Washington State University CougStrong

University Recreation is aware of the statements made by CrossFit CEO, Greg Glassman. These statements do not reflect our values. University Recreation remains a space for all members of our Coug Community to engage in an active healthy lifestyle and we are committed to maintaining this environment. As a result, we will no longer be a CrossFit affiliate.

CougStrong - Community Fitness for All Cougs!

Based on the principles of mechanics, consistency, and intensity, CougStrong involves constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensities. We will work to set a solid foundation, increase knowledge of fundamental exercises, and improve work capacity, strength, and endurance. As a broad, general, and inclusive fitness format for all fitness levels and experiences, CougStrong workouts at UREC consider any physical or unknown contingency.

Whether you are new to fitness or have been a regular patron, CougStrong is for everyone! We scale our WODs (Workouts Of the Day) for both beginners and experienced individuals and guide all patrons toward fitness and fun!
