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.
Founded in 2007, CrossFit Truckee has seen many transformations, but always stayed true to its vision for family friendly, professional training, for any athlete at any level. Keeping inline with the latest training methodologies, and techniques, our most recent transition (February 15th 2016) to our new 4,300sf facility in beautiful Martis Valley near the Truckee Airport, is no exception. With two dedicated training spaces, kids/family play area, numerous upgrades and new equipment our team of trainers are fully prepared to help you complete all of your personal, sport, and fitness goals.
As an active part of our local community, we strive to ensure positive impact in the near and distant future of the Truckee Tahoe area and fitness community as a whole. Join us in our commitment!
