CrossFit

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 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 13,000. 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.

Performance

Our performance classes are geared towards all levels but really calls out to those with a slightly competitive edge. Typically broken down to a strength piece followed by metabolic conditioning, our hour long performance class will cover Olympic lifts, power lifts, and gymnastics. Coaches will know when to stick to the basics and when to advanced the movement on an individual and group level. 

Fitness

The fitness program offered at BAA is for those who aren't so competitive with those around. The classes will cover the same movements as the performance class. However, the fitness class will not include advanced gymnastic movements in a high rep style for time in metabolic pieces. This is a great class to take if you have preexisting injuries or need modifications for certain movements. 

Specialty Classes

Mornings are hard and we get it. We know it takes a while for the body and the brain to wake up and move efficiently. Because of this, our morning specialty classes are broken down to include the modalities of CrossFit in a grouped way. Monday and Wednesday you will cover strength movements. Tuesday and Thursday are geared towards metabolic conditioning. These classes also serve as a great supplement to make you faster in our CF conditioning pieces programmed in the evening classes.
