The difference in the physical needs of an athlete and a grandmother vary not by type but by intensity.
For example: the wrestler lifting his opponent for a take down and the mother lifting her baby out of the car use similar movements to accomplish their respective tasks. We call this functional movement – the movements you perform every day. Similarly, we scale our workouts not by type, but by intensity and weight for each person performing them. Our program is designed so people of any age, gender, and fitness level can benefit. (CrossFit Stoic).
Each person comes to CrossFit Modig with a different motivation. For some, it’s to lose weight, others to elevate their competitive edge, and for many to break the cycle of a tired “big box” gym routine. At CrossFit Modig, you not only get an amazing workout, but nutritional guidance, personalized attention and a great community vibe.
Our group classes provide everyone with the same core CrossFit training methodology, but at the appropriate intensity and load for your specific needs. We also feel that it is important to progress your CrossFit training at an appropriate pace. Each class is instructed by certified CrossFit coaches and with specific attention to individual needs. In addition to our core CrossFit classes, we also offer Olympic Lifting, Endurance and CrossFit Kids programs. The Olympic Lifting and Endurance programs work in conjunction with the regular CrossFit classes and allow you to spend dedicated time either solely on Olympic Lifting or Endurance based workouts.
To begin your training at CrossFit Modig, we require a free introductory session to discuss your exercise, injury and health history, as well as nutrition and goals.
We will also put you through a short workout and recovery session designed to give you an idea of our CrossFit class format and to assess your overall fitness level. CrossFit is scalable to any ability. We adjust intensity and weight to suit individual needs. By the end of the intro session, you will have a better understanding of our “box” and we’ll have had the opportunity to get to know you.
The warm up is intended to elevate your heart rate and to warm up your muscles. The length of time for the warm-up varies between 10 – 15 minutes and can include some of the basic functional CrossFit movements, like air squats, sit-ups, push-ups, etc. and will often be inter-mixed with lower intensity cardio exercises like running, rowing or jumping rope. In order to get your body prepared for the day’s workout, we also incorporate stretching exercises that focus on the areas of the body that will be worked the most.
While many of the CrossFit workouts include simple movements, some take longer to master. We want to provide the opportunity to improve your form and the ability to add more load. During the Skill/Strength portion of class, we will either work on perfecting a skill or on pure strength building exercises. Examples include back squats and front squats, clean and jerk, snatch, etc.
Workout of the Day (WOD)
This is the part of class where you will incorporate your warm-up, stretching and skill/strength work into a high intensity, metabolic conditioning workout. Conditioning is planned to be effective and efficient. “More is not better, Better is Better.” Intensity is prescribed and closely monitored during workouts.
This time is on you to take care of your body. Stretch. Foam roll. Use the mobility exercises to address your weaknesses in range of motion.
