CrossFit WOD

WHAT CROSSFIT WOD IS ALL ABOUT

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.

High Intensity: This is relative to the person’s ability or A.K.A. “Relative Intensity”. Your form on the movements is still very important in order to perform safe manageable movement. For most, the intensity level will come with good coaching and comfort level of the movement.

The Metcon combines high intensity training and functional movements. This encompasses fitness across the physical skills of respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.

Coaches will push you, coaches will train you in proper technique, coaches will encourage you and hold you to standards in WOD class. Work is scaled to be aligned with your current fitness and strength level. Sessions are 1-hour.
