You Must Crawl Before You Run...


This program is for the individual that wants to ramp up into our fast paced group fitness classes. This class will meet 3 days a week, with a limited class size. Foundations will meet on Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30pm and Saturday at 8am. There is also a 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. Movement curriculum is sequential and attendance to all sessions is fundamental to your gaining the necessary proficiency and preparation before entering normal class times.



Take a deeper look into nutrution


Nutrition is an emotional and mental tug of war for most people, we get it. This is why we have dialed the "Aether Shred" process into an extremely effective 8 week cycle. We start you with a custom 7 day meal plan and educate you on our philosophy of nutrition, muscle gain and weight loss. We then guide you with weekly weigh ins and advice on how to keep up with weight loss, through the whole 8 week cycle, while maintaining optimal health and strength levels. The program allows flexibility and constant online communication so whenever you get confused or off track we can get you right back where you need to be. 



The Aether Barbell Club. 

Taking strength and power to another level.

We have everything you need to become the best Olympic Weightlifter you can be. We have had the joy of being a part of producing some pretty amazing athletes including numerous American Open contenders and 2 state champs. Our athletes receive comprehensive programming and coaching to keep them growing in the sport. This is a completely separate programming from our CrossFit classes and must be tested into or at least have a foundation of CrossFit, Strength Training or Olympic Lifting.
