At CrossFit Junkies we focus our programing to honor basic human needs of sleep, nutrition, movement and social connection. We believe a simple approach will help you find balance in your life. We are a non-medical health care provider using strength and conditioning, real food nutrition, and a personal approach to developing a healthier you.
Crossfit is constantly varied functional movement perform at high intensity. Okay, you’ve heard that before but what does that mean? Constantly Varied: everyday you walk in the box we have a workout programmed for you that will challenge you in different ways, different movements, different time domains, different fitness modalities (cardio, weightlifting, gymnastics, etc).
So you can squat 400 lbs., that’s awesome! Now can you squat 185 lbs. 10 times after running 400 meters and then do 15 Hand Stand push-ups and repeat that 5 times? No longer are we just building strength but we are also improving our cardiovascular and muscular endurance. Say hello to a whole new ball game, and what the heck are these muscles I never even knew existed, and why are they sore?
But CrossFit is much, much more than just that. Let me; better yet, let our Junkies explain…
Fundamentals consists of (3) 1.5 hour classes. During each class we will learn and practice several exercises/movements/skills that we utilize during normal CrossFit workouts. We will discuss how the box works, some of the language that is specific to CrossFit, and do a WOD (Workout of the Day). Each day there will be information to take home to review and some that will prepare you for the next class. Because learning the movements can take some time, we slow the pace down to really learn the technique and safety of each movement. Fundamentals is required for all who are new to the sport of CrossFit. Members must attend all classes in order to move on for your first group WOD. Contact CrossFit Junkies to arrange for a FREE introductory class and to reserve a spot in the next Fundamentals course. Making up a missed class may be arranged by contacting our Junkie Staff at (407-744-6899). The cost to complete Fundamentals is $40 per person.
When members of other CrossFit affiliates visit our box we always ask them what is their favorite aspect of CrossFit. By far the most common response is, “the community.” The CrossFit community is in a word awesome. You can go to almost any box in the world for a visit or drop in and be welcomed by coaches and members as one of their own. It is welcoming and uplifting. We are all trying to get better, be healthier and happier and we try to share that enthusiasm with each other, and help one another however we can. We participate in competitions, events, charities, socials, nutritional challenges… You name it we will probably do it with other members, who almost become like a second family. As life seems to pull people further and further into technology and away from personal interaction, CrossFit brings people together in a positive and healthy pursuit, and we have a ton of fun in the process.
