For All Who Want To Be The Best Athlete

Dear Friends,

As I get around and meet new people they always ask the same questions; “What is CrossFit Michiana” and/or “What is the big deal about CrossFit Michiana?”

The first question is quite simple to answer actually….

…CrossFit was created to make you mentally and physically better at WHATEVER you do.

The second question can be answered with two different single words;



To become a member of CrossFit Michiana it can be as easy as 3, 2, 1, go …

3. Call our office (574) 261-6268 or email (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) ) and schedule your free intro session today.....

2. From there you will enter our beginner class as an introduction to fundamental CrossFit...

1. We will then review where you are with your current fitness level and work together to determine which of our programs work for you …

Go … Show up!

But first, a fair warning...

So I can not emphasize enough that you should read this entire page through.

I will be the first to say that CrossFit is not for everyone. It literally takes a certain kind of person to push themselves to the level we do here inside our walls; the same level that gets you into the best shape of your life.

It makes you mentally tough … it brings out every ounce of determination … creating a person ready to take action when the opportunity knocks.

Those who have these qualities, these same qualities that may lay dormant deep down inside the individual, but are there nonetheless…are the people I want to help most.

So no, this is NOT for everyone!

So, the big life altering question is …

Who Will You Accept?

First and more importantly than any other point here, it doesn’t matter if you are 3, 15, 40, or 70. We don’t care about your race, creed, color, religious beliefs or your gender. You can look through the pictures, videos, workout of the day posts and the discussion forum here and see we have every type of person just mentioned.

It doesn’t matter what your exercise background is; from couch potato to Ironman we’ve worked with them all.

Here’s what does matter …

• You care about being the best possible you from a health and fitness standpoint …
• You respect others above yourself …
• You have “high moral” standards …
• You treat every one of your CrossFit Michiana family members as you do your own family …
• You come positive, ready to learn and leave BUT, IF & CAN’T outside the door…
• You stay humble by leaving your ego outside with the three words above …
• You are coachable and LOVE being held accountable …
• You want to workout hard, while getting in the best shape of your life, also while helping encourage others to do the same.

If what I said resonates with you, then you have found a home here and is exactly what you’ve been looking for.

The truth is … once you’ve experienced how CFM’s community bonds together for the good of yourself and others, you’ll never want to go back to Gold’s or any other big box gym again.

Now, I know what you are thinking …

“Okay Jim, How Do I Join …
and ‘Oh Yeah’ …
How Much Does It Cost?”

The first question we always here is, “How Much Does It Cost?”

We offer different levels of entry into our CrossFit Michiana family … anywhere from 2 days a week to unlimited days a week, including family discounts. Some levels are less expensive and may be more appropriate for you and your schedule than the “Unlimited” membership.

You’ll get the same high quality workouts no matter how often you decide to attend.

No matter what membership level you choose we will start you with a month long 3x a week class membership called CrossFit Michiana - Beginner. These classes are for all beginners and we will coach you in every CFM move and lift that makes up our group programming. Nutrition is just as important to us and we will teach you the Paleo and/or the Zone diets. These are the nutritional lifestyles we use for maximum results from our intense workouts. And last but not least, we give you your own CFM Success Journal to track your meals, your workouts and entire experience of being a part of the CFM family.

To see a sample of what our athletes are doing, check out this short video here

We will be happy to discuss your specific needs when you schedule your INTRO. But you should know this … WE ARE NOT LIKE Cardinal Gym, ICE, World’s Gym, the YMCA, or any other CrossFit gym.

You are who you hang around and everyone knows that you get what you pay for.

By some standards, entry into the CFM family is quit different than any other gym … and this is so for several reasons:

1. CrossFit Michiana is designed for a very small group of committed individuals who want to see serious gains and improvements in their fitness levels.

There are no 3 sets of 10 or back and bicep day workouts going on here. This is a school of elite fitness … and the coaching here is of the highest caliber. To ask anything less would trivialize something of priceless value. You should be ready and willing to provide support and a positive influence to other CFM family members … and be ready on a moments notice to assist another CFM member at anytime.

2. Although anyone can apply … Many people are simply not ready for this level of opportunity or commitment. Despite being absurdly simple, CrossFit has its critics.

I’d prefer to see only those on the “inside” who are able to take full advantage of the camaraderie this community provides. The “bad apples” will be happier if they stay wherever they are now … and so will the rest of the CFM family!

Depending upon your commitment level to membership, your monthly dues can range from as low as $127 per month to as high as $157.

Listen: You are the only one who can decide if joining the CFM family is right for you …

But let me just say …

Even at the highest level of membership, we are much less expensive than paying for a gym membership and then adding on the cost of other personal services, like massage, supplements, personal training … even group classes.

When you join the CrossFit Michiana family, you have the privilege of training with other serious minded CFM athletes … AND you get a professional CrossFit certified COACH to provide you the highest quality instruction anywhere.

Compared hiring a personal trainer to count off reps and stare off into space at the next “tight body” lady who walks by …

Well, like I said …

“You are who you hang around” … and …
“You get what you pay for.”

What we provide is unique (and although extremely simple), designed for very specific individuals from all backgrounds.

Each CrossFit Michiana - Beginner's class is a 4 week course and is $127.00. After the month, from there you have the option to become a CrossFit Michiana member or take what you learn and give it a try on your own. Either way your workouts will be better, more intense than ever before.

When you experience the difference between what CrossFit Michiana provides you, versus what you’ve experienced at Globo Gyms, or other big-box gyms, you’ll see our service is a bargain!

And in the case of a few of our CFM athletes, they were able to prevent the need for their Doctors from placing them on prescription drugs. And simply because of the way we coached them on eating and exercise.

The main point is this, we offer a complete and radical re-engineering of what it means to be a member of a fitness facility … one that genuinely cares about its athletes … and the athletes care about each other. A place where you can get into the best shape of your life and have more fun doing it.

If that’s YOU (and I believe it is) … I can only encourage you to take “action” before it’s too late.

If you are still unsure, and because I don’t want to see well deserving people fall victim to their own skepticism …

We’re inviting you to call us for a “NO PRESSURE” consultation.

We’ll show you around, answer all your questions, and then make a recommendation for which of our programs is going to fit your situation the best.

At that point, if you decide that CrossFit Michiana is NOT for you, no problem.

There will never be any hard feelings. With a handshake we will part as friends.

There is one thing you MUST know if you are serious about making a change with us.

Most of our members have been around CrossFit Michiana’s community for a few years- since its inception. Once someone walks into our doors and gets a taste of the community, they start bringing in their family members…

….and there is nothing more satisfying than that!

So, if joining CrossFit Michiana’s community, or even better put – family, then I urge you to set your no pressure gym tour and consultation today!

Feel free to spend some time on our site. Look over the testimonials and see some of the comments our athletes are saying daily. We have 3 year old kids to 60 year old men and women who work out with us. And every one of them continues to make the greatest fitness gains of their lives…

… all while having the time of their life doing it!

If this resonates with you then be sure to call me today at 574.261.6268. I look forward to meeting you.
Committed to your success,

Jim Turnbo III

What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.

Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

World-Class Fitness in 100 Words:
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.

You can click on the banner in the upper right hand corner of CrossFit Michiana’s main page or shop direct by clicking here.

Your Goals Are Specific To You.
Not everyone can walk around with 5% body fat. And to be frank, not everyone wants to. But for you to be where you want to be, realize this; it takes work. And a lot of it! There isn’t a supplement, gadget…on the planet that can give you what you want.

The Only way to achieve the body you want is to train hard and eat right.


The good news is there are supplements to help every one of us athletes train hard and get the much-needed nutrition for recovery. And the Progenex line has proven to be just ‘The Sauce’ we’ve been looking for.

To get that ripped look, you have to Train Hard.

Simply put: building muscle takes work. PROGENEX can help.

When you do the lifts, the pull-ups, the squats, the sit-ups, the presses, or the sprints you are breaking down muscle fibers. PROGENEX helps you recover from your activity. And, it provides the supplementation your hungry muscle fibers want, ensuring that your hungry muscle fibers are fed AND that your satellite muscle cells (those “baby” cells that lie outside your mature muscle fibers) are shaken awake—hard, so that they commit to becoming strong muscle fibers, too.

PROGENEX does three important things:

1. HELPS your muscles recover from strenuous training

2. STIMULATES satellite muscle cells

3. FEEDS satellite muscle cells and mature muscle fibers

Simply this: PROGENEX Recovery enables you to train hard and get back into the game sooner. PROGENEX More Muscle builds lean muscle by stimulating satellite muscle cells AND feeding mature muscle fibers

It’s an invincible combination.

Make every rep count. Take PROGENEX Recovery and PROGENEX More Muscle after every training session and see the difference.
PROGENEX: Built for Professional Level Athletes.

PROGENEX products are specifically formulated for the highest level of athletes—both professional and recreational. Today, NFL, NBA, NHL and NBL players alike have felt the PROGENEX difference. Add to that Olympic skiiers, North Pole expeditioners, CrossFit Games champions and a host of other athletes who all say the same thing: PROGENEX is legit.

What does PROGENEX do? PROGENEX Recovery does one thing: enables you to get back to your training feeling and performing stronger after each session. PROGENEX More Muscle is a muscle builder. Together PROGENEX Recovery and PROGENEX More Muscle:

• GAIN STRENGTH. PROGENEX More Muscle wakes up the satellite muscle cells that lie outside your mature muscle fibers. These cells are the ones that have the greatest ability to increase in size and contract with more force. What this means is that you'll be able to lift more. A lot more.

• PERFORM BETTER, LONGER. Enlarging these muscle fibers enables you to increase your performance in events that include sprinting, jumping, kicking or lifting.

• OPTIMIZE BODY COMPOSITION. If your goal is less body fat and more muscle, More Muscle, combined with strength training, builds muscle and burns more fat—up to 48 hours after a training session.

• BUILD LEAN MUSCLE. Maximizing muscle size not only has a direct effect on your muscle-to-fat ratio (body composition), but also causes significant changes in your metabolism, which is measured by your resting metabolic rate (RMR). The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn—up to 48 hours after a training session. Muscle requires more calories than fat—even at rest.

• MAXIMIZE MUSCLE SIZE AND STRENGTH. By promoting your satellite cells to become active muscle fibers, you are essentially attaching new muscle fibers to existing mature fibers, making them bigger and stronger. While not all "stimulated" satellite cells become mature muscle fibers, PROGENEX More Muscle demonstrably increases the number of muscle cells that are stimulated, upping your odds for strength gains.

Optimize Your Training with PROGENEX Recovery and PROGENEX More Muscle.

To optimize your training goals:

1. Train Regularly. Pushing your muscles to the limit on a regular basis sets in motion a chain of activity that encourages muscle growth.

2. Recover Quickly. The first step is to take PROGENEX Recovery. Designed to reset the process that causes muscle fatigue, regular use of PROGENEX Recovery gets you back into training mode fast—usually within 24 hours.

3. Stimulate New and Existing Muscle Fibers. Taking PROGENEX More Muscle immediately after training sends a powerful signal to your satellite muscle cells, which have already been “awakened” by your training session. The active ingredient in More Muscle, Promyosin™ HD, stimulates satellite muscle cells, while our unique formulation of bioactive proteins and amino acid concentrations feed them. The result? PROGENEX More Muscle drives significant levels of growth, a claim that many other supplements make, but cannot deliver.

Properly recovered and fed, your muscle fibers will become stronger, denser and more powerful than ever before. Which, in turn, creates optimal performance, no matter your sport of choice.

Achieve Your Best Body Ever

The PROGENEX ProPack, made up of PROGENEX Recovery and PROGENEX More Muscle, delivers the recovery and the muscle building attributes that both professional and amateur athletes seek.

Everyone promises performance. PROGENEX delivers. Get yours today.
