Crux Fitness Program Mission
Our mission for the Crux Fitness program is to use a variety of systems and techniques to create better human movement, minimize injury, and improve both physical and psychological confidence.
Our bodies are born with the genetic belief that we will be running, squatting, climbing, and digging; however, our lives tend to lack those movements due to being stuck in chairs, desks, cars, and repetitive movements. We then go to a gym for an hour to mimic what our body should be doing during our waking hours. This programming is specifically designed to maximize that gym time and get humans moving better with regards to what our bodies were actually designed to do.
Crux offers a variety of drop-in fitness classes that cater to every body, experience level, and athletic need.
If you are looking for more personalized training for specific goals or specific athletic needs, please email our Fitness Manager, Matt Borer, and he will happily connect you to the trainer that best fits your goals!
Check out our fitness class types below:
An essential and defining element of the overall Crux fitness programming. Focussing on improving range of motion (ROM) and then building strength in that newly acquired ROM. A fantastic class in which to learn self assessment tools, everyday mobility self care, and to positively effect every movement you make every day for the rest of your life. No big deal. Climbers, you should be in here. All levels recommended.
10-15m warm up of mobility, dynamic stretching, and cardio. 45 minutes of movement using various styles of Circuit Training in an effort to engage the body and mind, improve agility, balance, strength and endurance, maintain an elevated heart rate, and generally bomb-proof the body. You will be carefully instructed in the use of dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, battle ropes, and steps/boxes amongst other functional training tools. All levels welcome!
This class will begin with some mobility and body weight movement work to warm you up and prep you for the movements that will follow. Then, using a steel mace, you will meticulously learn one basic movement at a time and then begin to piece them together to create a more complex flow. Embrace your inner warrior and become a movement artist! All levels. For more information check out www.steelmaceflow.com
Just what it sounds like, a short format class designed to focus on two highly requested areas of the body. Drop in and strengthen the core, the back, and the back end to improve power, posture, injury prevention AND frankly to look good coming and going. Just keeping it real. All levels.
This class is a weekly program that will have days of varying focus, with a foundation in strength, cardio, and muscular endurance. Each class will end with a core element for stability, endurance, and conditioning. A great class for those looking to focus on foundational/traditional barbell, dumbbell, and kettlebell movements. Ground Control to Major Gainz! All levels.
Need more climbing specific training? Hop into one of these laid back classes and level up your training upstairs using hang boards, pull up bars, campus boards, Moon board, and various other tools. It’s a fun and challenging class where you can connect with other climbers of various levels, learn how to train more specifically and intentionally, or just add to the training that you are already killing!
Lift all the things and become a better mover. This class features Barbells, Kettlebells, and Animal Flow. Come enjoy a challenging workout that will cover the basics of these tools as you appropriately increase intensity and complexity. This will also include elements of high intensity interval training (HIIT) and body weight/kettlebell flow patterns. All levels!
looking for a space to start responsibly playing playing with the heavier kettlebells? This class will be specifically emphasizing traditional KB strength movements interspersed with calisthenics. We are talking strength building, muscular endurance, technique, and movement. Drop in for the knowledge and sat for the gainsz!
