SLC CROSSFIT IS NOT JUST A GYM….
We are a community of amazing individuals dedicated to their physical and mental development. Each person here is committed to working towards their goals and supporting those around them doing the same. We respect hard work, dedication, and each other. Our community is lead by a collection of the best and brightest fitness professionals in the industry with a long history of helping others reach their goals. Together we accomplish amazing things.
Fitness here is seen as a long term, sustainable journey. As a society, we no longer have jobs that give us the proper amount of exercise to keep us healthy. We no longer hunt and follow our food in order to eat. These are the type of activities that we were made for, but for most of us, we sit at a desk all day developing poor posture, limited range of motion and weaknesses that would have killed our ancestors. In this day and age we must accept the idea that we need to incorporate an exercise program in to our daily routine. We need to unwind the years of abuse that we have a subjected our bodies to. We need to learn to eat properly, move functionally, fully, and without pain. We need to develop a base of strength that allows us to be strong, independent, and perform challenging tasks well in to our golden years. At SLC CrossFit, we believe we have the solution to the decline in American society. We welcome you to the community of people that are striving to be their best. No matter where you are on your fitness journey- just starting, professional athlete, we can make you better.
Is Crossfit Right For Me?
Absolutely! Your needs and the Olympic/Professional athlete’s differ by degree not kind. Increased power, strength, cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, flexibility, stamina, coordination, agility, balance, and coordination are each important to the world’s best athletes and to our grandparents.
The amazing truth is that the very same methods that elicit optimal response in the Olympic or professional athlete will optimize the same response in the elderly. Of course, we can’t load your grandmother with the same squatting weight that we’d assign an Olympic skier, but they both need to squat. In fact, squatting is essential to maintaining functional independence and improving fitness. Squatting is just one example of a movement that is universally valuable and essential yet rarely taught to any but the most advanced of athletes.
This is a tragedy. Through painstakingly thorough coaching and incremental load assignment CrossFit has been able to teach anyone who can care for themselves to perform safely and with maximum efficacy the same movements typically utilized by professional coaches in elite and certainly exclusive environments.
