  • Why Courage Fitness Is The Best CrossFit Gym In Durham, NC


We help ordinary people find the courage to do extraordinary things.

At Courage Fitness Durham, we believe everyone should have the chance to get into the best shape of their life, regardless of their current fitness level, body type, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, preferred pronoun, gender identity, occupation, or anything else that makes them unique. We understand that a lot of people don’t stick with an exercise program because they simply don’t enjoy it.

At CFD, you will learn that working out can be fun…and that being surrounded by other inspiring people can help you find the courage necessary to reach your goals. Our unique, professional coaching process meets you where you are so that the workouts you do everyday work for you…regardless of your starting point.  Beginners and advanced members workout side by side and experience a challenging, functional, and fun workout every single time together.

This is no typical gym. We don’t do quick fixes, gimmicks, or false promises. Our consultation establishes where you want to go.  Our assessment shows you where you are. Then, we can help you figure out exactly what you need. As a new member, we will treat you as an individual. Designed along with your professional coach, your workouts will be just as unique as you are.

We realize there are lots of fitness options in Durham,
and at the end of the day you should choose what fits you best.
