ABOUT CFCA

OUR MISSON

Our primary goal at CFCA is to help our members increase their capability, durability (both mental and physical) and most importantly longevity through consistent quality movement in a fun, safe and supportive environment. We have evolved over the years into what we’d consider more of a “lifestyle” crossfit gym. We tend to prioritize exercises that we feel are safer and sustainable long term (lower impact) and have the best carryover to the demands of our member’s lives outside of the gym. 

OUR CLASSES & WORKOUTS

All of our classes run one hour in length. Some classes may be focused on strength & skill development while others will have a larger cardiovascular emphasis, but the majority of the classes will likely be a blend of the two. The general idea behind the Crossfit program is to keep the exercises and sessions varied so the body will adapt to the broad range of demands that life can throw at you….lifting or carrying heavy things, running, jumping, throwing, crawling. We make a point to mix it up from day to day which keeps it fresh, fun and exciting for our members! 

We post our daily workouts in a weekly format on our homepage. We generally post a “Performance” and “Fitness” variations of the workout for each day.  Performance workouts tend to utilize more complex movements and heavier weights with an emphasis on higher intensity. Fitness workouts will have a broader spectrum of movements (beginner to advanced) to choose from with a greater emphasis on volume at a moderate to high intensity. Emphasis for our members is always put on establishing safe movement patterns and building a strong fitness foundation before increasing the level of intensity or progressing to higher skill exercises. 

OUR COACHES

Our coaches run every class as a teacher, a resource for questions, a motivator, a support system, and a safety supervisor. We are responsible for ensuring that your form is correct and that the exercise volume and load is adjusted to your current fitness level. Sometimes we may give you a nudge if needed to push it little more and other times we may encourage you to slow down. Beyond that, coaches make themselves available to meet with our current members to discuss realistic goals, nutrition and to help them establish positive lifestyle practices.

OUR COMMUNITY 

At CFCA, we have been blessed with an amazing diversity of members. We have members of all shapes and sizes from all different levels of fitness.  All in all, you won’t find a more humble and generally well-natured community on Cape Ann. We have always made a point to keep CFCA a fun, engaging and above all a supportive and inclusive environment. Enough can’t be said about the power of a supportive community of active folks for making lasting lifestyle changes.
