What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
How do I start?
If you are interested in speaking to a coach and learning more about our philosophy on fitness and how we can help you achieve your goals, get signed up for an introductory class! New Foundations classes start the first full week of each month, so get in for your intro class to get signed up for the upcoming month’s classes!
Is CrossFit hard?
Yes. But 'hard' is relative; it will be 'hard' for an elite-level athlete, and it will be appropriately 'hard' for an inexperienced or de-conditioned athlete. Nothing worth having comes easy. More importantly, what we do is appropriate, safe, and effective.
What do classes look like?
Each of our sessions are 100% guided and coached. Our classes are structured in smaller groups so that everyone is able to receive some individual attention. At times, we may bring in other trainers to help coach so as to not overlook anyone.
We will always begin with a dynamic warm up. This will usually consist of a few movements that ensure that the entire body is ready for the session. At this point, you should feel an elevated core temperature and maybe have a light sweat.
Next we work on skill moves. These include a variety of motions such as Olympic lifting, body awareness movements, or any number of others that fit into our programming. Coaching plays a big part in this section. Many of the movements we teach will be outside of the average skill set. Part of our goal is to broaden your base, constantly introducing new and different moves.
At this point we begin coaching the workout of the day (WOD). Often, the WOD will incorporate elements from the sessions’ skill work. After adjusting the WOD to each individual’s skill and fitness level, any last minute questions are answered. Then, it’s 3 2 1 GO! And we’re off!!
Do you track progress?
We do not track progress for you, but we offer you free services to help you track your own progress. With our WODHOPPER integration, you will be able to log your daily reps, times, and weights. Additionally, you are able to view the workout for the current day and see how everyone has performed.
How much does it cost?
Pricing varies depending on amount of classes you wanted to attend per week and which program you participate in. For detailed information, please visit our Programs section to learn about the details of each program we offer, and how much they cost.
Are the coaches qualified?
We pride ourselves in the knowledge of our trainers. Each and every one of our trainers are qualified to guide you along your CrossFit journey. We also believe that continuing education is paramount to the success our of members, so we help our coaches get any additional training that will advance their knowledge in the field.
