ABOUT US

Reebok CrossFit Nürnberg is a World-Class fully-equipped CrossFit Box located at Lenkersheimer Strasse 10a, 90431 Nürnberg. Our 750 square-meter facility provides an enviable amount of space to offer CrossFit’s broad yet inclusive training program, suitable for any level of fitness.

We are ideally situated in Stadtteile Nürnberg Hoefen. As Nürnberg Direkt explains, “Hoefen is characterized by its friendly residential development, international residents, and bustling traffic. It is the final characterization which garners excellent public transportation opportunities.” Indeed. You will have no problem reaching us in mere minutes whether you are traveling via private automobile (we are just a few minutes from A73 or A3) or with public transportation. Nürnberg Crossfit is just 150 meters from the Lenkersheimer Strasse Haltestelle (bus 38/39).

Unter http://www.vgn.de können Sie Ihren Fahrplan erstellen, or may we heartily recommend Deutsche Bahn’s DB Navigator, a free app for those with iphone, ipad, android, or Windows Phone 7.

Reebok CrossFit Nürnberg is conveniently “sandwiched” 1500m from Real-Geschäfte on Virnsberger Straße, 900m from the big OBI Markt on Sigmundstrasse, 10m from Schepis Discount (Italian Feinkost plus Cafe), and 310m from the Hoefener Garten Landgasthof Steakhaus und Biergärten.

Our program is based on CrossFit methodology. This means we do constantly varied, functional movements (like squats and push-ups) at a high-intensity. The functional movements we will teach you are safe, organic in nature, innate to our DNA, and essential to our quality of life. Not only CAN grandmothers perform functional movements, grandmothers MUST perform functional movements to halt loss of functionality and improve quality of life. We train for longevity, we train for health and most of all, we train for fun.

In our gym, we have pull-up bars, ropes and rings. We have free weights, kettle bells, and strong-man equipment. We have rowing machines and jump ropes. Most importantly, we have a community of athletes of all abilities led by internationally renowned CrossFit coaches who teach movements, coach form and inspire athletes in 9 regularly scheduled group workouts daily.

Remember when running, jumping, somersaulting, and playing on the jungle gym was fun? If you can’t remember when you last enjoyed sport, we will help you recapture that fun – we will increase your bone density and define your muscle mass and most importantly we will halt your descent into infirmary and sickness. We make you stronger at everything you want to do and more importantly, protect you from injury not just while performing CrossFit, but also performing every sport you love. Give us your goals and we will help you achieve them in record time – guaranteed.

THE STORY

Drake was born in Chicago, Illinois and joined the US Army when he was 18 years old. Ginger was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. Drake met Ginger on the beach on the North Shore of Hawaii and they shared fitness as a common interest, competing in local fitness competitions together as well as more challenging feats of endurance like Ironman and Ultramarathon run- and bike-courses. Neither Drake nor Ginger had much interest in strength training. Both firmly believed and enthusiastically propagated the jargon that cardio was the only way to fitness.

After Drake was introduced to CrossFit during his 2004 deployment in Afghanistan by a friend with Special Forces, he was sold by its speed in strength and conditioning development, regardless of the starting point and background of an athlete. He was alarmed by the fact his soldiers were dangerously deficient in functional strength (their ability to move large loads over long distances quickly), which was an absolute criticality given their location and line of work. Drake vigorously applied CrossFit’s physical fitness methodologies to the daily training of medics he managed who were responsible for supporting paratroopers of the 173d Airborne Brigade.

The difference in fitness levels grew astonishing between Drake’s soldiers and others in the Brigade. Since that time, Drake administered CrossFit workouts to all who fell under his supervision during physical training. He has no doubt, and actual confirmation from numerous first-hand reports, that this training methodology resulted in a significant number of lives saved.

Ginger decided to try CrossFit during Drake’s second 15-month deployment to Afghanistan, 4 weeks following the birth of their first son. She was relieved to find such an effective regimen which she could scale to her ability as well as squeeze into tiny minutes of free time during their son’s naps, using the limited amount of weight equipment they had at home. CrossFit also supplied a completely unexpected fringe-benefit: Drake and Ginger believe that completing and comparing CrossFit daily workouts “together” helped them stay closer and connected during the long deployment. For Ginger (and Drake especially), the variety in CrossFit programming provided welcome relief to monotonies of daily life.

Drake and Ginger founded CrossFit Landstuhl in December of 2009 and successfully ran the non-profit affiliate in their free time until June of 2011. Drake retired in August 2011 from the U.S. Army so that he and Ginger could open Reebok Crossfit Nurenburg (RCFN).

After hours of endurance training and racing, Drake and Ginger found that the safest, the quickest, and the most reliable route to fitness and good health is using the CrossFit methodology. They are very passionate about assisting others through their own personal CrossFit journeys, and to independence through strength by virtue of the same paradigm. CrossFit is not just a workout – it is a way of life. Drake and Ginger’s primary goals are to help RCFN members once again experience simple joy in sport, and to show them that time saved can be used to enjoy life, friends, and family. They couldn’t be happier nor feel any luckier about living and coaching CrossFit in Germany!
