Training

What do we do here, anyway?

Rather than trying to train specific muscles or cardio, we train for better movement. We’ll teach you the movements first in personal training sessions, and then up the intensity so that the training can make you fit and strong.

In fact, our workouts can make you even fitter and stronger than you might imagine—no matter how fit you are to start with. Why not come in for a few sessions and let us show you how?

The goal of movement training is critical to quality of life: to maintain or restore abilities such as lifting, reaching, agility, stepping up, squatting (i.e., sitting and standing), and running. Our safe methods of developing strength, range, and flexibility, whether to restore lost movement or to increase an already high level of fitness, allow our clients to exceed their expectations.

Group training

In CrossFit classes, you’ll join a group of workout fans in some high-intensity exercise. These are workouts to look forward to. As in the personal training sessions, exercises are modified as needed so that everyone can do them.

The trainer leads everyone through a warm up, teaches the exercises in that day’s workout, and helps everybody get set up with the equipment they need. During the workout every person is coached as needed. The workouts go fast, and it feels great to be totally wiped out at the end. The workout is different every day, designed daily by the trainer, and coached throughout.

Personal training

You’ll work with an experienced CrossFit trainer to (1) evaluate your needs and establish goals, (2) learn safe movements that will be used in the workouts, (3) understand the CrossFit approach to training, and (4) come up to speed skill-wise in CrossFit workouts in order to join the popular group training classes, if you wish.

We never ask you to do anything beyond your ability. Instead we have lots of ways to get you there through modifications to the exercises. Almost everyone uses some sort of modification to at least some exercises, so you never have to worry about being unable to keep up. Come on in and let us show you.
