What is CrossFit? 

Straight from the official CrossFit website: 

CrossFit is a fitness regimen developed by Greg Glassman over several decades. Glassman, CrossFit's Founder and CEO, was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way: increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. He then created a program specifically designed to improve fitness and health.

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.

The community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together is a key component of why CrossFit is so effective, and it gave birth to a global network of CrossFit affiliates that number over 11,000. Harnessing the natural camaraderie, competition and fun of sport or game yields an intensity that cannot be matched by other means.

The CrossFit program is driven by data. Using whiteboards as scoreboards, keeping accurate scores and records, running a clock, and precisely defining the rules and standards for performance, we not only motivate unprecedented output but derive both relative and absolute metrics at every workout. This data has important value well beyond motivation.

Overall, the aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness supported by measurable, observable and repeatable results. The program prepares trainees for any physical contingency—not only for the unknown but for the unknowable, too. Our specialty is not specializing.

While CrossFit challenges the world’s fittest, the program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual, regardless of experience. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change the program. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind.

You Must Crawl Before You Run...

We get people going by making them take part in our Foundations classes. These are for the individual that wants to ramp up into our fast-paced, group-structured, functional fitness classes. Movement curriculum is sequential, and attendance to all sessions is fundamental for gaining the necessary movement proficiency before entering normal CrossFit class times. Check the schedule for the next foundations class available.

A functional fitness program that combines weightlifting, body weight, cardiovascular, monostructural and basic gymnastic principles to develop you into a very well-rounded machine. The goal is to raise as many fitness markers as possible across the board. We base our program around a solid strength training program to ensure continual results and allow the member/athlete to track progress along the way. Each class a knowledgeable coach will take you through the day's programming (WOD), teaching and fixing technique and form as you go. It's like having a personal trainer at every session.

Taking strength and power to another level.

We have everything you need to become the best Olympic Weightlifter you can be. We have had the joy of being a part of producing some pretty amazing athletes including numerous American Open contenders, two state champs, and produced a handful of state records. 

Our athletes receive comprehensive programming and coaching to keep them growing in the sport. This is a completely separate programming from our CrossFit classes and must be tested into or at least have a foundation of CrossFit, strength training, or Olympic Lifting. We have produced multiple State Record Holders, state Champions and National Qualifying lifters. If you are ready to learn how to lift and embrace the world of Olympic Weightlifting now is your chance.

SHRED: Simple. Honest. Real. Effective. Dieting

Nutrition is an emotional and mental tug of war for most people, we get it. We are those people. 

There are many meal plans out there you can purchase that will tell you exactly what to eat. Most likely they're simple (chicken, brown rice, and broccoli anyone?), they're macro and/or micro-nutrient deficient, and the designer doesn't take the time to educate the client on why the meal plan is the way it is. Those entities would rather sell you a fish than teach you how to fish. If there's one element that sets us apart from other gyms, it's how we incorporate nutrition into our routines, and educate our clients on how to feed themselves. Long term change is hard, but it's proven. We believe it's worth taking our people through each step of the process and educate you along the way. 

This is why we have created:

The Aether Shred

The Aether Shred has developed into an extremely effective 8 week cycle. We start you with a custom meal plan that include shopping list and recipes, and use existing CrossFit, Olympic Weightlifting, and strength training programming to educate and train you to become a top performing athlete, or to just lose weight and be a better you. You're invited to attend nutrition seminars that teach actually teach you, discuss your goals with a coach, and practice making delicious meals that we share via social media and through your meal plan each week as you go. We also go in depth on how to track your foods on My Fitness Pal and live life off your meal plan as well. Overall, the goal is to reach peak muscle gain and weight loss while actually mastering your nutrition. CrossFit class sizes range from 5-15 individuals on any given day. The class schedule can be found at the "Schedule" link above.
