Class Descriptions

CrossFit

Our infamous hour long group training sessions.  This program works on a year long training plan broken up into 8 week training cycles and 2 week testing periods.

These classes will improve your overall health and fitness through functional movements and a structured class setting that includes:  group mobility/warmup, strength or skill element, high intensity conditioning and a cool down.  

While our goal is for everyone to participate in the group classes, sometimes we recommend starting with private training to ensure safety and long term success.
