The beginnings of CrossFit Torque, as we know it today, started around the summer of 2010. My parents were the first to try CrossFit back in 2009, and like most, they instantly knew there was something special about it. After introducing CrossFit to my brother and sister, I finally jumped on the bandwagon; the whole Chace family were now CrossFitters. Strange now to think that I was the last of my family to get started, yet here I am!
The possibilities of success inside of a CrossFit “box” are endless. Rich (my brother) and I felt it every time we stepped into our local CrossFit box — but something was missing. We wanted to call it our own; make it feel familiar and comfortable — an extension of our family. My aspirations to start a CrossFit box and reach more people started to take form, and within six months, on December 6, 2010, CrossFit Torque’s doors were opened.
Our beginnings were quite humble, working out in a small business bay unit, neighboring our family business, Chace Building Supply; and at the time, only having two paying members: our mother and father. We worked just as hard then as we do now to get the word out there about the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle.
Fast forward to the spring of 2013 where we were busting at the seams and needed to find a new place. Soon, we found ourselves breaking ground immediately adjacent to Chace, and built a custom 4000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility. It couldn’t be more perfect: our family having two businesses, side-by-side.
Torque started with a family and continues to revolve around this idea of community. Every athlete who walks through the door becomes part of our family. Our mission has been the same since the beginning: improve the lives of each and every person in #TorqueNation. We do this through programming, using the CrossFit methodology, and training in a professional, safe and fun environment.
We fully embrace the notion of working hard and playing hard. Nothing is more important to my family, my coaches and myself, than the success and health of our athletes, and it all starts in here.
7 CFL1 accredited coaches on staff; their expertise covers everything our athletes (big and small) need: Mobility, CrossFit Football, Olympic Lifting, Yoga, years of Athletic Strength Training, CrossFit Kids, CrossFit Teens.
Each of our coaches bring their own unique qualities and experience to our gym. Mix up your workout schedule and get to know them all!
