We offer the following programs here at CrossFit A.C.T.
Workout Of the Day: Constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movements as programmed by Coach Bill. The workouts are designed to be safe and effective for everyone. Whether you are trying to lose weight, get in better shape, gain strength or are a seasoned athlete, we will provide the coaching needed to meet your goal. Our programming is designed for three cycles; we will have a certain focus during that three month time period in order to meet a specific goal.
The Olympic Lifting class hones in on the snatch and clean and jerk skills. By working in a group setting, athletes learn not only in-depth pointers, but also accessory work that will enhance these two lifts. This class meets during certain cycles of programming.
On Ramp is our introduction to CrossFit. On Ramp is a five session course that can be completed in one week or over the course of two weeks. On Ramp is held as a one-on-one personal training session; we assign each member to a coach, and then both the member and the coach work together to decide on the days/times that will be optimal to complete the On Ramp course. During the two week course, we cover the essential movements of the CrossFit methodology. All On Ramp sessions are one hour long and include instruction plus a workout. All members are required to complete this course.
Open Gym is just as it sounds. Use this time to gain access to the gym to make up WODs and work on skills. There is always a coach present at open gym for assistance in movements. Open Gym is held on Sundays from 9am-12pm.
Yoga class meets on Sunday’s every few weeks. Our Yoga coach gets into the nitty-gritty of yoga, focusing on how to properly mobilize and stretch both pre and post workout. This class also focuses on pairing stretches and mobility to optimize your WOD performance.
A one-on-one consultation with head coach Bill Shockley, this is a personal program designed to fit an athlete’s specific training goals. Consultations can cover a wide variety of topics including, CrossFit Games training, competition-ready training, sport specific training, strength, endurance, gymnastics, weight loss, mass gain and much more. To set up a consultation, please email Bill Shockley at email@example.com.
We do carry supplements at our ACT shop. However, supplements are exactly as they sound - a supplement to training. We only carry the essentials for recovery: protein, bcaa and joint support. Don’t hesitate to ask any of the coaches for some guidance and knowledge on supplements or nutrition.
