The instructors at The Training Pit share a simple, yet somewhat radical belief. They believe that someone working out for the first time should learn and participate in the same drills that help Olympic athletes get into shape. The only distinction worth considering is the degree of intensity.
Following this logic, they have designed a roster of CrossFit workouts that can accommodate participants at all levels of fitness. Such workouts help groups build camaraderie by stressing shared goals rather than competition. An average class might involve any number of workout activities, from weightlifting and gymnastics to sprinting and car throwing.
Be prepared to do pull-ups, push-ups, dead lifts, and other functional exercises at CrossFit Semtex, since, as the name suggests, the facility's trainers adhere to CrossFit's regularly-changing workouts. During each daily workout, exercisers are given a series of functional exercises and encouraged to complete them as intensely as they can. Due to the workouts' functional nature, they can be scaled for nearly any fitness level, and due to their penchant for change, they can help exercisers overcome nearly any fitness plateau that doesn't involve being locked in an ice cream factory.
