Chesapeke, VA

CrossFit Games Champion Ben Smith opened CrossFit Krypton in Chesapeake, VA In 2012. The ten-time CrossFit Games competitor designed Krypton to program for elite competitors but still scale to the needs of passionate athletes of every level. For this reason, Krypton calls itself an elite gym of athletes, not a gym of elite athletes.
