First 13 Athletics was founded in June of 2014 and has been growing and evolving ever since. Formerly the home of SYR CrossFit, First 13 Athletics has grown into a fully functional performance facility. First, 13 Athletics evolved into F13 Performance in June of 2019, offering group classes using “Fitness With Focus” as their mantra. The strength-based conditioning program created in the house uses the 4 S’s system to build our clients from their core out. The 4 S’s are strength, stability, skill, and sweat. You will experience all 4 of these during the hour small group class. If working with a small group of like-minded individuals is how you like to experience fitness, this is the setting for you. Let us help add focus to your fitness routine.

If group classes aren’t your thing F13 Performance has you covered. Coaches Matt Beckwith, Amanda Negron, and Rob Eschbach specialize in creating specialized programs for individuals based on their goals, individual movement patterns, and capacity tests. Our individually-designed programming includes a 3-5 day consultation and assessment process to create the perfect fitness and wellness program for you as an individual. Monthly consultations with your coach and direct access to them daily make this the perfect program for individuals with specific goals and needs. Nutrition and lifestyle coaching is also part of this process if you want as a client. Think of this as a more personal approach to personal training.

Want a one on one coaching experience? We have that too. Any of our individual design coaches are also available for 1 on 1 personal training sessions. We will pair you with the coach that best fits your needs, goals, and schedule to ensure everyone’s best experience.
