t mirrors all over the place, for those who are only there to watch themselves and others workout.

The gym itself is a giant warehouse equipped with exactly what you need for an intense workout. Olympic style weights are everywhere, loads of rowing machines, kettlebells, medicine balls along with ropes hanging from all over the gym, to climb for serious core training.

So what is CrossFit? CrossFit is an intense weightlifting/gymnastic/metabolic training program designed for athletes of all fitness levels and for all ages. “All of our athletes do the same WOD (work out of the day)” says one of the partners Michael King, “the only thing that varies is the weight load and intensity”. “We have grandmothers and professional athletes doing the same exact workout.”

The Playground’s clientele consists of beginners (regular people, stay at home housewives, elderly, teens, etc), Professional Athletes (NFL, MLB, Volleyball, Tennis, etc), Cage Fighters, High SchoolTeams(Baseball, Football, Track, etc), Law Enforcement Officials, Fire Fighters, Military, and more. The Playground will be your home for extreme workouts and supreme results. Private, Semi Private, and Group Sessions available to everyone looking to change their lives for ever.

The Playground Gym guarantees results if the workouts and nutrition guidelines are followed. And with over 20 certifications (CrossFit, Kettlebell, Olympic Weightlifting, and more) you can trust that these guys will help you get the results they guarantee.

The workout class schedule is very convenient for all. Monday – Friday the schedule is 7 AM, 8 AM, 9 AM & 10 AM. They resume in the afternoon at 4:30 PM, 5:30 PM & 6:30 PM. There is even a Saturday morning 9 AM class. All classes are semi private with 4-20 people attending. Private sessions are also available for those interested in a special program.

For your convenience there is also a Davie location – CrossFit Affliction.

All members are welcome to use either CrossFit facility to train.
