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. Since then it has evolved to be an all inclusive fitness program for people of any athletic capability. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, sports, and life all 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 armed forces, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
Despite what you might see on the internet, you don’t need to be made of rippling muscles to do CrossFit. Come with the ability to convert oxygen into CO2, the drive to be better than you were yesterday, and we’ll show you how to do the rest. All members who are new to CrossFit will start with our On-ramp course (six classes) where we will teach you our basic movements, techniques, terminology and warm-up protocols before we throw you into the regular classes! In fact, it is so important that you understand the basics before you take on our regular classes, that this course is mandatory for people who are new to CrossFit. We want to set you up for success so you never feel lost or unsure of yourself.
On-Ramp classes are kept to very small sizes to ensure one-on-one attention. As you work through the six consecutive sessions you and your fellow newcomers will learn about the correct form for basic, functional CrossFit movements, and slowly work up to increase your level of intensity. On-Ramp is the perfect place to ask questions and make some new friends before transitioning into our regular classes. On-ramp classes will be every Tuesday and Thursday at 6am. The time of on ramp classes is subject to change depending on the needs of the class.
In short, yes Crossfit can be dangerous. But not in the ways you might believe. With inexperienced coaches, shoddy equipment and the wrong attitude, CrossFit can be very dangerous – but so can riding your bike or driving your car. The experienced and proven CrossFit coaches you’ll find at Roux will ensure that you’re training in the safest most effective and efficient way possible.
A WOD is the workout of the day. We program a different WOD everyday.
Drop-ins are always welcome at CrossFit Roux! Just call us to let us know you’re coming in, and one of our coaches will be ready to show you around.
Yes! If you’re being held back by 1 or 2 movements, or you are training for a competition and would like unique programming to help you hit new goals, our one-on-one personal training sessions will be the most effective and efficient way to get to that next level.
