Creating a community that breeds commitment, confidence, and unity.
StoneWay CrossFit was opened in 2009 by Scott Rodriguez, an innovator, mentor, and community builder.
We teach basic to advanced classes in functional exercise, athletic conditioning, plyometrics, kettle bell training, Olympic weightlifting, medicine ball and dumbbell training, power-lifting, gymnastics, rowing, running and jumping rope like many CrossFit gyms. But mainly, we pride ourselves on how we teach. We believe in the integrity of movement, the safety of our students, and a steady progress that develops not just athleticism, but a high quality of life.
School of Fitness
We consider StoneWay CrossFit a school… not just another gym in Seattle where you will squeeze in a workout. StoneWay is a place to learn and grow – to improve your body AND your mind. StoneWay is a place to become knowledgeable in the mechanics, strengths, limitations, and possibilities of your body. At StoneWay CrossFit, we want you to use your brain as well as your muscles – to learn, to challenge yourself, to try new things you never thought possible, to practice new skills that require you to be focused and present. We teach you how to move your body with proper mechanics, to get strong and fast, to increase your power output, to increase your endurance and stamina, to get flexible, stable, and balanced, and to move with grace and agility. We do this so that when you’re NOT with us, you can truly just have fun.
Our Community is a thriving, living body, consisting of 185 active members and coaches who are healthy, strong, and vital. We are committed to life within the context of health and fitness. Our StoneWay community has great power. Our students are extremely diverse in their experience, conditioning, and lives. We are a down-to-earth community that does extraordinary things in and out of the gym on a daily basis. Their level of fitness only enhances this.
We believe that fitness is a state of mind, a way of being. It shows up in the way you talk, walk, sleep, eat, work, play, dress and relax. It is the physical embodiment of the character traits of honor, courage, confidence, discipline, integrity, responsibility, dedication, and joy. It is also instrumental in reducing the immediate and cumulative effects of stress and anxiety. We’ve found that the fitter a person is, the more he/she is physically able to do the things that bring joy and fun to life – everything from feeling strong, confident and energetic through your normal work day, running around with your kids, being physically active and playing sports, to traveling to remote corners of the earth. Being physically fit is inspiring, feels good, enriches your life, and adds both years to your life, and life to your years. People who are fit seem to have a clearer, more optimistic view of life. For us, the bottom line is this: Fitness allows you to live your best.
