At CrossFit Independence, our workouts are based on three fundamentals: constant variation, high intensity, and functional movements. What exactly does that mean? Let’s break it down.
One of the unique qualities of CrossFit training is the constantly changing workouts. We are continuously changing our workouts, so you do not get stuck in the redundancy of a “routine” Workout program. Many times, people will get into a routine where they do the same items over and over and after a while, they lose interest in fitness. Through constant variation, we are able to constantly stimulate the brain and challenge the body, which in turns keeps our clients interested in CrossFit classes. The Monday leg day Tuesday bench day and Wednesday shoulder day method is a product of the “routine” and for the most part not constantly varied.
All of our workouts are timed or scored. We train all of our members like athletes even know they may not consider themselves athletes. We try to create a competitive environment where whether our members are competing against themselves or with a workout partner, they feel a push and drive to do more and be better than they were the day before. Each CrossFit class begins with a 3,2,1 Go and whether you are first or last to finish, you are supported and encouraged by everyone to finish.
Functional movements means we use techniques and movements that we could encounter in everyday life to train in our workouts. Squatting is like getting up and down out of a chair; deadlifting is like picking a child up off the ground, and farmers carries are like bringing groceries in from the car. Those are just a couple examples of functional movements utilized throughout our CrossFit training program. When you enter our gym, you will not find a host of machinery to workout with. You will find medicine balls, barbells, bumper plates, pull up rig, kettle bells, climbing ropes, Gymnastics rings, and boxes. We use these items to help us carry out the functional movement’s component our training method.
