CrossFit is our main program, providing you with an hour long, full body workout. Our CrossFit classes are always led by a CrossFit Level 1 trainer. A typical CrossFit class begins with a 5-10 minute group warm up. Then, we move into a strength movement. That could be something with a barbell, like a back squat or shoulder press. We don’t want you “bulky strong”, we want you to gain strength to make your daily life easier! After the strength movement, the class goes into the workout of the day (W.O.D.). Before the W.O.D., the trainer explains and demonstrates all of the exercises in the workout. We make a point to make sure everyone understands and you’ll have time to practice the exercises before the workout begins. Workouts typically take 15 minutes, but can go as long as 45 minutes. After the workout, the trainer guides the group through a cool down. With the warm up, strength portion, workout, and cool down, the class takes 60 minutes.
Every workout is able to be modified or scaled to accommodate the abilities and limitations of each athlete. Coaches work throughout each class to ensure safety and proper technique while encouraging athletes to challenge themselves. The overall outcome is an improved quality of life and ability to perform everyday tasks with greater ease and confidence. Some of the great side effects of these workouts are increased weight loss, strength, greater flexibility, and a feeling of camaraderie and community with the other members of the gym.
