The Meaning Behind Omnis


Here at Omnis CrossFit we are awed by its success, which we attribute a great deal to our members, who show up, work hard, and remind us daily of why we love doing this so much.  We want to give our members the best fitness experience we can, while creating an environment where everyone feels welcomed the minute they walk through the doors.

Our mission goes back to the meaning of Omnis CrossFit.  Omni- is a prefix you’re probably familiar with: the word omnipotent means “all-powerful;” the word omnivore means you eat both meat & plant-based food. In this instance, “OMNIS” is just the root word for that prefix; it means “all” or “everything.”  We want to incorporate a more rounded approach to health and fitness. We’re not just a gym, not just a CrossFit gym. We want folks to be stronger AND faster AND more mobile; we want members to perform better and feel better. This is why we are connected to Omnis Integtrative Medicine for medical care, chiropractic care and massage therapy.

Additionally, Omnis – all – stands for who is welcome. The founding members of Omnis come from all different walks of life – stay at home moms, lawyers, bakers, government employees, small-business owners, police officers, teachers, you name it. Some of us played sports, some of us are retired couch potatoes. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all archetype of an Omnis Athlete. We want everyone – beefcake and cupcake, old and young, thick and thin. We promise to never make anyone feel like they don’t belong or aren’t welcome. No matter where a person is in his/her fitness journey, Omnis has a place for them and can relate to them.

Lastly, Omnis is a request, for each and every person at Omnis, from owners to coaches to athletes.  We want your all.  We want you to come in and give us your 100% every class.  We realize that everyone’s 100% looks different, and we don’t fault anyone for that. We’re giving you our very best, and we’d like you to give us yours in return. Everyone has bad days, of course, and sometimes your Mercury will be in retrograde, or whatever. But even on the hard days, don’t ever give up – we want you to be all in.

You’ll notice that our logo, the O, is made up of several pieces. This is to help remind you of our mission: that all the different components of our box & our program are meant to come full circle and complete the vision of a healthier, better YOU. Also, as wedding vows and girls with infinity tattoos like to remind you, a circle has no beginning and end; it goes on forever. This, too, represents your fitness: if you are putting in the work, there will never be an end to the goals and accomplishments you can achieve. Five, fifteen, or fifty years from now, there will always be a way to surprise yourself with how you’ve improved.
