  • CrossFit- ALL LEVELS
  • Our Power House CrossFit- ALL LEVELS classes are customized to serve both our Level 1 (P1) and our Level 2 (P2) athletes simultaneously. This 60 minute class will include all the elements of both classes- warmup, skill, strength, WOD, cool down. Workouts will be adjusted to accommodate the level of fitness for each person. We expect all athletes in our All Levels classes to come motivated and open to new skill development.
     
    More about the Level 1 & Level 2 CrossFit Classes:
     
     
    All Level 1 classes will include a comprehensive warmup and movement prep followed by a skill, then strength and power development, metabolic conditioning, ending with yoga or localized core work. The focus of these classes is quality of movement especially with regard to body weight movements, establishing a high level of cardio-respiratory fitness and a base level of strength. Equipment at the P1 level is primarily in the form of medicine balls, dumbbells, kettlebells, and bands. Trainer barbells and barbells will be introduced when appropriate.
     
    Level 2 (P2) classes are open to athletes who meet our Level 2 standards and move at a faster pace than a Level 1 class while incorporating more emphasis on barbell training and upper level “gymnastics” movements. P2 athletes will have the opportunity to test themselves in high intensity metabolic conditioning formats. P2 instructors are experts in scaling workouts up and down to challenge the athlete at the appropriate level. Please contact us anytime with further questions. The P2 format is similar to that of a P1: warmup, movement prep, skill, strength and power, conditioning, accessory.

  • Midline & Mobility (Loft)
  • Midline & Mobility is an active recovery class that focuses on engaging your core to support mobility throughout your body, as well as lengthen and decompress your spine.

    Our Midline & Mobility work pulls from the bodies of knowledge from yoga, classical Pilates, and mobilitywod, and we focus on mobilizing the entire body through movement. Pilates elements will work on flexing and extending throughout the body while developing more core capacity. The yoga and mobilitywod-style pieces will identify trigger points and inflexibility and provides movements and exercises to correct them.

    Adding this class into your weekly training is a necessary for working on mobility issues, past injuries, and developing awareness in a low impact way that is beneficial to all athletes and lifters. We will pay special attention to developing a practice that benefits healthy shoulders, a healthy spine and core strength- all things critical to sport performance and CrossFit.
