CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.
Crossfit classes include a skill-based warm-up, skill or strength training, the Workout of the Day (or “WOD”), and mobility work. The workouts can always be scaled so that new athletes can workout alongside veteran athletes.
OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTINGOpen to all members of CrossFit Higley as well as non-members. This class focuses primarily on instructing and improving technical execution of the Snatch, Clean & Jerk and related lifts. Only Olympic and auxiliary lifts can be practiced at this time. Individuals with little or no prior experience with the Olympic lifts may be required to attend private coaching sessions if training and technical work is beyond what can be accomplished during the class time.
PRIVATE TRAININGPrivate training is great for those with crazy busy schedules. With private training you are able to set your own time and schedule with one of CrossFit Higley’s highly qualified coaches. This option also allows for much more individualized coaching and attention.
