Damon and Priscilla Stewart, owners and founders of Wasatch CrossFit, moved to Utah in 2004 to enjoy the high quality of life, outdoors, and family oriented lifestyle. Damon started CrossFitting in 2004 and in early 2007 founded Wasatch CrossFit, the first CrossFit facility in Utah. Shortly thereafter Damon received his CrossFit Level II trainer certification and the Kaysville facility began to quickly grow.
We were fortunate to add several high level coaches as Eric Huntsman, Carol Wilson, and John Petijohn all joined our team in the early days. Two years later WCF outgrew it’s humble beginnings in a warehouse and moved to our current location next to Layton High School.
Within a year of our Grand Opening in Layton WCF had grown from 80 athletes to nearly 200 and had begun adding programs such as Crossfit Kids, Olympic Weightlifting, beginners Boot Camps, as well as customized nutrition consulting and personal training. Due to our athlete loyalty, high retention, and rapid growth we were forced to remodel and increase our square footage three times in our first year in Layton!
Wasatch Crossfit currently operates out of 6000 sq feet and is fully equipped to train up to 20 athletes per class. Our largest classes have assistant coaches so that we’re able to maintain quality with a coach to athlete ratio of 1:9 or less. We believe this allows you to have an optimal training experience, receive outstanding coaching, and most importantly be safe and stay injury-free. Our 10 classes a day go from 5:30am until 7:30pm at night. Instead of the hype of the fitness industry we offer quality coaching, nutritional consulting, and a strong community of hard working people who are united by their love of challenging themselves.
The Wasatch Crossfit Difference
Along with Crossfit Park City we are the most experienced Crossfit coaches in Utah and some of the most experienced in the United States. Owner and founder Damon Stewart has nearly 5000 hours of Crossfit coaching experience in the last 4 years while other coaches have been decorated for meritorious military service, competed in collegiate athletics, and coached athletes to multiple Olympic Weightlifting national champions. Using our broad spectrum of athletic and life experience combined with Crossfit training methodologies we help people make the leap from ordinary to extraordinary.
Our goal is to deliver a personal training experience at less than a third the cost of personal training and create a community of strong, healthy individuals who work hard, play hard, and have fun! By working out with a coach in a group you’ll push yourself, be accountable to your peers, and achieve results you might not have known were possible for yourself. At Wasatch Crossfit you’ll be amazed and surprised at what your true potential is.
