WHAT IS CROSSFIT
CrossFit is a fitness program developed by Coach Greg Glassman which was designed to improve general health and athletic performance for anyone at any level.
It is an ideal training regime for anyone who wants to get fitter and stronger. CrossFit training methodology includes weightlifting technique, gymnastics skills, metabolic conditioning as well as strength training. We use functional movements that strengthen the core.
Our gym is equipped with kettlebells, medicine balls, barbells, jump ropes and pull-up bars. We go back to basics and work with functional movements. The exercises that we do are the same movements that you use during your daily life. In other words, movements that are useful to you as a human being.
By offering a constantly varied program, you will never get bored in our classes. We offer a different workout every day, in which we vary in exercises, repetitions, weights and duration. This makes our training program not only super fun but also challenging.
We use workouts with functional movements, constantly varied executed with high intensity, to achieve the results you are looking for. Intensity is a shortcut to results, and every workout can be adjusted to your fitness level. Young or old, everyone works towards the same goal, to become stronger and fitter.
With our program you work on improving the ten physical properties of fitness: cardio respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. With this we prepare you for every physical challenge in life.
World-Class Fitness in 100 words:
“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.”
