According to CrossFit Inc. "CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
CrossFit delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. CrossFit’s specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed CrossFit workouts and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes."
This means CrossFit is a radically different approach to fitness from your previous gym. Instead of the traditional weight machines, treadmills and racks of dumbbells, CrossFit Sixth City features barbells, kettlebells, pull-up rigs, climbing ropes, plyo boxes and medicine balls. Unlike completing the same weight routine followed by 45 minutes of cardio on an elliptical, our workouts are designed to be intense and constantly varied.
Utilizing a high-energy group atmosphere, CrossFit Sixth City offers a highly experienced training staff and supportive community focused on transforming not only your body, but your life.
Note: all athletes new to CrossFit who wish to participate in WOD classes must complete the introductory OnRamp program first!
The goal of our Olympic Lifting program is to provide clients with increased strength in power lifts, as well as develop technique and proficiency in Olympic style lifts. Through general physical preparedness, mobilization and strength development programs, participants will receive training both according to their goals and to the objectives of the class.
The program will run 4 days a week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 5:30 pm and Saturday at 10:00 am. Clients are encouraged to attend those time slots as there will be a coach present to coach this specific program, but are not limited to these hours for the programming.
All new clients will start with an assessment of their mobility and mechanics. If mobility issues are found clients will be put through a mobility and general physical preparedness cycle. If the client’s mobility is acceptable they will start a weeklong 1on1 technical development class, where they will learn the classic Olympic lifts. After completion of the technical development class clients will either enter into a competition-style program, or a non-specific Olympic lifting program.
CSC realizes that the goals and ability levels of clients differ greatly and that Olympic lifting in and of itself is a highly individualized sport. With that in mind the program will cater more to the individual than set parameters excluding the non-specific Olympic program.
WHAT: The 1on1 OnRamp program is Cleveland Strength and Conditioning 's introductory class to learn the basic CrossFit movements and Olympic lifts. The goals of OnRamp are two-fold:
In each class we will instruct warm -‐up and mobility techniques, teach new skills and functional movements necessary to participate in CrossFit WOd classes, complete a workout reinforcing those skills, and discuss nutrition.
