Welcome to Saddle Up CrossFit!
The story behind the name of our CrossFit affiliate.
We are horse people. Jason grew up as a rodeo cowboy and me, an English Eventer (Jumping and Dressage). We live on 55 acres in the country life of Decatur Texas. Our gym is located on our personal property surrounded by trees and open space. Jason and I started CrossFit in 2014 as a way to get in shape. Horses were our life and life was consumed with rodeos, jackpots, and long weekend competitions. Shortly after we got married we started a family and priorities shifted. CrossFit was introduced to us and we quickly fell in love with the sport. In 2018 the CrossFit gym we worked out at closed, so we built our shop by our house and started working out at home. Slowly some of our old CrossFit friends started to come and work out with us. In January 2019, we decided we would take the leap of faith and open our own CrossFit gym to the community. We love the sport of CrossFit and making a difference in people’s lives. We have been blessed with some awesome members! We aren’t the biggest space in Wise County, or the fanciest, but we have the strongest family. Come check us out and see the big heart of our small box!
