At Heretic CrossFit, we’re not your ordinary CrossFit gym. For starters, we’re the only DOCTOR-LED CrossFit box in the area so we do things a bit different. When you come in to see us you will meet your coach and discuss why you want to get fit and where we fit into the picture. We want to know about you, your life, and what we can do to hold you accountable and how we can develop a plan of action to ensure you get fit for good this time!
From the programming to the community, we embrace the Heretic lifestyle of not accepting the beliefs of an accepted standard. Mechanics first, then consistency, then intensity is our creed and we make it a focus of our coaching to make our athletes move well first. From there, we build consistency by keeping our athletes accountable and helping them stick to their goals. After that comes the intensity within our athletes limits. Once all these three have been achieved will we then start pushing the limits of each athlete to make them the best they can be.
We train hard and play harder and help people reach a level of fitness they never thought possible. Everyday our athletes are breaking barriers and setting new standards for themselves. Training this way creates a bond, especially when you’re sweating next to people pushing just as hard as you. Together we push each other to move better than yesterday, to be stronger than yesterday and to be better than yesterday. Egos are left at the door (that’s rule #1) and everyone encourages you to do your best for today. Our community is our strength and at Heretic CrossFit our community is strong.
We feel a good place to start in telling you what we do is by first telling you what we DON’T do. Sorry to say this but at Heretic CrossFit you won’t find mirrors to look at yourself. We don’t have fancy treadmills, stairclimbers, or elliptical machines either. Non-existent are stations for your chest, biceps, triceps, quads and hamstrings. You won’t see those ab-crunch machines or inner/outer thigh developers either. You’ll never hear someone ask you “How much ya bench” and we won’t hand you pizza or a bagel after you’ve worked hard to burn those calories (what kind of real fitness club does that anyway?).
At Heretic CrossFit, our box is filled with pull-up bars, kettlebells, barbells, rowers and a wide open area for squatting, jumping, running, lifting, and throwing the way we were meant to move.
All of our workouts are made up of exercises that mirror everyday life and sport. We focus on strengthening our bodies to make picking up our kids/grandkids, doing yard work or housework, or playing your favorite sport that much easier.
