The Ardent CrossFit Story

Our founders

Ryan and Kasey Fulwider

In October of 2013, we opened the doors to Ardent. Our passion for CrossFit and our desire to share that with others ignited the idea for Ardent in July 2012. One year later we made that dream a reality. Not only has CrossFit been an integral part of our lives from a fitness and wellness standpoint but it has also significantly impacted us on a personal level. We wholeheartedly believe in the power behind the CrossFit Community and the ability it has to change your life for the better. We met through CrossFit in October 2011. Both of us had recently experienced significant life changes. With many questions and much uncertainty about the road ahead, both of us walked through the doors to experience our first CrossFit workout with the hope of finding the answers. Not only did we begin to find those answers but we also found each other. A few months after meeting, we began to discuss the possibility of opening our own box, and less than two years later, those discussions became a reality. While trying to decide the name for Ardent CrossFit, we debated many options. Nothing felt quite right. Until finally we came across the word Ardent, the perfect word to describe how we feel about CrossFit. This is our passion. We are ardent in our pursuit of fitness. We are ardent in our desire to share this with our members. We are Ardent CrossFitters and we know you will be too.
