Grow physically and spiritually as you train with our world-class coaches and connect with fellow CrossFit athletes and professionals!  Learn how your faith can bring renewed purpose to your athletic performance, profession and relationships, and steer you in the direction God desires for your life.

Skill sessions expose you to instruction and analysis in all three elements of movement: weightlifting, gymnastics, and monostructural (running, rowing, etc).  Reinforce each of the skill types in an inspirational and competitive environment with workouts providing opportunity for additional guidance.  Up your game as you build safe, efficient and effective technique for a lifetime.

A copy of the Athlete New Testament, a Faith Rx’d T-shirt, wristband, and renewed perspective how to honor Christ through your training and life are all part of the experience! 

“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”  -Proverbs 27:17

Feedback from our previous events:

“One of the most powerful events I’ve ever been a part of. The seminar has changed many things in my personal and faith life and I can’t thank the coaches enough for how well the event was managed.”

“I absolutely LOVED my experience!”

“ISI was truly what it says – pursuing excellence and being challenged spiritually, physically and mentally.”

“Wonderful!  I needed to see that it was possible to incorporate two passions and have them work together for the better.”

“Thank you!  I thought ISI was a great use of my time and money.”

“The blend of so many CF and faith-based elements made for a well-rounded weekend, and the staff, their professionalism and desire to invest themselves ultimately made the event a top-notch experience.”

“Combining workouts with great sessions on God and Faith just doesn’t get much better.”

“It by far exceeded my expectations, and was hands down the best training event I have attended. Coming together, learning from the best, and sharing our love and faith in Christ was very powerful.  The event has extemely motivated me to use the gifts God has given me, and I want to invest more time serving God, and less time just living for myself.”\

“It has greatly impacted me and the love and motivation felt at the event was incredible.” 

“I felt called to be there and I am definitely praying about my next steps. I honestly feel this is the type of thing God has been preparing me for and this may be where I start by helping with this ministry.”

FAQ

Do I have to be an “elite” athlete, box owner or coach to participate?

No.  Whatever profession or direction you scale workouts, you will leave with a better understanding of CrossFit movement efficiency, and a clearer vision of how to carry out your faith in your sphere of influence.

How many will be able to attend?

We cap at 50.

Do I have to be a Christian to attend?

No, we welcome and encourage everyone to attend.  There will be high level coaching as well as a clear presentation of the Christian gospel and opportunities to grow in your faith and ask questions.

How do I request to host an Iron Sharpens Iron event at my box?
