Congratulations on completing the 2018 CrossFit Open! We know it feels good. Even if you didn’t do as well as you wanted, you should feel pretty great about finishing a five-week long competition. It takes a lot of discipline to stick to a routine of pushing yourself to your limit every Friday, and sometimes again on Sunday or Monday. We know you are super eager to start getting after your training, so you can work on all of those annoying movements that may have held you back this year. Lucky for you, we’ve been around long enough to see every single open, so we know the stages people tend to go through.Read More
It's time for our latest and greatest nutrition challenge yet! Be sure to read the details below as we have made some changes.
Challenge Kick Off - July 8th @ 10amRead More
We are making a big announcement with our programming, but we want you to read the origin of our decision first.
CrossFit Deep has always been known as having some of the "toughest" programming around. What qualifies a program as tough varies for each individual, but I venture it has something to do with one or more of the following:
- Daily Exercise Density (how much we do in one hour)
- Movement Selection (regularity of high skill movement)
- Energy System Selection (breadth of energy systems covered)
For the average or beginning CrossFit athlete, a lot of the above can be pretty daunting. Our members know we scale / alter workouts considerably from person to person. Even with this knowledge, showing up on a muscle up and three position snatch day can be tough. This is the first problem we want to solve.

We want to thank you all for taking time over the past several weeks to respond to our various feedback inquiries. We appreciate the comments and suggestions and we want you to know that we care about your daily experience and overall happiness at Deep. We started this gym because we genuinely care about our member's health and athletic development. We are approaching seven years in business and we look forward to providing Dallas the highest level of CrossFit coaching, programming, and community for a very long time.
After spending time going through your feedback, we felt it would be a great idea to show you our business's core values. We want to be transparent with what matters to us so you can see why we put effort into certain areas and also so you can keep us in check if our actions stop aligning.
We also wanted to call out some changes we've been making and what's in the pipeline.

More coaching is better
We have three new iPad sign-in kiosks!
We are changing our sign in process for the gym to give everyone a better experience. Right now all of our coaches are required to take roll. This means individually typing in all of your names into a search box on our phone, selecting the correct person as results are filtered, and then confirming attendance once everyone has been added. If there are any roll issues like mistakenly adding the wrong jeff, john, james, or so-and-so’s membership just ended, the coach must spend additional time on the phone making updates.
As you can see, this starts to take away the attention of the coach from offering you an engaging warm up and overall coaching experience.
We are now switching to a kiosk sign-in process at the gym. Before hopping into class, mosey on over to one of our iPads and sign in for the class. You can accomplish this using a couple methods.
- Type in your email address or the phone number tied to your Front Desk account
- Once signed in, you can choose to have a QR code sent to your phone
- Scan your custom QR code which will pop up in passbook if you have an iPhone
- On your phone, go to our deep.frontdeskhq.com, and sign in to your account.
- Tap your profile photo in the upper right corner.
- Tap Scan In.
- Scroll down and tap Add to Passbook.
- To store the sign-in code, in the upper right corner of the Store Card screen, tap Add.
You can also RSVP for class the night before if you don't want to sign in at the gym or are worried you may be a bit late.
Once you have signed in, join the class!
Coaches will be helping you go through this process over the next week until everyone has it down. To make sure this becomes standard practice, you will not be able to join the class unless you have signed in.
We are excited to spend a lot less time on our phones and a lot more time working with our members!

Monday August 24th from 4-8pm
Hydrostatic Testing (Underwater Weighing) has become universally regarded by industry experts as the “Gold Standard” in body fat testing.
This is a great way to see how far you've come, or set a baseline as you continue to make body composition changes through CrossFit and nutritional changes.
Testing results include three pages with accurate assessments of:
• Lean Body Mass (Muscle, Bones, Organs, Tissue)
• Body Fat Percentage
• Resting Metabolic Rate (Calories used at rest daily)
• Target Goals
Eleven weeks ago we did something completely new and implemented a full squat cycle in our Training classes. There was a lot of volume, it took up a lot of class time, and it got repetitive...
But! Holy crap did it work. The amount of personal records set was amazing. For instance, the noon class on Monday had 25 people and 19 set records. The average increase? 25 pounds! We ran the numbers for all classes and saw an average increase of 23.5# for Back Squat and 15# for Front Squat. We even had some 45# and 50# PRs which was crazy.
For those of you that didn't hit a new record, do not despair. There is so much that goes into a maximum effort lift. It is also important to factor in training age. How long have you been lifting and coming to CrossFit? For those of you that have been training hard and maxing for many years, sleep, training time, diet, and especially mental state can all play a roll in how your max attempts go.
Our programming focus is shifting for the next few months so expect to see some more variety during the week. We will also be shifting what types of workouts fall on any given day. The only day that will remain structured is our Flat Line Friday. Expect to see more benchmarks and testing on these days.
We look forward to seeing how you all perform in workouts with your new found leg strength!Read More
We are so proud of everyone for making it through the 2015 Open Season! For many of you it was your first experience with The Open and we hope you enjoyed it. We know how difficult and humbling the Open can be. Remember not to derive your self worth based on your performance in a workout. Instead, derive your self worth based on how you fight, and how willing you are to put yourself in through tough situations and learn from them. We promise you will look back next year and realize that you've come so far!
Now that the Open is over, we are switching gears with our programming. Here is what you can look forward to.
- New Squat Cycle
- It's time to get back to work on increasing our strength!
- Mondays and Thursday (make-ups can be done on other days)
- We highly encourage you to begin logging your squat days and other important benchmarks using our comments on the website!
- We will be tagging each workout so going back and finding your workout results will be easy
- Get ready to start your week off right
- Get comfortable moving weight around in a wide variety of workout scenarios
- Pool season is here, time to pre-game the weekend properly
- Fun team workouts that everyone can enjoy
Wow is an understatement. The results from this year's Nutrition Challenge were astounding.
We could have picked from dozens of incredible achievements. We saw 40 pound deadlift PRs, crazy improvements on a very difficult metabolic test, and a whole lot of inches lost. Oh yea, did we mention this was all done in 6 weeks!?
Congratulations to Tarah and Jeff! These two athletes were extremely dedicated and the results show.Read More

Oh the elusive muscle up. For many it can be a long struggle to achieve that first successful rep.
We want to help you get your first muscle up, perfect the handstand push up, learn advanced progressions on the rings, improve your strength in chest to bar and butterfly pull ups, and more!
Caitlin and Kevin will spend two hours working through what it takes to get you to the next level with your gymnastics. If you plan on doing The Open or want to make the next step to doing more workouts as prescribed, this is an awesome opportunity to work with two awesome coaches.
