Deep Well

We all have something that led us to CrossFit. For Justin Fisher, it was golf.

But he never expected to become the owner of Deep Well Athletics, formerly CrossFit Juicebox, in Mooresville, North Carolina.

Since stepping up as owner, Fisher has had to learn a lot about business. From rebranding the gym to launching new programs to simply getting the word out, it’s been a process.
