What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program based on functional movements. This means that the things we do in the gym are also things we do outside the gym: run, jump, push, pull, climb, squat, lift, press and more. Besides being scalable for any ability level, our workouts are constantly varied and increase physical competence in 10 fitness domains: Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy. CrossFit workouts produce results.
What is the Masters’ Program?
The Masters are one of CrossFit’s fastest growing age groups. CrossFit Canton has created a community of 50+ years and older athletes in a powerful and uplifting atmosphere. The beauty of CrossFit is that it is infinitely scalable so some athletes in this age range may choose to participate in our regular classes over the Masters’ class.
The Masters’ Programming differs from our regular programming in that we place a larger focus on balance, mobility and flexibility and core strength. Our method allows exposure to the workouts at a challenging and tolerable intensity and produces results. Classes are capped at 8 athletes to increase personalized attention.
What are the benefits of CrossFit Masters’ Program?
One of the great things about CrossFit is that anyone can participate. Our master athletes enjoy life by becoming stronger and fitter and maintaining better coordination and balance. Exercising with functional movements improves bone density, reduces blood pressure, and increases strength and energy. The fitness regimen that a master requires to maintain physical independence is the same for a professional athlete looking to maintain physical dominance in his or her sport. The difference is degree, not type.
