CrossFit: (The basic definition) ‘Constantly varied, functional movements that are executed at high intensity.’
This is CrossFit at Down Home defined by our Head Programmer and Owner Jake: If you’re unfamiliar with what CrossFit is, Down Home defines it as follows. A training methodology that focuses on well-crafted workouts that challenge you physically, mentally, and even emotionally. If we can progressively increase your capacity to do work, your efficiency to move better, and your overall functionality we have done half of our job. The other half – getting you to occasionally step outside of your comfort zone, build confidence, and embolden you to reach new heights. This is often what surprises members the most!
We are more than just a fitness facility. We are a community of like-minded individuals striving to better ourselves day in and day out. Just like a family, we come in all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, and ability levels. No one here goes it alone. If you’re looking for a quick-fix, fitness-in-a-pill type of experience, this isn’t it. However, if you’re looking to challenge yourself amongst your peers in a comfortable and judgement free zone we’ve got you covered.
Most of our members will tell you they train with us to “look better”, “perform better”, and to “feel better”. They will tell you they stay with us because it has become their “Home” away from home. But don’t take our word for it. Check out our testimonials page to see what everyone is raving about. Also check out the short video below to see CrossFit in action.
Here at DHCF we break our CrossFit Program into two ‘Tracks’ that are more defined by your goals.
Simple, it’s not random training pulled out of a hat being done by a horde of fitness “freaks” with 8 pack abs and muscles on top of muscles, who all look the same (but hopefully we can build a few 6 packs!).
It’s not walking into a gym for the first time and having no one talk to you. The changes of someone extending their hand and saying “Welcome Home.” is high.
It’s not a place full of cliques or drama. It’s not a concrete floor, with gravity on the wall, and chains on the bar. In fact we have showers, free coffee, and a place for your kids to hang out.
It’s not an excluded place for only the ones who want to compete or who are already fit. It’s a place for anyone. Our differences in all aspects make this place strong and above all understanding and loving.
Down Home is different, and we would love for you to experience the difference today!
