This program is how we get every new member ready for class.
Our elements program is a one month commitment. During that month you will receive:
1. 4 private sessions with a trainer
-full-coached one hour sessions to teach you all the movements you need for class
-warm-ups will be done with the class so you can meet a couple of coaches and fellow members
-modifications and movement assessments
2. Your coach will buddy with you for your first class
3. Unlimited classes with the time remaining in your month (on average 2+ weeks to try it out)
This month is an excellent way to feel out whether this is for you.
We know that making a change can be hard, especially if you have not been active for a while. This program is two sessions per week, Sunday’s and Thursday’s. Sundays will be a workout and nutrition-focused info session. Thursday will focus on moving/working out.
Over the 6 weeks you will learn:
-how to train in a way to maximize your time in the gym
-start to lose body fat and get closer to your goal
-learn about what to eat to shed weight and decrease your A1C (blood sugar levels)
-learn new healthy habits to replace the ones that are no longer serving you
-how to avoid medication and take your health back
Based on the CrossFit prescription of “constantly varied functional movement executed at high intensity,” our CrossFit program combines strength training with the “classic” CrossFit cardio workout. For this class, you could be working on pull-ups, rowing, burpees and much more. Every workout of the day (WOD) is different so you never get bored! We scale each workout to your fitness level, so you get the maximum workout every time.
Who says adults get to have all the fun? CrossFit Kids teaches children ages 3-16 the principles of mechanics, consistency and intensity in working out. Establishing good movements and fitness through childhood and adolescence is our goal. CrossFit Kids provides children with physical literacy, enhanced sports performance, and fewer sports injuries. Also, scientific research proves that exercise benefits cognitive function. So your little athlete will do better on the field and the classroom.
Nutrition (and sleep) is at the foundation of everything we do. We work with all of our athletes to help them find strategies that they need to improve these areas. We do this as part of your membership. It is important to us that we not only help you move better each day but that we teach you how to be better outside of our four walls. At CrossFit Barrie you will learn about all five factors of health: sleep, nutrition, training, mindset, and relationships. We know you are not just walking bodies when you come in here, we all have other stuff going on, we want to help you with those things too. You know, those pesky things that comes with adulting. 😉
Twice a year we will help you ramp up and reset your body through out nutrition challenges. For us, nutrition is all about find something you can stick with. Success does not come from doing something 100% for 30 days, success comes from finding small wins you can do over and over again. That’s why we focus on helping you find new habits or strategies that will change your relationship with food, how you look at fuelling your body, and allowing you to get off the diet roller coaster.
Here is what one of our members said about our last 4-week challenge:
I lost 1.5 inches off of my chest (god bless it wasn’t more), 5 inches off of my waist, 4 inches off of my hips and ELEVEN POUNDS!!
I am so so happy with the results from this challenge. I failed often, which the crazy part. Rarely did I have perfect days, but that’s the best part. I tried to make it as sustainable as possible. If I wanted a scoop of peanut butter, I had a scoop of peanut butter, took off the point and moved on with my life. I find every time I try to lose weight by way of eating, I restrict myself to the point of insanity.
This was so different than anything I have every done. Before this challenge, my eating…. was terrible. I used my efforts in the gym as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted. I almost let other people around me dictate what I was eating. I’d get the, “You can afford to eat this and that, you will burn it off tomorrow anyways.” But this way of eating, was not getting me to my goals.
Perhaps my biggest actual take away is, you can’t outwork a crappy diet. These are the results I have been looking for.
I am very grateful for this challenge.
If you need more accountability, we have personalized plans too. With the Eat Your Way team, we will create a personalized program that has your specific goals in mind. If you are interested in signing up, the first step in the program will be the completion of a questionnaire. This will allow us to understand your goals and lifestyle. We will then develop an individualized program for you. This plan will give you the rules of the program, the dos and don’ts, and will hopefully answer all of the questions you have about macro counting. In your personal program, you will be assigned a specific number of macros each week. This will vary depending on your activity level. How you fill your macros is up to you, however, we do encourage you to find foods that fill you up, and satisfy your cravings! With this program you get: Personal goal analysis, 3 months of individualized programming. Weekly check-ins, Dietary control, 24/7 coach support.
