Our Origin Story
Owner, LJ Regine:
“In 2018, I tore my pec, got divorced and lost my job all within about 6 months of each other.
I was at rock bottom – not sure of my purpose.
I had two choice: fall into depression and wail “why me” or I could take action and keep moving forward.
I realized that I was the only one holding myself back from my own superpowers and I had no convenient excuses left in my way to build the fitness experience of my dreams.
RoxFire Fitness was born.
I packed my dogs and everything I owned in my Jeep, drove down to Fort Lauderdale from Virginia and went head-first into creating what you see today.
RoxFire Fitness is about being in command of your life and choosing to succeed. It’s about working hard, getting sweaty and pushing your powers to the limits. Our gym’s culture thrives off empowering each other to break through our own self-imposed obstacles and come out the other side what we were born to be: bad ass superheroes.
Success is the only choice.”
A community full of like-minded folks, who simply want to push each other to be the best people we can be.
“LJ is an amazing all around coach. I came to CrossFit with a triathlon and traditional weight lifting background, but had been "stagnant" for a few years. LJ worked with me to use my strengths to build my weaknesses. He is able to balance the hard work with fun. He makes the tough work bearable. I went from 230 lbs of "dormant muscle" who couldn't do hardly any CF moves or touch my toes, to 200 lbs able to do, or properly scale, any CF movement and flexibility to not only touch my toes, but also a sweet down dog pose! In all seriousness, I fully enjoyed working with LJ as a coach and made great athletic strides.”Joe W
“LJ is an outstanding fitness coach who continually motivates his athletes to achieve continuous improvement, for both beginners and advanced athletes. His work clearly showed in the community he built at Patriot Crossfit, which would not have been possible without a coach who really cares.”Pär L

“LJ's energy and charisma is contagious! As a coach, he is both knowledgeable and passionate which makes him an extremely effective teacher. He cares about his community and will push athletes to reach their highest potential.”Cara A
“When our box announced it was closing, LJ popped over to introduce himself and his box, and to work out with us. Unsurprisingly, as soon as our box closed, most of us who had a chance to meet LJ immediately signed up with him. LJ made the transition easy -- something I personally appreciated. He was always willing to go the extra mile in helping us improve our fitness. More specifically, LJ always made it a point to design the warm-ups to best prepare us for the WODs, and he always challenged us to enter each WOD with a game plan. Join his gym - you'll make a friend and improve your fitness.”Jeremy B
