Covid-19 Gym Closing PSA

Dear Defined Community, 

We are here for you in this unprecedented time of need.

In light of the developing and ongoing impacts of COVID-19, we have made the extremely difficult decision to temporarily close, beginning tomorrow, March 17th through Monday, March 30th. The health and safety of you and our coaching staff are at the forefront of this decision, as we commit to solving this problem alongside our fellow small business owners and surrounding communities.

Your health is our priority. Beginning tomorrow, we will be offering a 14-day, online lifestyle challenge: “Flatten the Curve.” We believe in the resilience of this community, and we’re here to see you through this. You can expect:

Join Here.

  • Daily at-home workouts programmed by your coaches, available via our website and social media platforms
  • Video previews and demonstrations of each programmed workout
  • Daily challenges that pertain to your sleep, movement, water intake, nutrition, and mindset. Details will be released shortly. 
  • Equipment lending. Details coming soon for a Wednesday pickup and sign-out of equipment. 

Our goal is to maintain and elevate the strength of our community through fitness that brings us together in times when connection is limited. More details about our 14-day challenge will be released early tomorrow morning. We hope you’ll join the movement. 

Closing the gym was not an easy decision for us, please know that your support is integral for a small business like ours during these unprecedented times, and that your membership ensures the employment and wellness of our coaching staff. As we continue to support you through these tough times, we appreciate and recognize your continued support during some of our hardest times. 

We are committed to being more than a gym for our community. Let’s all stay positive, take the necessary precautions for our self and the ones we care about. Stay home, stay healthy, read a book, clean out your junk drawer and we will see you soon!  

For continued updates, please visit our Website and follow us on Instagram.

Team Defined

The best coaches and teammates
in Chicago. Hands down. This place has changed
my life.

Good morning Coach, I just did a workout at a CrossFit gym here in DC and I want to tell you how much I appreciate the team at Defined. You guys "spoil us" with not only amazing equipment but also amazing coaches who know how to bring the best out of us.

I could go on...If you're on the fence about spending a significant chunk of change every month, think of it as one of the best investments in yourself you can make - physically, mentally, and socially. It doesn't matter if you've had trouble going to the gym regularly in the past or you've been a competitive athlete, this place is for you. Seriously. Do it.

From day one, everyone has gone out of their way to learn my name and relate. It really is an awesome community. I imagine CFD is CrossFit the way CrossFit was always meant to be - gritty (no mirrors - sorry, no selfies), casual, warm, and effective.
