What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program built on constantly varied, functional movements performed at a high intensity. It was developed to prepare individuals to face all physical tasks with the highest level of performance. CrossFit programming delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. This style of programming is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. CrossFit methodology has been used by the military, elite athletes, weekend warriors, general public, children and elderly allowing them to distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.
Why CrossFit Talon?
We define fitness differently than your typical “Globo-gym”. Our definition of fitness is the ability to perform at any and all physical tasks, even unknown tasks, and encompasses all 10 domains of Fitness (Cardiovascular endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, & accuracy).
*Fitness is not defined inside the walls of a gym; it is defined each and every day by your ability to deal with the challenges of life. Our life is full of movement. Like our ancestors, our bodies are designed to stand, sit, squat, throw, lift, push, pull, climb, run, and of course, jump. These natural, primal, movements are the basis of the exercises included in our training. By training with CrossFit Talon, we are “reconditioning” your bodies to function in a manner that they were designed. We intentionally blur the line between strength training and cardio training, just as nature does.
The 10 domains of fitness within each workout
At CrossFit Talon, all sessions are under the guidance of a CrossFit Certified Trainer, approximately 1 hour and consist of a dynamic warm-up, strength/skill development, WOD (workout of the day) and cool-down giving you a comprehensive full-body workout in under an hour. The instructor-led and peer-driven classes provide an excellent mixture of individual coaching and group motivation. The WOD’s are constantly varied and unique, combining pushups, pull-ups, sit-ups with gymnastics, power & Olympic Lifts, kettlebells, jumping and running. Some workouts are done for time and others for maximum reps, these constantly varied WOD’s allow for endless possibilities with the end result being you working hard and never getting bored. The people who train at CrossFit Talon have a wide variety of fitness levels, backgrounds and abilities. The common thread amongst our diverse clientele is their commitment to better health and fitness. Our members typically train at CrossFit Talon 3-6 days per week.
