We are so much more than your typical gym. Here at CrossFit Lake Placid, we make it our goal to create an environment where people of all backgrounds can come together to form a community focused around health and fitness.
By definition, 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. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness. The community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together is a key component of why CrossFit is so effective. Harnessing the natural camaraderie, competition, and fun of sport or game yields an intensity that cannot be matched by other means. With our knowledgeable staff of trainers, we ensure our members are moving safely and correctly to keep them injury-free and inspired to continue pursuing their health and fitness goals. The long-term result is some amazingly fit people.
The CrossFit class focuses on the Workout of the Day (WOD) as posted on the website. The WODs are scaled and modified to each athlete’s level and performed at the highest intensity that the individual can sustain with good form and proper technique. We will start our Workout of the Day with a warm-up, stretching, and strength/skill work immediately followed by the day’s preprogramed workout. The class concludes with a cool-down, stretch, and mobility exercise.
In addition to our CrossFit Classes and Personal Training, CrossFit Lake Placid also offers Nutrition Counseling and Lifestyle Medicine consultation. Our in-house Doctor can help you implement proven strategies to enhance your health.
Whether you may be looking to lose weight, get stronger, run faster, climb higher, or just be fit, we are here to help guide you on a path to success. Come give us a try!
