Largest and most inviting Fitness Community in Tallahassee
Workouts are typically short—30 minutes or less—and intense, demanding all-out physical exertion. They combine movements such as sprinting, rowing, jumping ropes, climbing rope, olympic weightlifting, carrying heavy objects, and many bodyweight exercises. Equipment used includes barbells, dumbbells, gymnastics rings, pull-up bars, kettlebells, medicine balls, and boxes for box jumps. These elements are mixed in numerous combinations to form prescribed “Workouts of the Day” or “WODs”. Hour-long classes at affiliated gyms, or “boxes”, typically include a warm-up, a skill or strength development segment, the high-intensity WOD, and a period of individual or group stretching. Performance on each WOD is often scored and/or ranked to encourage competition and to track individual progress.
Simply put, CrossFit is constantly varied functional movement performed at a high intensity. CrossFit combines a mix of metabolic conditioning, gymnastics, and Olympic weight lifting to get the best fitness possible. CrossFit is described as a core strength and conditioning program used to supplement your profession, your sport or your life. The aim of CrossFit is to physically prepare people for whatever life might throw at them. It is not about following a particular routine, but about constantly varying workouts.

TRAVIS DANE - Owner/Coach
Travis came to Tallahassee in 2003 to attend FSU and throw the hammer for the Track and Field team. During his time at FSU, he was trained by some talented strength coaches and fell in love with olympic weightlifting. After college, he eventually found CrossFit by seeking out a facility that would allow the Olympic lifts. He immediately became fascinated by CrossFit’s ability to get results for such a wide variety of individuals, no matter what level of fitness they currently were at. At that point, he committed himself to becoming the best CrossFit athlete I could and quickly was in even better shape than he was during his time as a college athlete. A short year after my first WOD, RHCF was born.
“My favorite movements still involve the Olympic lifts and probably always will. Burpees, however...not so much.” -Travis

CONSTANCE HOSEY - Coach
Constance has always enjoyed working out and has been working out in a gym since the age of 15. A few years ago a friend of hers convinced me to try CrossFit. She joined Red Hills Crossfit in April 2014 with the intention of staying for one month and now here she is 4 years later as a Coach with her CF-L1. She is an avid attendee of the 6:00 AM class at Red Hills CF West and has been coaching at Red Hills since January of 2017.
“CrossFit is more than just working out to better yourself, it’s the best community and it can be competitive and challenging. The one thing I always tell people when they ask why I love crossfit and why I keep doing it is that there is always something to improve on or something that you can be better at. It keeps you motivated and engaged. The thing I love the most about being a coach is helping people reach personal goals that they have set for themselves. Watching a member get their first pull-up or box jump or hit a new PR on a lift that they have been working on is just the best feeling for them and for me as a coach.” -Constance
