The best way to experience CrossFit is to come to a free class at Ballston CrossFit! At Ballston CrossFit you will be challenged and motivated every day with constantly varied high intensity, functional workouts, resulting in a greatly enhanced level of fitness. The video to the right gives you an example of one of these workouts (Workout of the Day - WOD):
We teach basic to advanced level classes in functional exercise, athletic conditioning, plyometrics, kettlebell training, Olympic weightlifting, medicine ball and dumbbell training, power-lifting, gymnastics, rowing, running and jumping rope. The stimulus provided is always varied and the results are dramatic. We have trained people who are extremely diverse in their experience, conditioning, and lives; including students, business executives, stay-at-home moms, athletes, firefighters, grandparents and police. The atmosphere is one of support and camaraderie to anyone willing to put in the work. The things members share are motivation, hard work and honesty. Those are the characteristics that we have built our business and our community upon. We utilize CrossFit as our primary training method, and focus our members on optimizing physical competence in each of 10 recognized fitness domains:
CrossFit is elite fitness for everyone. Our classes and private coaching are based on the CrossFit program originally developed by legendary coach Greg Glassman after his many years of watching, working with, and coaching all types of people – from those merely interested in general fitness to elite athletes.
CrossFit workouts are comprised of constantly varied functional movements (like pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting, running) executed at high intensity. The workouts themselves are completely scalable, which means that a new participant and a CrossFit veteran can complete the same workout with changes in load and intensity. CrossFit workouts will deliver phenomenal fitness in and of themselves or as a compliment to your sport-specific training regime.
If you are someone who:
Is looking to get in shape but can’t face going to a gym;
Has lost interest in your gym routine;
Thinks you don’t have time to exercise;
Is looking to get faster or stronger in your sport; or
Is no longer seeing results with your current training regime;
Then CrossFit is for YOU. Every workout is different, and since you will rarely do the same thing twice, you are less likely to lose interest or get bored than if you were doing the same circuits at the gym three days a week. Because our workouts are just one hour long they can fit into even the busiest schedules. Perhaps most importantly, people who are committed to CrossFit have seen dramatic changes in their speed, strength, performance, and body composition (watch video on man who lost 80 pounds in 6 months:
