COVID-19 and our facility

Our top priority is ensuring the health and safety of our staff, members, and the greater community.  Members are required to use hand sanitizer upon entering our facility, as well as clean every piece of equipment touched during the warm-up, workout and cool down. Additionally, a 618 CF staff member will clean the gym between classes.  We will continue to have reservations in effect to help us manage capacities and ensure social distancing compliance. Non-communicated "no shows" will result in a $5 charge, regardless of class size. Please communicate with your coach and post any last minute cancellations on the 618 CrossFit Members Facebook Page.

Donate to help buy a wheelchair for a wounded warrior

618 CrossFit is teaming up with the Kappa Alpha fraternity at Southern Illinois University Carbondale to raise funds to purchase an all-terrain wheelchair for awounded veteran. These chairs allow the user to participate in more physically engaging activities with more ease than a normal wheelchair allows. Our goal is to raise $6,000, which is about a third of the cost needed for a new chair. Together, with help from other chapters, the fraternity hopes to achieve the joint goal of $20,000. You can donate by scanning the QR code at the bottom of this page or clicking to go to the donation website. Thank you for your consideration and help giving back to our veterans!
