Bringing fitness and authentic community to Nashville.

Since 2012, 5402 Charlotte Avenue has served up fitness to the West Nashville area. In the fall of 2017, longtime member and coach, Nick Freije, became owner and operator, seeking to build upon the strong foundation and community previously known as CrossFit Barefoot. Early in 2018, CrossFit Breakthrough was born.

Who we are

We are a strength and conditioning facility in west Nashville, TN bringing fitness, health, and authentic community to people of all ages and ability levels.

What's our mission

Our mission is in the name. We are here to identify and conquer any obstacle or hindrance preventing an individual from reaching their maximum potential – in fitness, and in life. Building a healthy, functional body is crucial to happiness and longevity, but we believe our community is here to do more than just improve physical well-being.

What makes us different

This gym is intended to be a force for good, inside and outside the walls – for members, and for the city. CrossFit Breakthrough is a place of inclusivity, encouragement, and improvement. Community is the key; we are better and go further together.

How we do it

Physical plateaus, life struggles, whatever the issue – wherever or whoever you are – we want to offer what we can to help you reach the next level. We believe here you’ll find fitness, authentic relationships, and fun.
