IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A NEW WAY OF DOING THINGS – IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A COMMUNITY AND GYM THAT YOU CAN BE PROUD OF, THEN LOOK NO FURTHER. THOSE THAT JOIN ARE A SPECIAL BREED.

Become a Karhu Bear

Our purpose is simple: to build the best gym in the world. Knowing that a gym is only as strong as the community that supports it, we are committed to providing world-class coaching, programming and customer service. It is our goal to take people from point A to point B – from where they are to where they want to go. We offer two programs: Karhu CrossFit and Karhu Method.

Less talk, more do.

This is not just a place for elite athletes.

This is a place for people who are determined to improve their fitness and wellness. We provide levels based on your goals, interest and commitment but we strive to form one community. Learn more about our two class offerings below.

Crossfit

YOU DO NOT NEED TO “BE FIT” TO ENTER THE PROGRAM… BUT YOU WILL GET FIT WITH CONSISTENCY, HARD WORK AND SOME FUN ALONG THE WAY.

Karhu
Method

CROSSFIT JÄÄKARHU’S KARHU METHOD PROGRAM IS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE DECIDED TO MAKE CROSSFIT THEIR SPORT.

Try a free week of training on us.

We want to ensure that you feel part of the community and want to become the best version of yourself. One day or Day one? You decide.

Bears Near and Far! - We haven’t posted in a while, and we felt it would be good to catch up with our Perhe today. - Where have we been / What have we been doing? - For the last two weeks or so, we have been focused 100% on our Karhu Community. Facebook, Instagram and all other considerations have been pushed to the back-burner as we have been busy communicating with and laying down a plan for our Karhu Bears to take on the coming weeks and what they will bring. In short, we have been planning and preparing for the uncertainty and fluidity of the situation we find ourselves in. We’re sure you have been too. - So many things have changed in the past 14 days, and we’re sure that things will continue to change and shift in the next 14 days as well. We have moved all of our coaching and programming online. We have checked out virtually all of our equipment to our gym members so that they can have gear to squat and swing in their driveways, garages, and living rooms. - We have set up class times and meet-ups via Zoom, and have organized community communication via email, chats, text and google docs. The health and safety of our people has and always will be our first priority, our community connection and interaction is our second priority, and their strength and conditioning is our third priority. - We want to extend the biggest and most sincere of thanks to all the @karhustrength Bears here at home who have shown us tremendous love and support. The most important thing we can do right now is to come together and help one another. There will be life after the coronavirus, and we will ensure that our community has a gym to return to when the dust settles. - These are uncertain times, but we will not fail now. We will be leaders in a time of chaos. We will continue to provide our coaching and guidance to the people who need it. We will return better than ever. - Stay strong. Stay Well. - 📷 @auburnmedia - #karhu #strength #crossfit #jääkarhu #wearekarhu #perhe

April Athlete of the Month: Nicole aka @nikolo7 •••• Q: How long have you been doing CrossFit? A: A very long time hehehe But I’ve been at Karhu for a year and half lol and that’s all that matters ❤️ - Q: How did you get started? A: When I first moved to Austin I had a personal trainer and he introduced me to CrossFit. I remember doing Fran and Karen in my workouts with him. Then I thought “why am I doing this and not just joining a CrossFit gym?” so I took a leap of faith and tried out a gym it was crazy intimidating - but ended up being the best move I ever made! - Q: What is your favorite movement/workout? A: Box jumps are my favorite movement!! But my all time favorite workout is Grace!!! ••• Congrats Nicole! You are such an amazing, kind human. We are lucky to have you!

Have you noticed? Life is different from what it was two weeks ago. - More time at home, no daily commute, no time spent in the office (for most of us) - things have slowed down. Things have been simplified for us whether we asked for it or not. - What should you do? What CAN you do? - Don’t force a square peg into a round hole. Roll with it. Find your silver lining. Call the people you haven’t spoken to for too long. Read that book that’s been sitting on your table. Clean out your garage. Take time to yourself. Walk your dogs more. Reconnect with your partner. Lay in the sun. Plan for your next business / life move. - These times will try us all. Use them as a springboard into the next phase of your journey. This is not a vacation - this is an opportunity in disguise! The lessons we (might) learn from this experience can advise us for the rest of our lives. - Make the most of the time you have while you have it. This time is as precious as any other, and it should not be wasted. - Oh. And don’t forget to SMILE. - #karhu #strength #crossfit #jääkarhu #wearekarhu #perhe - 🐻

March Athlete of the Month: Brenan Burcham aka @brenanburcham . Q: How long have you been doing CrossFit? A: Been about 4 years now. Give or take a little. - Q: How were you introduced to CrossFit? A: My gf at the time found an on-ramp program at crossfit Eado in Houston and convinced me to do it. I was getting a little chubby and bored with the gold’s gym routine. So I went along with her to try it out. After the 6 week on-ramp I drank the kool-aid real hard and I can’t imagine myself doing anything else. - Q: What are your favorite movements? A: My favorite movements are anything with butterflies or ring muscle ups. (Absolutely despise with a burning passion heavy thrusters) Congrats Brenan! Thank you for all your positivity and your endless “woos”! . #crossfit #austin #fitness #community #perhe
