Your back and thighs and wrists and calves are going to be sore this month as we show you the most efficient ways for your musculature to operate. I promise, it stops hurting after about a month. My mother is 62, a librarian, with multiple knee and ankle injuries/surguries...
We take the time to ensure proper body mechanics before we send you to our intense general population. We teach you the POSE before we send you to set 400m PR's. We perfect your air squat before we let you shoulder a barbell. We train you in a hollow body before we send you to the rings
I don’t even know you and my answer is yes! CrossFit is for everyone and anyone. The needs of an Olympic athlete and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Regardless of your skill level, you will fit in here. We have a mixture of beginner CrossFitters to elite CrossFitters and we all work side by side as a team!
NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!!! This is often a misconception about CrossFit. Please do not let your current fitness level deter you from giving CrossFit a try! All of our movements and workouts are scalable – meaning we can completely adjust them to your fitness level and ability.
CrossFit methods differ from your typical gym in many ways. You are not paying just to use our facility and equipment. Instead you are paying for result-driven training from our experienced coaches. Our classes are small in size (9 to 1 or better) in order to enable more one-on-one attention from our coaches. It is like getting personal training without the steep price tag. Our focus is on quality, not quantity!
Absolutely! Everything you do at Tiger's Den CrossFit is overseen by a certified Coach. However, it is a sport, we train at high intensity and sore muscles, calluses, and blisters are normal.
Yes, you are still able to participate in our classes. You are taught proper form and movement which can help in the rehabilitation process and promote healing. We will work with you and the injury to provide you with a safe and functional training environment.
We run, jump, pull, push, climb, squat, lift, press, carry, throw and catch. We believe in utilizing our entire body. We have also been known to have a little fun… we live by the motto work hard, play hard! A typical CrossFit class starts with a warm-up followed by a WOD (workout of the day) which is led by a certified CrossFit coach. You can expect to be at the gym for about 1 hour depending on the workout.
