Our mission at OC Athletix is to help you achieve your fitness goals ... and give you the tools, community, and coaches to help.
CrossFit is a fitness regimen developed by Greg Glassman over several decades. Glassman, CrossFit's Founder and CEO, was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way: increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. He then created a program specifically designed to improve fitness and health.
CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.
OC Athletix members will use the WODTogether program as our payment processor, workout tracker, and scheduling tool. Members will use WODTogether to pay for their memberships, store purchases, track their workouts and training data, as well as pre-register for gym classes and events. For those not on WODTogether already, we will send you a link in a separate email in the next week.
With more coaching experience, education, and services than any CrossFit in our area, we look forward to continued growth and improvement in every way.
