WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
By definition CrossFit is Constantly Varied Functional Movements performed at High Intensity.
Ya, that’s great but what the hell does that even mean?
Good question! The concept is simple. We have all heard that we have to “mix up our workouts” for continued results. This is true! Most people are still confused on how to do this or what this really means. Maybe you’ve been going to the gym several days a week for awhile but have not changed your body composition or overall fitness level? Frustrating right? We can help!
CrossFit programming forces continued change and improvement through constantly varied work on all 3 primary energy pathways otherwise known as anaerobic and aerobic training. We program our workouts using a mix of intensity, weightlifting, gymnastics and metabolic training(cardio) in a way that forces us to simultaneously use multiple muscle groups and ranges of motion. When combined properly the overall adaptation in your body composition, performance, energy levels and overall health is very real!
Anyone willing to consistently show up, put in the work and have a great time getting in the best shape of their lives should be doing CrossFit. We scale our training to the individual. Anyone can do it!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Rule #1 at Free Style CrossFit is DON’T GET HURT at Free Style CrossFit!!
Don’t let the online CrossFit videos scare you. We are not about killing ourselves in the name of intensity and 1 rep. maxes. Our priority is your safety. We will first focus on form, stabilization and consistency. As this improves weight, intensity and variety will be added to your training with the direct intention of improving your strength, power, flexibility, stamina, endurance, speed, quickness and agility all in a natural progression. This in turn will improve your overall body composition by burning fat while adding lean muscle mass.
You will learn skilled movements that generally encompass many muscle groups and ranges of motion. These movements
not only teach you to use your body efficiently but by their nature have a profound effect on your metabolism, body
composition and general health.

Whatever it is you want to accomplish, your nutrition will either speed you on your path or create a frustrating road block to your success.
