An introduction program is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL for CrossFit. The variety of movements and eventual intensity in some CrossFit workouts require appropriate coaching and exposure for safety and efficacy. Our intro course is called FOUNDATIONS ON-RAMP, and is designed for individuals who want to train in our group CrossFit classes. Each FOUNDATIONS ON-RAMP class includes a warmup, skill review, movement instruction and screening, workout, cool-down and time for questions; all with a dedicated Coach. Emphasis is on movement assessment and technique proficiency. Athletes receive a gradual exposure to the intensity levels experienced in our group classes.

The Tabata workout is a high-intensity training regimen that produces remarkable results. A Tabata workout is an interval training cycle of 20 seconds of maximum intensity exercise, followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated without pause 8 times for a total of four minutes.
Credit for this simple but powerful training method belongs to its namesake, Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo, Japan. Their groundbreaking 1996 study, published in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports & Exercise, provided documented evidence concerning the dramatic physiological benefits of high-intensity intermittent training. After just 6 weeks of testing, Dr. Tabata noted a 28% increase in anaerobic capacity in his subjects, along with a 14% increase in V02Max. (Maximum oxygen consumption). These results were witnessed in already physically fit athletes. The conclusion was that just four minutes of Tabata interval training could do more to boost aerobic and anaerobic capacity than an hour of endurance exercise.
