What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning system built on constantly varied, functional movements executed at high intensity. So what does that mean? Let’s break it down. Strength and Conditioning: CrossFit promotes all aspects of fitness, instead of focusing narrowly on just one. Constantly Varied: A different workout every time means CrossFit is never boring! Functional Movements: CrossFit exercises are based on movements the human body is designed to do, and needs to do every day. High Intensity: Working hard is essential, and CrossFit training helps you work your hardest, to get your best results. Last but not least, Scalability: Every exercise can be scaled to your level. If you can’t lift a barbell, start with a broomstick! You’ll still get amazing results, by listening to your body and scaling up when you’re ready.

As a group, we will be participating in the 2019 Fall Whole Life Challenge. This is a “whole life” challenge that encompasses looking at sleep habits, hydration, exercise, mobility, and of course nutrition. This will be our fourth run through of a WLC and have seen time and time again the importance of this challenge for our members. This challenge will begin on September 28thand is a 6-week challenge. There is early registration pricing going on right now that I recommend jumping on! For those of you that have participated in the past, you know this is a great way to get back on track with healthy habits. If you have not previously participated, this is a great way to establish some new habits and maybe kick some bad ones. If you have any questions, please ask Spenser or Alicia. We will kick off the Whole Life Challenge with a “whole life” skill class, Wednesday, September 25that 6pm to set some realistic goals, review nutrition guidelines and answer any questions about the challenge.
Sign up by 8/18 and the cost is only $24!
