What Is CrossFit?

CrossFit- Constantaly Varied, Functional Movements, Executed at High Intensity.

CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program designed to elicit as broad an adaptational response as possible. CrossFit is not a specialized fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness domains. They are Cardiovascular and Respiratory endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.

The CrossFit Program was developed to enhance an individual’s competency at all physical tasks. Our athletes are trained to perform successfully at multiple, diverse, and randomized physical challenges. CrossFit's idea on training is typically against the norm, which makes our workouts fun and different. Workouts are completed within group classes with an average class size of 10-20. This provides you with the attention from a 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.

We believe in training for life and not one specific thing. Training for life means that we have to be prepared for the unknown and even unknowable. Our workouts involve exercises that mimic everyday movements so that you can become stronger and more efficient in day to day activities..
