This is our entry to Left Coast CrossFit for new CrossFitters. Here you will learn the foundational movements and methodologies of CrossFit. You will also learn about the Left Coast CrossFit Culture and why we are different than other gyms.
Our CrossFit Workout of The Day (WOD) is our daily training program designed to dramatically improve your overall strength, body composition and general wellness. We exclusively employ Functional Movements due to their effectiveness when used in a strength and conditioning program. These movements consist of squatting, jumping, pushing, pulling, lifting, holding and more. We don't merely exercise however, we actually "train". You will develop skill and we are here to teach you, not just make you sweat.
The experience is Community Driven and you will train in a supportive environment. You learn in a group setting but get personal attention and coaching at a fraction of what personal training costs. We are Results Driven. We use the things that work and scrap what doesn't. We eat what is healthy and nothing more. We support others on their fitness journey and we get supported by them in return. The WOD is where you come to work and have fun while you do it.
Our Olympic Lifting class is held three times a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays from 4:30-6:00pm. These classes focus on the development of Olympic Lifting skills and technique, specifically in the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk movements. These two competitive lifts test explosive strength, coordination and speed more than any other movement or training modality in CrossFit. It is for this exact reason they must be practiced regularly and often while specifically developing the athlete's core strength, mobility and full range of motion.
CrossFit Kids is a method for teaching CrossFit to children ages 5-12. Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translates to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.
CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun! Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. The program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids. CrossFit Kids is designed to be minimalist; it is inexpensive and often requires little or no equipment, allowing for great opportunities to be physically fit and active throughout their lives.
