Member of the Month


Shannon Farmer

Shannon Farmer began her CrossFit journey in our March OnRamp (beginner’s) class. She quickly became hooked! Members describe Shannon as determined, a go getter, hard worker, and always positive. While some may shy away from asking for help she is always eager to learn and perfect her skills. As a beginner the air squat was one of Shannon’s biggest nemesis but now she squats with ease and does so very well. We look forward to seeing Shannon continue to improve and grow into the athlete that she is becoming!

Mission Statement

At CrossFit Petal we believe every person has an inner athlete waiting to be discovered. We strive to reach personal goals as an individual but also promote a sense of fitness and community.  We believe by educating athletes on proper movements through skill work and functional movements, we can minimize their risks of injury both during workouts and also every day life activities while increasing strength and level of fitness.  By using this approach there should be no limitations on who can participate regardless of  level of physical fitness, age or previous injuries. This can be accomplished by modifying or scaling any movement necessary.

Through our constantly varied, high intensity workouts, we hope to promote friendly competition but also a sense of camaraderie. Our goal is to have a CrossFit family that is supportive of one another. With motivation and support, we believe everyone will get stronger together, both physically and mentally, so that they may ultimately achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
