In a typical class, we perform functional movements at high intensity, giving you a comprehensive full-body workout in one hour. Classes are instructor-led and peer-driven, providing an excellent mixture of individual coaching and group motivation. At the end of each training session, you will feel invigorated with a sense of accomplishment.
You will also be part of a community when you join Hoosier CrossFit classes. Members of the Hoosier CrossFit community are of like-minded nature; they will encourage your confidence and help boost your intensity. (As you make CrossFit a routine you will see that we really are ‘training for life’.)
What is a typical class at Hoosier CrossFit like?
Members attend 1-hour classes 3,4 or more times a week.
Once you’ve been through the On-Ramp Foundations Course you will sign up for classes. Sign up for the days, times or workouts that best fit your schedule.
Each day is a different core workout.
We program one daily workout that all clients attending class that day will perform called a “Workout Of the Day” or “WOD.” Each day is a different workout based on what the trainers believe best fits the strengths and weaknesses of the current members.
This core workout can last between 5 minutes to 25 minutes on average and the movements and skills are ever changing. We utilize your entire hour with us. Prior to the workout, we include a guided warm up, mobility workout to enhance flexibility, stretching, and re-introduction of skills for the current day’s WOD.
Classes are in a group setting of one to ten people.
We believe in small group personal training in order for you to get the personalization you need, while still participating in the CrossFit community. Having “competitors” completing the same workout as yourself will both push you harder, and have you rooting for your “competition.”
Workouts are varied.
We combine elements of gymnastics, Olympic weightlifting, rowing, and running into our classes so that your workouts are constantly varied and unique, and ensuring that you will always make progress. Some workouts are done for time, others for maximum number of reps. Anyway you slice it you’ll be working hard!
You will never be bored.
The possibilities for fitness are endless: Monday, you could be doing pushups, squats, and pull-ups. Tuesday, you could be doing box jumps, presses, and jump rope. We have a huge number of exercises to choose from, so working out never becomes boring.
Workouts are measurable, observable and repeatable.
Results each day are posted on the whiteboard and recorded. As you continue training, you can track your progress. For example, you might be making a certain movement, holding a certain weight, for a measurable amount of time. Next time you complete that movement, you can re-gauge, retest yourself.
You can track your progress.
Timed workouts produce a competitive nature to fitness just as other sports do. Competition encourages you to not give up and oftentimes push a little harder. The timed results are also a reflection of one aspect of your performance. As you continue with the program you become stronger, faster, more agile, and more flexible. We often look back at old results, and you’ll feel awesome about your accomplishments.
You will notice a difference in your fitness level quickly.
Clients of all ages and fitness levels learn how to properly lower themselves (squat), pick up objects (dead lift), bring objects to their chest (clean), and push objects overhead (push press/push jerk/snatch). We mix these elements of Olympic lifting with a variety of other movements executed at an individual’s highest intensity to achieve health and fitness goals. You will gain unbelievable strength while maintaining cardio respiratory endurance, all in one 5-45 minute workout.
You are joining a community.
Hoosier CrossFit holds regular events—seminars, special workout or diet challenges, and social activities—so as you get to know the people in your workout group each day, you’ll also get other opportunities to meet and chat with other members.
