What is 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.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. 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 terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.” Courtesy of CrossFit Inc.CrossFit H2O Classes
Elements – The Elements course is a prerequisite for all CrossFit classes, regardless of your current fitness level. You must attend a free Saturday class before signing up for Elements. CrossFit movements are technical and require intellect, patience, and determination. Exemption from Elements requires prior CrossFit experience under the guidance of an L1 certified coach or the ability to demonstrate proficiency in the Olympic style squat, the power clean and the power snatch. In this 9 session course you will learn the 9 foundational movements of CrossFit, complete several CrossFit WODs, as well as learn nutrition basics. Our priority is “form first”: we want you moving well before you advance to daily CrossFit classes. The course is progressive in nature and athletes must complete at least eight out of nine classes in order to advance to CrossFit classes. Elements meets for 9 sessions. Under coach's discretion, this course may be shortened as it is generally easier to cover more material in less time with fewer athletes.
The March Elements schedule will be:
Sat. 3/15/2014 - Sat. 3/29/2014 10:30am-12:30pm
CrossFit Classes – Daily WOD and strength / skill work
