Foundations provides people new to CrossFit with the opportunity to learn about basic techniques, terminology, pre-workout warm ups and exercises before participating in regular classes.
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.
This class is specifically designed for people who are interested in a less-intense,crossfit style workout, without heavy weights. You will be coached in appropriate movement mechanics and we will modify the workout to your individual needs. A great workout for anyone from a first timer to a seasoned athlete.
At crossfit mt.hood we run an Olympic lifting program separate from our regular classes. The program runs for 6 weeks every 10 weeks. It focuses on the Clean andJerk 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!
The program has a combination of age-appropriate weightlifting and gymnastics with high intensity training to deliver optimal fitness and performance, as well as establish a lifetime love of fitness.
A three week program designed to introduce you to basic strike, kick and blocking techniques paired with strength & conditioning with a general focus on agility, balance and stamina.
