What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a fitness regimen developed by Greg Glassman over several decades. Glassman, CrossFit’s Founder and CEO, was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way: increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. He then created a program specifically designed to improve fitness and health.
CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.
These elements are mixed up in numerous ways, allowing for each CrossFit class to be a unique experience and keeping the program interesting to even the most experienced members. Classes are kept small (12 people maximum) and a coach is there to to coach you through the movements to ensure good form and to modify the workouts for everyone’s individual fitness level and ability.
Our classes have different levels (to match your ability).
There are no shortcust on the road to success or fitness. We believe in teaching people the importance of longevity. CrossFit is an amazing training mechanism if it is applied right.
Our brand of CrossFit is an EXCELLENT program with an emphasis on efficiency and mastering movement which all equate to getting very fit. Our standards for coaching are the highest around and each class consists of a coached Dynamic Warmup and Mobility, followed by work that leads into either a Strength Movement or a new Skill. Each class consists of both a Strength/Skill piece and a conditioning piece AKA “Metcon” followed by a brief cooldown.
A note about safety. Some of the movements are complex and every CrossFit workout will test you. That is why safety is always our coaches first priority. Every workout is scalable, so you will always get a challenging worout, no matter your personal fitness level.
What can I expect from a CrossFit Class?
This is a very effective, efficient group class training program that uses the most effective methods to get you real results.
Each 60-minute class consists of:
A workout brief that gives you tips and strategies for the workout, what the stimulus of the day should be, how to best flow between movements, how to scale or substitute movements, and what goals to set for every athlete (which is dependent on your fitness level).
A structured warm up. We believe a good warmup is coach-led and changes every day (along with the workout). Its purpose is not only to prime your body for intense work, it’s also where you practice movements, refine skills, and build those neurological pathways that are so important to overall fitness.
A workout prep for detailed walkthroughs of the movements in the workout so that you can review each moving piece of the lifts/movements and determine scales or substitutions. Depending on the day, it could also include skill or technique work for the associated movements, or loading schemes to prepare for a heavy day. The aim of workout prep is to get a client prepped and doing the exact movements and weights they will find in the workout that day so they’re ready for 3-2-1-Go!
A workout with multiple scalling options so that every athlete in a class, no matter how long they’ve been doing CrossFit or how fit they are, can get a quality workout that meets their needs and abilities.
