The CrossFit Aggregate Approach
Aggregate as defined is a sum formed by combining several elements (some that are seemingly unrelated). Our fitness philosophy is based on this aggregate approach. We combine elements from experts in their respective fields to make accomplishing your fitness goals easier and more fulfilling. By forming a community you become more committed to your goal. By meditating you strengthen your mind and resiliency. By having a nutritional plan you recover quicker and have more energy. By having strength and flexibility you are injured less and release positive endorphins. Finally, by having a constantly changing workout you are never bored and always challenged.
CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. There are 9 foundational movements in CrossFit. They break down to 3 movements at 3 levels of complexity. Squat to Front Squat to Overhead Squat. Press to Push Press to Push Jerk. Deadlift to Sumo Deadlift High Pull to Medicine Ball Cleans. We will do a lot more than these 9 movements, but if you master these life will become easier and easier.
“Research demonstrates that resistance exercise training has profound effects on the musculoskeletal system, contributes to the maintenance of functional abilities, and prevents osteoporosis, sarcopenia (loss of body mass), lower-back pain and other disabilities.
More recent seminal research demonstrates that resistance training may positively affect risk factors such as insulin resistance, resting metabolic rate, glucose metabolism, blood pressure, body fat and gastrointestinal transit time, which are associated with diabetes, heart disease and cancer.”
With that in mind, we will offer strength programs based on scientifically proven methods from experts in the industry.

Kick boxing is a high energy workout with kicks, knees, punches, and because we are CrossFit, some CrossFit elements. It is a great way to change-up your workout and try something new and relieve a whole lot of stress. It is more of a pure cardio approach than CrossFit. Our owner actually got started with “CrossFight” in Austin, TX before transitioning to CrossFit.
CrossFit HQ recommends to “eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar”. This is a general rule but CrossFit believes with minor fine tuning that performance can be optimized.
Finely tuned, a good diet will increase energy, sense of well-being, and acumen, while simultaneously improving body composition. CrossFit believes that the closest model for optimal nutrition is that of Barry Sears’s Zone Diet.
We agree and will help design your meal plans to make success inevitable.
