CrossFit Annex started with a group that set up various exercise stations in front of one of our founding member's garage. It was really fun. It still is. But now we've grown to be one of the premiere CrossFit boxes in the area and have added a variety of programming to suit everyone. Most importantly, we've become a tight-knit group that is always supportive.
Workout of the Day (WOD)
By CrossFit’s definition, the goal of the WOD is to perform “constantly varied, functional movement, performed at high intensity” in order to develop fitness in the following physical attributes: Cardiovascular and Respiratory endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy. These classes take advantage of the use of various barbell and weight lifting movements, bodyweight and gymnastics movements, metabolic conditioning and circuit training, as well as other cardiovascular modalities like running and rowing.
CrossFit Annex owner Mickey Brueckner teaches Olympic lifting and other CrossFit skills. This class provides those individuals who want to focus more on developing strength and proficiency in their power and olympic lifts an opportunity to do so. The main focus is on the deadlift, squat, press, clean and jerk, and snatch.
Designed for those who are looking to develop long duration condition and cardiovascular strength while still utilizing typical CrossFit methodology. Unlike the WOD, this class will focus less on the elements and strength but more on the development of cardiovascular endurance and conditioning. Perfect for those who are training for a road race of any distance.
Our early movement patterns are generally characterized by near perfect mechanics because the “best”way to perform functional movements also tend to be the most efficient or easiest way. In our CrossFit Kids programs, we focus on functional movements in an effort to preserve these initial “perfect”movement patterns and decrease the need to relearn them later in life.
CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. We offer classes based on age groups: 3-6, 6-12 & 13-18. Classes take place on Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Click here for our schedule.
