CrossFit in Grand Rapids, MI


We are 100% devoted to helping you. We understand that everyone comes to the gym for different reasons and with different goals in mind. Regardless of what brings you through the door, we will work tirelessly to help you find what you’re looking for.

For many people the competitive nature of CrossFit makes this a fun and challenging program to be a part of. However, for many others that competitive nature makes CrossFit extremely intimidating and prevents many people from ever walking through the door to check it out. We don’t want that to be the case. In fact, we work really hard to tear down any barriers that could prevent people from getting involved and experiencing what we have to offer.

If you’re not competitive, no worries, you’ll be in good company as there are several others just like you. If you are competitive, great, come on in. There will always be someone here for you to compete with.

The bottom line is, if you have fitness goals you want to achieve and you’re a good person who likes other people, this is the place for you.

Philosophy - Our philosophy is quite simple really. We believe that health, fitness, and community are critical components of a balanced, happy, and healthy life. We believe that fitness should be more about health, performance, and functional development, not purely about aesthetics.

"Appearance is a consequence of fitness."
- Mark Twight

Mission Statement - To transform lives through fitness and community.

Goals - Our goals are...

×

Fitness - Fitness should be fun, effective, and functional. If you’re not enjoying your fitness program or seeing results, do something else. For best results, get fit early and stay fit through out your life. Here's a video for a little inspirations

Health - Eat clean food as often as you can. Only eat what you need to support your level of activity. Avoid medications if possible. Become and stay mobile.

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense.

Regularly learn and play new sports. - Greg Glassman

Life - Life should be about collecting experiences, not things. Sell your crap. Pay off your debt. Do what you love. Stay healthy so you can do what you love.

Community - Surround yourself with people you enjoy who share common goals and values. Life is much more enjoyable when spent with others.

Whether you’ve never set foot in a gym or just can’t remember the last time because it’s been that long, we want to help you get started. Take that step toward changing your life. We understand the intimidation of walking into a gym when you’re out of shape but I promise you, if you can muster enough courage to just walk in and give it a try you won’t regret it.

All you need is 20 seconds of courage to just walk through the door and we’ll take it from there. Once you’re inside, you’re off and running and it’s all downhill from there. You may have to muster that 20 seconds of courage every single day for the first several weeks maybe even months but as with anything, the more you do it, the easier it gets. Dig deep, find the courage and take that first step.

If you fit into this category we suggest going through a cycle of our Skills and Drills class to get familiar with the movements we use in classes.

So perhaps it’s been awhile since you’ve been active but you still fit into most of your clothes and your Dr isn’t reading you the riot act every time you go in for a check up but you just don’t feel as good as you did when you were active on a daily basis. Well we want to help you get back to feeling like yourself and having the energy to get through the day without a gallon of coffee, cream, and sugar.

If you fit into this category we suggest going through a cycle of our Skills and Drills class to get familiar with the movements we use in classes.

If you're in top form and coming to us with extensive Crossfit or weightlifting experience, our open class is just the place for you. Whether you have a desire to compete in CrossFit Competitions or just want to get in the best shape you can possible be in we'd love to help you reach your goals. We have the knowledge and experience to take you to the level you want to be at. And if there’s something we don’t know we have a network in place to help us find the answer.

After serving hard time in the corporate world I can hardly find the words to express how excited I am to be working in sweatpants and training shoes all day. Dedicating my time to helping others experience the benefits of real world athletic training that I’ve been able to enjoy since youth. While I’ve only trained in the CrossFit modality for about 2 years by CrossFit HQ’s definition of the term I’ve been exercising in a functional capacity for my entire competitive athletic career which includes hockey, road and mountain cycling and short lived success in baseball. The movements and philosophy of CrossFit are not state of the art. Hard work through compound barbell movements, gymnastics, and cardio intensive intervals have been the foundation of athletic training since the beginning of competitive sports. CrossFit and the modern functional fitness movement is now making it possible for real people to live normal lives and still be able to train like an athlete is supposed to whether they are competing for a specific sport or simply pursuing a healthier, more enjoyable lifestyle. It is my sincere honor and pleasure to share what I’ve learned over a lifetime and am continually learning about functional fitness, mobility, and strength to those who are receptive and dedicated enough to train at our facility. CrossFit is not a cult. Its a team. A community, and a call to action for everyday people ready to change their lives for the better. I look forward to doing everything I can to bring you the best fitness experience you’ve ever had.

Deriving much of my from a background from college athletics I became interested in strength and conditioning in 2011. I researched strength and conditioning to best train myself, and went to school to best educate myself in the study of human kinetics and rehabilitative programming in order to share this knowledge with others. Although I enjoy the focus of Olympic lifting and preparing for CrossFit competitions, I have the ability and knowledge to get individuals to their goals in fitness, whatever they may be. I believe it is best to be well rounded in knowledge as well as skill set in order to meet people where they are on their journey to personal fitness success. Every day, advances in science are made; I strive to continually study the best methods according to the newest evidence that is available. I see it as my duty to provide this information to athletes, in relation to athlete’s goals, in order for each individual to reach their optimal genetic potential.

Fitness has always been a part of my lifestyle from little leagues, recreational sports, travel teams, varsity sports, college intramurals and group fitness. Just when I thought I had “tried it all” a good friend and patient of mine asked me to try Crossfit. My initial reaction was I am all set, I run, lift weights, teach group fitness classes and so much more what else could there be. Then I was introduced to my first Crossfit class which entailed sumo dead lift high pulls, overhead squats, burpee box jumps and pull ups. All of which I had NEVER done before. I was addicted from the first rep. Having taught group fitness for over 12 years with numerous certifications it just felt natural to take on a role as a coach. But I also knew I had to prove myself as an athlete and person to the guys. As a dental hygienist I am constantly discussing overall health with patients and not just their teeth. So, naturally Crossfit, diet, exercise, medications, mental health and social health seem to find their way into my daily conversations. At CrossFit Luminary my knowledge of the body as a whole, nutrition has grown beyond what I could have imagined, which in turn helps me on a regular basis with patients and their overall health. Every day I am thankful for the friends, knowledge, physical challenges and triumphs I have already made personally but more importantly helped others to achieve.

I’ve been doing CrossFit now for about 10 years and have been involved in CF from a business standpoint now for over 4 years. I was introduced to CF back in the early days in 2004 while I was in the Army Special Forces Qualification Course. During my time in SF I enjoyed several opportunities I might not have otherwise received. I had the pleasure of receiving some training at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs and spent several years working with and training at the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA - provides the CSCS certification). These opportunities along with the experience I’ve gained from years of CF have built my foundation of knowledge and understanding in fitness.

I spent several years working as an Army Special Forces operator (Green Beret) but after several years and several deployments around the world, I was ready for something new. That’s right, I gave up one of the coolest and sexiest jobs in the military - traded in my cool gear and trips around the world for Lululemon and Reebok Nanos. Within 6 months of getting out of the Army I had opened my first CrossFit gym.

It’s been fun watching CrossFit evolve over the years. When I started doing CF, it was the wild west of fitness. We were doing things that you never saw in a traditional gym, people looked at us like we were crazy, and sometime they even kicked us out of the gym. At times it felt like CF really was only for the young, fit, and highly capable but that’s not the case these days, and I’m happy that shift has occurred.

I love being part of the CrossFit community, especially now that the fitness landscape has changed and CF is practiced by a much larger demographic. We have people from high school age to retirees training and I think that’s so cool. We truly want to take our knowledge and experience in health and fitness and make it accessible to all. If you’ve never been to CrossFit Luminary, come check it out, we’d love to get to know you.
