We know that some of you have some concerns about the CrossFit Program, that you might be intimated by what you’ve seen on ESPN or online. We want you to know we are worried you might be thinking CrossFit is only for people who are already in great shape or that you can’t do CrossFit. We’re worried because that simply isn’t true.
CROSSFIT IS FOR EVERYONE
The bottom line is CrossFit works and it’s fun. Not to mention, you deserve to be in amazing shape (whatever that means to you). So we had the idea to create CrossFit classes for folks just like you with those concerns, so you can sort of tip toe your way in.
“Lite” is a simple, intense and fun 45-60 minute conditioning/weight loss focused program. THIS IS NOT BOOTCAMP…it’s very important that we stay true to the roots of the CrossFit class experience. You can expect a warm-up where a coach will prepare you for everything you will do in your WOD (Work Out of the Day) and that they will be with you every step of the way. You will be challenged but we won’t throw anything at you that you can’t handle.
The “Lite” classes will exclude our more challenging CrossFit movements, so you won’t be doing handstand pushups, muscle ups, rope climbs, Olympic lifts or the like. You will be doing the basic cardio and bodyweight movements like pushups, air squats, sit-ups, running, jump rope, etc. We will also throw in some medicine ball, kettle-bell and empty barbell exercises, but the focus will not be on strength. We will focus on endurance, flexibility and stamina.
We want you to know that the “Lite” classes are a starting point. The goal is eventually, when your ready, to progress you into doing full CrossFit WOD classes where we will add more weightlifting and more advanced exercises. We want you to do this so you have a balanced fitness that’s challenging all aspects of the CrossFit program.
