What Is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that delivers elite fitness for everyone. CrossFit Sirius’s classes and private coaching utilize the proven CrossFit training methodology developed by renowned Coach Greg Glassman, who designed the program after spending most of his life coaching, training, and working with athletes of all ages and abilities. He discovered that high level fitness is not limited to high level athletes.
CrossFit workouts will get you as close as possible to your physical potential by utilizing constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity. Instead of wasting time using the over-sized single joint machines found in most “conventional” globo gyms, you will learn how to safely and efficiently maximize your body’s potential by performing compound functional movements like running, jumping, squatting, pushing, pressing, and lifting-movements we do in some capacity in our everyday lives. These movements will be performed using your body and barbells, kettle bells, dumbbells, medicine balls, gymnastics rings, and pull-up bars. Combining these movements under various loads with high intensity under our excellent programming will yield a level of fitness most believe to be unattainable.
Our workouts and classes are universally scalable, meaning that anyone from a high level athlete to someone completely new to fitness can complete the same workout side by side with differences in load and intensity. Our gym and program is open to everyone! Our programming is designed to improve your capacity in all of the ten recognized fitness domains: cardio-respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. The result is outstanding physical fitness, mental fortitude, and health.
