ABOUT PORT CROSSFIT
Port CrossFit: Building a Fit Community
We have spent many years studying, learning and experimenting with ways to get people fit in a safe and effective manner. We have learned how to keep our clients motivated so that rather than looking for a “quick fix,” They can see benefit in adopting fitness as a lifestyle.
What is Fitness? CrossFit defines fitness as “constantly varied, functional movements, at high intensity.” We follow this formula that has been proven not just across general fitness population, but also exercise enthusiasts and high ranked professional athletes.
Although an effective formula, the movements, training program and methodology is most effective when learned slowly. Our movements range from low skill levels to complex, some can be done slow and other must be done explosively. For this reason we strongly recommend that our athletes display safe and effective mechanics prior to increasing intensity. These movements are taught best with a watchful eye and the skillset of a great coach.
In over a decade of experience, We have learned that a higher coach to athlete ratio provides a better learning experience but also a safer environment. It allows the athletes to learn better movement patterns and as a by product yields a healthier community of people. This is where we separate ourselves in the community. At Port CrossFit you will start out in a safe one on one environment with your coach who guide you each step along the way.
What’s Our Recipe
At PCF we focus on making sure that you are fully prepared and ready for our group classes. We are focused on lifelong functional fitness for our athletes…not just throwing you into a class environment without a knowledge of the movements and proper technique. Our group classes are for our members that have obtained a proficiency in functional movements and a good baseline of fitness. How do we do this?
- First, we require all of our clients to go through a minimum of (2) 1 on 1 training sessions where they can work at their own pace in learning what is required in our group classes. We know that this may not be as exciting as training with a bunch of people at high intensity, but it’s appropriate for the long game.
- Next, we purposely cap our group classes to no more than 12 per class. Where other gyms may say “the more the merrier” or be happy to have as many members as possible, we are a little different. Not only will we cap our class sizes but we will also close enrollment to ensure that our members are getting the intimate experience they deserve.
- While in class, we thoroughly explain your workout, demonstrate the movements, critique when needed, and as always give our extra motivation where we see fit.
At Port CrossFit, we thoroughly enjoy making our community a fun, motivating, safe and effective environment to train. Our door is always open to chat with our members as well as listen to their suggestions in what they may need to improve their lifestyle.
