What is CrossFit

What is CrossFit?

CrossFit by definition is “Constantly Varied Functional Movements performed at High Intensity”. It is a program where ANYONE from an elite athlete to a couch potato to a grandma can reach their peak potential in health and fitness. CrossFit is a fun and effective way to reach any fitness health goals whether it is for job performance, sports specific, quality of life, anything & everything. Every workout we do can be performed by anyone because the fitness needs of an elite athlete to our grandparents differ by degree not by kind, we do movements that everyone can do but the load & intensity will be modified for people at different skill levels.

CrossFit prepares you for the unknown and the unknowable!

Why Tulalip Bay CrossFit?

-Small Group classes where we can work with any fitness level, focus on form & technique and provide quality training by Certified Trainers.

-Functional Movements: We teach movements that your body is made to do, that is functional for your everyday life, such as squatting to sit on your chair (or toilet), picking up your child or grandchild or even moving a box or object…. What this translates into at the gym is Squats, Deadlifts, clean & jerks, pull-ups, running, rowing, etc.

-Constantly Varied: You will not get bored, our workouts are different every day and rarely repeated (only to show improvement in performance). This helps us achieve our peak fitness/health goals, preparing for the unknown, training every body part and fitness domain such as Cardiovascular, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.

-Short Workouts: Intensity is key to achieving our fitness/health goals. Based on Scientific Research High Intensity workouts burn more fat and develop more strength and conditioning.  CrossFit workouts will last typically under 20 minutes.

-Measurable Results: You will be able to record your individual improvements in your workouts, body, and increase performance in any sport you compete in, even if it’s the sport of life.

I am a Woman. Will lifting weights give me HUGE muscles?

This is a common misconception. Women do not have the same testosterone levels as men do. This means women cannot bulk up (without steroids). CrossFit will give you better tone, build lean muscle mass, but you will not look like a Beast, we promise.

How is CrossFit different than P90X?

-P90X is repetitive; CrossFit is constantly varied, done in a hands-on small group setting with certified trainers who have a passion for improving peoples’ health and fitness goals. P90X can’t give you quos to help improve your technique and efficiency.

-CrossFit creates functional results through Constantly Varied Functional Movements performed at High Intensity, P90X practices isolated movements that have little functional value and create little neuroendocrine response.
