About Us

CrossFit Polaris had humble beginnings. We started in a tiny Westerville garage in 2012 with nothing more than a vision of constantly pursuing excellence in everything we did. We strayed from the beaten path and did things our way, and much like our product, the results speak for themselves. Though we have grown quickly, we have maintained a close sense of community. Our commitment to our clients is to provide a world class coaching staff, facility and community. Our goal is to make the time you spend at the gym the best hour of your day.
