What is CrossFit

Crossfit is a high-intensity sport that combines gymnastics, elements of cardio, and weight lifting. This is a program that was developed for body conditioning and that will help you optimize 10 physical competences:

  • Cardio
  • Accuracy
  • Coordination
  • Power
  • Speed
  • Strenght
  • Agility
  • Balance
  • Flexibility
  • Stamina

In our opinion, Crossfit is the most effective program to keep yourself in a good shape. Crossfitters are atheletes who are part of the fittest people on earth.

It has also become the main training program for military, police, special force, firefighters, martial art champions and other high level atheletes.

Crossfit is a great way to reach your fitness goal quickly as well as being part of a community which will become like a new family.

Routine is not part of Crossfit and the workouts are always varied, you will never do the same (unless you want to assess your progression).

Our goal is to help you prepare the unknown and the unexpected.

The basis of the CrossFit method is to provide SHORT and INTENSE workouts, to develop your 10 physical qualities. CROSSFIT MEANS HIGH INTENSITY, CONSTANTLY VARIED FUNCTIONNAL MOVEMENTS  A good chipper “from time to time” is good but making 30+ min WOD every day will never allow you to cover all your physical abilities and give you a good fitness level.  No one can do a 40 min wod with high intensity (don’t forget that to assess your fitness level we use benchmark which are almost all short but very intense).

Our classes are structured and made in a way that you will improve, progress and not regress or injure yourself.

Classes lasts one hour and are made as follow:

  • Warm up
  • Working on strength or a skill is taught (gymnastics, weightlifting…)
  • Preparation to the workout
  • Workout

What is a WOD:

WOD = Workout Of the Day

The WOD is different everyday and is designed by your coach to help you get the most out of your training.

The WOD is made choosing different movements from different disciplines:

  • Gymnastics: Body weight, pull ups, push ups, muscle up, abs, burpees
  • Cardio: Rowing, running, jumping roap, swimming, …
  • Weight lifting: Dead lift, squats, clean, push press, snatch etc

We guarantee you that you will never get bored and you will notice improvement very quickly.
