What Is Crossfit

“CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program built on
constantly varied, if not randomized, functional movements
executed at high intensity.”
– Greg Glassman, Founder of CrossFit

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.

CrossFit is designed to increase work capacity across broad time and modal domains. There is no routine, gimmicks, or fads. Just serious hard work and life changing results to those who dare to push themselves beyond what they thought possible.

Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts.

We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our professional and recreational athletes, Special Forces and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed our workouts and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms, and homes.

Getting Started

Because our focus is on the quality of instruction, safety, and effectiveness, entry into our fitness classes is tightly controlled. Clients with no previous experience in similarly demanding training must progress through a series of either the On-Ramp series or private sessions before being eligible for the open classes. These initial training sessions will allow us to both familiarize you with the program as a whole as well as carefully teach you excellent technique for the program’s foundational exercises. This will ensure that both you and your training partners are able to train to your fullest potential.

Clients who do have previous experience may be eligible to enter classes directly. Generally, this requires at least a few months of similar training at a reputable facility or recent athletic training experience. If you feel you’re prepared to enter directly, you may attend one of our scheduled classes, speak with an instructor, and, if deemed appropriate by that instructor, participate in the class in order to allow us to evaluate your preparedness for the classes. If we believe your skill and capacity are adequate, you will be able to begin attending classes immediately. If we feel you’re in need of work, we’ll require you to attend either an Intro Class or private sessions.

On-Ramp

The Intro Class consists of 3 weekly sessions for 4 weeks for a total of 12 sessions. The class curriculum is carefully designed and instructed to prepare new clients for the more demanding classes to come. These sessions consist of exercises instruction and practice, review, warm-up protocols, stretching protocols, and, of course, workouts! Instruction and workouts increase in complexity and intensity throughout the duration of the class, progressively improving your fitness and preparedness for the open classes. Groups are limited in size to ensure all clients receive more than adequate personal attention. These classes are offered periodically; Check our website for the next open class and to sign up.

The On-Ramp is intended for generally healthy individuals with no serious orthopedic problems; if you’re unsure whether the class setting is appropriate for you, please contact us. Whether or not you’re eligible for group training will be left to the judgment of the trainer.

Personal Training

The other option to qualify for fitness classes is to complete a series of 12 private training sessions. The content of these sessions is fundamentally identical to that of On-Ramp, but is even more extensively tailored for each client’s needs. These sessions can be scheduled whenever the trainer and client are available.
In some cases, individuals may prefer or need to remain in private training rather than move into group classes. Such cases include clients with significant health problems, very specific goals, large amounts of weight to lose and similar situations.
