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.

January Athlete of the month: Greg “Mule” Smith AKA T H E @gregmulesmith!!!! • Q: How long have you been doing CrossFit? A: 6 years • Q: How did you get into CrossFit? A: A friend from Dallas recommended I try it. • Q: What is your favorite workout/movement? A: Easy Answer. Any given workout with Coach Taylor.

#Repost @coachwinchester ・・・ Value your health and fitness. Honor your strength and conditioning. - If you’ve ever been sick, you know how debilitating it can feel. Not only are you on the couch with a box of Kleenex feeling like death warmed over, but you’re not able to go to work, help around the house or go to the gym... - Now imagine that’s the way you live. Doesn’t sound like fun to us. So stop taking your health for granted! - Get in the gym. Move daily. Eat clean fruits, vegetables and lean meats. Sleep more. Drink more water. Do it now! - Don’t wait until it’s too late to prioritize your wellbeing. If you think it’s too expensive, you’re in for a shock when you discover the price of being out of work or in the hospital to deal with chronic or serious illness. - We can show you how. - #karhu #strength #crossfit #jääkarhu #perhe #wearekarhu - 🐻

Monday thoughts from @karhustrength and @estradaflys. - 2020 is the year of vulnerability. In our discussions of what we want to do and who we want to be moving forward, we’ve settled on two aspects that we feel A) we can improve on and B) Will most impact and add value to our members, our community and ourselves. These two things are 1) Vulnerability and 2) Customer Service. - By allowing ourselves, and by giving permission to you, our Karhu Bears, to be vulnerable, we will begin to peel back the layers and get to the stuff that really matters. This is how we build the life we desire. - We have also decided to make Customer Service our #1 priority, goal and purpose. What can we do for/with you? How can we share our knowledge and expertise with you to improve your life? Are we falling short of expectations or exceeding them? We expect you to let us know! - #Repost @estradaflys ・・・ That third face is vulnerability. It’s the face that we keep to ourselves to protect ourselves from pain and judgement. It’s also the face that can free us from the box that we keep ourselves locked in. The box where we hold on to that pain and judgement. If you don’t allow yourself to be vulnerable, especially to those closest to you, then you aren’t creating a true connection or relationship. It’s time to let that shit go. Be open to judgement and pain. Use them as tools to grow and develop as a human. Allow yourself to find real love and true connection. I’m sharing this with all of you (who actually care to read this) that this is my commitment to myself. I suck at vulnerability. I care too much about what people think. I am committing to breaking the cycle. It’s time to let that shit go!

Dogs of Karhu Featuring - Kingston and Franki Estrada - Kingston is a 5 year old schnauzer rescue. His favorite activities include long walks through the neighborhood and sitting on the porch watching the squirrels. He takes his job as “guard dog” (very protective of his human and Franki) but he really is the sweetest boy you’ll ever meet. Franki is a 3 year old Chihuahua rescue. She is all of 4 lbs and feisty as f*ck. Her favorite activities include eating/plying with bugs, worms and the occasional dead frog, tug-o-war and her version of fetch (you retrieve the toy from her and throw it). Unlike her brother Kingston, she’s a mean girl and she owns it. - 🐶🐻💙 #crossfit #dogsofinstagram #fitness #austin #community #wearekarhu #perhe

Who is CrossFit for? - It’s for anyone and everyone. All ages. All fitness levels. The CrossFit methodology is designed to build a broad, general, and inclusive fitness program. It is scalable to fit the needs of the most de-conditioned member to the most elite athlete. - The key to success is coaching, consistency and accountability. - “Our needs differ by degree, not kind” -Coach Glassman - #karhu #strength #crossfit #jääkarhu #perhe #wearekarhu - 📷 @auburnmedia - 🐻

It won’t be easy. It won’t always be fun. But it will be worth it if you enter with powerful and precise intentions, an open mind, a need to learn and the will to persevere. - #karhu #strength #crossfit #jaakarhu #perhe #wearekarhu - 🐻
