CrossFit is a fitness regimen developed by Greg Glassman over several decades. Glassman, CrossFit’s Founder and CEO, was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way: increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. He then created a program specifically designed to improve fitness and health.
CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.

Elements is our three-week program which teaches the fundamentals of CrossFit. Whether you are just starting CrossFit or need a refresher, our smaller classes allow our coaches a more hands-on environment to teach and emphasize on proper form and technique. Each class is an hour long and begins with instruction on the basics, ending with a workout that will push your limits and prepare you for the WODs that are ahead. At the end of elements, you will progress with new skills and confidence as you enter our CrossFit classes.
Each of our classes is one hour long and includes a warm-up, mobility work, and the day’s WOD. We highly encourage members to dedicate a little extra time to do additional mobility work and cool down.
“WOD” stands for “workout of the day.” Each day a new WOD is posted to Wodify and our website under the News & WOD tab. The original CrossFit program is characterized by three days of work before one day of rest, though athletes may alter this pattern. The WOD can be scaled (adjusted) to provide a suitable challenge for athletes at any level.
At the beginning of each class, our coaches will go over the scaled options for each workout. Safety is our number one concern, therefore all of our coaches are well trained in scaling movements that will keep you safe and also get you closer to your fitness goals.
