General Athletics is a fitness playground, offering group personal training as well as individual and team sessions, where the coaching, training and programming is centered on the CrossFit philosophy and methodology. Our focus is on workouts that are constantly varied, functional, and performed at high intensity. Each workout is scaled to an individual’s fitness level. Constantly varied means that at every class you attend the movements, times and strength sessions will change. Functional movements are the normal movements your body goes through in life like running, lifting, squatting, pushing and pulling. Our coaches work with our athletes to push them as hard as possible while maintaining a safe, encouraging and fun environment. We also incorporate this same methodology into our other programs such as CrossFit Kids.
Our workouts are designed to prepare you for any of life’s actual physical demands. We understand that those demands include yard work, doing the laundry, rushing to catch the bus or helping a friend move. That’s why you’ll have workouts that involve pulling and pushing, lifting from the ground and pushing overhead and running. That’s also why you won’t find weight machines and sections of elliptical machines and treadmills. What you will see is space to run, jump, squat and lift. The equipment you’ll find are pull-up bars, weighted balls, kettlebells and barbells. The goal of each workout is to improve your overall fitness. Fitness is defined by Greg Glassman by identifying ten standard traits and programming to improve all aspects. These ten standards are: cardio/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance, coordination and accuracy. By working to improve all aspects and not specializing in any one, General Athletics will leave you better prepared for whatever life throws at you.
