Depot Fitness family
Their Director of Marketing & Operations Steph Lo got into the fitness industry when she fell in love with CrossFit and had the passion to help people live a healthier and happier life. She gets to do just that working for Depot Fitness. She explains that seeing one of their members get their first pull-up or set a new personal record (PA) never gets old.
What separates Depot Fitness from other gyms is their inclusive community. Steph said that often, people skip trying out CrossFit because they compare themselves with the CrossFit athletes they see in television. Depot Fitness celebrates individuality and wants everyone to feel welcome. They believe that fitness should be accessible to everyone. Because of this, they cost $5 community classes, bring a friend(for free) days, and their Depot Pride workout where they celebrate their LGBTQ+ athletes and allies.
During Depot Fitness Pride Workout
One big mistake Depot Fitness sees people making is when they let their ego come in the way of their workouts. Steph said that CrossFit classes are undoubtedly a competitive environment. People would normally push themselves too hard to be the fastest, heaviest lifting athlete for the class. To fix this mistake, they always remind their members to perform at their best but with safety in mind. Telling them that form should always come before speed.
Depot Fitness believes in the benefits of CrossFit training and emphasizes on an athletes well-being.
