Group Training

Do I have to be in shape to start? A fitness tip from Susan!

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

Susan came to us "in the worst shape of (her) life."  As a former athlete, she knew what to do, but needed the extra something that Nation has to get back in shape.  She decided to "give it a shot."  And never left. 

We asked what's different here?

The camaraderie--you look forward to seeing everyone here.  Everyday is  different.  Machines are all the same. There's such support from other people.  You have a trainer with you every single day.  They motivate and correct so you can see if you have improper technique.  

(This is what group training is all about--working with a coach)

What would you say to those who ask about it?

1. You don't have to be in shape. It's kinda the idea of coming here--to get in shape. 

2. You might see CrossFit on TV and these off the chart people, but don't think that's all that's here--you'll be shocked.  There are normal looking people!  I think is so great because it's such a variety of people. You do what you can, the weight you can. I can't do what some of these people do.  Your trainers modify it for you.  (that's our job!!)

and.... to anybody out there who wants to try??

"You're a fool if you don't!"

That's our Susan!!  CrossFit On!

Notes on the upcoming programming:  We will be performing strength couplets for several cycles.  Each couplet requires a 10 minute warm up to get to your working weight.  Please keep track of how much you lift.  We will be doing sets of 8, 6, 4, and 2.  You will also see progressions for HSPU, Pull ups, muscle ups and other gymnastic work.  Stick to your progression to be the most successful in your endeavor.
