How is it different to CrossFit? CrossLITE is still a community-based, high energy, circuit-style conditioning workout without the use of barbells or high skill gymnastics movements. This program is more challenging than your average boot camp, but less intense than CrossFit. The primary focus is on conditioning. A CrossLITE workout has the same principles as a regular CrossFit class (Constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement) except we will focus mainly on Metabolic Conditioning (MetCon) with scaled down weights or body weight movements.

Many people want to experience the fun of CrossFit, but may have reservations about using the barbells. This is understandable since the idea of lifting very heavy weight or performing complex weight lifting movements can be unsettling to some.

CrossLITE is designed to maximize your fitness by using a variety of different body weight movements and objects like kettlebells or dumbbells to build strength and cardiovascular health. Each class is different and can include activities like running, body weight movements, or using kettlebells, dumbbells, jump ropes, wall balls, or boxes. While we call this CrossLITE, don’t be confused that this is easier than a typical CrossFit workout! The “LITE” will exclude our more challenging CrossFit movements, so you won’t be doing handstand pushups, muscle ups, rope climbs, Olympic lifts or the like. You will be doing the basic cardio and bodyweight movements like pushups, air squats, sit-ups, running, jump rope, etc.
