CROSSFIT


What Is CrossFit?

Commonly referred to as “The Sport Of Fitness,” CrossFit is defined as: Constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement. “We’ve learned that harnessing the natural camaraderie, competition, and fun of sport or game yields an intensity that cannot be matched by other means,” Greg Glassman, Founder & CEO of CrossFit, Inc.

We use a 3-Level Programming System that allows our coaches to meet the individual needs of our members exactly where they are at any given time. This is why our community is so diverse!

Our understanding is that the needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind. One needs functional competence to stay out of the nursing home. The other one wants functional dominance to win medals.

  • Level 2: Scaled

WEIGHTLIFTING


What Is Weightlifting?

Resistance training, otherwise known as weightlifting, is an integral component of any well-rounded fitness program. In older populations, it’s important because it helps to increase bone density, which keeps our skeletal system from becoming brittle. In younger populations, it manifests in eye-pleasing aesthetics and the limitless opportunity to safely engage in physical and athletic endeavors!
