Why choose CrossFit ___over a traditional globo gym, or a different CrossFit affiliate?

The following features are what set up apart from any other fitness facility, both CrossFit affiliates and otherwise.

Personal Training

What?

We welcome you to join us for a free introductory session. This will give you the chance to experience a CrossFit workout and to get acquainted with our coaches and our members. Prior to moving to group classes, you will complete few sessions one-on-one or two-on-one personal training sessions that will properly prepare you for the demands of group classes.

Why?

Learning movements that are required for improved fitness – movements like squats, snatches and pull-ups – take time, as does improving your mobility, your endurance, your speed and your power.
We used to throw people into group classes right away, but we found this to be a recipe for failure. Members weren’t prepared; they didn’t move well; they didn’t understand their capabilities; they over-trained; they got injured. Or they were simply too intimidated to even show up to a class.
Improving your fitness is a slow process. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses when they show up at our doors. Some members struggle with mobility, others with stability, others yet come to us two months after having knee surgery and need to be tended with care. And on the other end of the spectrum, some athletes arrive at our door well conditioned with an extensive athletic background.
The point is we all have different needs when we start a new strength and conditioning program. It doesn’t make sense to throw you right into classes before you have properly learned the movements. So at our Crossfit, by the time you graduate to classes, you’ll have a good understanding of 30-40 movements, and you will know exactly how to scale each movement if you’re not yet able to master everything.
This also means that by the time you get to classes you will feel confident and comfortable showing up to hit the workout with the group.

CrossFit Group Class

What?

We offer classes at___ on weekdays. And we’re open on both Saturdays and Sundays, too. We offer more classes than any other CrossFit affiliate in the area.

Why?

We know you have a busy and hectic schedule, and since we have more motivated and highly experienced coaches than any other CrossFit facility, we have the ability to put offer more classes than other facilities.

CrossFit’s foundational exercises mimic natural human movement. In group classes we squat, push, pull, run and jump – with or without weight – based on your current fitness level.

Specialty Programs

What?

We don’t just offer personal training and group classes. We offer both seasonal and ongoing specialty programs for members who are looking to work on their weaknesses, or for members who just want to mix it up a bit.

We offer following programs.

CrossFit Personal / Group Classes
Nutrition / Diet Coaching
Weightlifting

Why?

Our specialty programs help members tackle their weaknesses, and they simply provide more options for experienced members who want to try something new.

Facility

What?
There are many elements that go into making a world-class facility. From the training components like having enough space and equipment to practical components like free parking. Our facility has all the necessary components to help you get fit and stay fit for life.

Why?
We use your body and real weights to create free, natural movement. We only have machines that mimic functional movement, and none of those that don’t contribute to overall health and a lean, conditioned body. We welcome you to take a look around our box and our equipment – you won’t see full length mirrors but you’ll see results in your own mirror and in the fit of your clothes when you make the move to functional fitness.

Community Events

What?

The strength in our CrossFit lies in our community. From BBQs to Hallowe’en parties to fitness competitions like the Nutts Cup, our members are more than just fitness junkies.

Why?

Fitness is something that should make your life better; it’s not something we think should dominate your life. We believe it’s important to be well-rounded people who know how to let loose, have a drink and socialize with friends.
And, we have learned that members who are engaged in the community are more likely to want to show up to the CrossFit to workout – because they show up not just to workout, but also to enjoy themselves socially.
