All of the classes here at CrossFit Agema run for one hour in duration and based on the CrossFit modality which is:
Constantly Varied: We never repeat the same workout two days in a row. Routine is the enemy.
Functional Movements: We use exercises that are safe, natural and applicable to everyday living.
High Intensity: While intensity is relative to the individual; it is the independent variable most closely associated with adaptation. Positive change in your fitness won’t happen reading a magazine on a treadmill!
At CrossFit Agema we run a "Work Out of the Day" (WOD) every day, this means that regardless of what class you attend you will complete the same workout as everyone else for the day. We use Wodify as a CrossFit digital whiteboard system that registers athletes for class, records WOD results and remembers past performance. A better way to track results, Wodify transforms our whiteboard from a destination to a true data experience. Check out our WOD - click on the link above.
If you want to lose weight, gain muscle or just improve your general health and fitness our expert coaching staff can get you there. Each of our classes is led by a certified CrossFit Coach. Many of our larger classes have two coaches present to ensure you receive the attention you need in the workouts.
Need additional help outside of class? No problem! Just pull a coach aside and ask away. We are here for you and we care about your goals.
1. Be On Time: CrossFit incorporates a lot of technical movements, so it’s important that you’re on time to participate in the warm-up movements to ensure your body is ready for the specific Workout of the Day. You’re always welcome to arrive 15-20mins early and do your own preparation or work on a specific “homework” program we’ve given you, however this is not mandatory.
2. Let Coaches Coach: We love our team environment and community atmosphere where member’s look out for each other. While support is great, giving technical advice and coaching is not. We have experienced coaches who know what they are talking about and it’s their job to inform, instruct and coach technique.
3. Leave Your Ego at the Door: Many people enter the gym with predisposed ideas of what weights they should be lifting or try to match somebody else. Our aim is to ensure you’re perfecting the movement first, and then increase the intensity. We ask all members to respect our judgment – we are not trying to hold you back, we just want you to progress in the most safe and efficient way.
4. Support Other Members: The best sessions are when everyone supports one another. It’s amazing how well people respond when another member is encouraging them when they need it most. We train as individuals but workout as a team. Pack up ONLY AFTER EVERYONE HAS FINISHED!
5. If You Don’t Know, Ask: This is especially important for any new members. If there is something you are unsure about, then please ask, no matter how silly you think the question is. We would much rather you ask, so we can address any issues and not risk any injury.
6. Have Fun: We are not in the Army and we are not a “Boot Camp”. While we do take our training seriously, we want everyone to have some fun in the process. We enjoy a laugh as much as you, and we encourage a bit of banter, especially during warm-up and cool-down periods.
7. Don’t Put Down, Put Away: Our members view CrossFit Agema as their own gym, and treat it as such. That means putting any equipment back after use, wiping down their sweat and cleaning their chalk marks.
8. Injuries: Everyone gets a little niggle at some point, so if you do have an injury we want to know about it, however minor it may seem. That way we can help design a specific rehab program, or refer you to the relevant health professional. It also allows us to adjust your session so that we’re not putting additional strain on your injury.
9. Respect Our Equipment: Never drop, throw or slam empty bars, kettlebells, dumbbells, or medicine balls to the ground. The only thing that can be dropped, or slammed is bumper plates.... or bad habits....
10. Respect Other Members: It is ok to express yourself during a hard workout. Feel free to grunt, yell, swear, and celebrate. At the same time remember that there can be such a thing as too loud, angry, gross, or rude.
11. Be Responsible For Your Own Fitness: Scaling back a workout when necessary is intelligent, not weak. You can not get fitter by staring at a bar that is too heavy.
