It’s official! I just signed the lease on our first of two new locations! (See photos below!)
CrossFit Excellence will be located at 4409 SE 24th, Portland OR 97222
We are still in negotiations for a space for CrossFit West Linn.
***Update Feb. 6th***
This freak snow storm may be putting us back a coupe days on the schedule. We’ll have to improvise! Check back here to stay informed. Perhaps we can do the big moving day on Saturday or Sunday, if not then maybe next Wednesday? We’ll see!
So far we should still be on track to open by the 17th though! Stay Tuned!!!
We will be moving flooring in tomorrow, Feb. 4th.
We will be setting up the pull-up bar cages on Wednesday, Feb. 5th.
I think the major moving of everything else will be on Saturday, February 8th. (Still TBD)
The goal for the first official day of WOD’s will be Monday, February 17th! (Perhaps an open workout on Saturday the 15th… Still TBD)
As I stated above, we have no dates for CrossFit West Linn, however we are in serious negotiations on a great new space!
Some of you may be wondering why we are not setting up in Lake Oswego again. The truth is, after serving the downtown LO area for a full decade now, we have determined that our business is simply unsustainable in such a high-rent and narrow demographic area. We sincerely hope however, that by opening the TWO locations where we are planning, we will be within easy reach of all of you at one or the other locations.
The new locations are exponentially more functional than any of our previous locations! We will be moving in this week, setting up all sorts of cool new programs the following week, and opening up CrossFit Excellence by mid-February. Meanwhile, we hope to have things in West Linn tied up and establish a timeline for that location.
The two gyms will be integrated through some shared membership programs as will as many of our traditional special events. (The CrossFit Games Opens, The Shamrock Run Team, Our 10th Anniversary Celebration Wine Tour! etc…)
Honestly, there are too many exciting new things to share to fit into this one post, so I’ll sign off for now. Stay tuned for details as they develop- as I’ve said before (and it’s never been truer) The best is yet to come!

Remember when I said our new spaces would be more functional for sledgehammers, and sleds? Yep- we’ll have some elbow room!
ROPE CLIMBS? YES PLEASE!
TRACTOR TIRES? RUNNING? …NO PROB! This bay door faces straight out from our portion of the warehouse. Nice wide sidewalks, and some of you will be happy to see the nearby terrain is pretty flat!
