CrossFit Invictus: Legendary CrossFit Gyms

CrossFit Invictus has earned its place as a legend in the CrossFit affiliate space. For that reason, it’s the first featured gym in our Legendary CrossFit Gym series. Owner CJ Martin first started training athletes in 2009.

Since then, the gym has built an outstanding reputation. Invictus boasts five locations from sea to sea. They’ve sent over fifty athletes to the CrossFit Games in ten years. Affiliate athletes have ten top-five ‘Fittest on Earth’ finishes. Their methodologies, one could argue, are second to none.


Invictus started in San Diego. Their flagship gym, now at a 15,000 square foot location, is one of the smoothest-run affiliates in the world.
