Constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. This is Crossfit's definition and we apply it directly to our class programming. This is a Crossfit affiliate located in the big A-frame building on 73rd Street, right off of I-235.

The idea is to help suite your needs on a broad fitness level while keeping you on track with accountability and results.

Since I joined in November of 2017, CFWDM has made a world of difference in my life. I was 58, fat, lazy and on the couch every night after work. With their support, coaching and guidance, my strength is returning. the pounds are shedding and my outlook on life is vastly improved. From the Coaches to the Community, you cannot beat 'em! There's lots of "boxes" out there... I consider myself lucky to have landed here. I am now #58strong and getting stronger!! #crossfitwdm

I was in town for the weekend and decided to drop in for a workout. Kris was very helpful and made sure I felt welcome and comfortable with the exercises. I'll definitely look them up next time I'm in town.

I dropped into CrossFit West Des Moines while in town for business. I loved the coaches, the programming, and the people. I do CF 5-6 times a week yet I’m super sore after the excellent strength workouts and WODs I did here. Highly recommended.

I am not even sure where to begin. I have always been tempted for many years to try crossfit, too scared to take the plunge knowing I would probably get addicted and would have an expensive habit. After taking a couple weeks off for an overseas vacation, I decided it was time to step outside of my "box" and try something new. I started looking online for crossfit gyms in Des Moines and just by looking online I already felt drawn to Crossfit West Des Moines. After meeting Kris and Jess for the first time, I was in awe of their enthusiasm and flexibility to make things work for me. They were just starting as the new owners of the box, but I could not tell. Things ran smoothly without any mishaps. Starting out, they helped me enormously - whether it was learning the new lingo, figuring out a good weight for my barbell, or helping me with completely new movements, they were always willing to go the extra mile to make me feel comfortable, safe and modify as needed. I can't say enough about these two and their gym. I have truly fallen in love with both. I did get addicted and I don't regret it for one second. I look forward to that hour of my day I get to spend with them, their gym and other members. I truly am grateful for everything they have done and would highly recommend others to come try it out. Everything can be modified to your level of activity and Kris and Jess will make sure you feel comfortable with what you are doing without making anyone feel disheartened or afraid. I feel like I found a second home and family at Crossfit WDM. I promise you won't regret your decision to spend a day, week, month or year/s here :)

Every time I’m in the Des Moines area I go to Crossfit West Des Moines. Super friendly people and they have solid workouts. Even if you’re dropping in they still work with you on form and help you have a solid workout. They offer a one week pass for $40 which is great when you’re in town for more than a couple days.

CrossFit West Des Moines Q&A

CrossFit West Des Moines Q&A

How do you help your clients achieve their fitness goals?

I'll convince you that it's worth it. Nobody has the "perfect" solution that makes a lifestyle change EASY. It'll be hard, but what you'll find out is that it's extremely rewarding. I'll throw multiple training styles at you to produce results... from CrossFit, to HIIT (high intensity interval training), to Powerlifting and Bodybuilding methods, even several Mobility sessions to increase your full ROM (range of motion).
Paired with a fine tuning of your diet as we make small progressions on our way into a healthier lifestyle. This is equally as hard as the training so the accountability doesn't stop at the fitness portion.

What’s the secret to getting the body of your dreams?

Expected answer: Stay active, eat healthy, sleep well.
My answer: Consistency. I'll provide the blueprint, but if you allow your subconscious mind to fool you into creating excuses time and time again... you'll fail. It takes the power to not only create a plan, but to follow through with it.
The sky is the limit, but you have to want it bad enough. I'm going to remind you that there are going to be days where life gets in the way, or you just aren't motivated to do it - and then I'll show you why it's so important to show up.

What do you love most about your job?

Helping people realize that there is so much potential that has to be discovered through hard work. Seeing the look on their faces when they conquer a mountain; or better put, a goal that once seemed so far out of their reach that they truly believed they would never reach it. I want to promote and create habits of being healthy and active.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I've been in Sport and Fitness my entire life. When I jumped way out of my comfort zone to become a CrossFit Trainer, I quickly realized that the connection I was able to have with my Athletes was helping them become more fit, more inspired, and just happier. So, I did what any crazy man would do and forfeited the benefits of a corporate company and began developing my coaching style and knowledge base in the practice of a CrossFit Affiliate. Soon after that I became the owner of that same affiliate and have kept the pattern alive. Study, practice, repeat. The more I know and am able to communicate that information to my athletes, the happier and more fit they become.

Why should our clients choose you?

This is all I do. This is all I think about. With my background as a dedicated and active athlete my entire life... I know what the emotional highs and lows are that come with training. I picked up bodybuilding when I was 21 and went from weighing 170# and benching 150#, to 240# and benching 415#. As "meathead" as that sounds... that takes a lot of trial and error with training and dieting to do it. After finding CrossFit in 2015, I realized there's a lot more to fitness than lifting weights so I've increased my cardio, engine, mobility, core strength, and... even my overall pound for pound weightlifting strength!
I'll be able to provide technique, diet, and effective training to produce some unreal results.
