At a typical gym, you’re left to your own devices, motivation and knowledge which often leads to the same boring routine. At CrossFit Chilliwack, our goal is to actually effectively coach you – so you can strengthen your entire body and increase your work capacity, health and wellness with an interesting and challenging variety of movements.
Constantly Varied, Functional Movements Executed at High Intensity in a shared work environment is fun! It is scalable in all aspects making it the optimal fitness regimen for any committed individual regardless of age or experience. Our CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements; getting off the floor, standing from a seat, reaching for a tall shelf, lifting from the floor. We combine movements such as running, rowing, biking, jumping rope, weightlifting and bodyweight exercises. We use a variety of equipment; barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, gymnastics rings, pull-up bars, medicine balls and boxes in a variety of combinations in our daily workouts. CrossFit classes are coach-led one hour sessions and include a warm-up, instruction on skill and strength development, conditioning and mobility.
CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity. So what does that mean? It means we mix things up regularly, perform exercises that mimic real-life and we go hard. This type of workout is designed to help you be ready for whatever life might throw your way. Every movement is scalable, meaning we can make adjustments for everyone no matter your fitness level to move safely and get a great workout in. Workouts vary in degree not kind. CrossFit is for everyone from the stay-at-home parent to the Navy Seal.
If you’re ready to join, but you don’t have any CrossFit experience or simply want a refresher, we encourage all athletes to complete our Elements introductory session.
In Elements, your coach will first orient you to the gym, our current COVID safety protocols and then teach the foundational movements of CrossFit plus a few extra teaching points along with the CrossFit ‘lingo’. We’ll also finish with a WOD (workout of the day) that will feature some of the movements that you learned in your session. Elements is currently about a 2-hour session and is no charge and most importantly you’ll have fun! We schedule these on most Saturdays.
Upon completion of Elements you’ll be welcomed into our amazing community through our regular classes. If you’re a little unsure we offer a free trial session as well. From there we offer monthly memberships, Personal Training sessions, group classes or individual sessions where you can practice and do your own thing. We will be here to assist you to help you reach your fitness goals.
Once you’ve decided you’d like to get started, you’ll need to register and also sign up for each session. We will activate your registration through Wodify software. You will receive a confirmation email from Wodify with a Login and Password requesting you to complete the profile information including preferred method of payment. Payments can be made either by credit card (MC/Visa) or by direct debit. If you have any questions and are ready to get started please contact us at: [email protected]
