As we get older, we begin to lose muscle mass. This in turn means we lose the ability to perform everyday functions such as getting out of a chair, opening a window or taking a box down from a shelf.
The good news is, this process can be slowed (or even prevented) significantly with strength and conditioning exercise. CrossFit is a program designed for all individuals regardless of physical ability, experience or age. If you are age 40 or older & looking to get healthy without the intensity of a regular CrossFit class, this is the program for you!
We use CrossFit programming principles, but modify the workouts accordingly.
We do not incorporate heavy lifting. Instead, we work on strength while focusing heavily on correct technique. Proper body mechanics is our Number #1 priority.
Each class will spend time on mobility and warm-up.
We incorporate conditioning/cardio while monitoring the intensity. We will raise your heart rate while working with relative intensity.
We will focus on functional movements that will ultimately improve your quality of life outside of the gym. These movements include Squats, Deadlift, Carrying objects, pushing objects, etc.
This class DOES NOT include Olympic Lifting (Clean & Jerk, Snatch)
