When and how did your business get started?

CrossFit Mokena started with two fitness enthusiasts, former athletes, and CrossFitters got together with an idea to open an all inclusive CrossFit facility in the Mokena area. We officially opened in January 2013 and have been having a great time helping people get in the best shape of their lives ever since.

What is your business best known for?

We are known for providing our members with excellent coaching and workout programming to help people reach their fitness goals. We have many great athletes who compete in the sports of CrossFit, Olympic weightlifting, and running to name a few.

But we are equally know for the fact that we have members in their 50's and 60's training alongside our great competitor athletes. CrossFit is truly for everyone.

Why did you choose the town you did to open your business? 

I was familiar with Mokena since I had practiced Chiropractic here since 2010. I knew Mokena was a great town to do business in and we saw a demand for what we have to offer here. We love Mokena, its residents, and the many small businesses in this town!

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know?

We are an all inclusive CrossFit gym. We are most proud of the fact that we cater to people of all athletic abilities and fitness levels. For example, if you walk into any class at our facility you may see former contestants from the Biggest Loser training right next to one of our athletes who is training for the CrossFit games. Whether your goals are weight loss and fat loss or training to be a better athlete, we want to provide a workout home for you.
