|3,2 ,1, GO! That's the sound of Heber Valley CrossFit launching it's new facility in the beautiful, quiet town of Heber. No, there are no treadmills, ellipticals, tv's or juice bar. CrossFit is the sport of fitness and members of the community are already representing the sport of fitness and town well.
Every day the workouts are different and programed by a Certified CrossFit Coach. They meet in small group sessions scheduled throughout the day. In every crossfit gym you will find some of the following equipment; bumper plates, gymnastic rings, Olympic barbells, kettlebells, giant whiteboards, and a timer. We use weight lifting, gymnastics, and metabolic conditioning to program all crossfit workouts. On the whiteboard you will find the WOD (work out of the day) written out in dry erase marker. As each athlete (yes, they call their members athletes because that’s what you are once you walk into the doors) comes through the door the first thing they check is to see what challenges are in store for them. After a few grumbles, groans, and smiles the member begins going through the warm up that is written next to the WOD. The trainer for that session writes each member’s name on the board, so they can be properly scored for their work out that day. The score isn’t to see who the best in class is, but it is a way to track progress and weaknesses in one’s own fitness. Of course, it doesn’t hurt your pride if you have best score of the day. After the warm up has been completed a trainer will go through skills training on each exercise in the WOD, to properly demonstrate the correct movement patterns required. “3,2,1, GO!” the infamous start to every crossfit wod, in every crossfit gym around the world. The timer begins to tick and the members begin to sweat, pushing themselves past limits they never thought possible.
CrossFitters live by simple standard, actually so simple it can be summed up in a 100 word statement.
" Eat meat and vegtables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train all major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J and snatch. Similarly master the basics of gymnastics: Pull ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups,presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, ect, hard and fast. Five to Six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. "
