CROSSFIT (ALL LEVELS)
CrossFit Horsepower uses functional, everyday movements with varied weights and times to consistently improve the overall health, strength, and fitness of our clients.
A typical CrossFit class will start off with extensive stretching and a cardio warm-up. Next we will either go into some light interval training to elevate the heart rate, or work on building core strength through carefully designed weight lifting. Next, the class will do the Workout of the Day (affectionately referred to as the ‘WOD’). A whole body combination of cardio, gymnastic, and weight lifting movements, the typical WOD lasts between 5 and 20 minutes. It’s done as a group with a timer on the wall, so it feels much more like an exciting sport than a workout.
Keep in mind that we encourage our clients to scale our CrossFit workouts to suit their individual needs and abilities (and we help you with that). This way the athlete from any skill or fitness level can get right into class and enjoy the workout with intensity… and reap tremendous results right out the gate! After the WOD we encourage a series of stretching exercises led by the coach.
And that’s it! In one hour you’ve done more good for your body that most people do in an entire week!
Available EXCLUSIVELY at CrossFit Horsepower, the CardioFleX™ class is a fun and intense rapid- fire approach to CrossFit that is suitable for all levels of fitness. The one hour session blends the well-known boot camp approach of group fitness classes with the functional sport feel of CrossFit. No heavy weights. But no sitting around! Your muscle tone, flexibility, heart and lungs will never forget it!
INTRO TO CROSSFIT: THE FUNDAMENTALS
The basis for all the work we do here at CrossFit Horsepower starts here. In the intro course you’ll start to learn all the fundamental CrossFit exercises, movements, and skill sets. This is a required course for all clients new to the sport of CrossFit, whether they are new to fitness or seasoned athletes. Our focus here is on proper movement and technique to minimize the risk of injury, and maximize the benefit derived from the time you spend with us.
Foundational CrossFit movements provide the framework for this course. They include: the basic squat, front squat, overhead squat, shoulder press, jerk press, push press, deadlift, deadlift high- pull, and clean.
After working on fundamentals, we will go into a functional workout. Although it will be short, we can promise that you’ll find it extremely challenging. We suggest that our clients enjoy several of these classes before moving on to CrossFit, and always welcome folks back to further focus on fundamentals.
You thought your CrossFit workouts were fun! Working with a partner through a “WOD” if oft described as “more fun than Disneyland.” Plus it’s a great way to get to know a bunch of great people!
Kids CrossFit combines gymnastics, body weight calisthenics, and weightlifting elements to develop capacity across ten general physical skills: cardio, endurance, power, strength, stamina, speed, agility, flexibility, balance, accuracy, and coordination. Additional elements that encourage bone density development, cross body movements and exercises that involve the vestibular system are also incorporated. Children and teens have a greater opportunity (relative to adults) to maximize their physical skills when exposed to this stimulus during years of peak development.
The elements are combined to keep children engaged and entertained, while teaching them proper movement technique and creating a broad athletic foundation. Nutrition is also discussed as the basis of athletic performance and health within a supportive community.
For Kids CrossFit, our goal is to pair fitness and fun, and create a lifelong love of health and fitness for our children.
Our professional staff of personal trainers employs specifically focused CrossFit techniques to carefully tailor a program fitted precisely to the individual.
