About Our Gym

  • Why Hoosier Athletic Club Is Ranked One Of The Best Gyms In Bloomington IN


Why Us?

Our Core Values

There’s a few things that make our gym unique:

  • The Quality: an experienced, highly qualified coach provides skills, flexibility, & scaling options for all levels
  • The Community: through the coach’s leadership and adherence of our values, your journey will be supported through and through.
  • Sport Integrity: our community is strengthened when others can count on you to do the right thing
  • Accountability: we are committed to helping you reach your goals via our policies and your ability to control what is in your control
  • Diligence: you are committed to reaching your goals, and that means embracing workouts that challenge you physically, mentally, or emotionally.


Do you like to wear headphones to block out the world? Do you prefer to train on your own with little contact with others? Welp, this may not be the gym for you.

Our community is best suited for those who have team-spirit, is a good role model for others, and helps others feel supported, valued, & welcome in our environment.


Your lead coaches are highly qualified to teach you incredibly technical skills, with 10+ years experience teaching average people accomplish above average feats. We will always emphasize that you move well consistently over a period of time before you should increase weights or intensity.


A combination of all of these values, plus our membership and class policies, contribute to your overall accountability. CrossFit classes memberships start at a 3x/week membership to hold you accountable to your goals. QuickFit was designed to be a scaled version of CrossFit that allows for more flexibility.


CrossFit movements derive from sport culture. There are rules for every single movement & workout, and these rules help measure your fitness level. It feels bad to finish last in a workout or feel like you’re not as strong as others, but cheating to hide behind your true fitness level doesn’t fit our values.


No matter how fit you think you are, no one joins CrossFit “Fit.” There will be a learning curve, and there will be times you’re going to want to give up. Be patient with yourself, and allow your classmates to cheer you on if you’re the last to finish. Show up the next day, and keep your routine to get the results you want.

We’ve been serving the Bloomington community for 10 years. Here’s our story!


In 2007, Shaun was introduced to CrossFit by a personal trainer at a local 24-hour gym in Lawrenceburg, a small town outside of Cincinnati. CrossFit was a program that you didn’t want to keep to yourself because of the variety and intensity. CrossFit.com was the only resource for programming, methodology, and movement instruction, and he absorbed all there was to offer to ensure he followed the program safely, as well as learn how to help teach others.


In January of 2009, Jenna had just graduated at Indiana University with a Bachelors of Science in Education and began joining Shaun at the 24-hour gym. When summer came around, they invited friends and co-workers to park workouts. It was so successful they opened CrossFit on the River in September 2009. After a year of working regular jobs full time, plus coaching before and after work, it was on their hearts to move to Bloomington, Shaun’s hometown, and commit to CrossFit full time, and start up Hoosier CrossFit


The very first On Ramp started with 4 members. On Ramps sold out and membership grew to 150+ members. The culture in the gym was starting to take shape: community, quality, accountability, integrity, & diligence became important values for years to come.


This is the year that Hoosier CrossFit became one of many programs at the Hoosier Athletic Club. Moving forward our focus was to provide inclusive services for all levels, all abilities within our Longevity program for ages 50+, QuickFit program for members new to CrossFit, and 6-week focus courses to hone in on specialized strength, conditioning, or skills.
