CrossFit Northern Kentucky labels itself a training facility, not a gym, in which dedicated members can find every necessary tool for fitness enhancement. The self-contained "box" is loaded with equipment such as medicine balls, pull-up bars, and barbells, each of which might contribute to the CrossFit Workout of the Day alongside personalized instruction from a certified trainer.
