The programming of CrossFit is based on gymnastics, weightlifting and mono-structural movements. You will become stronger in all of these areas therefore making your potential to move your own body weight or external objects that much greater.
At CrossFit Mt. Hood we run an Olympic lifting program separate from our regular classes. This program begins the first Monday of each month meeting twice a week for a total of 8 classes. It focuses on the Clean and Jerk and the Snatch. The class gets progressively more challenging and technical. This class is for all levels and abilities. Olympic lifting is great for developing strength, power and body control. It’s also a hell of a lot of fun!
