At CrossFit Movida, our philosophy is rooted in empowering individuals to unleash their true potential and live their best lives. We wholeheartedly believe in the transformative power of building a strong and resilient body, cultivating a resilient mindset, and embracing a balanced approach to wellness. Our holistic approach goes beyond achieving a desired physique, optimal performance, and pain-free flexibility. We are dedicated to nurturing a positive mindset, fostering self-belief, and igniting a passion for personal growth. Through our tight-knit and supportive community, combined with expert guidance, we inspire individuals to overcome barriers, surpass limitations, and embrace a life filled with vitality and fulfillment. CrossFit Movida is committed to helping you look, feel, and perform at your absolute best.


Our philosophy is centered around an exhilarating training experience that defies the mundane. We believe in infusing fun and excitement into every session, ensuring our clients enjoy their fitness journey to the fullest.

At the heart of our approach is performance and skill-based training. We strive to push boundaries, continuously improving and mastering new skills. Our focus lies in expanding range of motion, enabling fluid and functional movements.

We emphasize mobility, stability, and flexibility as essential pillars of our philosophy. By prioritizing these elements, we promote overall physical well-being and reduce the risk of injuries. Recovery holds a key place, allowing for healing and strength building.

We embrace functional bodybuilding, combining strength training with functional movements for a balanced and functional physique. Our workouts are constantly varied, encompassing a diverse range of exercises that mimic real-life motions.

To optimize performance, we employ 3-month periodization blocks, breaking through strength and conditioning plateaus. This enables continual growth and progress.

Our philosophy extends beyond physicality. We seek to redefine mindsets, empowering clients to cultivate positivity, mental resilience, and personal growth.

Form and progression take precedence in our training, ensuring proper technique and a structured pathway to success.

Together, we foster an inclusive and supportive training environment, empowering clients to unlock their potential, achieve their goals, and live vibrant lives.


Our philosophy centers around the importance of nutrition for overall health and performance. We prioritize the quality of our food, recognizing the role of both macro and micronutrients in supporting well-being.

At least 80% of your diet should consist of nutrient-dense foods. These foods provide essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. We focus on whole, unprocessed options, emphasizing real food over packaged products.

Mindful eating and portion control play a significant role in achieving your desired body composition. We emphasize finding the right balance for sustainable progress and fostering a healthy relationship with food.

Sustainability and community support are fundamental to us. We prioritize locally sourced ingredients, promoting environmental responsibility and supporting local farmers and suppliers.

Our approach centers on long-term sustainable nutrition through habit building. We guide you in developing healthy eating patterns that can be maintained for a lifetime, avoiding fads and quick fixes.

Carbohydrates as essential energy for optimal performance. They are not the enemy; they fuel your body.

Evidence-based practices guide us, steering clear of diet trends and overnight results. We empower you to make informed choices for lasting health and well-being.

Together, we nourish your body with quality, whole foods, fostering sustainable nutrition practices for lasting results.

People First. Fitness Follows.

Most people who make resolutions to get fit or live a healthier lifestyle don’t follow through on their commitment. They can pay the gym membership, wear the right clothes, follow the right instagramers or listen to ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ on repeat, but without this ONE vital ingredient they will fail. To truly follow through on achieving our goals we need coaches and friends to guide, motivate and support us. Without it, people don’t stay accountable to the journey and they give up. We’ve all seen it a thousand times. From your very first interaction at CrossFit Movida you will find an inspiring community of people who are invested in your fitness journey from day one. You’ll find a family.
