Our mission here at P6 CrossFit is to ensure that every one of our members are ready for whatever life throws their way. Whether that be the 80 year old Grandmother that doesn’t want to worry about falling and not being able to get up, too the kids at any of the local schools, the diabetic that needs help reversing that diagnosis, too the competitor that is looking to compete in fitness competitions, the person that has always struggled to lose fat and keep it off with all the FAD diets, or the person that has always struggled to put on muscle. Here a P6 CrossFit we have an extremely wide variety of members that make up our community and chances are you probably know at least one of them. They may be your doctor, your lawyer, your electrician, your plumber, your nurse, your teacher, your children’s teacher, your landscaper, or the waitress that served you dinner last Friday night, any and every one can do this, as long as they have the drive to want to better themselves in a more healthy manner.
Our programming at P6 allows you to see fitness in a whole new way! Our training methods provide results for all levels of fitness; from children to elite athletes, and everyone in between. Our workouts, at P6 CrossFit, are designed to improve each member’s general physical preparedness. That means members will see significant improvements in mobility, speed, strength, and coordination over time by following our programming.
CrossFit has put a definition to fitness – increase work capacity across broad times and modal domains. We accomplish this by performing constantly varied, functional movements at high intensity. Our workouts will never change from this approach. Some workouts will take you 4 minutes and others will take you 40 minutes. Some workouts will use heavy weights (but will be scaled to meet your personal ability) and others will use no weights. Some days we might lift before our workout, some days we row, bike, or run, and some days we practice handstands or work on rope climbs. We want to be good at everything, not great at just one thing.
Chances are if you are checking us out you have already identified some of the pitfalls of other training programs and globogyms that say they provide their clients with improved fitness but understand that if you are only paying a minimal membership you won’t hold yourself accountable. We aren’t a normal gym because normal gyms don’t promote REAL fitness. Fitness isn’t just about how you look or how many miles you can run. Fitness encompasses much more. It carries over to how you work, play, eat, and live your life.
We view our training program as a method of improving and reinforcing important character traits. Some of these traits include confidence, discipline, courage, honesty, dedication, and perseverance. Chances are our workout will be the toughest thing you do all day. People leave our gym feeling as though they have already conquered the world. What we do can directly improve a person’s outlook on their day-to-day routine. We see people every day reduce their stress and anxiety as well as gain more energy to be able to accomplish whatever life throws at them. The BEST part is that real fitness is accessible to everyone regardless of age or athletic background and/or ability. There is no shortcut, to living and a better HEALTHIER life, besides hard work, and that is all we will ever ask out of our members.
CrossFit will help you reach your goals, nutrition will help you reach your goals, but the two together are unparalleled when it comes to meeting and exceeding those goals.
Imagine this, everything you put in your body is either going too positively, or negatively impact your health, mood, sleep, and ability to achieve your desired health and fitness goals. Unlike most gyms, our staff and coaches are extremely knowledgeable when it comes to diet and nutrition. Nutrition is so important to us that it is actually the first lecture provided when going through your introductory classes. Our nutrition plan is easy to follow and is founded on the principle of real food = real results. Our goal isn’t to have you cut out all of the foods you enjoy, but we will work with you on gradually living a healthier lifestyle that will support you and everything you do for years to come.
This is the short version: One September morning, the 9-11 tragedies happened. My best friend and I decided that it was our duty to do our part to protect the freedoms that we barely knew anything about. The last time I was blown up while deployed to Iraq, I was hit in the head with a piece of shrapnel. I lost all memory from before that point, and I still have no visual memory to this day. I was discharged from the military and had to figure out how to move forward. I have now been out of the military since 2007 and have found ways to work around these things, to where most people I meet, don’t even notice anything is different. Because of the traumatic brain injury I suffered, I have had an MRI on my brain, yearly since the incident. In June of 2015 I received a call from a VA neuro surgeon telling me that my scar tissue had grown and that he believed it was a brain tumor. He requested that I come in immediately to have it removed. I honestly believed it was still just scar tissue and they were overreacting. Man was I wrong. After multiple types of MRI’s proving that it was a tumor, I went in to have it surgically removed. Turns out, it is an incurable type of brain cancer that is supposed to come back (but more on that later). So I went through months of Chemo and daily radiation treatments. During that time I felt pretty terrible, so I ate A LOT. Not only did I eat a lot, but I ate a lot of pure junk food which lead to me weighting over 250lbs, I knew it was time to stop feeling sorry for myself, and that I needed to get up, get back in shape. I feel like everything I learned about diet, fitness, and lifestyle will not only delay the return of the cancer, but I honestly don’t think it’s coming back at all (I’m an optimist though). I had always (even before the military) wanted to get into buying houses, fixing them up, and selling/renting them. I figured there no time life the present, and pulled the trigger on that dream. The process of taking something that needs work, and making it the best it can be, is a passion of mine that now translates directly into being the Owner of P6 CrossFit. I know it sounds cheesy, but once you get told that you have cancer, everything in life suddenly has more purpose and you realize that tomorrow isn’t promised. You realize that you have a limited amount of time to fulfill your potential and do what makes you happy. Helping others live better lives is what makes me happy. P6 CrossFit has been my opportunity to help more people in a shorter amount of time than anything I have ever done. I am able to help others reach and exceed their goals on a daily basis. I get to see people come into the gym intimidated, with low self-esteem, and watch them transform into extremely confident and proud individuals.
My name is T.J. Williams and I am a husband and father. I am currently the Senior Assistant Golf Course Superintendent at the Farm Golf Club where I have been working for the past 7 years. I started CrossFit because I was getting bored with the same bland routine of a traditional gym. I had a friend that had just started coaching and he talked me into trying it. I was hooked from the word go. I always enjoyed competing growing up as I played almost every ball sport you could. CrossFit brought back that competitive drive I was missing. After several years of doing CrossFit, I began wanting to help people on their CrossFit journey so I obtained my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate. I enjoy helping people achieve things they never thought they would be able to accomplish. Seeing people conquer fears and experiencing that “light bulb coming on moment” is rewarding to me. One piece of advice I would give to anyone whether they are new to CrossFit or have been doing it for years would be to enjoy the CHASE of mastering the movements.
I was born and raised here in Lafayette, where I started CrossFit a little over three years ago. I participated in athletics throughout high school, and have continued to compete while in college pursuing a career as a Nurse Practitioner. CrossFit has changed my life. It has given me a competitive edge, provided me with another platform to test my fitness, increased my quality of life, and connected me with my second family here at P6 CrossFit. With the help and encouragement of our members and coaching staff, I have had the pleasure of becoming a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer. Through coaching, my goal is to impact and improve the quality of life of the athletes I meet, whether they are beginners, or elite.
Hey y’all! I’m an Oklahoma native, and in the midst of my travels I found this little gem of a state and the rest is history. I have been here for 4 years and I never grow tired of all the things to do outdoors. My husband, Devan, and I have a dog named Abby and we both work in the school system as educators! My favorite workout is “DT” because I love lifting weights. You will most likely catch me around the 5am and 4pm classes, and I can’t wait to see you around the gym!
My name is Travis Cleverley and I am a 41 year old father of two young men, 24 and 21, a grandfather to a beautiful little girl named Anniston, and soon to be married with an 11 year old young man. I am a 17 year Army Veteran with deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and currently serving in the Army Reserves in Chattanooga, TN. I started my CrossFit journey around four years ago to better my health and fitness for my family and my military career. Since I have to meet the standards of the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) and meet the requirements of the Height/Weight program to remain in the Reserves until retirement, I figured CrossFit would be a well-rounded regimen to balance both life and fitness. I found a passion for exceeding my personal goals and helping others achieve theirs. I attended the CF-L1 certification course in January 2019 so that I could invest in myself, the CrossFit community, and be more proficient in my coaching ability. I enjoy helping current members achieve both short term and long terms goals as well as meeting and helping new members ring the “PR” bell!
Hey there, my name is Robert Sluder. I have been lucky enough to do CrossFit for about the last 6 years and have been coaching for about the last 3 years. I recently earned my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate in Cookeville, TN (No I didn’t get to meet Rich). CrossFit is a passion of mine and coaching CrossFit is something I really enjoy. I am also a proud father of 3 girls.
