Crossfit Unify 

Who Are We and Why Are We Here?

CrossFit Unify Roanoke (CFU) exists to create an environment that promotes fitness and develops a community where each and every athlete strives to meet his or her goal(s).  We aim to provide a motivating atmosphere while continuously improving the quality of athletes’ movement through functional training and CrossFit methodology.  A primary goal at CFU is to become recognized as one of most effective training facilities in the fitness community.

Emerging after years of experience and interest with CrossFit training methods, the opportunity to bring the pursuit of fitness to the greater Roanoke Valley became a reality.  The creation of CrossFit Unify Roanoke developed from the minds of our team using a CrossFit platform coupled with exercise science to put together a truly unique affiliate operation.

CrossFit Unify Roanoke was formally introduced on May 2, 2016.  Owned and led by CrossFit Level 2 trainer and doctor in physical therapy Johnathon Childress, along with head coach and doctor in physical therapy Logan Russell, the collective journey to promote and forge elite fitness was set in motion.  Combined is over 20 years of exercise experience with shared passion rooted in CrossFit.  Having this passion blended with the knowledge of working individually with various populations, the Unify team is prepared and ready to welcome you into its community.

We provide a distinguished product in fitness to both the most experienced CrossFitters and lifters as well as delivering to the newcomers to CrossFit and/or exercise.  As lead programmer, Coach Johnathon purposefully composes the foundation by which all athletes progress in all areas of fitness, along with improving overall functional translation to real life, everyday tasks.  Our goal is to provide participants of all levels with correct bio-mechanical instruction while simultaneously giving exposure to the constantly varied functional world of fitness.
