CrossFit Classes at Ironstone

The core fitness program at Ironstone is CrossFit. CrossFit is a General Physical Preparedness (GPP) program designed to improve your overall fitness and function so that you look, feel, and perform your best in everyday life. True, balanced fitness will mean sometimes doing the things you don’t currently enjoy.

Why CrossFit?

If you want to improve your overall fitness, improve your body composition, restore function, and feel better CrossFit may be the right choice for you. Athletes vary widely in age from 14 to 65 + and come from a variety of athletic backgrounds. The majority of our new members have limited to no experience with fitness or come from a single exercise background (e.g. running, rowing, or a traditional gym routine) but still need to learn the basics. Many others have been previously involved in fitness and sport but are trying to regain their fitness after some time off or an injury. If you want to lose weight, gain weight, get stronger, move better, or even improve your sport performance dramatically CrossFit can work for you. We strongly believe that CrossFit is the best path to overall fitness that will last for a lifetime.

The other huge advantage to CrossFit is that it uses a community approach to fitness. Group classes help you together with a diverse group of people who share common goals; from it you will develop friendships that will last a lifetime. The shared experience of challenging but rewarding workouts and the gentle pull of your new friends will help you stay committed to your fitness pursuits. When you need that final push, the group will be there to help.

What will a class be like?

In CrossFit every class will be different to a certain degree. We use constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity as the foundation of our program. This means that every day may follow a different format. Expect workouts to vary in length (time), difficulty, intensity, and modality (movements or exercises) from one day to the next. We use exercises and equipment from as many disciplines as we can manage; expect a combination of weightlifting, gymnastics, kettlebell, bodyweight or monostructural conditioning movements, and accessory strength work put together in limitless combinations. To get a feel for what a class may look like check out Today’s class programming and previous workouts at the bottom of this page.

Every CrossFit gym is different because we are not franchises. At Ironstone our classes are actively coached and closely monitored. Expect to be taken through a structured group warmup, a strength or skill session, and a conditioning workout on most days. We cap our class sizes to ensure that everyone gets quality coaching and feedback and we hold safety as an extremely high priority. For this reason, you will need to sign up for class in advance through our online system.

We currently offer 40 CrossFit classes a week at a variety of times including a Beginner Class on Sundays at 9 AM. Check the schedule below for more details. If you have never done CrossFit with us or at another gym before, find out how to get started.
