Your body is adaptive. It's as simple as that. Are you repeating the same routine every time you go to the gym? Chances are your body is on to you. It knows your old routine by heart therefore making your efforts far less effective. Crossfit keeps your body guessing by introducing different movements each class. Every WOD will be completely unique to the one before it. You’ll have a difficult time plateauing when your body has no idea what's next.
Ever picked up a heavy box off of the floor? You’ve already performed a deadlift. Maybe you then lifted that box overhead to place on a high shelf? Congrats! You’ve also performed a strict press. When we say functional movements, we mean movements you perform almost every day. Our goal is to help you perform them safely, quickly, and efficiently. By performing these movements at a high intensity, your not only increasing your strength and stamina, but you’re also reaping the benefits of an intense cardio workout. You will achive more in 5 minutes than you would 30 minutes on a treadmill
Remember when we said each workout is different? Well, its not only the movements that change – the length of time varies as well. One day you might do 4 rounds of kettlebell swings, box jumps, and situps. The next day you might be doing as many rounds of pullups, pushups, and squats as your can perform in 20 minutes. We're training you to be a machine whether the workout is 5 minutes long or 30 minutes long. Our programming will teach you to pace yourself so you can stay in constant movement so you can get the most out of each workout.
At CrossFit South Bay, we utilize functional movements that make you stronger for your every day life inside AND outside of the gym, while creating different workouts every day to keep things exciting. The high intensity nature of CrossFit workouts is what produces the most ideal response for your body – both for your appearance and performance. Our creative and fun programming pulls the best of the best from all fields: endurance, speed training, kettlebells, gymnastics, Olympic and power weightlifting, boxing, etc!
Since 2008, our classes have provided an encouraging, non-intimidating vibe that makes every member feel like they are part of our fitness family. Everything at CrossFit can be scaled to your current fitness level – so in a typical class you will see soccer moms next to Air Force members next to high school students. Every person works together to achieve the same goal: constantly improving his or her fitness level. As a gym, we also plan community service outings, nutrition challenges and family social events.
Our experienced coaching staff doesn’t just guide our members through workouts – they educate on injury prevention, mobility & flexibility, nutrition and lead the classes through playful group warmups and cool downs. CrossFit South Bay embraces a holistic approach to fitness and lifestyle – it’s a one stop shop for your workouts, physical therapy & body maintenance, goal setting and, of course, your social scene.
