Our group classes have a variety of benefits that are offered to our athletes. Right from Strength Training, Gymnastics Skill Training, Endurance Training, Olympic Weightlifting, Fun Games & Mobility classes you get a holistic approach to Fitness with us.
When properly performed, strength training can provide significant functional benefits and improvement in overall health and well-being, including increased bone, muscle, tendon, and ligament strength and toughness, improved joint function, reduced potential for injury, increased bone density, increased metabolism, increased fitness and improved cardiac function. Training commonly uses the technique of progressively increasing the force output of the muscle through incremental weight increases and uses a variety of exercises and types of equipment to target specific muscle groups. Strength training is primarily an anaerobic activity, although some proponents have adapted it to provide the benefits of aerobic exercise through circuit training.
Gymnastics is one of the three foundational modalities of CrossFit. If gymnastics movements are performed properly, they influence every aspect of your life and have a dramatic effect on your fitness. Gymnastics assist in development of many of the 10 components of fitness: accuracy, agility, balance, coordination, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, power, speed, strength, and stamina. Nothing beats gymnastics in terms of developing the four neurological components of the 10: coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. Furthermore, gymnastics training produces impressive strength gains without requiring an external load.
Weightlifting, sometimes colloquially referred to as Olympic weightlifting, Oly-Lifting, or Olympic Style Weightlifting, is an athletic discipline in the modern Olympic program in which the athlete attempts a maximum-weight single lift of a barbell loaded with weight plates. In comparison with other strength sports, which test limit strength (with or without lifting aids), weightlifting tests aspects of human ballistic limits (explosive strength); the lifts are therefore executed faster—and with more mobility and a greater range of motion during their execution—than other strength movements. The lifts performed in the sport of weightlifting, and in particular their component lifts (e.g. squats, deadlifts, cleans), are commonly used by elite athletes in other sports to train for both explosive and functional strength.
Metabolic conditioning is one of the fast becoming trends in the fitness industry. As a matter of fact, you might be doing it without realizing that your workout follows its principles. Often regarded as MetCon, Metabolic Conditioning is a hot term today, as coaches and trainers from various disciplines put their clients through the sweat-inducing workout type. It is a method of training that involves a very high work rate, using exercises designed to burn more calories during your workout and maximise calories burned after your workout. These routines are intended to increase your body’s storage and delivery of energy for any activity. It includes high-intensity circuit-type workouts that often involve challenging the total body, compound exercises and very short recovery intervals.
Mobility refers to our ability to move freely without stress on the body. Our flexibility is dependent on the range of motion of our muscles. The two are not the same, but are not mutually exclusive. Good mobility can assist your flexibility and vice versa. Mobility training can improve the range of motion of our joints and muscles. It can assist in improving our posture. Mobility training can alleviate ‘everyday’ aches and pains as well as improve our body awareness.
