CROSSFIT

CrossFit is defined as "constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity."

Wait, what?

First, a little history. CrossFit was developed over several decades by trainer Greg Glassman, who believed the definition of fitness at the time was incomplete. Back in the 1990s-early 2000s, the fittest people in the world were believed to be champions of the triathlon—athletes that could travel the farthest in the shortest amount of time. Not only did he believe the definition of fitness was broken, he also found a fault in the gyms he trained clients in. Glassman saw that everyone in the gym was using machines to perform exercises that only worked one muscle group, exercises that had no functions in real life.

Like any visionary, Glassman wanted to break the mold. He created CrossFit, a program based on the belief that fitness should be inclusive— including gymnastics, body weight movements and Olympic weightlifting. CrossFit is created to make you healthier, better at life. That's why the weightlifting movements we do activate numerous muscle groups, mimicking things you do in real life like squatting, lifting, pushing and pulling.

Back to our definition, starting with "constantly varied." CrossFit workouts (They're called WODs, as in workout of the day) change every day. Sometimes they are longer, sometimes shorter. Sometimes we program heavier weights, sometimes it's just body weight. Kind of like the demands of life. You never know what's coming.

Next, "functional movements," which we've covered already. Basically, CrossFit makes you better at the movements life requires.

Last, "Performed at a relatively high intensity." CrossFit workouts are measured. They're either timed or we count reps (number of movements completed). The exercises in a WOD are completed as fast as possible, helping you build a higher level of fitness, so you can watch yourself progress over time.

A note about safety. Some of the movements are complex, and every CrossFit workout will test you. That's why safety is always BRICK's (and every one of our coach's) first priority. Every WOD is scalable, so you'll always get a challenging workout, no matter your personal fitness level.

B|X

"In my first few months at BRICK, my body has undergone a huge transformation and I am doing things "
FIND OUT MORE

"I never imagined. Every day the workout is different and challenging."

"I've seen great results, and I only expect to get better…"

These are just some of the things our BRICK members have been saying about our award winning B|X program. Developed specifically for BRICK, B|X was created to give any one a workout that is both easy-to-start and incredibly challenging.

When BRICK was first opening, it became obvious that we needed a program that included CrossFit's strength-building movements, omitting the complex gymnastics and Olympic weight-lifting exercises. This course also needed to incorporate dynamic explosive movements as well as endurance training. Our trainers put their heads together to create a revolutionary program that combined all three of these disciplines. Today, that program is called B|X.

High-energy and high-intensity, B|X classes are held in a supportive group setting. Each class features a series of stations that highlight different movements, and just like CrossFit the sessions are always different. Point blank, B|X was designed to have you saying…

"I love it here at BRICK; I am the fittest I have ever been in my life."
