The Fundamentals Program consists of 6 classes that are designed to introduce new members to the core movements of CrossFit and give beginners the opportunity to develop technique while progressively increasing intensity. We will focus on developing proficiency in a variety of movements to provide a solid foundation for future Strength and Conditioning.
Movements to be covered during the Fundamentals Classes:
- Squatting: Air Squat, Back Squat, Front Squat, Overhead Squat
- Pressing: Shoulder Press, Push Press, Push Jerk, Split Jerk
- Pulling: Deadlift, Sumo Deadlift High Pull, Clean, Snatch, Kettlebell Swing
- Gymnastics: Push-up, Pull-up, Sit-ups, Back & Hip Extensions, Box Jump
- Metabolic Conditioning: Rowing, Running, Jumping Rope
These movements will be taught in an environment that focuses on safety through proper form. Each class is 1 hour in length and begins with a warm up that is specific to the movements that will be learned that day. The majority of the hour will be spent working on learning and developing the technique of each movement that will be covered during that class. Participants will then complete a WOD that will be scaled to each individual’s fitness level. Following the WOD, there will be a cool down and a brief period of time to ask questions or discuss any of the movements learned that day. Come ready to work hard and have fun while learning something new!
In addition to the 6 classes, the program will also include a 60 Minute Nutrition Assessment to educate new athletes about what a healthy diet looks like and how to use food as fuel to improve athletic performance as well as body composition. Athletes will be asked to complete a 7-day Food Log and then they will meet with Coach CK to discuss their current diet and ways to make improvements.
