What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program, which advocates a constantly varied mix of aerobic exercise, gymnastics (body weight exercises), and Olympic weight lifting. CrossFit Inc. describes its strength and conditioning program as "constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity across broad modal and time domains," with stated goal of improving fitness.

At 1884 CrossFit our goal is to see our Members succeed in their Health and Fitness, regardless of athletic ability and age. The CrossFit 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 programs. Whether you are looking to improve your cardiovascular conditioning or are looking to PR in your lifts, we will work with you to achieve your goals.



How do I get started?

If you are an experienced athlete with CrossFit or Olympic Weight Lifting we require a Test Out class. This is usually a 1 hour class where we will reintroduce and refine your technique for the Olympic Lifts and standard movements seen in the WOD's.

If you are new to CrossFit, we require you to got through Foundations. This program is designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of the CrossFit program. We will go over all the basic and Olympic Weight Lifting, gymnastics movements and any common movements seen in the daily workouts. We will also want to learn about you, what your goals are, and how we can help you achieve them.

The Test Out and Foundations class can be done in private or with a group. For more information, or to set up a time to attend a class, please contact Whitney Dahms; wdahms@gmail.com.
