What does your company do?

We are a cutting edge strength & conditioning company that has three main foci. A 5000 sq. foot CrossFit gym/physical training facility located in the midwest. A growing Internet publishing arm that creates robust, no-nonsense, well-designed customizable personal and group use training programs for web-based and multimedia formats. And in the very near future, we plan on introducing some innovative gym and fitness products. Think CrossFit. Think functional fitness. Cross-training, etc. with an emphasis on strength, physical toughness, intensity and durability. We plan on offering some of these training programs available for download with virtual coaching services available.


The name should not be, for lack of a better term, "cute". We also want to avoid any possible copyright infringement with CrossFit, so no entries that Use "Cross-" or any homonym of that.

Are there specific words or phrases you do not like?

No Cross-" or "X-fit", or anything cute please

Are there specific words or phrases you like?

Do you have other info you want to share?

We envision this company as growing in scope and mission beyond the existing CrossFit brand which is somewhat limited by our association with CrossFit, Inc. also our current name incorporates the local city in the existing company name which makes it harder to take it regional or nationwide.

Brief updates

Most of the entries to date have been combinations of words put together such as "FirstSecond", what's come to be known as Camelback. So far, I have seen very few entries of that type that were very good. Go for one or two words. Simple. Please show me your best work, just one, not multiples. Thank you.

To answer one creative's question we would like to avoid the word "Fitness" in the name. unless We would go rather for something incorporating:

(Company name) performance science

(Company name) athletics

(Company name) strength & conditioning

Thank you!
