CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness. SOURCE: CrossFit, Inc.
At NorCo CrossFit we believe intensity is the inherent variable most commonly associated with favorable returns. The WOD (Workout of the Day) can be for time, for score, or for total weight.
Each WOD is done in a group setting with a class maximum of 10 people. This allows your coach to give you the attention needed for your success and safety, meanwhile breeding camaraderie and forming a fun, supportive environment.
Absolutely! The movements are infinitely scalable which enables us to scale the workouts and movements according to your individual’s fitness level. We have proven success increasing athleticism and fitness in elite/professional athletes, children, teenagers, adults, and older adults. We have worked with people with multiple knee surgeries, heart transplantee, shoulder/ankle surgery, spine surgery and other various conditions who have all benefited a great deal from our program.
If you’re new to CrossFit, give our NorCo MOVE program a try for 45 minutes and see if we can’t get you hooked! And, if you’re a more seasoned athlete wanting to focus upon strength and conditioning, programming is included with your membership so you can hone your skills on barbell lifts, Olympic weightlifting, endurance, gymnastics, midline strength, and midline conditioning.
