Crossfit Soar

Crossfit Soar

CrossFit is a workout methodology based on constantly-varied high intensity movements that help everyday life.

SOAR opened its doors in Hawthorne, NJ in 2010 with the purpose of generating an inclusive and non-judgmental community of health and fitness.  Through high-intensity interval training, Olympic weightlifting, circuit training and alternate extreme disciplines. We strive to make your 60-minute class (including warm-ups, skill work and 5-30 minute WODs) the most rewarding hour of your day. The exercise programs involved with CrossFit are thorough and well-established, visit our What is CrossFit section on our FAQs page to see how it can assist you in your personal journey.

During the SOAR strength and conditioning program, you’ll find improvement in your stamina, flexibility and strength. You’ll also become familiar with an array of workouts through our anaerobic and energy pathways. It’s important to have an association of people to lean on, confide in and encourage you to push farther. In our gym, you’ll find an inclusive community, offering you more than a workout; we’ll provide you with a CrossFit Family.

Steve created this gym within the confines of his garage, in hopes of uniting physical fitness with an enjoyable competitive essence.  The start of this gym was in result of Steve undergoing major spinal surgery and needing a healing outlet. The world of CrossFit offered Steve and his companions’ impeccable results in both their strength and wellbeing. Steve has witnessed the growth of his gym from his garage, to a small retail space and now the 5,000 square foot gym.

Dave joined SOAR in 2012 and provides first-rate programming, results-oriented coaching and trainer development. The duo has become an unstoppable team, creating a comprehensive program for all ages, shapes and sizes. CrossFit has given them the gift of health and wellness and the two yearn to pay it forward.  Patrons will experience improvements in the quality of their mental health and wellness from less stress, to improved confidence and natural energy. Experience the life changing results by bettering yourself with the CrossFit SOAR team.

From Steve: “In naming the box, I wanted something that would be inspirational and motivational.  For me personally, I take a lot of meaning and inspiration from eagles and hawks.  I thought the imagery and symbolism was pretty cool, combining the concept of ‘soar’ with ‘beyond your limits.’

One thing I have always been interested in is the artificial constraints folks put on themselves and their performance – be it physical, mental, emotional or whatever.  That’s why the only two words I don’t allow in the box are ‘can’t’ and ‘hate.’  It’s been my experience that folks almost always have a whole lot more potential than they think; they have limits in their mind of what they can/can’t do, and then become a victim of that.  So CrossFit for me, really addresses that head on - just look at someone trying to do Fran when they’re starting CrossFit, and then trying again after CrossFitting for a year.  Waaaay beyond their limits!

So from that concept – eagle/hawk, with ‘soar’ and ‘beyond your limits’ – it came down to the design.  I thought a tribal tattoo style for the wings was pretty badass.  And now – with all that background – why capitalize SOAR?  Well I’ll tell you:

  • I wanted something to stand out and be differentI wanted to inject an element of mystique and curiosity.
  • I do salute my brothers from the 160th SOAR, unbelievably skilled and brave pilots!  With whom I’ve shared some very intense experiences.
  • The little hidden meaning is ‘Special Operations Achieve Results!’
  • Last note – it was my inside joke that CrossFit makes us sore – so a little tongue in cheek double entendre.

Oh, and the orange diamond is from the WWII US Army Rangers.  Cliff-scalin’, machine-gun-nest-bustin’, Nazi-ass-whuppin’, balls-larger-than-life-itself bona fide Badasses!  I’m very proud to have served in the long lineage of US Rangers, who have fought with valor and distinction in every conflict this country has ever had (and some before we were born as a nation).  The Rangers was my proving ground for taking my theories and embracing punishing realities – pushing far far far Beyond My Limits!  So, Enjoy the Ride :).


The Foundations program is where athletes-in-training go to learn the elements of CrossFit. All the major lifts and movements will be taught from scratch with an emphasis on technical proficiency.   If you have no CrossFit experience prior to coming to SOAR, you must take Foundations.  Foundations consist of five to six 30 minute personal training sessions.  At each session a certified Coach will teach you the basics of CrossFit and take you through a short workout.
