Want to be a healthy person? It's all about getting moving. Some days an intense workout is just what the doctor ordered, on others something less demanding is best. Whatever the case, we strive to change it up so you're not limited to the same routine every time you workout.
Foundations classes are all about learning. We want new members to have a solid understanding of the movements we use before making it into our CrossFit classes.
Each hour starts off by focusing on a specific skill (how to move a kettlebell, how to lift a barbell, how to use a rowing machine, how to get better at pull-ups, etc.) and then is finished off with a conditioning-based workout where you put some of your new skills to work.
These classes are focused on building your skill set, but are also where we develop your base level of stamina.
Our CrossFit program is designed not only to give you a challenging workout (it does that, trust us), but also to build on the skills you developed in Foundations and to continue pushing you to be a stronger, more capable person. Classes are one hour long and combine elements of gymnastics, weight lifting, and conditioning (running, rowing, etc.)
Workouts are created by us to best fit the needs of our members, and are different from day-to-day so you're always facing a new challenge. There are multiple tiers of weights and movements available, so we are able to productively cater to those new to CrossFit as well as those who have been with us for years.
We believe that you should do something active every day of your life. Sometimes that means getting after a hard workout and sometimes it means the exact opposite. Our Yoga program is designed to counter the intensity and challenge in CrossFit by providing an opportunity to move your body without further taxing it. No yoga experience? No problem. Come to class a few minutes early so our staff can talk you through how to get the most out of the hour. Everyone starts somewhere - we're here to help!
Vinyasa: Vinyasa links breath to movement and combines sun salutations, breath-work (pranayama), and standing/seated postures to energize the body and quiet the mind.
Yinyasa: The first 30 minutes of this class are dedicated to standard vinyasa. Once the muscles are warm, we shift into the second 30 minutes of class, which is dedicated to yin. Yin yoga is calming to the central nervous system and gently opens connective tissue and fascia.
We begin and end each of our camps with a test of push-ups, squats, and sit-ups to measure our people's progress as they get better (because that's exactly what we've seen happen). Not only was our last group able to significantly improve their technique, but they were able to increase their capacity an average of 43%! Statistics are silly and boring, but the bottom line is that the progress every participant saw was measured, and is real.
Each camp is closely monitored by a coach, so every member gets individual corrections and encouragement in each class. Our staff not only offers a thorough schooling on what proper technique is all about, but also shows you that you're way more capable than you might have ever guessed.
Classes begin with a warm-up, progress through some skill building, get after a workout of varying formats, then send you on your way after some workout recovery (think foam rolling, stretching, and all the other stuff you know you need to be doing!).
