CrossFit Classics

This class is taught by:

Jorge Artavia

Jorge Artavia is a performance coach at The Power House. Jorge discovered his love for strength and conditioning through playing and coaching soccer -- both locally and internationally. His passion and “love of the game” also led him to study Nutrition and Exercise and obtain his Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification upon graduation. At The Power House, Jorge specializes in working with teams and brings sports-specific training to its full potential with everyone he coaches. There is no doubt Jorge helps each team increase their speed, strength, power and agility. When Jorge isn't coaching or working on his split squat, he is resting and relaxing at home.

Logan U'u

Logan U’u is a performance coach at The Power House. Logan got into coaching through owner and head coach, Max Lipset. In his words, he helped Max with a small group training session one day, and hasn’t turned back since. Logan is without a doubt the gym’s humble warrior, and he finds fulfillment in helping others. His creativity and mindfulness allows him to craft spot-on programs that best fit his clients, and his genuine character keeps them coming back. To Logan, winning your life means confronting fears and insecurities, and learning to rise above them. When Logan isn’t breathing or in savasana, he enjoys spending time in silence, going for walks around his neighborhood and observing plant life -- he just loves how the seasons change.
The CrossFit Classics class will complete one of the well-known/loved/feared workouts each week. A "WOD" is a Workout of the Day, and these are the classic workouts that unite CrossFitters together in shared triumph and exertion.
EVERY CROSSFIT CLASSICS WORKOUT CAN AND WILL BE SCALED FOR EACH ATHLETE! These workout are a blast, and can be done by any Power House athlete at their own level of fitness. There should be no intimidation factor here.
The Girls WODs in CrossFit are considered the benchmark Crossfit workouts and are named after the women who first did them. Not only are they very challenging, but they provide an excellent test of your current level of fitness and a consistent way to keep going back and retesting for better times, heavier weights, and new skills. There is nothing quite like the feeling of improving your 'Fran' time or doing a workout at the prescribed weights for the first time!
Here are two examples of a 'Girls' benchmark workout:
For time:
1000m row
50 Thrusters 
30 Pull Ups
For Time:
150 Wall Balls 
Hero WODs are CrossFit workouts named after soldiers who have been killed in action. These workouts are meant to be done at intense effort, in honor of the fallen Hero.  
Here is an example of two Hero workouts:

With a single 2 pood kettlebell:
21 Turkish get-ups, Right arm
50 Swings
21 Overhead squats, Left arm
50 Swings
21 Overhead squats, Right arm
50 Swings
21 Turkish get-ups, Left arm
For time
1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats

This class focuses on doing one of the Girls or Hero WODs each week. The class will begin with a warmup and mobility work to prepare for the WOD, then it is game on! Any extra time in class will be used for cool down and recovery.
Mixed-modality and high-intensity, come on over and hang with ladies like Chelsea, Fran, Linda, Nicole and heroes like Bradley, Murph, Badger, and D.T. Let our expert coaches coach you through these challenging workouts programmed by the CrossFit HQ staff.

There are no pre-requisites to joining this class (EVERYONE CAN PARTICIPATE!) and it is a fun way to kick off your weekend on Friday evenings. We highly encourage this class to learn more about CrossFit and test your fitness against these epic workouts and the people who they are named for.
