CrossFit Mile Zero opened our doors in 2014 with one goal in mind – building better humans. Young, old, beginner, elite, recreational outdoor enthusiast, stay-at-home parent, Duval Street connoisseur…you name it, we have it.
We believe that consistency yields results and strive to do the common, uncommonly well. CrossFit Mile Zero is more than a gym. Our CrossFit and Bootcamp programs focus on technique above weight and intensity, meeting our members where they join us on their fitness journey.
With hundreds of members, you aren’t alone. We look forward to building our body physically and mentally. Embracing our challenges and accomplishing things previously unimaginable together.
Don’t take our word for it. Come see for yourself how we’re changing Key West one person at a time.
We cover a lot in class and utilize every minute. No, we won’t lock the doors five minutes after class starts; however, if you’re late, please assimilate into class by mimicking what you see going on!
Please check your ego at the door, it’s likely to get trounced if you don’t; no one cares how much you can lift, we only care how well you can lift it. The coaches are there to help you improve now and long into the future.
Please introduce yourself to all newcomers (or someone you don’t recognize). Remember when you were the new guy or gal? A friendly introduction goes a long way. Plus, they may need to revive your unconscious body later on and “hey dude” is so impersonal.
At CrossFit Mile Zero, no one breaks down their equipment until everyone has finished the workout. This is a common courtesy that you too will one day benefit from as everyone is last in the workout someday. You can cheer on others, grab a foam roller, or just sit and enjoy the down time, but don’t touch your equipment.
Yes, we know you’re cool and we know how empowering it is to drop a barbell from overhead. You know what’s not empowering? When you barbell drops to the floor and dances into someone else’s shin injuring them for weeks. Not sure what ghost-riding looks like? Ask your coach next time in class.
Would you drop your baby from two feet above the ground? We certainly hope not. We use an empty barbell a lot in class for drill and form work. When putting the barbell down, gently place in on the ground with the utmost care and admiration for the fine piece of equipment that is a barbell.
The shop is not your oyster, it’s many people’s oyster. If you set up on one pull-up bar, don’t take someone else’s bar just because they’re not there. If your wallball is further away from the rest of your equipment than you would like, well then, run to the wallball, don’t use someone else’s just because it’s closer.
You have to clean-up after yourself. It’s your responsbility to get out and put away your equipment, count your own reps, get your own tissue, and clean off your bars. Plus, by carrying those huge Rogue boxes all the way across the shop you’ll gain a lot of fitness.
Headphones are for the big box gym and lead to eye contact avoidance and individuals living in their own world. At CrossFit Mile Zero, we like to talk, connect, and suffer together. Sure, you may not like the music, but if you’re working out hard enough, that shouldn’t be on your mind.
Children who can sit on the couch or at the white desk while their parents workout are welcome to come to the shop with Mom or Dad. They are not allowed at any point to come onto the shop floor or training area. Sure we like kids, we even have one; however, the safety of the children and quality of the athletes’ training environment demands this arrangement.
Every athlete pushes themselves in a different way. You can scream, cuss, cry, go to your happy place, bleed, or even rest…just don’t quit. The human body is capable of more than you can possibly comprehend; challenge it accordingly.
