Our Mission

CrossFit Zen is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit that maintains youth fitness scholarship, community outreach, and nutritional education programming. It is CrossFit Zen's mission to work within the community to build a strong foundation for living an active lifestyle in order to promote childhood fitness and wellness that will carry on into adulthood.

In the current economy and with continued State budget cuts, California schools are forced to cut physical education and/or sport programs. Additionally, school lunches and nutrition programs are also greatly lacking in the resources required to maintain healthy options for its students.  Both economic pressures at home and an ever-changing social outlook on nutrition leaves families misinformed, confused and frustrated on the most sustainable ways to provide for their families.  

CrossFit Zen understands.  We believe that no one should be denied access to fitness simply because they cannot afford it. We believe that sustainable nutrition shouldn't be something accessible to only the wealthy.  

Throughout the year, CrossFit Zen concentrates its efforts on giving back to the local community through hands-on CrossFit training and nutritional counseling.  Each week, we volunteer our services by taking our equipment to local schools and recreational facilities, where we offer our services to those young people who would not otherwise have access to the type of training and education we provide.  Here, we teach kids the CrossFit foundations which include nutritional counseling.

Among local youth groups we serve are the following:

  · Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's Summer Night Lights Initiative

Imperial Courts Recreation Center (Watts, California)

  · DaVinci Science High School CrossFit Seminar (Hawthorne, California)

  · Alexander Hamilton High School Cross Country Team (Los Angeles, California)

  · Junipero Serra High School Girls Soccer Team (Gardena, California)

Our clients' membership fees support us in our outreach efforts.  However, there is a strong need for more resources and you can help.  Please consider making a donation today.  We appreciate your contributions and so do the young people we serve.
