New Owner at Local Business – CrossFit Gardendale

October 20, 2022

CrossFit Gardendale, located at 749 Main Street in Gardendale, has new owners and some innovative changes coming to this local gym.

Kenneth and Brooke Batson 

Gardendale residents and long-time CrossFit Gardendale members Kenneth and Brooke enjoyed their membership. They followed the program to stay healthy, exercise, and build strength. Kenneth even became a Crossfit coach, and his children attended the CFG Kids.

Recently they were excited to discover the Gardendale gym was for sale and decided to invest in the program and community.

Kenneth and Brooke have been married for 17 years and are long-time residents of Gardendale. They have two boys, Austin and Seth.

Kenneth has a construction company he opened in 2020, KAS Construction and Remodeling. His wife, Brooke, is a hair stylist at Salon Genesis in Warrior. 

Family Values

CrossFit is about movement and fun. While each CrossFit affiliate is unique, they all share in a relentless and continual pursuit of excellence, coaching, programming, and a community that supports you in your goals.

While CrossFit can be done at home, in garage gyms, or at the beach, CrossFit Gardendale provides a one-of-a-kind community that will encourage and pushes you to do your best. The expert coaches guide you in the safest way to reach your goal. It is more than a place to exercise but a place to get healthier with your whole family and others.

When you walk into CrossFit Gardendale, you never have to walk alone and unguided. Coaches and others like you will help you move and feel better.

New owners, New equipment, New ideas, New you

Kenneth and Brooke see great things happening in their CrossFit Gardendale. Updated and new equipment will be coming, along with many new programs.

They want to fuel a new interest in fitness that advocates health and wellness. Where you train is less important than how you train and who you train with, they plan to make Gardendale’s Crossfit the one to be emulated. 

Community is another important aspect of their program. Gardendale is known for its strong community ties. Keeping the community healthy, supported, and fit is an important part of Gardendale’s gym..

There’s even a special offer to “Try 2 classes in one week @ CrossFit Gardendale for free” Just sign the waiver and show up. They know once you try it, you will feel it is worth your time, energy, and investment!

CrossFit Gardendale is making plans to help the community in many different ways; they are planning to provide Christmas gifts for underprivileged local children at the elementary school, support local charities, offer a new membership program that offers three days a week at a much-discounted rate, teaching CrossFit for kids, and even offering a Winter camp week for kids ages 10-17 the week of December 19-23 and January 2-6th.

Crossfit has been around for over two decades. It started as a grassroots company and has become a call to all who care about fitness to get the car out of the garage and go work out. Community, health, fitness, and wanting to be the best that you can be are the goals they encourage. 

Crossfit has changed the face of fitness and how people think about working out. Join Kenneth and Brooke and find the way to a healthier life.

As Kenneth states, “ a healthier version of you is the best version you can offer.”

We at the NJP hope to see you at the gym.
