CrossFit NCTHS

CrossFit NCTHS's goal is to educate students on fitness and nutrition while providing, free of charge, the highest quality fitness experience possible. CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and all of these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, and more. By employing a constantly clvaried approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness. The CrossFit program is driven by data. Keeping accurate records and scores, running a clock, and defining rules and standards for performance allow us to accurately measure gains in fitness. While this CrossFit class will challenge the fittest athletes, the program is designed for universal scalability, making it a perfect application for any kind of committed student, regardless of experience. We scale the old and intensity; we don't change the program.
