So Much More Than A Gym
CrossFit HighGear was founded by Heidi Bogue and Thomas Karos for the purpose of delivering a lifeshift experience. This community was birthed from the notion that optimal fitness leads to more than physical benefits. Rest assured that our responsible programming, attentiveness to each individual, and focus on mechanics, intensity and consistency will bring about the physical transformation you are looking for. We are fully equipped to present pure, straightforward, proven CrossFit programming, along with specialty classes, excellent coaching, and personal attention in an environment that is challenging yet fun and most definitely life-changing!
Undoubtedly, we are much more than a gym. CrossFit HighGear is a community that not only maximizes the ten components of fitness (endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, accuracy) but fuels the whole individual – mind, body and soul.
Our vision is to grow a healthy, outward centered, intentional community that extends beyond physical walls and impacts people of all walks of life – not only physically but also mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. CrossFit HighGear pursues serving the needs of a dynamic community with our core values of faith, authenticity, integrity, service, encouragement, collaboration, creativity, and consistent excellence in all aspects.
For Heidi, CrossFit was an essential catalyst in healing from several profound losses that occurred in a short period of time. The physical outlet of a consistent workout program with functional movements performed at high intensity allowed her to move through the stages of grief in a healthy manner. She found that this physical outlet connected her to a deeper faith. Her faith spurs her to give back, to help others find solutions to their problems, and to motivate others to live more fulfilling lives – which in turn, affect our bigger circle of relationships.
For Tom, CrossFit was a very natural transition from being a lifelong athlete. His discovery of it allowed him to be purposeful in his daily life. Being a three sport athlete in high school and a collegiate level athlete, competition was no stranger to him. Tom quickly jumped into CrossFit as a sport head first and qualified for the Central East regionals in 2013 and 2014. But the competitive aspect isn’t the most intriguing to Tom. He has learned that CrossFit serves as a tool to reach many people beyond the physical level. In three years of coaching, his largest passion is the success of his athletes, helping them accomplish their goals, and growing a community based on friendship, integrity and hard work.
We thrive on physical challenges, and even more, we get energized about training and guiding you through YOUR own wellness road map and achieving YOUR personal goals. We are strict on form, movement, standards, and safety. You will be coached at CrossFit HighGear: led by skilled, knowledgeable, experienced, high-level competitive CrossFit athletes. But beyond their own personal achievements, their credibility is dependent on making YOU a success story.
