about us

serving the Groton area as your guide on the journey to a healthier, happier self

our mission

We are not just a fitness program. At CrossFit Dýr we are a vehicle for life change. Anyone that has been a member at CrossFit Dýr for more than a few months can testify to the unique environment that is fostered by our coaching staff and our community.

This place has become a “third place” for many of our members outside of the work and home life.

It’s a place they come to unwind, work off stress and know that they can be their true authentic self.

No matter what your background is, your age, race, religion, or political beliefs… In this gym, we are all athlete on the same journey. In this gym we all root for each other. We all push each other through difficult times, we all celebrate breakthroughs both physical and mental. In this gym, we all may look and act a little different but we are all part of the CrossFit Dýr family.

The small ripple effect that occurs from nurturing happier healthier humans, extends from gym life to the world around us.

OUR GOAL:

TO PROVIDE

positive & challenging environments promoting health, fitness, well being & community

JAMES CROMARTY

OWNER & HEAD COACH

I have been in the fitness industry for 20+ years. I have a passion for helping others be the best they can be physically, mentally, and spiritually. One thing I can guarantee is that this place is like no other. I often tell my coaches that people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. CrossFit Templum embodies that day in and day out. We want you to be the best you you can be. When you get with the right people, in the right place, at the right time, miracles can and will happen. What are you waiting for? Come join the Templum Family. You won’t regret it.

SHERI CROMARTY

OWNER & HEAD COACH

A lifelong technologist, I discovered CrossFit when I realized I needed to step away from the computer and get in shape.  Little did I know the impact it would have on my life, both physically and mentally.  Now I love sharing in the journey with others, whether it’s coaching or throwing down in a WOD together.

CLARICE VENTURELLI

COACH

I started my CrossFit journey in 2017 at Crossfit Templum, and have gained many  friendships, business partners and relationships for life. Let’s not forget to mention that I have also gained muscles!

With dedication and hard work I lost about 50lbs. I am surrounded by great coaches and people that push hard for themselves and for others. In 2019, I made the decision to become a coach and lead like they do.

ONE DAY OR DAY ONE , YOU DECIDE.

I am a Christian man, husband, son, brother, and coach. I am a former professional soccer player from Brazil and love Brazilian steakhouses and coffee. My favorite movements are running and pull-ups. Also, I think that the assault bike is evil.
