Who is CrossFit Renaissance? 

CrossFit Renaissance is a 6,000 sq/ft. fitness facility with parking and a designated kid’s area, located in Port Richmond, Philadelphia. We offer group and private coaching for every level of fitness utilizing the CrossFit methodology.

What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a comprehensive strength and conditioning program that is effective for any committed individual, regardless of age, gender, or experience. Workouts are comprised of constantly varied functional movements (like pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting, running) executed at high intensity. We use the same program for everyone, from elite athletes to middle aged house wives and grandparents. The program is scaled to match the individual’s needs and abilities. At CrossFit Renaissance, you are all athletes in training.

What We Do

Constantly Varied, Functional Movements, Performed at High Intensity.

Each day we perform a different WORKOUT OF THE DAY (WOD). Variety is the key. Routine is the enemy. We keep the body guessing so that it never fully adapts to the demands of our exercise program, and athletes can expect fitness to improve for years.

We perform a wide range of functional, full body movements. We perform only functional movements because they are the BEST! They work the most muscles, burn the most calories, and most importantly, they work the body as a unit. Functional movements improve quality of life by teaching the body to move efficiently and effectively, preparing the body for life’s daily rigors. These movements have withstood the test of time and guarantee results!

Each WOD is performed at high intensity relative to the individual’s ability. Why? Because high-intensity training is the only way to get GREAT results. No athlete has ever achieved greatness without training with intensity. These workouts will build more muscle, burn more fat, and improve overall fitness better than any workout program you have ever tried.

Who We Serve

Our members come from all walks of life. We have people here who were already great athletes before coming in and those who never trained a day in their life. Your starting point is irrelevant. We’re not concerned with where you are now but where you’re going.

CrossFit Renaissance is for you if you’re:

  • Committed to losing weight or getting in shape.
  • No longer seeing results with your current training regimen.
  • Willing to push to your limits, both physically and mentally.
  • Have lost interest in your gym routine or get bored with your workouts.

Our Philosophy

There are no magic pills or effortless machines that will get you where you want to be. Like anything else worth having; it will take hard work and dedication to reach your goals. We will help you do this and show you the correct way to get there in a safe and effective program. CrossFit simply is one of the best overall training programs there is and whatever results you are after, we can help get you there.

You provide the will and we’ll provide the way.


Where did the name “Renaissance” come from?

A renaissance man is defined as a person who is skilled in multiple fields or multiple disciplines, and who has a broad base of knowledge. In CrossFit we aim to be renaissance men and women of fitness. We want to do it all and do it all well. We want to be prepared for the unknown and the unknowable.


Don’t worry about your current fitness level, we’ll meet you right where you are!

We were one of Philadelphia’s first CrossFit gyms – opening in 2009 -, also one of the largest at 6,000 sq ft, so space is never an issue here. Our coaches have been working in the fitness industry since 1995. There’s not a type of client we haven’t trained during that time, from seniors in their 70s, members who have lost 150+ pounds, weekend warriors, professional athletes, and everyone in between.
