What is Battle CrossFit?
WHAT IS BATTLE CROSSFIT?
A gym…a strength and conditioning methodology…a community…a tight knit group of people who support each other through life’s battles. A place to find a better you.
Our vision: a community of individuals who each day strive to become better and help those around them become better.
WHY BATTLE CROSSFIT IS FOR YOU?
What distinguishes us from many CrossFit affiliates today is that our primary goal is not Group Exercise classes. Yes, we have group classes for our experienced members – members whose baseline fitness and technical skills are sound.
Instead, at Battle CrossFit you will have a personal coach for life. Read more about the benefits of having a personal coach here.
Our coaches have spent years learning about what works and what doesn’t work in terms of getting people fit, and perhaps more importantly, we have learned what works in order to keep people motivated and injury-free so they can stay fit for life.
HERE’S WHAT WE KNOW TODAY:
We believe what Greg Glassman, the founder of CrossFit, articulated in the CrossFit Journal article ‘What is Fitness’. He suggested that in order to gain fitness – be it fitness for life or as an elite athlete – you need to do constantly varied, functional movements at a high intensity.
And nobody said mastering functional movements was easy. So while intensity is important, it’s more important to develop mechanics and consistency first.
Glassman’s concept of fitness, combined with our real life data, tells us that people learn most effectively the higher the coach to student ratio. Ideally, most effective learning happens in a one-on-one, or at the very least a two-on-one environment.
We’ve also learned that higher coach to student ratios improve longevity and long-term movement patterns, as well as reduce injuries, and help to foster a healthy social community.
Training in a one-on-one or two-on-one environment also means that when it comes time for you to graduate to group classes with other experienced members, you know your body, you know how to scale your movements, and you feel safe and comfortable attending class.
