CrossFit itself is defined as that which optimizes fitness - constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity. Fitness is defined as - Increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains.
During a CrossFit class, you will initially complete a warm up that will prepare you physically and mentally for the session. Within the warm-up, you will be instructed how to perform various mobility exercise that will assist in injury prevention, increase flexibility and also help you become a much more mobile crossfitter.
You will then be coached how to execute some of the infinite skills necessary for a CrossFit workout. This could range from a simple bodyweight exercise one day, to a complex barbell movement the next. The main part of the session is the workout of the day (WOD), which every member in the gym will complete. The WODs are scaled and modified to each athlete’s level and performed at the highest intensity that the individual can sustain with good form and correct technique.
During these sessions, you will participate in various CrossFit Weightlifting movements. Our CrossLifting programming will develop aspects of explosive strength, speed, coordination and power. Classes are technique orientated, and will cover the basic lifts and their variations followed by assistance movements and squatting to help you become more efficient at CrossFit. CrossLifting classes are held every Tuesday 7:30-9:00pm & Saturday 10:00-11:30.

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that is functional by design. Clients are coached through various movements that help to increase their fitness in a variety of domains, such as cardiovascular endurance, strength, speed, power, agility and flexibility. Movements are comparable to those you’d perform in everyday life. For example, squatting; you sit on a chair everyday, go to the toilet and you need to sit to get into your car. And deadlifting; you bend over to pick up your bag and you move a box from one location to another. Running, jumping, throwing, moving the body in space, all of these are natural to human movement. CrossFit for teens is no different, we just move at a much less rapid pace that full blown adult classes, ensuring movement paths and technique are perfect before adding load or progressing in weight.
