WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
CrossFit is defined as “constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement.” This means that each Workout of the Day (WOD) is devised to challenge you to use your everyday movements at a fast pace. The workouts are short and always changing so you constantly work all of your body without monotony. WODs are timed or scored to help motivate you and to be measurable; you will be able to see a time or score improvement in a particular workout when it is repeated at a later date.
CrossFit mixes elements of Olympic Lifting, Gymnastics (Body Weight Exercise) & Cardio. One of the things an athlete will notice is an improved overall fitness just from taking part in the WODs.

WHAT IS A CROSSFIT CLASS?
CrossFit classes are typically an hour long and consist of about 15-20min of a full body warm up including some mobility and flexibility work, followed by 15-20min of strength work, and finishing with a Workout of the Day (WOD). The WOD is a high intensity interval training session guaranteed to get you sweating!
I’M NOT IN GREAT SHAPE… IS CROSSFIT TOO HARD FOR ME?
Nooo! CrossFit is completely scalable. This means if you are an elite athlete, you can bring your great-grandma along and participate in the same WOD. You (might) use different weights or slightly different movements, but ANYONE can take part in CrossFit!
CAN WOMEN PARTICIPATE?
Yes! It might seem like a Testosterone-Only-Zone, but CrossFit is an excellent activity for anybody! Anyone looking to increase his or her fitness, lean down, or create muscular definition will benefit from CrossFit.
I DON’T KNOW IF GROUP CLASSES ARE FOR ME…
CrossFit is a community. Cheering each other on helps to motivate and push individuals, especially because WODs are timed/scored. It’s a great feeling to have someone literally pat you on the back when you’ve just completely an intense WOD!
WHEN ARE YOUR CLASSES?
We’ve got classes running throughout the day all week long.
