Cleans (Hang, Power, Squats)
Pressing (Strict, Push, Push Jerk)
Squats (Front, Back, Overhead)

In & Outs
Running (100m, 200m, 400m, 800m and 1 mile tracks)
Jumping Rope (D.U’s and Singles)
Types of WOD’s
All classes begin with a warm-up, then stretching, skill or strength work followed by a WOD (workout of the day). The class ends with time to cool down and/or stretch. If you are new to CrossFit, then we suggest that you start out with our Fit Camp classes until you feel comfortable with most of the movements.
Fit Camp classes are for All Ability Levels and No Experience is Necessary!!!
Our Fit Camp classes are built on the same basic principles that CrossFit is built upon (Constantly Varied, Fully Functional, High Intensity exercise). We create a fun, exciting, and supportive one-hour class that will help you start to develop strong cores, tone up, and build cardiovascular health! We scale back some of the technical and heavy lifting used in our CrossFit classes, and replace that with light weight, fully functional, interval training that will help create lean muscle mass and tone our problem areas. These are NOT your typical park boot camp classes! We use:
Pull Up Bars
And many other Plyometric, Calisthenic, and cardiovascular movements to bring you a boot camp experience unlike any other!!
We will work hard to teach the proper technique for any lifting movements and make sure you have a good understanding of our functional movements.
We understand that you will not be perfect at everything right away, but we will be able to continue to coach/teach during classes. We want to build on your basic understanding of the movements and help you master it while getting to participate in actual WOD’s in a group setting.
