It’s a long story but here’s the condensed version…

Starting out in the fitness industry in 2003 as a passionate volunteer at a local globo gym, Owner Patrick advanced his career through early mornings and long days of personal training appointments coupled with late nights of researching, reading and self-study on everything health, fitness and nutrition.

Over the months that followed Patrick started his own Personal Training business and launched two innovative Group Training Programs; “Ultimate FitCamp” and “Outdoor Summer BootCamp” at a local health club and at Doyle Field in Leominster.

In the spring of 2005 Patrick met Coach Nick, who at the time was an Exercise Science student at Fitchburg State College. What started out as a summer internship grew over the years ahead into a long term career in the fitness industry and a friendship that’s endured for over 2 decades.

In 2007 Patrick, with a great deal of help from Coach Nick, opened up “Ultimate FitCamp”, a group circuit training studio in Leominster, MA.

In the early Spring of 2010 Patrick was introduced to CrossFit when he and Nick completed the workout “FRAN” (in a blistering 12 minutes and 48 seconds! Ouch!!) with steel plates and a wall mounted pull-up bar…

After a solid year of research and studying the CrossFit methodology, and a 3rd studio re-location, Patrick and Nick decided to apply for a CrossFit Affiliation in early 2011.

In the Spring of 2011 the Ultimate FitCamp Training Studio officially became “CrossFit EXP”.

In choosing a name, we always took pride in what we did and in our mission to help serve others in the local community. We wanted to make sure everyone who walked through our doors, regardless of background, age, ability of goals were all treated equally, respected and given the same amazing, welcoming and impactful training Experience. And seeing how the name “CrossFit Experience” was already taken we officially became CrossFit EXP!

Over the past 10+ years as a CrossFit facility EXP has grown into the area’s premier, most experienced and longest standing CrossFit training studio helping beginner exercisers to competitive CrossFitters achieve their goals by living a healthy, fit and active lifestyle.

We realize there are lots of options to consider when choosing a gym and a place to call your 2nd home. At the end of the day you should choose what feels the best for you and your goals, family and lifestyle.

Here’s what separates us! —

All Abilities Welcome!
Are you a beginner? Making Your Fitness Comeback? Or A Veteran Gym-Rat? We are a welcoming community open to all ages, backgrounds and fitness levels. No judgment here!

Our Coaching Team Rocks!
When it comes to taking care of your body you want coaches who are certified, knowledgeable and most of all experienced. Our coaching team holds over 35+ professional certifications, 6 College level degrees in exercise science, fitness management and advanced sciences, and over 30,000+ classes coached.

A Program That Works!
Lots of gyms really mess this one up and just throw together workouts that don’t produce results or even worse give you overuse injuries. After close to 20 years in fitness we’ve come to master the art of balanced, healthy and effective workout programming to help keep you safe and injury free.

We Are Family Friendly!
We’re a family friendly facility offering a free kids play area for our members. Kids can play cars, build blocks, write on our chalk wall, do homework or color. If relaxing and some down time is needed we also have a wall mounted TV with free kids NetFlix where they can watch their favorite show or movie while mom and dad get their much deserved self care in.

To boot – We also have family memberships saving you up to 20% OFF!
