To the trainers at CrossFit Iron Addict, the word CrossFit means several things. It's the way they teach their students to move safely and efficiently. It's how they lead students down paths toward physical fitness, and how they reshape diets with healthy meats, veggies, and fruits. But CrossFit is also about the community, which is made up of people who support one another as they push toward their next workout goals.
Of course, CrossFit is also about the workouts themselves. The trainers constantly change the WOD, or workout of the day, switching up varied functional movements, such as swinging kettlebells or rocking medicine balls to sleep. Their high-intensity workouts can be scaled to accommodate students of all fitness levels, ensuring that everyone is equally challenged. Their schedule also includes a Barbell Club, Foundations class, and Skills class.
