What to Expect
CrossFit can be done in many ways and it will differ from one gym to the next.
At Jayhawker CrossFit, we aim to provide excellent instruction and
a challenging yet enjoyable experience in every class.
With classes we have a general warm up consisting of full body movements and general calisthenics as well as agility or coordination work.
We follow the warm up with a combination of skill and strength work, using a wide range of traditional strength training movements, odd object lifts (kettlebells, medicine balls, etc) as well as basic gymnastics skills (pull-ups, push-ups, handstands).
We finish the class with conditioning workouts that will combine the strength and skill movements in a circuit format!
Every day is a new workout,
which provides challenge and interest.
Each class does the same routine for the day, which adds a slight competition factor into the equation. This competition is to boost the intensity and results of the WODs, but remember that you are your only real competition. With the WODs we track times and/or reps for a score, helping us see results over time. When a WOD is repeated, our goal is always to have added reps or to have reduced time. This enables us to track results, and apply the method ,over and over, to know the program is working.
Classes run about an hour, but are scheduled in 90 minute blocks.
