CrossFit Zachary is more than just a great place to get into the best shape of your life. We are a community that welcomes new friends every day. We hang out and get to know one another not just in the gym, but we come together for special events and casual gatherings, in and out of the gym. Every member is invited and more information on up-and-coming events will be communicated well in advance. Feel free to ask a coach if you have any questions about an event and we look forward to hanging out with you!
