BACK TO BASICS
The CrossFit methods are proven and highly effective. At CrossFit Clarksville (as with many other quality boxes around the world) we focus on the 9 fundamental movements that have been proven time and again to be the most effective at eliciting a favorable response from the body. Muscle-ups and butterfly pull-ups are cool, but they aren’t necessarily important for the 50 year old mother of 3 wanting to look and feel better. Sitting on the toilet, on the other hand, is absolutely necessary. As such, squatting should be a hallmark of any good fitness regimen. Coach Glassman (the founder of CrossFit) talks about virtuosity being an important aspect of any good CF program. Virtuosity means to perform the common uncommonly well. Find a gym promoting and teaching virtuosity, and you have found a great CrossFit gym with a good understanding of the methods that have helped so many look and feel better than they ever thought possible!
A great CF gym is more than just a place to get fit. It has a friendly community that feels like home to ANYONE the minute they walk through the door. Regardless of upbringing, financial and social status, or high school label, when you walk through the door at CrossFit Clarksville you are welcomed with open arms. There is an obvious culture of loyalty and commitment which begins with the leadership and infects the membership! Find yourself a gym with long-standing coaches and little to no attrition, and you’ve likely found yourself a great CrossFit home!
If it isn’t fun, you won’t come back. CrossFit is hard. For some of you it will be the hardest physical endeavor of your life. At CrossFit Clarksville we allow everyone a FREE TRIAL session (or two). We do this because, as I tell all potential new members, “If you don’t like the vibe or the people standing next to you, you won’t stick with it.” A great CF gym will provide you a community of members to help you overcome challenges and a team of qualified coaches to motivate and inspire no matter where you may be on your fitness journey. Everyday at CrossFit Clarksville is an exercise in fun. We work hard and we play hard. It has proven to be a recipe for GREAT success!
