What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that blends the elements of endurance sports (running, rowing, etc), with weightlifting (cleans, jerks, presses, throws), and gymnastics (bodyweight movements). CrossFit uses constantly varied, functional movements, performed at relatively high intensity to achieve remarkable fitness and health results.
Is CrossFit for me?
Whether you are trying to lose weight, stay fit for your firefighter job, or just regain movement and mobility for your daily activities, CrossFit can help you get there. One does not have to be fit in order to start CrossFit, workouts can be scaled to any level. We are about broad, general, and inclusive fitness no matter what your goals or level of fitness.
I have an old injury and haven’t worked out in a long time, can I still do this?
Yes! We can scale workouts to accommodate an injury. Further, by using functional, real world movements, you’ll gain muscle strength around the problem area, making you less susceptible to re-injury while offering pain relief.
What about abs?
Abs work to stabilize and support the body with all movements: squats, deadlifts, snatches, burpees, push-ups, pull-ups (especially the kipping variety), etc. These movement patterns place greater emphasis on the abs working in concert with the rest of the body, and will result in greater abdominal stability than the isolation of crunches.
How do classes work? Can I just come in and workout?
We offer one hour classes led by a certified coach. The classes are structured with a warm-up, a skill portion, and a workout. We are not a typical gym where members are free to workout on their own. Working out under a coach’s supervision yields better and safer results.
Got any demo videos?
