Everyone should have some form of Olympic weightlifting in their exercise routine! Whether you benefit from more speed & power, an increase in bone density, or strength & coordination, it is great for everyone. It has been tested and studied as one of the safest forms of resistance training, and with proper coaching, less risk of injury compared to many sports. The amount of muscles that are used in the lifts, including the stabilizer muscles, will entail for a great workout. And because of the amount of muscles used, you learn to fire more muscle fibers, creating a very powerful athlete. It may even help in the prevention of osteoporosis, building bone density. For some, mastering a technical skill is a thrill in itself.
This class will focus on the Snatch, Clean and Jerk, as well as the accessory movements that facilitate and encourage good performance and technique. Work with experienced and certified coaches, train lifts under supervision and get personalized programming from some of the best in the area.

CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high school varsity wrestlers differ by degree but not kind; 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. This program gives kids the opportunity to be physically fit and active throughout their lives.
Coach Nick started working with kids in 2011. He has worked with children as young as four and teenagers 18+ years old. Proper movement and form are the main focal points for the CF kids program and also for the one-on-one training we offer. We have found taking the time to teach and stress the fundamentals of the movements sets the kids up for success.
The Foundations Course is split up into four (4), 60-80 minute sessions in a small group setting headed by one of the Gardens CrossFit Coaches. Foundations will meet Tuesday and Thursday @7:30pm, for 2 weeks. All 4 sessions must be completed before you can attend the regularly scheduled CrossFit classes. Please reserve your spot as space is limited. If you are unable to attend these sessions, please contact us to schedule another time with a Gardens CrossFit coach. We do offer private, one-on-one courses as well. There will be an additional fee associated with this.
If you are new to CrossFit, the worst thing you can do is let a coach throw you into classes without knowing the basics elements of what we do. That’s how you get hurt. It is important that you learn the basics of each movement, think of it as laying the foundation of a building. It’s crucial to proceed in your CrossFit career, and practicing safe technique. Our staff also needs to see how your body moves and to make sure that any deficiencies and/or injuries are identified, not to worsen. The coaches need to set up a mutual understanding of expectations. What you need as an athlete and what we expect as coaches.
You will learn the nine basic CrossFit movements: Squat, Front Squat, Overhead Squat, Press, Push Press, Push Jerk, Deadlift, Sumo Deadlift High Pull, Medicine Ball Clean, as well as Kettlebell Swings & Cleans, Pull-ups, Box Jumps and more! At the conclusion of your technique session, you will get the opportunity to put those skills into action in a WOD (workout of the day).
This is prefect for anyone new to CrossFit and its methodology, or anyone looking to improve upon their current technique. Let’s face it, we could all use a refresher once in a while!
Upon completion of your Foundations Course you will enter our regular CrossFit class schedule. You are on your way to living your best!
