Each day the workout will work to test a different part of your functional strength or conditioning, never putting the focus on one particular thing (not specializing) with the goal of building bodies that are capable of anything and everything that life can offer.
The WOD (workout of the day) will have the prescribed (Rx'd) weights, distances, reps, etc - but can always be scaled based on age, ability and skill level.
If the workout calls for squats with 165lbs but you can only squat with the barbell (35 or 45lbs) then that is what you'll do. Or, if the number of reps is too many, we'll reduce them to work within your capabilities.
The coaches are there to lead workouts, provide feedback, help push you, and to ensure you are moving safely. They will always focus on form first and push intensity second.
If you're interested in CrossFit but would like to try a scaled-back option, CrossFit Lite may be for you. Incorporating all the same elements as CrossFit (constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movements), CrossFIt Lite focuses on metabolic conditioning using lighter weights or body weight rather than the barbell.
Still coach-led, CrossFit Lite is an intense workout. Come try a class and see how challenging it can be!
Fast paced, full-body cardio workout. These workouts are longer and designed to push your endurance. There will be running, rowing, skipping, jumping, burpees, as well as light weights and body weight movements. Looking to increase your cardio? This class is for you.
I have finally found a workout that I LOVE and look forward to every single day!
[CrossFit]..has taught me self discipline, patience, perseverance and positive thinking.
I have seen huge changes in my strength, posture, energy levels and skills since joining
-it is so much easier to push past that last set when you know a group of individuals are right there beside you encouraging and cheering you on
I haven't felt this good for years!
Love CrossFit! It provides the challenge and support I'm looking for in a workout. My teens enjoy the classes too.
