When Tyler Stone and Derek Miller found the right location for their new CrossFit training center, they didn’t waste any time in rolling up their sleeves and working to get CrossFit Erosion open for business. They converted the former Webb Shoe Building at 315 S. Main St. into an operating CrossFit gym in less than four weeks and have been hosting workouts there since July 1. “We really love the vibe downtown,” Tyler said.
CrossFit classes can include everything from traditional weight lifting, jumping rope, running, bicycling, throwing, gymnastics, and more. Tyler explained that the goal of CrossFit Erosion is to make a healthy lifestyle fun and accessible for anyone willing to put in the work. “We chose the name CrossFit Erosion because the principles of erosion require consistency over a long period of time. We don’t sell any short fixes or quick weight loss.” He added, “What we’re focused on is CrossFit training as a mode for getting fit, not for competing, so all the classes we do are scalable to your level of fitness. We want to share the gift of a healthy lifestyle with as many people as possible.”
Members pay $135 a month and can participate in any of the classes that Tyler and Derek lead at various times throughout the week as well as open gym on Sundays. Tyler said the benefit of having these coached classes is that no one has to come in and feel out of place or like they are doing the workouts incorrectly. “That’s what we’re here for.” // — JENNY ROTH
