What is CrossFit?

Crossfit is a mix of gymnastics, weightlifting, and running/rowing exercises with workouts that are short and long and somewhere in the middle.

CrossFit is a community of people with goals just like yours.

CrossFit is a healthy lifestyle. Its a challenge.

CrossFit is so much more than a workout.

World-Class Fitness in 100 Words

“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, clean and jerk, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climbs, 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.”

Greg Glassman, CrossFit CEO and Founder

 

Is CrossFit meant for me?

Yes!

Your needs and the Olympic athlete’s differ by degree not kind. Increased power, strength, cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, flexibility, stamina, coordination, agility, balance, and coordination are each important to the world’s best athletes and to ourselves, our children, parents, and grandparents. The amazing truth is that the CrossFit program that works for the Olympic or professional athlete will work for everyone else as well.  We scale intensity and load for the individual, not the program. So whether you are an athlete or never been an athlete or you are older, the CrossFit program will fulfill your fitness needs.

Ready to try CrossFit?

Give us a call to schedule your first Foundations class appointment. 626-487-3582.  We can work with you to schedule classes in the morning or evening.

 

Foundations is 4 private/semi-private sessions with our trainers.  We will teach you the CrossFit 9 Basic Movements (3 squats, 3 presses, 3 lifts) as well as a few other staple movements and asses your physical condition. You will learn and practice the proper technique for each movement.

The goal of the Foundations course is not to master the movements, but to become familiar with the movements and lay the groundwork for moving with proper technique.

 

Still not sure this CrossFit thing is right for you?


Come in and give CrossFit a try.

You don’t have to be “in shape” to start. Just bring your curiosity and some water to our Free Intro Class at 8:45 am on Saturdays.

Here is what you can expect in the Intro Class:

  • We will teach you some basic movements and how to perform the movements properly.
  • You will practice and we will scale the movements to your fitness experience and capacity.
  • 3-2-1-Go. This is the fun part where we put you through a CrossFit workout.
  • After the workout you will do a little cool down.

If you aren’t able to come in on a Saturday, feel free to stop by and watch any class in our schedule.

Once you try CrossFit and decide to give it a go, we hope you will choose to continue your journey with us. If you’re not sure whether Crossfit Monrovia is right for you, we encourage you to visit other gyms. There are several CrossFit gym choices in our area and each one has its own personality. Ultimately, the right gym for you is the one that fits you best.

Time to workout.

Congratulation, it’s time to go to work! Plan to attend classes at least 3 times per week and follow these three steps.

    1. Mechanics – Practice doing the movements properly.
    2. Consistency – Practice the movement and routinely do the movement properly.
    3. Intensity – Once you can consistently perform the movement properly, then you can raise the intensity.

Is CrossFit intense? Yes, but everyone is working at their own relative intensity and progressing at their own pace. Give yourself a month to get used to the program.  Our trainers will be there to guide you through this journey.
