What is CrossFit?
In one hundred words or less (by Greg Glassman, Founder)
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
A little more detail…
CrossFit is an effective way to get fit. Anyone can do it. It is a fitness program that combines a wide variety of functional movements into a timed or scored workout. We do pull-ups, squats, push-ups, weightlifting, gymnastics, running, rowing, and a host of other movements. Always varied, always changing, always producing results. Kids, cops, firefighters, soccer moms, Navy SEALS, and grandmas all do CrossFit. In fact, hundreds of thousands worldwide have followed our workouts and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes. Welcome.
Ready to get started?
CrossFit is for everyone. Whether you are a high level athlete, or if you have never worked out in your life, you will fit right in at CrossFit Postal. Almost all of our classes have a wide range of athletes of all fitness and age levels. Our coaches will assist you in learning the various movements and tailoring the workouts to your individual fitness level.
Look over our class schedule and feel free to stop by any of our classes, or come by during open gym to talk with a coach. Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes early so we can prepare you for class.
What can you expect?
Our 1-hour classes typically have up to 15 athletes, with at least one coach leading the group. We will get you warmed up, provide instruction on the movements in the workout of the day (WOD), and help you modify the workout to your level.
Then we work.
The WOD will involve a combination of cardio, weightlifting, and/or bodyweight movements; it might be short, medium, or long in duration. It will be hard. “Hard” is subjective – what’s hard for one person may be easy for another. Our goal is for everyone to get a great workout and feel about the same at the end, whether you are a fire breather or a newbie.
