A lot of athletes will look to give each WOD their all and that’s great, but sometimes going 100 percent is the wrong strategy. Let’s look at a workout we had awhile ago which was 30 hang squat snatches and 30 TTB. The prescribed weight was fairly heavy 135/95. Most people would see the workout…
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 book your 30-45 min. test-out and get you started in our classes. If we feel like there is a deficiency in movement quality, we may recommend our Base Camp Course or private 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.

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.

Kanna has such a great community. I love working out with coaches and members who encourage me to do my best.Becca N.
I’m always fascinated with other people’s habits, so when Robb Wolf started writing about his training and eating habits, I thought I would do the same. This is both a way to offer information to the curious of mind, but also as a longer journal entry for me to keep track of where I’ve been….
If you do CrossFit for long enough, you’ll eventually do enough reps to earn yourself a blister or a rip. The multitude of lightweight cleans or snatches or even lots of toes-to-bar and pull-ups can be pretty punishing on an athlete’s hands. Here are a few tips, techniques, and products you can use to make your hands…
