CrossFit Crescent forges elite fitness for Amman’s finest professionals, parents, kids, athletes, and Jordan’s elite Special Forces.
Location: Moussa An-Nehar St. (between 8th Circle & Arab Revolt circle)
My review: I attended a session at CrossFit Crescent and really enjoyed the ambiance. Their location is within a huge sporting complex attached to outdoor soccer fields, giving it a wide-open feel and not the cramped gym experience. I was very warmly welcomed by the staff and they took me through step-by-step to make sure I was following along and not left to fend for my own, or worse yet, end up hurting myself. I definitely recommend CrossFit Crescent to anyone wishing to practice this sport, whether you’re a beginner or quite advanced in your practice.
CrossFit QuickSand is the first CrossFit box in Jordan.
Location: 201 Arar Street (Wadi Saqra) Next to Haddad Plaza
