WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program based upon constantly varied, functional movement, performed at high intensity. The CrossFit training program has been adopted by police and fire academies (including the Orange County Sheriff’s), law enforcement tactical operations teams, military Special Forces units, champion mixed martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.

I'M NOT AN ATHLETE, CAN I STILL DO CROSSFIT?
The amazing thing about CrossFit is that this training program can be utilized by everyone; from professional athletes to soccer moms and senior citizens. You do not have to be in good shape to start. Crossfit is completely scalable. Meaning that we can scale the workout to meet your current abilities. Then as you get in better shape the program will adjust to keep you constantly challenged. In fact, we could have a senior citizen and a professional athlete perform the same workout in our classes. The load (weight), movement and reps scheme may be slightly adjusted, but both can participate in the same workout in the same class environment.
WHAT DOES A WORKOUT AT EAGLEWING LOOK LIKE?
We start by warming up together using large bands, foam rollers, and other techniques to specifically target the areas that will be used in the daily workout. Many of our members start CrossFit with serious flexibility issues, but over time become much more flexible, thus preventing injury.
Now that you are warmed up and properly stretched, our coaches will review, drill, and teach the movements that are being used in our daily WOD (work out of the day). Coaches will insure that you are able to perform the movements with proper form and range of motion. This is also where they will determine if you will require scaling (lowering of weight or modification of the exercise movement).
After this we will start the WOD. The coach will yell out, “3, 2, 1, GO!” and the WOD is underway. During the WOD, our coaches will monitor your performance and give you verbal cues and take corrective action when necessary if we see your form or range of motion not meeting the standard.
We always end with a good stretch!
