Horsepower Athletics, Home of South Tampa CrossFit was born out of the union of two successful Bay Area gyms.


Horsepower Athletics is an elite strength and conditioning facility that fully embraces CrossFit’s core principals of constantly varied high intensity workouts to achieve functional fitness for all ages and all fitness levels. We believe that optimal health and fitness go hand in hand, and can be achieved by anyone who wants it. We leave nothing on the table, making sure that consistent training, diet, and lifestyle are all accounted for. We offer daily group classes, personal training, sport specific training, and a community that keeps you coming back for more.

We were created by the merger of two of the best CrossFit gyms in the Tampa Bay Area: CrossFit HAF and CrossFit Ybor. The merger of these two communities and these two coaching staffs has brought a synergy that sets us apart from other gyms. Our coaches, combined, have accumulated over 75,000 athlete hours.

We believe that quality coaching is key to getting results, preventing injuries, and providing an overall experience that is nothing short of motivating and inspiring. With¬†athletes that include moms, professional athletes, business professionals, grandparents, and everything in between, we’ve developed a community that is truly FAMILY. We welcome our neighbors of all fitness levels that would like to be a part of it.

Is Horsepower Athletics Right for You?

What distinguishes us from many gyms today is that although we focus on group exercise classes for our experienced members, we make sure our members have a base of fitness and technical skills before graduating to the group classes. While high intensity is fun and effective, it is important to develop proper mechanics and consistency first. At Horsepower Athletics you have a personal coach to welcome you to the fitness basics, and then our community to motivate you through your fitness journey.
