Subversus Fitness is a return to community driven strength and the home of CrossFit Center City. We’re here for athletes who defy convention and expectation. Who value hard work and personal integrity. In each of our classes, you can expect to challenge your body while engaging in an environment that values passion.

We don’t believe in fancy technology hacks or one-week challenges. We believe in being that last gym you’ll ever join because from your first day with us, we’re connecting you to a lifestyle of health, community and exploring the new limits of your body. It’s simple, it scales to any ability level, it’s effective and every minute is earned. It’s Subversus.
