Our Community

CrossFit Medford was started in 2011 by Dave and Kristen Miller, who fell in love with CrossFit in 2008. They had finished their athletic careers and jumped back into the normal gym routine. After becoming insanely bored with that, someone pointed them in the direction of CrossFit.com. Little did they know that their lives would change forever. They opened CrossFit Medford and it quickly became an extension of their family. They are proud of the welcoming environment that has been created by the people who make up the community at CrossFit Medford.

The group workouts and family environment is what drives him to keep coming back for more. After many months of exercise Steve learned that proper nutrition was missing from his plan.
