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.
