Our coaches will assist to ensure proper form and weight. This can vary and be adjusted based on skill and experience.  It is a motivating individual effort with an encouraging group.

Stronger 4 Life (Beginners/ages 50+)
BEGINS Jan. 4th!!!!

What sets Strong 4 Life apart from our other programs: Strong 4 Life is designed for a target audience of (50+) but is equally adapted to clients of any age who have injuries or movement / range-of-motion limitations that threaten their daily functionality. (E.g. Early-Stage Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Knee/Hip/Shoulder surgery/replacement, Sarcopenia, etc.) STRONG4LIFE Method focuses on four pillars of longevity; balance, posture, strength and independence. The programing draws from the fundamental roots of CrossFit and other Functional Movement exercise programs to emphasis the development of strength and mobility to support “everyday life” activities, thereby improving the quality of life and maintaining that quality of physical acuity to a much greater age. We’re not training seniors to compete in the CrossFit Games. We are training them to compete in the “game of life” for as long as possible.
