This class is the bread and butter of CrossFit St. Louis. Each hour will consist of a warm-up, some mobility work, strength and skill work, and a Metcon (timed) work out of the day (WOD). WODs are challenging but teach you to push yourself beyond what you think you are capable of.
A CrossFit WOD is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.
Constantly varied: The workouts are very seldom the same. There are many different variables we can change (i.e. movement, repetition count, time & weight). These are varied depending on the objective of the day’s workout.
Functional Movements: The exercises or movements performed are based on what you might do on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. By practicing everyday movements we become functionally stronger & prolong the ability to perform daily tasks.
