What is a typical class like?

Each class is one-hour long. We start with meeting at the “Whiteboard” to discuss the workout of the day and what the intentions are, how to scale it back, and our two cents on approach. Then we go into a 5-10 minute general warm up as a group that is designed to get the blood pumping, muscles and joints lose, and get you warm. Next, we devote anywhere between 10-20 minutes on our ‘skill sessions.’ These are times when we are working on specific skills (as a group) to improve our technique and/or get stronger. Depending on that day’s focus, you might see barbell work, gymnastic work, plyo boxes, kettlebells, jump rope, and even running mechanics. After that comes the ‘Workout of the Day’ or WOD. Before we yell “3…2…1…GO” we go over all the movements and offer guidance towards the proper scaling of each exercise. After answering all your questions, we start the workout and a coach is always watching each person to be sure they stay safe and motivated. After the WOD, we cool-down and stretch and then you’re free to go!
