I am a retired U.S. Army aviator. I served 20+ years on active duty and spent the last 7 years in a Special Operations Unit. I arrived in Prescott AZ, to attend a local flight school. I have been a Crossfit trainer for two plus years, competed in the Utah 2011 Masters Division Fitness elevated competition. I attended several Crossfit gyms in the Prescott area. After meeting Joey Powell the owner of Crossfit Prescott, I knew that was the place for me. I can only tell you what I experienced while working under Joey. He was honest every step of the way. I came to Joey’s gym in what I thought was great shape for 44 years old. I would soon find out that the programing and strength training would take me to a whole new level. My personal record for a bench press was 235 lbs. After two months with Crossfit Prescott, I now have a 275 lbs new PR. I have a 48” box jump and am in the best shape that I have ever been. I guess to sum it up, what are you looking for? Honesty, Integrity, Loyalty, Commitment, Dedication, Family, Patriot, the list could go on and on. If you want a place to call home, look no further, give Joey three to six months of your life, and in return he will give you more than you ever thought possible. Joey, you truly are a Patriot, great Dad, Trainer and friend. Boyd N. Curry Ret. Chief Warrant Officer Four U.S. Army SOAR

Praxis Athletics/CrossFit Prescott is a high performance training center, not an open gym, so our prices reflect this. This our SANCTUARY. Our AGOGE. This is not a “Boot Camp” for you to make-believe you are in the military for an hour a day. This is personal to us. Quality is our sole measuring stick. We train athletes. We train professionals looking for more than just a sweat. We train individuals looking to be strong and fit. We are experts at biomechanics and progressionary fitness.
Our common bond is the desire to get better. We challenge the body and mind’s ability to get better through hard work, overcoming adversity and change. Change is not comfortable. Our goal is fitness through strength and capacity. We are not content to just look good. Looking good naked is a byproduct. Words like “comfortable” and “soft” are not in our vocabulary. Phrases such as “this is not for me” and “I can’t do that!” are not in our vernacular.
We wish we could say it was easy. Would you want it if it was? There are no shortcuts. We do not know how to get you better without diliberate, hard work. If you find a way, please contact us. While our training is for everybody, it is not for everyone. We are a private training facility where strong is beautiful and performance is coveted over the make of your car and the brand of your watch.
If you read this and think “Yes. Finally!”, then please contact us. This is the reason we are the best Strength and Conditioning facility in Prescott, The Tri-City area, Arizona and Earth.
