Aerobic Capacity Workouts
One major flaw in almost all CrossFit programming is the lack of an aerobic component. CrossFit is designed around high intensity exercise, so lower intensity work is often neglected. We rarely go "long" in our workouts because it is difficult to maintain intensity. Aerobic capacity work is a great way to build an engine as well as a great "active" recovery piece. We program 1 or 2 workouts a week that you can do any day either in addition to your class workout or in place of your workout. I would strongly recommend trying to add in one of these workouts into your week. These types of workouts are also great for people looking to lose a few pounds when combined with high intensity training like CrossFit Most of these workouts will be 30-60 minutes in duration and usually will have a prescribed intensity based on heart rate. Do not go over the HR! Normally you keep your heart rate at or below 150 beats per minute or so. You can either buy a HR monitor or simply work at a "conversation" pace.
Olympic weightlifting is a big part of CrossFit and is very technical. These movements include the snatch and clean and jerk. These movements can take a lifetime to master and we want to help you get there. We offer our weightlifting class two times a week and focus on technique and quality of movement. Olympic weightlifting is also a sport in and of itself. We have many nationally ranked lifters and our lifters hold a few state records. This class is included with our unlimited membership. You may also choose to participate ONLY in the oly class for a discounted rate, please call or speak with a trainer for details.

Our mission with CFUV Kids is simple: to help shape your child’s lifelong definition of health and fitness by pairing working-out and fun so that they will build habits to last a lifetime. While fun and games are important, helping your child to move better is our goal. We will introduce them to proper technique in weightlifting as well as everyday functional movements. CrossFit UV Kids will develop your child’s ten general physical skills: Cardio-respiratory endurance, Power, Strength, Stamina, Speed, Agility, Flexibility, Balance, Accuracy, and Coordination. We combine parts of gymnastics, bodyweight movements, running and weightlifting. Gymnastics will aid your child’s development by involving the vestibular system. Weightlifting will aid bone density development and take advantage of the window of opportunity for peak development in both children and teens. At the same time we will be increasing their strength and self confidence. Nutrition will be discussed and good food choices encouraged, but parental support in this area is KEY!
