Bladium update

Hello, Bladiumites!  Thank you for all of your support and hanging in there with me during this transition. I have great news to report about changes and upgrades to Bladium CrossFit!


  • Doubled our pull-up and ring dip space
  • Increased our wall ball spots…thank you Ruben!
  • Sound system is upgraded!
  • Racks and equipment have been reorganized into more functional space
  • Hand sanitizer, wipes and bleach are now available (to keep Sarah B happy!!)

Goodbye to crazy shaped lifting bars, trendy back extension apparatus or any equipment for special interests. We will focus on functional equipment to be used and enjoyed by our entire member population.


  • 3 rowers (all other rowers have been cleaned, oiled, and repaired into perfect working order)
  • 9 wall balls (Goodbye to duct-taped ones!)
  • 5 slam balls, 20#

Coming very soon:

  • JumpinRope jump ropes
  • bands
  • bumpers (weights)
  • barbells

I’m also looking into an ice machine for our sore spots (or whatever else we need ice for).


We have added much needed content to our programming. I hope you are all enjoying it along with our O lift and skills program. I’m constantly looking for and researching different methodologies to keep the WODS interesting, challenging, and functional.

Any other suggestions you have are always welcome… always!  I’m committed to continue building our Bladium CrossFit gym into the best CrossFit gym in the state and beyond!

I’ll keep you all posted on further additions, updates, and our expansion.
