CrossFit classes provide each athlete with the best workout, coaching, and program design possible. Each hour-long session starts with a dynamic warm up, progressing to skill and technique development, then building up to our workout of the Day (WOD).

*Constantly Varied simply means a constant rotation of exercises. This does not mean, however, that we just pick random exercises for you to do, it involves a complex set of skills that requires one to be knowledgeable in exercise theory. The concept behind constant variation is to never let your body adapt to any one movement, thereby your body never reaches a plateau. The constantly varied workouts is the backbone of CrossFit and it is what produces the desired results.
*Functional Movements are movements that our bodies perform naturally. Walking, running, squatting down, jumping, lifting items off the floor, and pulling yourself up are natural movements we do everyday. CrossFit is designed to strengthen the muscles and ligaments involved in natural movements, which promotes actual strength, agility, core stability, and flexibility.
*High Intensity is simply how much weight you can lift or move safely over distance in the shortest amount of time. CrossFit's Workout of the Day or WOD is designed to be performed at any intensity level that maintains the proper form thereby producing the greatest results. Therefore, everyone participates in the WOD at there own intensity level. CrossFit by design creates camaraderie within the workout group supporting one another while exercising.
