Each class is instructor-led through the warmup, skills training, work out of the day, our high intensity piece, and cool down.

Rising Rock is named to honor Chattanooga, derived from the Muskogean word for Lookout Mountain, roughly translated to “rock rising to a point.”  CrossFit is defined as “constantly varied, high-intensity functional movements,” - combining elements of cardiovascular endurance, weightlifting, and everyday movements.  Downtown Family YMCA Rising Rock CrossFit staff are skilled at tailoring options appropriate for each individual and providing an optimal stimulus to help you reach your goals. Coaches will instinctively push you to be your very best. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced athlete, this class is for you!
