Is Crossfit for You?
If you fall into any of these categories, then you owe it to yourself to give CrossFit a try: You want to get in shape but can’t face going to a gym. You no longer see results with your current training regime. You have lost interest in your regular gym routine. You think you don’t have time to exercise. You are looking to improve performance in your sport. You are preparing for a physical fitness test for law enforcement, the military or firefighting.
What can I expect when I attend a CrossFit class?
The basis of the CrossFit workout methodology is the workout of the day ("WOD"), posted on the CrossFit home page. The WOD varies considerably from day to day; each workout taxing your body differently, allowing you to push your limits while recovering from previous workouts. Our CrossFit classes are 60 min long and consist of four components: Warm up, Skill Practice, The WOD, and Stretching.
What is a typical Workout of the Day (WOD)?
The WOD combines the following in a constantly varied, seemingly random fashion:
Weightlifting/Power Lifting (Deadlifts, clean, squat, presses, jerks, snatch)
Gymnastics (Pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, handstands)
Monostructural Cardio (Run, bike, row, swim, jump rope)
