What is “Lift Local”?

THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING TO LIFT LOCAL.

Defined is a small business with a big heart. And we know we have our community to thank when it comes to our continued growth, authentic approach, and of course, our ability to navigate a global pandemic. The truth is, March 2020 delt us into uncharted territory with outcomes unknown. But we survived because you subscribed

When you Lift Local, it means you support people who care about the future of your health and wellness. It means you trust that your coaches work hard every day to give you the kind, honest feedback you deserve. When you Lift Local, you’re supporting teachers, creatives, researchers, athletes, and artists. And that you stand by us when we say we’re stronger together and more than a gym. 

Ten years ago, Defined was built to welcome all and to appreciate the strength of those who walked through our doors. In choosing to Lift Local, you’ve made a conscious decision to keep them wide open.

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.
