Jääkarhu

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.

November Athlete of the Month: Brooke Gause aka @brookegause ••• Q: How long have you been doing CrossFit? A: I started CF in Oct 2015 - so wow - I just hit the 4 year mark! I wish I would have found it 14 years ago! ••• Q: How did you get started? A: I got started because I was an out of shape, stressed out, mother of 3 who was tired of donating (i.e. paying and not going) to big box gyms and making excuses for not working out. I had friends who talked about CrossFit and had been telling me I should try it. I finally went to a beginners class and was exhausted after the warmup. That’s when I knew I was hooked. ••• Q: What are your favorite movements/workouts? A: Favorite movement: hang power cleans and bench press (I can’t pick one) Favorite workout: Helen & Grace Congrats Brooke! We are super lucky to have you...especially as Karhu’s Welcoming Committee CEO! 📸 @samauburnphotography #crossfitjaakarhu #crossfit #austin #community #fitness

Dogs of Karhu - Brother and Sister duo: Willie Nelson and Cora. - Willie: 1 year old, 55 lb Catahaoula. Willie enjoys all things puppy like chasing squirrels, playing in the mud, peeing on his own front feet and endlessly annoying his sister. The consummate snuggler, Willie is still learning the ropes and coming into his athleticism. Willie will be a puppy forever. 💙 - Cora: 9.5 years old, 65 lb Ridgeback/Staffy mix. Cora is the Queen Beesh. Tough on the outside but a softy at heart, Cora loves walks, food, naps, food, belly rubs and persecuting any/all creatures that venture into her back yard. She’s been through it all, and spends most of her days putting Willie through his paces and/or trying to escape his attempts to annoy her. ❤️ - #karhu #strength #crossfit #jääkarhu #wearekarhu #perhe #dogsofkarhu - 🐻

This picture has some of our oldest OG’s in it. Most have moved on to other cities, other gyms, other lives. Some are still with us today. There are people that have been with us since day 1 (and before) and there are still newbies coming through our doors on a weekly basis. Some come and go quickly: it’s not a good fit. Some stay as long as they possibly can. - This is what relationships are. They come in as many flavors as there are foods in the world. We don’t force anything - when people come into our lives we welcome them with open arms. When it’s their time to go we wish them well and step forward grateful for having met and known them. - No matter who you are, where you are or when you are: if you’ve ever been a Bear, we’re thankful for you. - #karhu #strength #crossfit #jääkarhu #wearekarhu #perhe - 🐻
