Why we started Blue Crab CrossFit

Our History

Blue Crab CrossFit was established in 2013 under the ownership of Ben Dziwulski and Josh Burford. When Ben moved to Japan, he sold his ownership in the company to Dallas Burford. Josh and Dallas have owned and operated Blue Crab CrossFit since 2016. In June 2022, Josh Lopez and Mandy Brezina took over BCCF. Josh & Mandy are/were in the U.S. Army, making BCCF a veteran owned small business. Regardless of who holds the reins - Blue Crab CrossFit was established with the intent of helping people to change their lives by making them a stronger, healthier version of themselves!
Our Mission Statement 

Blue Crab CrossFit strives to create a community of like-minded individuals who prioritize their health and fitness to create a healthier lifestyle, who want to learn and challenge themselves to be a better version of themselves. This is achieved through our Coach led CrossFit group classes which safely and efficiently combines training methods such as Weightlifting, Gymnastics, and High Intensity Interval Training.

The BCCF Community (Family) pays it forward - we give back to the community throughout the year and strive to strengthen and build the community both inside and outside of the gym. 

Blue Crab CrossFit is where individuals go to make strides towards becoming a stronger, healthier version of themselves all while having fun with a group of like-minded and supportive individuals.

Together, we will experience the molt and challenge ourselves daily as a community.
