WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
CrossFit is at it’s core a strength and conditioning fitness program. Constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity are the foundation of our program. Whether you want to do CrossFit for lifelong health and fitness or pursue it as a competitive sport, the same foundation applies.
BREAK IT DOWN FOR ME….
Constantly Varied – because the unvaried and predictable is uninspiring, unrewarding, and does not yield continuous improvement.
The focus of each class is the Workout of the Day (WOD). The WODs involve combinations of body weight exercises (squats, sit-ups, push-ups), elements of gymnastics (pull-ups and handstands), mechanisms of aerobic and anaerobic conditioning (running, rowing, jump roping, and combinations of exercises), the Olympic lifts (the snatch and clean and jerk), and powerlifting (press, squat, deadlift). We mix this extensive menu of strength and conditioning movements into a program that is scalable for ALL ability levels.
Functional Movements – because weight machines, elipticals, and bosu balls don’t prepare us for what life, career, and sport throw at us
The movements are transferable to real life. Whether it be in our day to day activities, our careers, or the sports and challenges that drive us, the movements feed your life allowing you to go play outside, take on a new adventure at the drop of a hat, and keep you moving for years to come. A deadlift is picking a child up off the ground, a press is putting a bike on a roof rack, and a muscle-up develops strength in the butterfly stroke and breaststroke pullout. Transference from the exercises to real life is key.
High Intensity – because efficiency is king and Intensity is relative for each of us
In Colorado so many of us cherish our long bike rides and powder days. For many, these are weekend adventures after life, career, kids, and responsibilities kick in. For others, finding a balance between your passions with time in the gym is challenging. The beauty of CrossFit is its efficiency. You come in, work hard, and we keep you ready for anything. You give us 3-6 hours of your week and we’ll keep you at a fitness level allowing you to go play outside or tackle whatever life throws at you without questioning if you’re ready.
