CROSSFIT

CrossFit is a community driven strength and conditioning program based upon constantly varied, functional movement, performed at high intensity. CrossFit has been implemented by police and fire academies, law enforcement tactical operations teams, military Special Forces units, champion mixed martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.

Our programs are all scalable to your fitness level. In other words, it’s you against the workout—you get to decide exactly how intense your workout will be.

One of the best things about CrossFit is that every program is scalable to each individual’s fitness level, so whether you’re a serious athlete or working out for the first time, CrossFit is for you.

Yes, CrossFit is for everyone. No matter how bad of shape you think you’re in, CrossFit is designed around scaling the workout to accommodate every fitness level. Combined with the personal attention you will receive from our coaches, this model ensures safe and effective progression through the scaling process until you are performing at your personal best.

The only way you are going to get big is if you are eating to get big. Alternately, the only way you are going to get lean is if you are eating to get lean. No one gets “body-building big” just by doing CrossFit. Nutrition is the main ingredient and we offer Nutrition and Wellness options as well.

Yes, Yes and Yes! Krav Maga by definition gives a smaller/weaker person real life street advantage against a larger/stronger assailant. Women are naturally targeted for various assaults, from domestic violence to robberies to attacks of a sexual nature, date-rapes and stalkers. Unlike other martial arts which rely on a person’s strength and size for advantage Krav Maga will give you the edge you need to never be a part of the statistics.

No. Krav Maga was designed for the Israeli Defense Forces, where men and women have to be able to protect themselves in all situations, so that’s how our program works too.
