Creating a solid foundation.
The key to CrossFit is training with INTENSITY. Intensity is a relative concept; what is intense for you will be completely different than what is intense for another person. The problem is that training any movement with intensity (not just CrossFit movements) can be taxing and problematic on your body if you are not primarily concerned with proper technique.
The 3 Class Basic Training Checklist (BTC) series introduces CrossFit movements, training methodology, nutrition and mobility. CrossFit movements are by nature safe, beneficial and functional. By focusing on proper technique, your learn to emphasize healthy movement patterns which translate to healthier joints, ligaments and muscles. We stress technique before intensity for all movements. Having a client perform any exercise (CrossFit or otherwise) with poor technique is like adding wear and tear to a vehicle by ignoring proper maintenance. Conversely, training with pain is like driving that vehicle with a known engine problem and choosing to ignore it. You're bound to break down sooner or later and will most likely have a more serious problem than if you had simply addressed and fixed the issues as they arise. Essentially, CrossFit is movement maintenance, and functional movements help identify movement compensation and unhealthy movement patterns. CrossFitting allows you to live a productive, healthy life; in motion. We work for healthy, pain free movement for every rep, every time. Learning to move takes practice, some patience and commitment. Only by practicing healthy movement principles (like joint Range-Of-Motion & core engagement) you are able to improve all other aspects of movement like speed, power, strength and stamina. Our professional, knowledgeable and inspiring coaches will help you lay the foundation for a quality, sustainable CrossFit journey.
