“12th State CrossFit caters to all walks of life and all ability levels,” says Kohut." Anyone who wants to try CrossFit out for whatever personal reason -- to lose weight, to improve their physique, to relieve stress -- visit our website. Try us out. It could change your life.”

Located at 807 Hodges St, Raleigh, North Carolina, 27608, inside the 440 Beltline just minutes from North Hills, Five Points, and Downtown Raleigh, 12th State CrossFit promises to deliver a fun atmosphere, qualified and caring staff, 1:15 coach to student ratios and unique programs.

“While I’ve always been athletic, it’s important for people to know that I only started my CrossFit fitness regimen nearly four years ago,” says Kohut. “Now I’m a world record holder. I’m proof that anything is possible with CrossFit.”

Along with a world record holder as head coach, unique CrossFit programs, fun atmosphere and small classes, 12th State CrossFit offers students:

  • Staff of knowledgeable coaches that will go the extra mile to ensure each of their athletes reach their full potential;
  • Sense of community as coaches and fellow athletes will cheer you on during workouts and know you on a first name -- or nickname – basis; and,
  • Measurement of personal progress with Wodify, a virtual whiteboard and “hub” that allow athletes to track and log workouts and diet while interacting online with trainers.

CrossFit is a Life Changing Experience at 12th State
For a limited time, beginning January 2015, 12th State CrossFit is offering a month of introductory classes for a fee of $50 for the month. These intro classes, known as “CrossFit 101,” will allow a smooth transition into the world of CrossFit. Special attention will be paid to teaching proper mechanics and ensuring that new members feel comfortable in the gym. This is a perfect opportunity to experience a CrossFit workout with other beginners in a controlled and safe environment. No pressure to perform and no need to “get in shape” prior to arriving. If you are comfortable at 12th State after a month, you are welcome to sign up for additional classes. This is a no-risk, low stress way for athletes to become acquainted with 12th State training methods.

About Cliff Kohut
Born in Mocksville, North Carolina, and raised in Kernersville, North Carolina, Robert Kohut grew up the son of a gym owner, and naturally became a “gym rat.” Kohut attended East Carolina University in Greenville to study Exercise Physiology and was a walk-on NCAA athlete for the university's swim and dive team. After one year in Greenville, Cliff left to pursue a chance to compete for the gymnastics team at the University of Nebraska. Following his time in Nebraska, Cliff returned home and began coaching at a local gymnastics club where he would eventually meet his wife Hannah, who is one of the skilled trainers at 12th State as well. Through intense training, and the support of loved ones, Kohut was able to reach the 2014 CrossFit Mid-Atlantic Regional competition, where he would compete for a spot in the CrossFit Games. After two days of competition at regionals, he had successfully gathered three “Top 3” finishes, one of which was a victorious first place and regional world record in the Handstand Walk Event (410 feet in 3 minutes).
