CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movement (pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting, running), performed at high intensity.
You will not find any machines – instead, you will find kettlebells, barbells, medicine balls, sleds, and areas for jumping, climbing, and lifting. All workouts are completely scalable, which means that a new participant and a CrossFit veteran can complete the same workout with changes in load and intensity.
Workouts will rarely repeat and deliver phenomenal results. For an example workout check out Today's WOD
Our Crossfit Kids program is not just a scaled version of CrossFit, rather a specifically program designed to be fun and to meet the special needs of kids, that including running, jumping, pulling and pushing movements.
With personal training you have our undivided attention.
This is great for those at beginner fitness levels with little knowledge of workout form and function as well as athletes training for a specific sport or anyone that prefers to workout in a quieter, more personal setting.
