Company Bio

IXF CrossFit was established in 2012 by Vernon Garard a local Indianapolis Firefighter. We first opened about 2 miles from our current location and knew within about 6 months that we needed to do something. Even being the first CrossFit gym in the south Indy/Greenwood area we did not foresee having that many members so quickly. So, we relocated to our to a much larger building and are currently expanding that facility. Vernon had visited CrossFit gyms across the country and picked what he liked and didn't like. His thought was if he could give his CrossFit community what he wanted in a gym then it would be successful. Such as being open all day, having classes every hour on the hour, having a clean non intimidating facility and educated professional coaches. IXF CrossFit was runner up on Indy's A list last year for the best CrossFit Gym in the Indianapolis area. This year IXF CrossFit won a national Facebook award for "Best Fitness Facility"
IXF CrossFit believes in giving back to their local community and has raised more than $30,000 in the last four years for local charities.

Our company is based on the belief that our customer’s needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business comes from repeat customers and referrals.

Welcome to IXF CrossFit, where results are earned; not purchased. We are here to motivate, educate, and coach you. Your journey will require hard work, dedication, and determination. We will teach you how to get in the best shape of your life and how to maintain it. We will push you, but we will always offer a positive and caring environment; you will love who you become. So come in for a free fitness and nutrition consultation.

The human body is an incredible machine that can adapt to all forms of stimulus and stress. The problem with typical cardio equipment like stationary bikes, treadmills, and elliptical machines is that you will get extremely efficient at the exercise. Calories will be burned, no doubt about that. However, once the body learns the movement and becomes more efficient, it burns less calories. Come in to try out CrossFit and “Witness the fitness” as my son, Vinny, says.

How we are different from most Crossfit Boxes: We are open all day and start our classes on the hour every hour. You do not have to schedule your class time on line. You can come in at 8am one day and 3p the next day, just show up a few minutes before each class and be ready to go at the start at the top of the hour. We start the class with a group warm up, followed by instruction for the daily workout. During the workout, you will get coaching, encouragement and correction from a qualified CrossFit instructor. We then will do a cool down/mobility session. You will always have the opportunity to work with an instructor and to address any individual needs. We are unaware of any CrossFit boxes offering this flexibility for their clients.


You will be required to attend one of our onramp classes before being able to work out with in our CrossFit classes. During this class, you will learn nine fundamental movements followed by a short workout. After completion of the onramp class, you can come in for the regular classes any hour on the hour.
