comming soon - CrossFit Greektown
We are very excited to announce that as part of our upcoming expansion we will be an Official CrossFit Affiliate Facility! The new CrossFit part of our business will be known as CrossFit Greektown. Many of you may be wondering how this new addition will change the current Energia. We want to assure everyone that CrossFit will be a new addition to our existing business - we will continue to offer all of our existing programming including our Kettlebell Classes. We are excited because CrossFit will be a perfect addition that enhances all of our current programming. Energia is already a business founded on the benefits of cross training and that's what CrossFit is all about. Below is more information regarding CrossFit so read on, and feel free to ask us questions!
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is High Intensity Constantly Varied Functional Movement.
What are the benifits of CrossFit?
Quite simply if you do CrossFit regularly you will attain your physical potential. CrossFit's specialty is not specializing, and so we aim to improve strength, power, stamina, agility, accuracy, flexibility, coordination, endurance, speed & balance. By improving upon all of these attributes a CrossFit athlete is ready for anything, from running a 5K race to trying cross-country skiing for the first time to carrying your suitcases through the airport. Do CrossFit regularly and you will be ready for whatever life throws at you.
What will I do in CrossFit class?
Every CrossFit class is different and is based around a WOD (workout of the day). Every class will include a warm-up, instruction/review on the specific movements in the WOD, and stretching.
What kind of equipment is used in a CrossFit class?
CrossFit classes can utilize a wide range of equipment including barbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, skipping ropes & rowing machines to name a few. In addition it's common to perform movements only using bodyweight such as pull-ups, push-ups, box jumps and running.
How can I learn CrossFit safely?
It is important to learn the CrossFit movements in a safe way. That's why we will make it a requirement that every CrossFit participant first complete our CrossFit Foundations classes before participating in a regular CrossFit class. The CrossFit Foundations classes will focus on learning the core CrossFit movements in a safe, controlled way, but they will also include a challenging WOD too. All CrossFit classes are led by a certified CrossFit coach who has completed a certification course & test, and who has experience doing CrossFit WODs. They are right there with you to supervise, correct form, help you scale the WOD and answer any questions or concerns.
I've heard CrossFit is really intense and I'm not super fit - can I do it?
Yes, anyone and everyone can do CrossFit! All of the CrossFit movements and WODS can be scaled, so that the super-fit experienced people can work out alongside the less fit & less experienced. Our CrossFit coaches will help everyone scale the workouts and suggest any necessary modifications to ensure the WODs are attainable, challenging, safe & fun for everyone.
I hear CrossFit is dangerous - will I get injured?
It is possible to get injured in any sporting activity, but the goal is to minimize the risk as much as possible. We do everything we can to help minimize the risk by putting the emphasis on safety & proper form. Our CrossFit coaches are trained and certified to correct form and suggest modifications to make it as safe as possible.
