What is Crossfit?
Our program is designed for scalability and applies equally well to all individuals regardless of age or fitness level. By varying the load and intensity, we start you at a level appropriate to your fitness and experience. With commitment and hard work, you will achieve greater general fitness and a high degree of athleticism. We take an old-school approach emphasizing fundamental, functional movements with proper technique. You will learn and get fit with ever-changing workouts that combine bodyweight exercises, weightlifting, and a huge variety of high-intensity drills that combine cardio and strength challenges at the appropriate level for each person. The stimulus provided is always varied and the results are dramatic. The atmosphere is one of support and camaraderie to anyone willing to put in the work.
Crossfit Training Explained
Our idea on training is typically against the norm, which makes our workouts fun and different. Workouts are most often completed within group classes. This provides you with the attention from the trainer that is necessary for your safety and success. You will be challenged both mentally and physically in your workouts but will find a great sense of camaraderie with those you are working with.
