BRCF is different. And that's ok.
CrossFit is about improving quality of life, not just getting through a tough workout. CrossFit is inclusive; anyone can do it, and everyone can benefit from it. Greg Glassman (CrossFit’s founder) believes the needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not by kind. If you fall down, you need to be able to get up. If you drop something, you need to be able to pick it up. These are foundational movements. You need to be able to squat, deadlift, push and pull.
The magic is in the movements. During a CrossFit class, you can expect to see constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity. This can include strength, gymnastics, and metabolic conditioning. All are important and programmed to promote GPP (General Physical Preparedness). At BRCF, we want our members to have the ability to do anything thrown at them. We want them to be prepared for the unknown. CrossFit does this by using safe, effective and efficient movements similar to those we use every day in life.
BRCF is different. And we're ok with that. It’s no secret – CrossFit is here to stay and is not a fitness fad. There are so many boxes (CrossFit gyms) to choose from. We’d love the opportunity to show you why we’re different from the others! We have a great location, skilled coaches and top of the line equipment but what really makes us different is the people.
Here at Bark River CrossFit, we have a wide variety of members and coaches who create a dynamic community. The community aspect is something unique to CrossFit and is evident during a class when people who come from all different walks of life are cheering each other on and high fiving. People become invested in people. We have athletes of all levels, some who are just starting this health journey and others who have been actively training for years. At BRCF we help people with various goals from weight loss to disease prevention to overall happiness and wellness. We also help athletes who want to compete and take their performance to the next level.
