A place with great equipment and coaches? A place where you can do your own thing on your own schedule… and also get expert instruction, as part of a community that really cares about your progress?
Look no further. Albany CrossFit and CrossFit Clifton Park are the answer.
Just ask one of our members, Andy St. John. The 52-year-old software engineer is closing in on a 500 pound deadllift and a 500 pound back squat, all thanks to the expert instruction and camaraderie at Albany CrossFit.
“When people ask me for a good place to lift, I always say Albany CrossFit. Some people are surprised. They don’t really get what we do here,” says St. John.
Albany CrossFit and CrossFit Clifton Park have everything you’d expect: leader boards, lifting platforms, tons of barbells and plates, dumb bells, reverse hyper and GHD machines, and strongman gear, including yokes and stones.
More importantly: the gyms have expert coaches like James McDermott who says: “There is almost always a coach around to offer a spot and tips to those working out on their own.” McDermott also offers occasional small group classes on the Westside method.
When members join Albany CrossFit and CrossFit Clifton Park, they get an unlimited, all-access pass. On top of CrossFit classes, they are free to work out on their own almost anytime the doors are open.
Andy St. John likes “the wild diversity” of athletes he meets at Albany CrossFit who are “all really dedicated and committed.” He says “the strong sense of community” has helped him go far beyond what he thought possible. He says he was “like a kid in candy store” when he saw all that the gym offered. So he tried out kettlebell and strongman classes, on top of his weightlifting.
Coach James McDermott has been an instructor at other gyms and says it’s the strong community atmosphere at Albany CrossFit and CrossFit Clifton Park that makes all the difference. “I just love helping people get stronger,” says McDermott.
At Albany CrossFit, we treat everyone who walks through the door like an athlete, regardless of your current fitness level. Our members are great about encouraging each other, as we scale things to your current fitness level.
It’s really about becoming your best self. That’s the real win.
