Tell us about your box. I opened Imperium CrossFit in 2011 and at the time, we were the only CF affiliate located in the Houston Heights. We started off in an older warehouse with roughly 1800 SQF, within a year, we grew out of our smaller location and moved into our newer current location with 5000 sqf. Our BOX has become a staple in our local community and we continue to grow and impact lives.
