FORGING FITNESS THROUGH COMMUNITY

We are not selling any gimmicks or quick fixes. If you want easy, then go down the street. We believe in setting a goal, and then training our butts off for it. Our training program is designed to produce extraordinary results, and we will always deliver that in a safe and effective manner. We are 100% dedicated to your overall success.

Our training method which was founded in 2001 by Greg Glassman is backed by science and has been used to train military, firefighters, policemen, new moms, retirees, and 80 year old grandparents. CrossFit is about using your body and being more human. Instead of using boring machines, you will climb ropes, run outside, jump, and lift weights. Your body is the machine!

OUR PROGRAMS

THE FRIENDLY PEOPLE GYM

Celebration CrossFit’s humble beginning started in early 2014. We were located in downtown Celebration, Florida in a tiny 800 square foot office unit (definitely not intended for CrossFit), but we made it work. Our early adopters came in daily for a fun and effective workout. They made friends and forged a community of fitness. They saw tremendous results and felt great. Today we continue to use the same training methodologies, and our founders continue to welcome new faces every day in our state-of-the-art facility!

Kaycie Lipetz

Co-Owner & Director of Operations

Kaycie Lipetz specializes in Olympic weightlifting and nutrition. As a lifelong athlete, she got addicted to CrossFit’s competitive/community atmosphere in college.

She’s passionate about being a great teacher who first discovers how her students learn, and then teaches them accordingly. “Whether it’s teaching someone how to make a delicious Paleo meal or snatch a barbell, I am going to give them my all.”

Born and raised in a small town in Northwest Georgia, Kaycie is a die-hard Atlanta Braves fan who loves everything about SEC & ACC college football, sweet tea, BBQ ribs, and Southern hospitality. She and Erik got married in November 2015, and they are loving life as two young entrepreneurs tackling and, most of all, enjoying life together.

JC Gordon

Coach & Movement Specialist

JC Gordon is originally from Manati, Puerto Rico, and is passionate about seeing people “beat the odds” and achieve great things.

JC started coaching CrossFit “without even realizing it.” He would do CrossFit workouts in his garage, and family, neighbors, and friends would come join in. “I would teach them different movements, program our workouts, and coach them to become better athletes,” he said.

“A few months later, I realized that I was coaching my peers and actually enjoying the work.” A few months after becoming certified, JC joined forces with Erik and Kaycie at Celebration CrossFit and never looked back!
