DISCOVER YOUR INNER ATHLETE AT CROSSFIT JAI

The Oldest CrossFit Gym in the Highlands/LoHi/Sloan’s Lake Area

CrossFit Jai opened in 2011 in the LoHi neighborhood of Northwest Denver.

Our space was cozy and created a strong foundation for what has become an incredible community of supportive athletes and friends. After 2 years in the space and a waiting list for membership, we moved to a much bigger space on 19th and Federal and thus began the next iteration of CrossFit Jai.

We have incorporated a non-barbell based CrossFit program called LeanFit, as well as a more complete facility in terms of space, equipment, and shower facilities. Although much bigger now, CrossFit Jai still retains its small gym feel.
