Ready to improve your Clean & Jerk and Snatch with two highly experienced Oly Coaches?!? Of course you are!

FX Physical Therapy is offering FREE movement and mobility screenings for ALL IA members on 9/17, 9/18, and 9/19 at Crossfit Federal Hill. More details below!
Our daily activities – work, sport and life – cause each of us to move differently. In a world where we frequently sit for long periods of time and produce repetitive movements each day, you may notice some discomfort or “twinges” of pain during different activities or motions…we often identify this pain as a result of muscular imbalances and mobility limitations. These imbalances and limitations can lead to poor movement mechanics, muscular pain and possible injury aka pausing memberships to IA….
In order to correct or manage these imbalances or limitations, we must identify them. FX Physical Therapy is here to help! As a team of highly skilled doctors of physical therapy (DPT), we are excited to be offering one-on-one movement and mobility screenings, free to all members of IA (these screenings will take place at Crossfit Federal Hill). These screenings will not only help you identify any movement or mobility issues you may have, but also provide you with the tools you can use to help correct them.
FX’s DPTs have extensive knowledge on movement science and its relationship with lifting, as well as several of our own DPTs are crossfitters, too! Please see below for the THREE days/times FX will be at CFH performing screens:
Crossfit Federal Hill is hosting a donations based class to help our friend and member, Siobhan Lydon, raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. As the amazing and strong woman she is, she will be running the Chicago marathon for this cause!
In Crossfit community fashion, we are going to help her meet her goal of raising $5,000 and get sweaty in the process!
Date: 9/28/19 @ 12pm Location: CrossFit Federal Hill Coach: Heather Hatfield
This year I am running the Chicago marathon with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. This charity is near and dear to my heart because two of my cousins are living with this incurable disease.
Growing up, hospitalizations for antibiotic IV clean outs were a regularity for John and Paul, who are now 24 and 21. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was able to set them up in a clinical trial that helped put the life changing drug, Kalydeco, on the market. Because of this drug, my cousins have not been hospitalized in 8 years. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is researching a new drug, called Vertex, that could be the future for CF patients. I have seen firsthand what the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation can do to better the lives of those living with cystic fibrosis. I hope that I can help make CF stand for cure found.
As many of you know, Coach Brittany Priddy and Coach Parker are moving to New Zealand this month! They have both been long term members, coaches and truly an integral part of the Industry Athletics family. They will be missed dearly, but we wish them lots of love and happiness in their next adventure!
We COULD NOT say goodbye without a farewell workout! This Saturday August 17th at 12pm at Federal Hill, we will be hosting a farewell workout for both Brittany and Parker. Come get sweaty and say your “see ya laters” to two loved coaches.

Crossfit Harbor East is a community within one of Baltimore’s vibrant neighborhoods. The Douglass District is a little known area nestled among some of the most historic and famous areas of the city. The borders of the District are from Central Avenue on the west to Broadway on the East, Fleet Street on the south to Bank Street on the North. It is a tiny, but mighty, two block by five block community.
The District has sat quietly for a number of years, but as you look around you can see that this is changing. As the neighborhood evolves, we have an important question to ask:
What do we want to become?
In the past, it would seem that the neighborhood has served as a “gate” between the affluent water front and a challenged part of the city (there is a physical gate on the end of my street where public housing begins). The citizens of the District believe that this is NOT what makes urban centers great. What makes a city wonderful is an expansive and inclusive mix of people!
With this in mind, the Douglass District Senate (our community association) has created a vision statement:
The Douglass District Senate believes urban living is at its best with a diverse and dense mixture of people and a robust combination of residential and thriving commercial enterprises to: house, employ, serve and engage the local and visiting populations. The Douglass District Senate is working to create the most vibrant, inclusive, walkable, healthy and economically viable neighborhood in Baltimore City!
Will you help make your gym’s neighborhood one of the finest in the city?
All are welcome!

We are taking over the harbor to celebrate 2 years since Crossfit Harbor East joined Crossfit Federal Hill to create one big Industry Athletics Family! On Sunday September 8th, Industry Athletics will hosting our second annual duel gym partner event.
Starting at Harbor East, teams of two will participant in the first of two partner workouts. At the conclusion of the first workout, your team will be directed to the Harbor pedestrian path for a ~2 mile run to Crossfit Federal Hill (location of partner workout #2). Along your run, you’ll find an IA coach who will instruct you on a mini challenge to complete before you can continue your run to Federal Hill!
Athletes are asked to arrive at Harbor East by 9:15am for a debrief of the event and for opening remarks. Coaches will review the workouts and provide a few minutes for athletes to warm up before the first heat begins. Heats will go off every 10-15 minutes starting at 9:30am. Registration will close Wednesday September 11th, so that we can send the Heats out prior to the event.
Workout #1: Complete a total of 6 rounds, alternating rounds
15 Power Cleans 15 Front Squats 15 Push Jerks
The second partner workout will not be announced prior to the event start.
At the conclusion of the second workout, all athletes are invited to hang out and join us for a drink at the gym. IA will provide snacks and drinks, so we can continue the celebration at Federal Hill!
Do I need to be an Industry Athletics member to participate? Yes, this event is for Industry Athletics members only. Expections will be made if an Industry Athletics member intends to bring a friend to partner with. Friends should have Crossfit experience for this event.
If I have a bag, am I required to run with it from CFHE to CFH? No, we will have a car on site to transport participants bags from HE to Fed. This vehicle will drive to Fed after the last athlete leaves HE.
Do I get to pick who my partner is? Athletes can either pick their partner ahead of time and register together or they can register as an individual and have coaches pair them up.
Does my partner need to be the same gender as me? No, pairs can be same or mixed gender.
If I parked at Harbor East, will I be provided a ride back after the second workout? No, athletes are responsible for their own transportation. We highly recommend carpooling, scootering, or ubering.
What if we are unable to run, how do we get to the other side of the Harbor? In the event you are injured or unable to run, we will allow athletes to bike from Harbor East to Federal Hill. These athletes will follow the same path as the runners so as to hit the additional challenge. Please note that there is a difference between being unable to run and not wanting to run.
What time will the last heat at Harbor East run? The last heat will run at 10 am.
