What is CrossFit?


What is it?

Simply put, CrossFit is a sport – the sport of fitness. The workouts are constantly varied, high intensity, and founded on functional movement. The methodology behind the approach is empirically driven, clinically tested and community developed. There are ten areas that CrossFit workouts address – endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. These workouts prepare you for life, and since life doesn’t specialize, neither does CrossFit.

CrossFit has been called “The Sport of Fitness” because it re-introduces personal athletic achievement and performance to training. The mindset at the start of each workout is to be stronger, move faster, more efficiently, with better form than ever. This is why even after years of training CrossFit style, scores and times in workouts continue to drop and athletes continue to improve. It’s hard, fun, exciting, challenging, and will push you to be your absolute best!

CrossFit, by design is broad, general and all inclusive. Its specialty is in not specializing, and its workouts elicit a maximal neuro-endocrine response from your body by taxing it to maximum capacity with variety, intensity, multiple joint, full body, and functional movements.

Who benefits?
Everyone! Many professional and elite athletes (cyclists, runners,
triathletes, prize fighters, tennis players), military personnel, law
enforcement (SWAT)…but also homemakers, grandmothers, managers….anyone looking for that next level of challenge in their fitness pursuits.

Try it out!
You can drop in for a FREE WEEK of unlimited classes AND open gym sessions.

Most gyms require intro sessions, or “ramp up” programs that separate new athletes from the rest of the class. I used to do the intro sessions as a prerequisite, but what I have found is that the free week has worked much better as far as getting athletes comfortable with the gym, the flow of the class, and my expectations. I have found that the knowledge retained by the athlete, as well as the overall retention/motivation level has been greater as well.

ANYONE is eligible for the free week, and that is typically where I recommend new comers start. I do personal training as well, and am happy to still conduct a few intro sessions in the event someone does not feel comfortable with the free week to start. I am happy to work on a case by case basis, just let me know how I can better accommodate you, and I will make it work!

The intro sessions and the free week are NOT required. Anyone can show up and join with a membership on the spot as well.

One thought on “What is CrossFit?

  1. Hey I was wondering if you guys needed some coaching help. I’m going to be transferring to CSU in August from Chicago where I have been coaching at a box for a few years. I have been CrossFItting for 4 years now, I’m level 1 certified and am working on getting my coach’s prep. I’m willing to fill any hours you guys need or wanted to add.

    Thanks, Cameron
