CrossFit Striking Trainer Course



“Fighters are some of the most well-conditioned and powerful athletes in the world.  This is due, in part, to their striking training since punching and kicking with true power, speed and accuracy requires people to utilize their entire body from the ground up.  As a consequence, striking is one of the most rudimentary and functional movements that involve the core.”

George Ryan, SWAT Team member and Martial Arts Masters Hall-of-Fame inductee, developed this program in order to help individuals increase their performance in CrossFit by combining it with a fighter’s striking training program. 

Some of the many benefits to this course include: 

● Achieve a fighter’s fitness level

● Add variety to CrossFit workouts

● Be able to throw proper strikes and combinations, i.e. punch & kick

● Understand the role of the kinetic chain and the posterior chain that

support athletic performance and fighting

● Increase the speed and power of strikes, regardless of experience

● Be able to teach proper striking mechanics to clients

● Safely run a training session involving striking skills and drills

● Teach an essential self-protection skill-set to athletes

● Effectively utilize shadow boxing, focus mitts and a heavy bag

This course will be held at CrossFit Love, 941 N. Front St. Philadelphia, October 18-19.

New No-Show Policy!

MEMBERS: effective immediately there will be a new policy for ‘no-shows’ of the regularly scheduled classes.  

You are allowed to miss 1x and after that you will be charged 20$ for every ‘no-show’ without a proper excuse.  

There are a number of ways to reach a coach if you feel you need to cancel a session and it is passed the 8 hour mark.


CALL: (267) 687-2858

Many of our classes are filled and we hate to see individuals miss a workout because they were placed on the wait-list when there would have been room for them in a session. 

April 5th Paleo Potluck & Spring Cleanup

cleanupThis Saturday, April 5th will be the Philly Spring Cleanup. Following the cleanup, CrossFit Love will be hosting a Paleo Potluck. The 2014 Open is over and the weather is going to be beautiful so anyone who comes out to clean and help out is welcome to join the potluck.

The Spring Cleanup will begin at 9am.  We will be cleaning up Front Street and Canal Street, and painting the downstairs. 

Level 1 & 2 will be doing CrossFit total all day long if you are interested in that.

Feel free to bring family members, loved ones, or best friends. There is a sign-up in the gym in regards to attendees and foods.  Make sure you check it out and write down what you plan to bring.  We will have a grill ready so feel free so bring things that may need to be cooked.

April Schedule Changes

Schedule Changes

1. Beginning April 1st we will be eliminating open gym from 1pm – 4:30 pm.  We believe the coaching staff knows best when it comes to getting you the best training possible.  We would like to see people in the classes in order to ensure you are getting the most out of your training.  The morning open gym times will stay the same because of the closeness in class times. 

2. Monday through Thursday at 8pm will be a level 1 session.

3. Assessments and personal training sessions can be made any time a trainer is available.  This includes personal training sessions for the fast track option. 

Spring Cleanup & Paleo Potluck




Saturday April 5th, CrossFit Love will once again, be hosting the Philly Spring Cleanup. We’ll be working on Front Street, Canal Street, and our own backyard, as well as painting the downstairs and fixing up the bathroom.  To many people, the gym is almost a second home so let’s all work together to make it as nice as possible. 

For all volunteers who join us on Saturday, we will be hosting a Paleo Potluck afterwards! Friends and family are welcome so be sure to mark this one down!

Welcome Gina Griffin! Sports Massages For Everyone!!

Sports massage can help you be ready for physical activity and reach your peak performance. With regular sports massage, you can avoid injury and reduce your body’s recovery time, and perform your best. 

sports massage crossfit philly

Sports massage is different from a typical full body massage. The therapists will incorporate a wide variety of massage modalities and techniques to meet the need of the athlete. Each session will focus on the muscles used for a specific physical activity. It may be more vigorous than most massages, and could incorporate guided stretching.

  • Pre Event: Receiving a sports massage prior to your workout or athletic event can loosen your muscles. By combining sports massage with stretching the muscles will be warmed up and ready for intense activity.
  • Post Event: After the event sports massage can reduce recovery time, prevent muscle soreness and stiffness, and alleviate pain.
  • Maintenance: Received regularly sports massage reduces the occurrence of injury, increases physical performance and allows you to perform your best.

Gina will be available full-time starting this Monday April 22nd. She will be available for:

  • 30 minute sessions are 50$ 
  • 60 minute sessions are 80$
  • 90 minutes sessions are 90$
  • packages are available; inquire with Joe, Dave or Gina.

To schedule a session email gina: or book online through ZP.

If you have any questions please email joe or gina directly.
