Why CrossFit?

Why CrossFit?

Because constantly varied functional movements, trained at high intensity, best prepare us to express our full physical and mental potential. You can’t even know what life will throw at you but you can be prepared for anything! Squatting, jumping, pressing, pushing, pulling, throwing, lifting are all fundamental movements engrained in human biomechanics. When done well, they express power, both mental and physical. When done poorly, they can lead to injury and curtail health. Learning to deadlift the right way will establish a movement pattern that will allow you express your full physical potential as an athlete in your 30s or a athletic grandparent in your 70s. Picking up a grandchild is the same movement as picking up a barbell—there’s a right way and a wrong way to do both. We teach fundamental movement patterns that are applicable throughout life and keep you in the game as long as you want to play it.

Why Train This Hard?

Our bodies adapt to routine. The purpose of CrossFit training is to avoid complacency and plateaus. We constantly challenge our bodies with high intensity workouts to optimize the effect of our workouts. We spend considerable time mobilizing and performing accessory work to stabilize our joints and strengthen our core so that we can push harder than others push. But remember, while CrossFit is not for EVERYONE, it is for ANYONE! Our workouts are infinitely scalable- our coaches make sure that the senior athlete benefits as much from the workout as a 20-year-old athlete by scaling the movements and intensity to the right levels for each athlete.
