Crossfit Workouts in Commerce City

As a workout, CrossFit has been consistently gaining in popularity since its inception in 2000. Ever since Greg Glassman, the “father” of CrossFit, decided to develop a workout that would enhance his strength, CrossFit has been shown to be one of the best ways to become fit. Glassman envisioned a way to achieve physical preparedness for living life rather than developing one particular set of movements.


What Is CrossFit?

It seems like everyone is talking about CrossFit these days, but not everyone knows exactly what it is. One common descriptions of CrossFit is this: “constantly varied, functional movements done at a high intensity.” At Anchor CrossFit, we believe this workout is one of the best ways possible to not only get a body that is healthy but a body that fights illness effectively.

In general, CrossFit is built on these 10 fitness domains:

1. Accuracy
2. Agility
3. Balance
4. Cardiovascular/respiratory endurance
5. Coordination
6. Flexibility
7. Power
8. Speed
9. Stamina
10. Strength


Who Can Do CrossFit?

It may sound like a cliché, but it is true: Anybody can do CrossFit, regardless of age, regardless of ability, regardless of athleticism. In our classes, you will find people of all fitness levels and of all ages. Each person can follow a program that meets his or her specific needs.

Do you need to be “in shape” to start CrossFit? The answer is an emphatic no! The beauty of the CrossFit workout is that it is set up so you can begin any time, regardless of your current fitness level. Our one-on-one coaching with our experienced coaches will ensure you start out slowly, taking care to learn the correct form so you gain fitness without injury.


Is CrossFit Safe?

Contrary to what you may have heard, the answer is yes! CrossFit is safe because the exercises use movements your body is already designed to do—and with CrossFit your body will be able to do those movements better.

Whether you are picking up an object, carrying an object, or setting down an object (things we do in everyday life), CrossFit will ensure you do them more efficiently. The WODs at Anchor CrossFit in Commerce City are built on these basic movements


What Kind of Workout Can I Expect?

There are a lot of things to like about CrossFit, but something participants point out over and over is the fact that workouts are intense but they are short. Encompassing a unique combination of springs, gymnastics, plyometrics, and Olympic weightlifting, the workouts are challenging and effective. And it’s why CrossFit enthusiasts keep on coming back for more.

Many people are under the impression that they have to do hours of cardio each week to get in shape. CrossFitters know that high-intensity training that incorporates lifts such as the deadlift, squat, snatch, clean, and overhead press, mean lower body fat after just 10 weeks.

Another huge benefit of CrossFit is the camaraderie of the group format. At Anchor CrossFit in Commerce City, we provide our members with a welcoming atmosphere. From the very first time you work out with us, you will find yourself amidst fun and friendly fitness enthusiasts who will encourage you and help keep you motivated.
