always. move. forward.

South Landing CrossFit opened in 2016 in South Knoxville’s Old Sevier neighborhood. Owners Crissy and Shane Glarrow had a desire to impact their community through health, realizing that as individuals become physically healthier, other areas of their lives are enhanced as well. After being married a year, they started to take small steps towards a dream of opening a gym. In 2019, Shane and Crissy welcomed their daughter Addaline into the world, and she has been a welcome addition to the South Landing family and their mission to help others live their healthiest lives.
