On Thursday, December 30, 2021, the owners of Seaward CrossFit gave a presentation to the members outlining the exciting things that are happening with the gym in 2022. Here is a brief summary.
2021 was a great year for member achievements with:
- 8,200 classes attended of which Monday was the most popular

On June 1, 2022, Seaward CrossFit will be moving to its new permanent home at 423 N. Lemon Ave. Renovations will begin on April 1, 2022 and is expected to take 2 months. These are some of the new features to look forward to:
- New equipment
- Purposefully designed for a Crossfit box
- Open all day
- Two buildings
- Outdoor workout area
- More central location
- Cost efficiencies now that we own the building
During the last few months, the Seaward owners have been working hard with Dick Lynch and his team to develop and refine the foundational elements of Seaward CrossFit. This process produced 5 values which define the Seaward experience and describe who we are and what we stand for. Every decision moving forward will be evaluated and assessed according to these values. These are the values and beliefs that we share between our leadership team and our members.
WE VALUE PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENT
We believe success is not found in a mirror: It is inside us. We don’t measure progress on scales, we measure it in hurdles overcome and goals realized. We recognize each other for our accomplishments, no matter how big or small, and get fulfillment from our achievements.
WE VALUE RELENTLESS OPTIMISM
We are the enemies of self-doubt. We believe in ourselves and each other. We know everyone has hidden strengths and untapped potential that keeps us going forward. Positivity wins, and we demonstrate that every day to our members and our Sarasota neighbors.
WE VALUE INCLUSIVENESS
We are an inclusive community. We believe everyone deserves to flourish in a safe space without judgment or fear. We are open to all and open with each other. Everybody matters. We are supportive and welcoming within Seaward and throughout the community.
WE VALUE COURAGE
We know anything is possible with commitment and courage. Through fearless determination, we can accomplish things we never imagined possible. Facing challenges with courage makes us stronger.
WE VALUE SOLIDARITY
We’re in it together. We share our struggles, suffering and successes. We lift each other up and push each other further. We challenge each other to go beyond what we thought possible. We also know a little friendly competition helps keep us going, makes us stronger, and bonds us together.
YOU’RE STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW
We’re Seaward CrossFit, and we believe everyone has the strength to do things they never thought possible.
We are a community of like-minded people who know we are stronger together. With courage, commitment, and relentless optimism we encourage each other to go further and grow stronger every day. We help friends of all abilities find their hidden strengths and celebrate their achievements.
Within our four walls, and throughout our Sarasota community, we’re dedicated to bringing out the best in everyone.
