We offer group CrossFit classes 6 days a week. We take pride in offering a friendly and supportive atmosphere with the highest quality coaching.
The goal of the Burner Classes is threefold:
1) Help people in a rush or at peak times looking to get a quick (but very effective) workout in.
2) Help beginners have a viable option for something less form intensive / difficult from the capability standpoint and allow them to focus on pushing hard in a heart-rate intensive conditioning workout.
3) Provide an avenue for people without CF experience to join in and try-out a class with a friend.
At Friendship Barbell we are devoted to teaching and sharing our passion for the sport of Weightlifting.
Our hands-on coaching and detailed programming focus on developing technical consistency for the Snatch and Clean and Jerk.
Pairing mechanics with plenty of Pulling, Pressing, and Squatting allows our athletes realize their potential and reach their goals.

Friendship CrossFit has sent 4 teams to Regionals and qualified 7 individual regional competitors since 2011. In 2016 Friendship made a push in their competitive programming, and began offering extra work that was designed for anyone with a solid fundamental base to participate.
We now host a vast team of developmental athletes that work hand-in-hand with Jeff Binek daily to improve and many saw themselves jump 200-1000 places in their open finish from 2015.
We are the current reigning "Fittest Team in Ohio", took 6th place in the Central Regional, Jenny Borda is the reigning "Fittest Woman in Ohio" and teammates Maria Dyas and Kristen Christman are 3rd and 7th respectively.

Friendship CrossFit Teens is a method for teaching CrossFit to kids ages 13-18.
Studies show that coordination, balance and strength are the most commonly lost components through adolescence. We work hard to ensure that Teens are first taught proper mechanics for all exercise components, weightlifting and gymnastics alike. Once they establish good mechanics, and an understanding of the movement, we then build consistency.
Once the coach feels the athlete can move safely, then we can add intensity. It is this degree of physical literacy that will most drastically enhance sports performance and result in fewer injuries through these difficult years.
Exercise is also beneficial to cognitive function and our teens have recognized that increased physical capacity results in increased academic achievement.
