Who We Are


CrossFit Black Knight is an operated affiliate of CrossFit HQ ( and is owned and operated by husband and wife who are also both firefighters; Anthony Dannar and Elinda Dannar. We are a school….not just another gym to get your workout in. Why? Simple, it’s a place to learn and grow, to improve your body and your mind; to become knowledgeable in the mechanics, strengths and limitations of your own body. At CrossFit Black Knight, we require you to think, to use your brain as well as your muscles. This enables you to learn and challenge yourself, to try new things and accomplish things you never thought possible. We teach you how to move your body with proper mechanics, to get stronger and faster, to increase your power output, to increases your endurance and stamina, to get flexible, stable, be able to balance, and to move with grace and agility. CrossFit Black Knight is for anyone who is serious about becoming more fit, whether their goal is to live a longer healthier life, be better prepared for their job and life’s daily demands, or improve their athleticism. Our programs are designed to get you in the best shape of your life, under the guidance of our highly skilled coaches. No more wandering around the gym wondering what to do, endless hours running on a treadmill, or months of using the same machines without seeing real results. At CrossFit Black Knight you’ll be guided and coached every step of the way through unique and structured workouts that will get you fit, fast. As trainers, our goal is to provide an encouraging, supportive and intense atmosphere for you to become fit.
