Our Classes

WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
CrossFit is a lifestyle characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance. The program works for everyone — people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years.
WHY DOES CROSSFIT WORK?
The magic is in the movement, the art is in the programming, the science is in the explanation, and the fun is in the community.
WHAT IS SCALING?
Scaling is the system we use for adjusting the workout difficulty to your level.  All classes feature warmups, instruction, customization and scaling for Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Athletes (Rx).
DO I NEED TO BE IN SHAPE TO START CROSSFIT?
No. CrossFit is the program that will get you in shape. No matter what your current fitness level is, you can start CrossFit. As you become fitter, workouts will become more challenging. Every workout is designed to help you succeed, improve your fitness, and move you toward your goals.
WHAT IS CROSSFIT FOUNDATIONS?
Foundations is our beginner-friendly private training program. You’ll work one-on-one with a coach to learn the foundational exercises of CrossFit. The workouts will be scaled to you.
WHY IS THE COMMUNITY SO IMPORTANT?
Joining a CrossFit gym is like joining a team. The CrossFit Community is greater than any individual person or coach. Members that succeed at our CrossFit gym embrace the community, join our events, and forge friendships that propel them to next level.
HOW CAN CROSSFIT IMPROVE MY FITNESS?
CrossFit improves general physical preparedness (GPP). CrossFit is a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of 10 fitness domains: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. CrossFit was developed to enhance an individual’s competency at all physical tasks. People who do CrossFit are prepared for all challenges, whether they come in the gym, on a playing field or as part of daily life.

FireFlow Overview

Like the Primary Series of Astanga and the 26 + 2 of Bikram, FireFlow follows a consistent sequence of asanas or poses. Poses you learn and practice, but can take years to master. A balanced practice, FireFlow teaches all eight aspects of yoga.

  1. Folds for Back and Legs Flexibility
  2. Hip Openers for Hips and Groin Flexibility
  3. Heart Openers & Backbends
  4. Twists and Side Bends
  5. Inversions & Arm Balances for Strength and Control
  6. Planks and Core Stability
  7. Standing Poses for Improving Balance and Symmetry
  8. Seated Poses for Recovery and Building Maximum Range of Motion

FireFlow maintains the therapeutic properties and careful sequencing of Bikram. But unlike Bikram, you’ll learn to flow your poses in a Vinyasa. We built the sequencing of FireFlow based Animal Flow and Rocket Yoga. With practice, each pose effortlessly flows into the next. Unlike Bikram, Rocket, and Ashtanga, FireFlow features 8 Sequenced Flows.

    If you like working in groups, working with a team that knows what there doing, working with other members to help you with encouragement as you work together through the work outs this is the pack for you. My first experience was awesome when I finally started with the starter group class pack but now I can’t stop buying more group class packs. It’s like having a workout family to help push me, make sure I’m safe but help me achieve the goals I have set for myself for the betterment of my life. I look forward to continuing with these classes.
