CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movements, executed at high intensity. What does this mean? Lets Break it down.
Constantly Varied– The workouts are constantly changing, we have no set pattern to our workouts, however there is a method to our madness. And there are certain workouts you will see again and again over time, these workouts are proven to be worthwhile and help us test for improvement. In short we train for the unknown, we do this by putting different demands on our body everyday.
Functional Movements– an example of a functional movement we do in CrossFit is the Squat. This is the root of pretty much all exercises and we do this hundreds of times a day. What we don’t do is a movement that is completely useless in day to day life… i.e. calve raises.
Executed at High Intensity– Our workouts are time based, this helps us get that high intensity we search for which equals increased capacity and output. This is the stuff that makes us better and makes the rest of life easier.

Is CrossFit Right for Me??
If you are someone who:
- Is looking to get in shape but can’t face going to a gym;
- Has lost interest in your gym routine;
- Thinks you don’t have time to exercise;
- Is looking to get faster or stronger in your sport, OR
- Is no longer seeing results with your current training regime;
Then CrossFit is for YOU. Every workout is different, and since you will rarely do the same thing twice, you are less likely to lose interest or get bored than if you were doing the same circuits at the gym three days a week. Because our workouts are rarely more than 45-60 minutes long they can fit into even the busiest schedules. Perhaps most importantly, since we opened our doors in December 2009, our athletes have seen dramatic changes in their speed, strength, performance, and body composition.
