A community to motivate, teach and challenge one another

We’ll sweat, laugh and whine together. We’ll celebrate PRs, loudly and enthusiastically. We’ll get stronger, faster, better week after week, together.

Greenville's premier CrossFit and olympic weightlifting gym

Through consistency, proper mechanics and then intensity, we’ll help you achieve your fitness goals — and we’ll have a helluva good time doing it.

If our hearts are ready for anything, we are free to be ourselves. There’s room for the wildness of our animal selves, for passion and play. There’s room for our human selves, for intimacy and understanding, creativity and productivity. There’s room for spirit, for the light awareness to suffuse our moments. The Tibetans describe this confidence to be who we are as the lion’s roar.

  • review rating 5  I previously worked out at another gym that was not affiliated with CrossFit but followed CrossFit style workouts and lifts. During that time I was told to stay far away from CrossFit gyms as they were untrained coaches/owners, not certified, and taught improper form. After being there for about 4+ years, I moved further away and stopped going. One of my coworkers found Lions Road and suggested I check them out. I was a bit apprehensive but decided to give it a shot because it was right next to work and very convenient. From my very first workout, I realized that everything I had been told was completely false and in fact quite the opposite. James cares deeply that you have the right form, you stretch the right amount, and that you have a solid workout. While I thought I was doing well, I have relearned a few lifts and already feel 100% better than I did at my previous gym. If you are looking for a solid gym that cares and teaches the right way to do things, you don’t need to go anywhere. Plus they are just in a sweet location right in Hampton Station! Enjoy a taco or something when you are done. (Just not before or you might regret it!)

    review rating 5  Best CrossFit box around. If you're looking for a box, don't go anywhere else; this place has the best trainers, the best people, and the best equipment. Very sad to leave it, but I know I will be back soon.

  • review rating 5  Awesome crossfit box. This is a great group of coaches. James is great at focusing on form and the best Olympic lifting coach around. I'm stronger and I don't hurt anymore since starting at Lion's Roar.

  • review rating 5  I was in town for business and I am so glad I found Crossfit Lions Roar. To say this facility is amazing is an absolute understatement. I was blown away by the hospitality and encouragement from the members as well as the coaching. Whether you’re in town for just a few days or looking into giving Crossfit a shot, this place is a true gem!

    review rating 5  Coach and owner James Page (who prefers to be addressed by the nickname I gave him, The Machine) is one of many professional, patient and knowledgeable coaches at Lion's Roar. I walked in the door with zero lifting or CrossFit experience, but each coach worked with me to learn the basics of each lift and to ensure that my form was good from the start. I also have a previous history with a couple injuries, but each coach modified or scaled workouts to fit my individual needs. In addition to the excellent coaches, the community at Lion's Roar is very special. I am pretty husky and don't have a lot of experience in a gym environment, but from my first workout to the last, the other members kept me motivated and gave me a lot of positive encouragement. In all honesty, you're not going to find a better environment, or better people to work with to meet your fitness goals - whatever they may be.

  • review rating 5  Love lions roar crossfit!!! The coaches have been very helpful on technique and encouragement to push harder. I highly recommend this gym to anyone who is just starting or is a experienced athlete.

    thumb Mark Smith

    review rating 5  Recently joined this facility after a thorough search of several competing gyms. Head Coach and owner James Page stood out from the get go with him responsiveness and willingness to answer all of the questions I had. They keep class sizes small and their seems to be a high level of accountability. The members were helpful and welcoming! I would highly recommend this facility!

  • review rating 5  OMG, what a cool box! I loved the workout, the community and the location. The equipment was excellent as well. It adjoins some cool start ups and is convenient from any part of the city. If you go, eat some tacos next door after drinking a few beverages at Birds Fly South Project. You will not be disappointed!

    thumb Eve D'Onofrio

    review rating 5  Great coaching, great programming and fantastic facility. The community was fun and engaging. We loved the area of Greenville it is in as well. It's in a cool, trendy warehouse complex with microbrewery, yoga studios, taco shops and more! We had a great workout and will definitely be back!

    thumb A Spinks

    review rating 5  I switched to Lion’s Roar hoping to get better coaching for the olympic lifts, realizing that’s what I really enjoyed after a couple years of CrossFit at another gym. Haven’t been disappointed! James has a genuine enthusiasm for weightlifting and has helped me significantly (!!) with my technique; the community is amazing (even toward people like me who don’t partake in the CrossFit classes ;)); and LRC has oly-specific equipment that most gyms don’t. I’ve hung around the gym enough now to see that James cares sincerely about his athletes and goes out of his way to help them succeed. I also really appreciate the way he runs a class, so that everyone gets one on one coaching with cues and movements that are varied based on each athlete’s ability. Seriously, a fantastic gym - I always look forward to my workouts here!
