THE CrossFit Revival STORY

Justin Schardt - OWNER/head coach

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, CrossFit Level-1 Nutrition coach and Weightlifting Level 1 Trainer

After playing multiple sports growing up and developing a love for fitness, Justin Schardt opened Rack City Fitness in 2014 just wanting to create a different career path for himself doing something that he enjoyed. He found CrossFit watching ESPN in 2018 and was instantly hooked to the style of training. Realizing how much his body and others are capable of when pushing outside their comfort zone. After using the CrossFit methodology himself for a year, he decided he wanted more, leading him to take his L-1 to begin helping others discover CrossFit and all it has to offer.

Once the building that Rack CIty Fitness operated in was sold and we needed to move, it was an easy decision to open the first CrossFit affiliate in Somerset County moving forward. CrossFit Revival has changed so many lives in the short time we’ve been around. CrossFit Revival is dedicated to helping others get their life back and realize how much they are capable of regardless of their current situation. We’ve quickly created an atmosphere full of people of all walks of life wanting to help each other succeed as we knock down goal after goal.
