Crossfit Speciality Classes

Competitor’s Class – Coach Rich

The Competitor’s Class is designed to take committed athletes to the next level and make them great CrossFit athletes. Our focus will be on the more complex movements found in CrossFit. Training and programming will be catered to upcoming events/competitions (Flex, The Open, etc.). Our goal is to increase strength, flexibility, explosiveness, aerobic capacity and overall skill level.  Each class will focus on a different movement introducing it to those who are new to the skill and making the advance athlete more efficient.  A few examples of the movements we’ll focus on are:

High-Skill Gymnastics: Handstand Push Ups, Muscle Ups (Bar & Ring), Pistols, Toes-to-Bar, Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups, etc.

Olympic Weightlifting: Snatch, Clean, and Jerk.  Both the full lifts as well as progressions, variations, and ancillary lifts.

Skill Movements: Double Unders, Rope Climbs, and Handstand Walking

Times:

  • Sunday 10-11am

CrossFit Endurance Class – Coach Jenni

CrossFit Endurance (CFE) is an endurance sports training program dedicated to improving performance, fitness and endurance sports potential. We follow the CrossFit model while adding precise training for endurance and keeping things constantly varied. With careful planning, our conditioning plan increases performance while decreasing recovery time, reducing injury and promoting preservation of lean tissue. We focus on eliminating unnecessary volume of training while increasing intensity. The programming is structured and seamlessly integrated with the CF Olympic lifts, gymnastics movements, explosive activity and mobility-based support. Our classes are held at the box or various different locations such as local tracks and parks.

Who is it for?

Competitive Endurance Athletes:  Regardless of your sport, the CFE prescription can be adjusted to create a more physically powerful and mentally resilient you. If you’ve been competing in Triathlons, Marathons or Ironman’s you know the value of good planning and good coaching.

Beginning Endurance Athletes:  CFE is an excellent choice for those looking to experiment with endurance events of all kinds for the first time (Want to run your first 5k?  Your first Marathon?).

If you are new to a race, a sport, or training in general, we can help you can grow and accomplish those goals

CrossFit Athletes:   If you dread seeing running or rowing on the board and simply want to build that engine to have a better Fran time, then give it a try.
