To enrich the lives of others by offering the absolute best Fitness Training, Nutritional advice and Community (Family).
To provide a community that is healthy, strong and vital, whose participants have the courage to live outside the generally accepted term of “fitness” and create a stout belief system in themselves that health, fitness and vitality do not have to decline with age.
Our goal is to educate, instruct and train CFP members to exceed their physical and mental capacities. Whether your goal is to lose body-fat, build muscle, or perform better at your particular sport, CrossFit has proven through simple science to attain all those goals.
We are not a quick fitness program. We don’t waste your time or ours with fitness myths. We will tell it to you straight and push you to train hard and EAT RIGHT! Your results will speak for themselves and YOU will prove it. Nutrition is an important component of health and fitness. In the hierarchy of overall wellness, nutrition is the foundation. We provide you with nutritional information and offer personal nutrition guidance where we tell you what, how and when to eat depending on your goals.
At CrossFit Panoply we pride ourselves in teaching the correct form and technique for all movements as well as putting a great emphasis on Olympic lifting movements such as the Clean and Jerk and the Snatch. In order to do this, we require that all new members participate in three introductory/foundation classes. In these classes you will not only learn the nine fundamental movements of CrossFit, but you will learn them correctly.
Different movements will be taught in each class along with a review of already taught movements. At the end of the class a short workout will be performed that encompasses both the newly learned movements as well as movements that have already been previously taught. We do this to ensure that each new member gets a feel for how each correct movement feels and how they are incorporated in daily workouts. If at any time a member feels that they are not yet comfortable to participate in the regularly scheduled workouts, they are more than welcome to participate in more introductory/foundation classes until they feel that they are comfortable.
CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness. The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. We have sought to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency — not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, we asked what physical skills and adaptations would most universally lend themselves to performance advantage. Capacity culled from the intersection of all sports demands would quite logically lend itself well to all sport. In sum, our specialty is not specializing.
CrossFit is many things. Primarily, it’s a fitness regimen developed by Coach Greg Glassman over several decades. He was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way (increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains). CrossFit itself is defined as that which optimizes fitness (constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity). CrossFit is also the community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together. In fact, the communal aspect of CrossFit is a key component of why it’s so effective.
