CrossFit HCC does not look like your typical gym. You will notice several things are different, there are no rows of treadmills, ellipticals, and cable machines or mirrors. Instead, you will find pull-up bars, kettlebells, barbells and an open gym space for squatting, running, jumping, climbing, lifting and throwing – performing movements that our bodies are designed to do. Our workouts consist of exercises that mimic movements performed in day-to-day life or sport. We rarely bicep curl anything in life so why would we do it in the gym? We focus on functional movements that are essential to lead a successful, independent lifestyle.
At CrossFit HCC, we constantly vary our programming. This means you will rarely do the same workout twice in a 6-12 month time period. You do not have to program workouts for yourself, all you have to do is show up ready to work. And you will not have to spend hours at our gym to get a great workout. Instead, each day a workout will be provided for you that is scalable to your fitness level. And because our workouts are rarely longer than 60 minutes, you can get in your workout and get on with your life!
The goal of CrossFit is to improve your capacity in ten recognized general fitness skills: cardio-respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. This should be the goal of a BALANCED fitness program. This is what makes CrossFit the most well rounded fitness program available!
CrossFit has a group training format with classes lasting 60 minutes. At CrossFit HCC, our classes are smaller to maintain that Coach to Athlete ratio, giving you more one-on-one attention.There are several classes a day that members can attend. There are some in the morning, a mid-day, and some at night.
You are strongly encouraged to come as often as possible, the more you come the quicker and greater the results. But not everyone’s schedule allows for that, so sign up for the classes that you can attend.
The classes are group workouts that start with a warm up, consisting of stretching, some light cardio and some body weight exercises. Then the Work Out of the Day (WOD), starting with a skill development section to focus on form, technique, and general CrossFit skills followed by a strength exercise usually involving weightlifting. Finally, the workout, which changes every day and focuses on different parts of your body. Your workout will be timed and conducted at a high intensity.
Everyone does the same workout at the same time, but your only competition is with yourself. “You don’t need to be better than anyone else, just be better than you were yesterday”. There will always be a certified coach there to instruct, help, correct, and inform everyone. All you need to worry about is showing up to the class, no matter what your fitness level, and you will be told exactly what to do. No contracts, no commitments, just get in shape and have fun!
Constantly varies, always changing workouts, never letting your body adapt. This is why CrossFit is great for getting results. Your body never gets used to anything so you never reach those plateaus that are so common in a traditional gym.
Functional movements that humans were built for. Movements that are natural and safe. Movements we use in everyday life such as squatting (bending down), deadlifting (picking things up), pull-ups (pulling yourself up), to name a few
