What to Expect?
Workouts can be adjusted in weight, intensity, and certain mechanics in order to scale to the experience and fitness levels of any individual, be it a total fitness beginner or elite competitive CrossFitter. This is the reason this program gets acclaim from military personnel, professional athletes, soccer Moms, Dads and grandparents alike.
All of our CrossFit Classes are coach-led and follow a planned progression roughly 60 minutes in duration and follow this basic structure:
A certified coach will guide you through warming up, followed by movement instruction and demonstration for the workout. The Coach will supervise and correct any movement performed by you during the workout.
Do I have to be fit to CrossFit?
No. CrossFit is the program that will get you in shape. No matter what your current fitness level is, you can start CrossFit. As you become fitter, workouts will become more challenging. Every workout is designed to help you succeed, improve fitness and move you toward your goals.
CrossFit is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience.
What kind of movements/exercises can I expect?
CrossFit class programming will include a strength portion in which you’ll work on something like Olympic weightlifting, deadlifting, squatting or bodyweight strength or you may work on a skill like handstand push-ups. After the strength or skill portion of the class is complete, most days will involve a WOD (Workout Of The Day). WODS can be anywhere between 5 to 20 minutes or more.
Is CrossFit for me?
Yes. Everyone can do CrossFit regardless of age, injuries and current fitness levels. The program is modified for each person to help him or her safely become healthier and fitter. Grandparents and Olympians can perform modified versions of the same general workout.
What kind of results can I expect?
Be patient. Results take time but if you’re consistent, they absolutely will come. The exciting thing as a beginner is that results come fairly quickly, even in 30 days you can really see a difference in your strength and overall fitness.
Do I have to stop eating donuts?
Do enjoy special indulgences and meals. It’s a lifestyle, but it has to be manageable and realistic for the long-term. Luckily, the healthier you eat, the healthier you tend to want to eat. You get hooked on feeling good and junk food just isn’t worth it.
By avoiding excessive amounts of refined carbohydrates and measuring your intake of protein, carbohydrates and fat, you will see dramatic, measurable increases in health.
Can I get hurt doing CrossFit?
CrossFit uses safe, effective and efficient movements similar to those you use every day in life.
How often should I come?
2-4 classes a week is a realistic for beginners, depending on your level of fitness when you start. It may take a while for your body to get used to training at that intensity, so at the beginning you might need more recovery time between training days. Over the first few months, start working your way up to training 5 days a week.
Real People. Real Results
"My favorite thing about Clark Street CrossFit is the people - in all aspects. From the personable and caring owner to coaches and staff who go the extra mile to push each individual in a personalized way, and the members who love to see one another succeed, this box makes for a motivational environment without intimidation. A place filled with good people who enjoy working hard and living a healthy lifestyle."
"The members and Coach Greg were so welcoming and encouraging and treated me like I was a long-time member. The space is terrific and Greg did a fabulous job of explaining the movements and the nuances of what we were trying to focus on for each one. Any time I'm back in Chicago I'll be going back to Clark Street CrossFit!"
"The workouts are great - challenging yet able to be scaled for all fitness/ability/injury levels. Very friendly and welcoming owner and coaches. I honestly spend way too much time here which probably says something - this is one of my favorite places. If you have never worked out in a group format, don't be scared - it's the best way to stay motivated, and it is such a supportive environment."
