Newer to the CrossFit world it was a little intimidating to visit another box while on some work trips. I reached out via email for some details and received an immediate welcoming response. From my first email to my 7th visit Jeremy, Cheryl, Kat and the entire 5am crew were very friendly motivating and welcoming. I looked forward to going back every trip. It was a very positive environment where you were made to feel comfortable no matter what level you were at. I will stop in every time I am in town for good WOD. Only downfall would be that I didn’t check in earlier.

I was in St. Cloud for work and dropped into Granite City right before class. Was an awesome open and friendly experience. Multiple people wanted to chat on where I was from and what I was doing in town. Just shows the strong community they have. Truly enjoyed a gym that values the work over the pomp and circumstance!

I worked out at Granite City Crossfit for 2 months over the summer and LOVED IT. The coaches were super knowledgeable and always willing to patiently answer my questions, so I left after two months feeling fitter and like I know more than when I arrived. I also love the emphasis they place on warm ups, which made me more confident about pushing myself in workouts without fear of injury. Finally, the gym was super positive and friendly. I was surprised that even though I was only visiting for a limited time people made an effort to get to know me.
Thanks for a great time, Granite City!

We want to thank Jeremy Lang and the coaches at CrossFit for their work with our son, Jon. He started Crossfit with them in May, and has attended classes 4-5 times a week since then. He’s gained 12 pounds and is much more physically and mentally prepared to reach his athletic goals, which include playing college athletics. Jeremy is constantly pushing him to reach his goals.
It’s extremely evident that Jeremy promotes high goal-setting and wants nothing less than to achieve them. No-nonsense philosophy.

I dropped in to Granite City while visiting family for the holidays. Jeremy fosters a strong community feeling, all while maintaining high standards for his athletes. I immediately felt welcome: it was a partner workout and Jeremy invited me to do it with him. He also spent several minutes after class getting to know me. The workout was challenging but enjoyable. If I lived in St. Cloud, this would be my Crossfit home, no questions asked.

My grandson Jacob and I travelled from Australia to St Cloud in September for the Granite Games where Jake competed in the pro/elite division. Prior to the commencement of the games we took the opportunity to visit Granite City Crossfit so Jake could do a work out and shake off the jet lag. Jeremy welcomed us and gave Jake full access to the facilities. The professionalism displayed by Jeremy was second to none and if Jake makes it to the games in 2018 he will certainly be visiting once again.

Very friendly gym community! The location is good, not to busy with traffic. The coaches are very welcoming! I dropped in for two early morning classes at 6am, while on job interviews. The first day the class size was small but the second day it was quite large. The programming seems good and they have scaled options for all levels of fitness. I would recommend this to anyone looking to drop in for a workout. I did not go to any other crossfit gym in the area, so cannot make any comparisons. The coaching staff also contacted me very quickly after I messaged them, looking to drop in.

Fantastic Box! I dropped in while I was working in the area and could not say enough good things about Jeremy and his team. My work takes me all over North America and Granite City is hands down one of the best places to train at. They differentiate themselves from the majority of affiliates by the following reasons:
1) Coaching – The level of coaching is some of the best I have seen; not only from an emphasis on technique but also from a behavior and mindset standpoint
2) Programming – They put thought into their programming! Which is something you don't see very often, unfortunately
3) Emphasis on Mobility – I have never been at an affiliate that has so much focus on mobility. This is such a differentiating factor that I wish more boxes would follow
A must! Especially if you are starting off Crossfit for the first time

I travel the U.S. for work and have been to about a dozen different crossfit boxes (including a couple around St. Cloud), and this gym has been one of my favorites by far. The facility is nice, good equipment, and an all-around great atmosphere. Coach Jeremy has a vast knowledge in fitness and is able to transfer his skills to the class in a way that an average person can understand and utilize to better themselves physically and mentally. I highly recommend this gym to anybody and everybody of all ages and fitness levels!
