Memphis' Original CrossFit Box

Welcome to Faction Strength and Conditioning. If you’re visiting our site for the first time, chances are you’re ready to really, seriously, finally get in shape. Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve designed our training system to really, seriously and finally get you to make fitness a part of your life – not just an occasional pit stop. We do this with our Faction fitness methodology – a hybrid of traditional personal training and CrossFit.

We believe that in order for you to make coming into our gym one of the best parts of your day, we need to identify your true personal goals and create a tailored game plan just for you which still allows you to train in that great communal setting that CrossFit Memphis is known for.

We also understand that functional fitness may seem intimidating if you’ve never done it before, which is why we will first enroll you in Faction Fundamentals, a beginners course we developed for people who are new to CrossFit. Faction Fundamentals has been so effective in on-ramping new members that it has been duplicated at dozens of other CrossFit boxes across the U.S. This makes us very happy. Our mission is to change lives, and we’re thrilled that our reach can expand so much farther than the immediate Memphis area.
