Our CrossFit program and format was established in 2011 with a 7 year track record in the community as a safe, fun, and extremely effective fitness program that literally can be life changing.
CrossFit is a Core Strength and Conditioning program suitable for all levels. The CrossFit program is not a specialized fitness program, but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness categories: Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy. The CrossFit prescription is “constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensities”. Functional movements are universal motor recruitment patterns that are performed in a wave of contraction from the core to extremity, they are movements that are compound and require multi joint movement. They are movements that are natural to the human body, effective, and efficient.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist. The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. Its specialty is not specializing, rather building a fitness program that will improve ones level of fitness in all areas. CrossFit is a sport- the sport of fitness. We’ve learned that by harnessing the natural camaraderie, competition, and fun of sport, you will yield an intensity that cannot be matched by any other means. This approach allows CrossFit to produce athletes who are outstanding in all areas of fitness.
CrossFit is not dangerous, unfortunately bad coaching and programming IS. Since all CrossFit gyms design their own programs (workouts), when looking for a CrossFit gym it is important to do your research and know how long the box has been around, how much experience and qualifications the coaches have, and how much experience the box’s program director has programming workouts. The most common cause of injury in CrossFit or any workout routine is poor coaching and programming. CrossFit Ripped was established in 2011. Our coaches have over 4 years’ experience coaching, teaching & programming CrossFit and over 10 years’ experience as strength and conditioning trainers. We have trained people from all walks of life from professional fighters and football players to housewives and elderly. We know what we are doing, and have the track record and results to prove it!
