A Chesterfield gym has set a new personal record.

Stockyard CrossFit is moving this month from its 4,000-square-foot gym at 11507 Hull Street Road to a 12,000-square-foot space a wall ball toss away at 11531 Hull Street Road.

“We’re going to substantially increase our space,” co-founder Lindsey Burnette said. “It allows us to branch out a little besides our regular CrossFit schedule.”

Burnette said Stockyard plans to offer yoga classes and massage therapy sessions. The gym has already added CrossFit for kids to its offerings (read more about CrossFit for toddlers in a recent New York Times article).

“Our demographic is more suburbia: 30- to 40-year-olds with small kids,” Burnette said. “Our lobby is always full of kids watching their mom and dad workout; they’ve been hungry to do some CrossFit.”

Stockyard has between 125 and 150 members.

The new space was purchased by an ownership group that includes Burnette for $710,000 from Union First Market Bank. Jim Ashby, a Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer broker,  represented Union First Market in the sale of the property.

Lindsey Burnette, along with Ryan Bauer, opened Stockyard last year.

The space previously held a Pump It Up, a children’s inflatable play area franchise.

Burnette said demand for standard CrossFit classes hasn’t let up. Stockyard has between 125 and 150 members, and membership rates run about $150 a month. Burnette said there at least four other Southside CrossFit gyms, or “boxes.”

“With the CrossFit games that are televised now, people know a lot more before they come to us,” Burnette said. “What you’re really selling is the attention (from instructors) – you don’t want to increase that (membership) number exponentially.”
