Train Insane CrossFit to open downtown

WICHITA – Cole Warner and Breanna Long hope to take advantage of the fitness craze CrossFit and otherwise with their new Train Insane CrossFit gym.

The two, who used to work for another Wichita fitness business, will open theirs in 7,000 square feet at 235 N. Emporia.

Warner says he was helping his previous employer find space for another gym when he found this downtown space. He says his employer decided not to use it, and he and Long decided they wanted it.

“I like the open view,” Warner says. He says his building isn’t surrounded by others.

“People can see us driving by very easily.”

Warner is a former Friends University football player, and he now is a linebacker coach there.

Long is a former Valley Center cheerleader. She says she was going to go on to cheer at Wichita State University but was injured.

Then she got in on the fitness training craze and lost 30 pounds.

Train Insane CrossFit will have CrossFit classes and some boot camp-style training. Warner says it will be intense but “not so intense to scare people away.”

Cristi Howell of J.P. Weigand & Sons handled the deal for the space.

Train Insane will offer free one-week trials when it opens, which should be in early October.
