    WHAT IS CROSSFIT?

    The CrossFit Prescription for optimal health and wellness is: constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement. Functional movements are universal motor recruitment patterns; they are performed in a wave of contraction from core to extremity; and they are compound movements—i.e., they are multi-joint. They are natural, effective, and efficient locomotors of body and external objects. Functional movements are required to ensure independence and maintain our quality of life.

    CrossFit is not a specialized fitness program. Rather, CrossFit is a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competency in each of the following ten recognized fitness domains: 

    CARDIOVASCULAR ENDURANCE

    STAMINA

    STRENGTH

    FLEXIBILITY

    POWER

    SPEED

    COORDINATION

    AGILITY

    BALANCE

    ACCURACY

  • Open Gym

    These hours are available for you to come in to practice certain movements, make-up a missed WOD (workout of the day), or get some mobility in. There is a coach on-site during these times that will be happy to give pointers, tips, tricks, support, encouragement etc. They are in the gym to ensure your safety while working through your own “open gym”, and while it may seem like they can be everywhere at once, please don’t expect a PERSONAL TRAINER during this time!

    We offer open gym on Sundays from 10am-12:00pm
