Our 60 minute class is high intensity training at it’s finest. Workouts combine a variety of functional movements - everything from cardio and gymnastics to power lifting and Olympic lifting. Our coaches will guide you through weight training and/or cardio exercises. Every workout can be safely scaled for beginning, intermediate, and advanced athletes.
Our Pump & Burn classes are a great alternative or supplement to Group Cross-Training. It's a one-hour class of equal amounts of strength training (Pump) and conditioning (Burn). PUMP is a total body workout that builds solid, lean muscle. An expert trainer will guide you through movements that utilize dumbbells, kettlebells, and your own bodyweight. BURN is a high-energy cardio workout that will get your heart rate up and keep it there.
Barbell Club is designed to increase your confidence and ability with barbell lifts. In a small class, you’ll receive specific feedback and expert instruction in proper technique, form, and movement. Barbell Club is perfect for anyone who wants to get more comfortable with the barbell or strengthen their competitive edge with Olympic lifts.
Learn how to eat better without dieting or feeling deprived. A qualified nutrition coach will show you how making small changes to your eating habits will lead to BIG changes in your overall health and body composition. You’ll get the education, support, and accountability you need to finally achieve your goals. Most importantly, you will establish healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime!
Compete with yourself and others to become the best version of yourself! Start with a benchmark workout and body scan and track your progress for 90 days. With support from coaches and fellow challenge participants, prepare to be amazed at how much progress you can make.
Personal training ensures that you get coaching and programming that is specifically designed for your individual goals and abilities. It provides a higher level of attention and accountability to ensure your success.

Best coaches, members, and workouts I’ve ever experienced. STRIVE seriously changed my fitness forever and I can’t imagine my life without it. Long live STRIVE!
Great place, not only do you get into the best shape of your life, but you become part of a community, A FAMILY. I have made the most sincere connections in this gym. The goals set/accomplished here are far more than what you could ever find in any work-our session! Come see what MY family is about!
Let me preface this by saying that I would have never thought that I would, at any point, be a member of a Crossfit gym. I've never felt more welcome and supported and after 9 months of being a member, I can't imagine being anywhere else.
I spent years at another local gym. Made progress but wasn't never obtaining my fitness goals. CrossFit has literally changed my life for the better. Within months of doing CrossFit I am closer to my fitness goals than I ever have been. What I also love about it above all is the family type atmosphere at CrossFit Strive. Everyone lifts one another up and is so encouraging. The coaching is top notch. No matter where you are in your current fitness level you can participate in the workouts. If you want a better version of you and willing to put in the work start doing CrossFit now!!!
My brother lives in Bastrop so I drop in here when I'm in town visiting. Always a great workout. Athan and the gang are super helpful and welcoming. Great workouts and great people.
