CrossFit and The Phoenix have partnered together to help bring the benefits of functional fitness and movement to communities across the country. Our community and methodology are effective tools for serving individuals and creating a sober active movement that is accessible to anyone.
Through Phoenix's partnership with CrossFit, we've been able to serve thousands of individuals with free programs across the country. Our ability to provide these programs to individuals who need them is through affiliate owners willing to host us and coaches looking to volunteer and get involved.
Host one-time or recurring special events and/or classes. Classes can be separate from your gym’s regular schedule or combined with an existing one, as long as the community standards are upheld.
Donate your space for an event(s) or class(es) and we’ll connect you with a volunteer coach in your area, once identified. You do not have to have a coach who can volunteer.
By hosting Phoenix programs and/or becoming a Phoenix volunteer, you can help individuals in recovery rediscover their inner strength and make a positive impact in your communityView Affiliate Page

CrossFit Community Centers are inclusive, safe, brick-and-mortar spaces where nonprofit partners work together to provide free and accessible programming for local communities.
Founded in 2012, Adaptive Training Academy (ATA)is a mission-oriented non-profit organization founded and led by a coalition of adaptive athletes, trainers, and physios dedicated to providing high-quality, research-based education and guidance to enable accessible and inclusive fitness training for everyone, regardless of ability.
Far too often non-profits are more fluff than action. That’s not the case with The Phoenix! This organization affects positive change in cities all around the US and Canada on a daily basis. Adaptive Training Academy is proud to partner with The Phoenix in using community-based fitness to accomplish its mission.

Our mission is to remove the barriers that block LGBTQ+ individuals’ access and participation in fitness, health, and wellness to ensure their success.
We are dedicated to nurturing, empowering, and celebrating LGBTQ+ bodies and minds to guarantee that our community thrives.
Partnering with The Phoenix was nothing short of rad. There is just no other way to describe the organization. The Phoenix understands the transformative empowerment of health and wellness. The OUT Foundation seeks to remove barriers that confront the LGBTQ+ community in fitness, health, and wellness, so our missions aligned perfectly. As a panelist, I was welcomed with open arms. As guests at the Boston facility for our summit, we were treated like family. The OUT Foundation has found an incredible partner with The Phoenix, and we are grateful for the generosity, inclusion, and spirit we have experienced with the organization

Adaptively Abled recently partnered with The Phoenix as part of their CrossFit Community Center Initiative. The Phoenix has offered us a new home to run our adaptive fitness and wellness program Adaptively Abled Fitness, Boston’s very first adaptive functional fitness and wellness program run for adaptive athletes by adaptive athletes. In December 2020 we graduated our second class of 10 driven and motivated adaptive athletes. As an adaptive and Inclusive personal trainer and CrossFit Level 1 Coach, I am honored to run a weekly Sunday 10 AM Inclusive Bootcamp open to athletes of all ability levels. Pure magic happens when athletes from all of The Phoenix’s partner programs come together to share some sweat equity and support each other’s recovery.
The Phoenix has become a new home and family for myself and Adaptively Abled. We are proud to be a part of The Phoenix Family and truly believe that we are stronger together!

Over the past 3 years the relationship between Boston EMS and The Phoenix has grown exponentially. The EMT’s and Paramedics of BEMS have gone from occasional drop in’s when I volunteer coach to Boston EMS Health & Wellness having daily classes at Newmarket Sq. This partnership is great for many reasons, but here are two that stand out. First, the space gives the members of Boston EMS a place to decompress. This is their time to bond over calls and life stressors all whilst working out. Second, in a world of “Us vs. Them”, The Phoenix gives us a place where the EMS community and the recovery community collide other than on calls. This helps both groups develop a better understanding of each other and gain mutual respect. During our time at The Phoenix the only thing that is judged is your squat
