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 3 FREE SESSIONS to make sure the gym is a good fit for you. 

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 sessions work much better as far as getting athletes comfortable with the gym, the flow of the class, and my expectations as a coach. I have found that the knowledge retained by the new athlete, as well as the overall retention/motivation level has been greater as well.

ANYONE is eligible to take advantage of the free sessions, and that is typically where I recommend new comers start, however, if you there is someone who is absolutely gung-ho about joining, the free sessions are not a prerequisite to joining.
