Our Fundamentals Program is a prerequisite to joining the CrossFit classes consisting our of six 1 hour classes and two 30-minute nutrition consultations. The classes are designed to teach you the proper mechanics to lift safely and effectively, as well as gradually introduce you to the intensity of CrossFit. The nutrition consultations will assess your current eating habits and give nutritional guidance to support your fitness goals.
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.
