Crossfit

So what is CrossFit? Is it a place...is it a type of gym...is it a style of fitness? The short answer is that CrossFit is a fitness methodology. It can be defined as constantly varied functional movements performed at a high intensity. This means that each CrossFit workout is unique, they all utilize full body movements, and they are done with maximum intensity.

CrossFit uses any combination of gymnastic (pull ups, rings, handstand push ups, etc), cardiovascular (rowing, running, etc), and weightlifting (power, olympic, kettle bell, etc) movements to form workouts. This provides an incredibly holistic fitness program.

When attending a CrossFit Dūrātus class you can expect a thorough warm-up, quality fitness instruction and coaching, and a challenging workout. Each class is designed to be 1 hour in length.

Because every workout can be scaled to different individuals' abilities--CrossFit really is for anyone and everyone.

Kevin Longmeier - Owner/Head Coach

Opening a gym has been a dream of mine since my "heavy bench" days in high school. In between that time and now, I married the woman of my dreams, fathered 3 incredible boys (all with that woman), and have grown a deep passion for the outdoors. 5 years ago a trusted friend (and fellow affiliate owner-CrossFit Spokane Valley) introduced me to CrossFit's methodology of fitness. I was immediately drawn in.

What I love most about CrossFit is that it is more than just fitness. It's a community. It's functional movement. It's whole life change. I have experienced each of these and hope that I can help others have the same experience.

Throughout my high school career, I had never gotten into the sports atmosphere. After a torn ACL my 8th grade year, my mom drug me to a crossfit workout that she had been doing for about a year. I instantly fell in love, despite my noodle arms and incapability to lift the empty barbell over my head. At age 17, I obtained my L1 certification, while recovering after my second ACL and MCL surgery, and started co-coaching the beginners class at CVCF, and graduated from Chelan High School in 2014. Currently, I am working towards my business degree at Eastern Washington University, and am so blessed that I joined the wonderful community and staff at Crossfit Duratus. Coaching has been a dream of mine since I fell in love with the sport, and am incredibly thankful I get to do it with this amazing group of people here in Spokane.

I am a wife to a wonderful man and we have three fun little girls together. I was a collegiate volleyball player, worked for an organization called Young Life and am now a stay at home mom.  I have experienced competing at the highest level of intensity and fitness (dedicating hours upon hours to strength and conditioning).  On the other side, I’ve been on bed rest with all three of my pregnancies and know what it’s like to try to get back in shape with little ones running around.

I love that CrossFit is for anyone.  You can take any workout and make it hard enough to challenge the fittest person in the gym and scale it back for someone who has never attempted a pull-up or push-up.  As a coach, I love watching someone realize that they can do something they didn’t think they could do. I truly believe in the core values and mission of CrossFit Dūrātus and I’m excited to be a part of it.

My introduction to Crossfit started 4 years ago with everyones favorite workout, Fran, after just barely surviving I was hooked. Coming from a competitive sporting background I naturally had a desire to compete at something, I found that outlet in the sport of Crossfit. After learning more about what the sport actually means I became an even firmer believer, while being competitive and succeeding is a main goal general fitness and health is at the base of what Crossfit is. Being healthy, active and mobile are things that I plan to carry throughout my life and hope to instill in those who I coach. I share my fitness with my wife and would like to contribute a healthy portion of the relationship we are able maintain to being in the gym and this sport.

Being a coach is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done, seeing the members of the gym change in all aspects of their life is huge. More than anything I love the community that is associated with a gym, we all share each others failures and successes, every member allows each coach to be an agent of change in their life.

I have always looked for ways to challenge myself both mentally and physically. Whether the challenge came from high school sports like lacrosse, or ultra-marathons I made it my goal to push my limits. I first heard about CrossFit in 2011. As I watched a rerun of the 2010 CrossFit Games on TV I knew I had found the challenge that I was looking for. After a 3 year stint of trying to do CrossFit on my own I found myself 2000 miles away from my hometown of Troy, Michigan and as luck would have I found CrossFit Duratus. I received my CF-L1 in October of 2014, after about a year of working out at Duratus, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this amazing community. It is my goal to help others realize their optimal physical fitness through CrossFit.
