Why Lithium CrossFit?

Lithium Crossfit was born from the love and passion of a group of friends that built their friendship by working out together for more than 7 years. Throughout these years they recognize the importance of how living a healthy life is easier when surrounded by a strongly bounded community. In this story we started like everyone else, with just a dream, and step by step it has become a reality.

“Since starting with Lithium, my lifestyle has changed for the better across the board. Not only have I become faster and stronger, but I have seen a drastic decrease in my stress level and an increase in my energy level. I have also seen a decrease in my desire for alcohol and caffeine. This gym is not just for the competitive "cross-fitters" but for people who just want to get into shape.”
