At CrossFit NCS, we are a community-based health and fitness center that follows the CrossFit methodology. This means a goal centered approach to improving your fitness level, whether you’re just staring out or are a more advanced athlete.
CrossFit is not a typical day at the gym. Each day brings a new workout, with varying movements based on gymnastics, metabolic conditioning, and weightlifting. Our goal is to help improve your health in 10 physical skills: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.
Here’s the thing about CrossFit: it’s infinitely scalable, so our workouts meet you wherever you are on your fitness journey. You don’t have to “get in shape” to do CrossFit – that’s what CrossFit does!
We follow a traditional CrossFit programming regimine, which means General Physical Preparedness (GPP). We will have a strength component, a metcon (metabolic conditioning), and have the option for additional training for athletes looking to go further each day.
We have athletes all along the competitive spectrum, from beginner to elite. The key is that we’re a supportive community consisting of athletes all looking to improve and progress on their fitness journeys.
CrossFit Kids is a strength and conditioning program that is specifically designed for kids and teenagers to help them to develop a lifelong love of fitness by pairing fitness with fun.
CrossFit Kids combines aspects from gymnastics; weight lifting; body-weight training, such as squats and pull-ups; and endurance training, such as running, jumping and climbing ropes. Class activities are adapted for the ages and skills of smaller participants. The class is taught by certified coaches who have a passion for working with kids.
As part of CrossFit NCS, we regularly work with barbells, performing powerlifting and Olympic lifting (sometimes called OLY).
Our highly qualified coaches create custom programming to not only instruct our athletes in the proper and safe techniques of these movements, but also to help improve performance through drills, programming and one-on-one instruction.
Our coaches are USAW certified and have competed competitively both statewide and regionally.
NCS Strength classes are held three times each week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sunday mornings.
Adaptive and Inclusive Athletes
Crossfit NCS offers a safe, effective and inclusive environment for Adaptive athletes to train in. An ATA trainer is on staff with the skills to help you develop strength for activities for daily living (ADLs and IADLs), reduce limitations and increase functionality while also heeding the advice of your medical professionals. Adaptive athletes are a part of our community and our goal is to have all levels and abilities of athletes working together in this community, encouraging everyone to person to their strongest and highest levels.
Pull-ups and pull-up variations, bar and ring muscle-ups, handstand walks and handstand push-ups, double-unders…these are all body-weight and gymnastic-based movements that many of us could use some intensive instruction and programming to improve.
At CrossFit NCS, we offer a weekly NCS Accessory class where our coaches provide more intensive coaching and programming to help improve – or even master tthese movements.
Beginner or competitive athlete, improving these skills can help move you to the next level of your fitness journey.
