The version of CrossFit you see on TV is actually rare (<1%) compared to the amount of everyday folks who do CrossFit as their general physical preparedness (GPP) program. However, even at an everyday level, there is some level of competition due to our recording scores, having a suggested “Rx” (prescribed) workout of the…
FITNESS FOR EVERYDAY PEOPLE
“Kanna” is Icelandic for “explore” or “investigate.” (It also means “pot of coffee.”) We believe you should use your fitness in the real world for traveling, picking up your kids, and living a long, healthy lifestyle. We believe CrossFit is the best general fitness program out there and that it’s for everyone that wants to get fit. Whether you are a former collegiate athlete, a couch potato, or somewhere in between, we will meet you at your fitness level and raise you up.
Anybody can do CrossFit, but CrossFit isn’t for everyone. It takes humility, grit, and patience to be successful. We don’t require you to be strong, fast, or already fit to start CrossFit – we only ask that you have an open mind and a willingness to learn. In fact, the people who come in already thinking they’re in shape usually don’t last long if their ego gets in the way! Everyone will modify the workout to their own needs and abilities, but we are all in it together. And all of this is done in a fun, safe environment led by highly qualified coaches.
COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT CROSSFIT
You belong or have belonged to a CrossFit box and have moved or are looking for a change. You can demonstrate movements like the box jump, snatch, hang power clean, kettlebell swing, and other common CrossFit movements. If so, click below to contact us so we can setup a 30-45 min. test-out and get you started in our classes. If we feel like there is a deficiency in movement, we may recommend our Base Camp Course or 1-on-1 coaching for a few sessions.
You already belong to a CrossFit box, but you’re in town for work or visiting friends/family and want to get a WOD in. When we say things like box jump, power snatch, hang clean, kettlebell swing, burpee, etc. you can demonstrate those movements for us.
BRAND NEW TO CROSSFIT:
Your friends convinced you to check CrossFit out. You’ve seen it on TV and you finally want to know what your friends mean when they say they “PR’d their snatch.” CrossFit is not just a 60 minute class that you drop into every so often like some other exercise programs out there. Think of it more like learning a language, martial art, or dance. You might not know much coming in, but over time, we coach you up different learning progressions. We teach you effective movement, proper nutrition, and provide community and support that other places cannot. It doesn’t matter what age, shape, or size you are because we believe people of all ages and abilities can improve their overall fitness in a fun and challenging environment. For those that are new to CrossFit, follow the steps below to get started.
Our coaches are educators of movement and performance. You pay good money for instruction, feedback, and encouragement and you will get exactly those things in our classes. Our team holds some of the highest qualifications possible in the fitness industry and we approach our job with professional enthusiasm. Never ones to settle, we are constantly educating ourselves on the most effective methods to get you in the best shape of your life!

There is an evolution of fitness offerings and it’s a positive one. We’re seeing more micro gyms pop up offering all sorts of focused disciplines. Yoga studios have been around for awhile now, but in the past 10 years we have seen more spin, Barre, bootcamp, weightlifting, and of course, CrossFit gyms open their doors…
WHAT IS INTERMITTENT FASTING? Just as the name implies, it’s a term to imply a period of not eating. However, this can be implemented in many different ways. Some folks will go 16 hours not eating each day while others will do 24 hours a couple of times a week. There are no absolute “rules”…
