At Put It Up Crossfit, a squad of certified coaches guides exercisers through functional workouts that help clients develop a broad base of fitness and conditioning skills. The team fosters a supportive, challenging atmosphere that encourages participants to push themselves in the direction of better health through an ever-rotating roster of movements. On any given day, the workouts may draw from challenging activities as far-flung as powerlifting, gymnastics, plyometrics, or watching Rudy without crying, all designed to sculpt physiques and breed functional fitness that can be applied to other areas of life.
At Viking CrossFit, adults aren't the only exercisers. In addition to typical CrossFit workouts, trainers also lead classes for kids. This version of CrossFit offers the same benefits of typical routines?strength, endurance, and overall fitness?but at a level that's safe and appropriate for different ages, including those as young as 4 years old.
As a high-school-athletics coach that engaged in a wide variety of workout systems, Crossfit Cedar Ridge owner Doug Meacham found the CrossFit method was a natural fit. Instead of engaging in numerous exercise routines to meet optimal results, he could obtain the same results with the ever-changing and intense daily workouts of CrossFit. It’s a system that uses functional movements, training the body to be ready for all physical activities—from the athletic to the quotidian. He and his team of trainers teach the system in a group setting that fosters camaraderie as well as a sense of commitment to each other and their goals.
Coaches lead members through new hour-long workouts each day at Elevated CrossFit American Fork. Even in a class setting, the coaches are able to personalize their guidance by tailoring exercises to equally challenge people at different fitness levels. They can add more weights to barbells during Olympic-style weightlifting exercises or have people climb ropes or a single strand of yarn dangling from the ceiling. Other CrossFit exercises include swinging kettlbells and flipping giant tires, both of which are performed using functional movements.
There are two things that a newcomer notices about CrossFit XSI: how hard the exercises look, and how much fun the exercisers are having. The reason behind both those observations comes from the trainers who lead athletes of all fitness levels through intense, full-body exercises. They structure the workouts around a variety of movements, all of which can be scaled to accommodate all levels, and they encourage a camaraderie among students that keeps people coming back.
Attending CrossFit Lehi?s group Crossfit classes doesn?t mean you don?t get one-on-one attention. In fact, the goal of the certified coaches is to tailor each Workout of the Day to each participant, giving them a challenging workout based on their fitness level and abilities. The coaches also offer classes for women only, and their special classes help kids as young as 5 improve their gross motor skills, including balanced running. The coaches focus on conditioning high school athletes as well.
