Yes! We offer Level 1 classes at all of our scheduled class times. An explanation of this is on the “Get Started” page. If you are a seasoned CrossFitter, we offer a week free so you can try us out and make sure we are a good fit for you! If you are wanting to go straight into regular CrossFit programmed classes (Level 2), we offer our On-Ramp program. This meets two days a week for three weeks to teach all of the Olympic lifts and gymnastics. This is included in our new member sign up special. Three months for $250. More details on the “Get Started” page.
We also offer a Saturday Community WOD at 8:30am that anyone can come to free of charge. You may also come by and meet our coaches and observe a class anytime, please check our schedule and stop in.
In the same way muscles must be taken beyond their limits and torn to stimulate growth, your ability to process oxygen must be pushed out of equilibrium in order to increase your capacity to process it. Running at some level below your aerobic threshold (i.e. less than 100% VO2 max) will do little if anything to increase this ability. To push it out of equilibrium and induce growth, you have to workout at 200% or more of your aerobic ability. In metabolic terms, you need to work the high-intensity phosphagenic and glycolytic pathways in order to improve the medium-low intensity aerobic pathway.
