The variety of programming is what sets CrossFit Logan apart from other gyms. Our large and spacious facilities have two completely separate spaces, allowing us to run multiple classes at once. We have nine different class offerings that include elements of HIIT, Kettlebell, Sports Performance, Circuit and interval training, TRX, Metabolic Conditioning, Gymnastics, Olympic Lifting, and CrossFit. No matter your fitness level or experience, we have programming to fit your needs. Likewise, regardless of your time restrictions, we have a membership package that will work for you.
This offering requires a fundamental understanding of most resistance movements and is targeted towards advanced athletes. Designed for the athlete that hates traditional cardio, LIFT will get your blood flowing through circuits of heavy lifting. Muscle fatigue and improved technique are a couple of the things you can expect to get from this class.
Short but intense, 30 minute class. The goal of this class is to get the lungs burning and the heart racing. Your coach will utilize various formats and speed movements to leaving you lying in a pool of sweat in short order. This class will focus on speed, agility, and quickness.
CrossFit is defined as constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. The class will start with a warm-up designed by the coach, to prep your joints and muscles for the workout. The middle portion of the class is spent working on a specific lift or skill. The final portion of the class is the burner- a short but very intense workout utilizing CrossFit formats, such as- EMOM, AMRAP, Chippers, and Rounds For Time.
CircuitFit is a HIIT (high-intensity interval training) class that takes place in our Atlas Performance space. During a CircuitFit class, you will alternate between short bursts of intense anaerobic exercise and less-intense active recovery or even rest. HIIT training has been proven to improve athletic performance, endurance, as well as improve the rate at which you metabolize glucose. During a CircuitFit class, you can expect to be working for 35-40 minutes, alternating between resistance movements- using bodyweight, dumbbells, kettlebells- and cardio movements- Running, rowing, and cycling.
Each MetCon class is made up of 3 separate short but intense workout (10-15 min). MetCon, which is short for “Metabolic Conditioning,” gets its name from the high-intensity portion at the end of every CrossFit WOD. This class is modeled after CrossFit, but because you will complete 3 MetCons instead of the 1 done in a CrossFit class, it is more demanding aerobically, as you will experience up to 40 mins of high intensity work. While we use CrossFit formats, we do not use the barbell, instead we use dumbbells, kettlebells and bodyweight exercises. MetCon is less technical than Crossfit but more challenging from an endurance perspective, making it the perfect alternative and/or compliment to CrossFit training. MetCon is a great class for anyone looking to build strength and endurance, especially if you enjoy CrossFit programming and it’s intensity but want to avoid the heavier loads sometimes used in a CrossFit class.
The Atlas Olympic Weightlifting program is comprised of a weeklong lifting program that athletes complete on their own time. On Saturdays, these athletes meet for a class dedicated to improving their Olympic Weightlifting technique, while completing their week of programming. Olympic Weightlifting is comprised of two dynamic lifts: the snatch and the clean and jerk. These Olympic lifts test aspects of human ballistic limits (explosive strength); the lifts are therefore executed faster—and with more mobility and a greater range of motion during their execution—than other strength movements. Properly executed, the snatch and the clean and jerk are both dynamic and explosive while appearing graceful. Improving your Olympic Weightlifting ability is extremely beneficial to one’s CrossFit performance, as improving efficiency and eliminating wasted movement can help conserve energy.
