What Is CrossFit?
“CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness” — CrossFit.com
How Do I Get Started at CrossFit Vicenza?
Because we are a non-profit military affiliate, all of the classes we offer are free. There is no prerequisite to attending our courses, i.e. you do not have to take a foundations course.
Based on your experience level, there are a few ways you can get started with CrossFit Vicenza.
- Just Show Up. If you have some experience with CrossFit and functional fitness, just show up a little early to the 5:30PM class. Ask for one of the trainers and we will get you oriented with how we operate and make suggestions for what classes might work well for you.
- Attend a Foundations Course. If you’re new to CrossFit, the best and easiest way to formally get started is to attend a Foundations Class. We organize these free, introductory sessions on a monthly basis, usually on Saturday mornings. Check our events page for up-to-date details and registration info. While not a “prerequisite,” the class is a structured way to provide you with a sound foundation on functional fitness, prepare you to execute our workouts, and allow you to meet some people along the way.
