WOD = Workout of the Day
Paramount Strength & Conditioning offers a daily high intensity group fitness workout coached by CrossFit certified personal trainers. We follow a “minimalist program”and this is reflected by the functionality and limited number of our exercises and the simplicity of the equipment we use compared to most commercial gyms. What you’ll find: an Olympic weight set and a place to do pull-ups and dips is essential to doing CrossFit; gymnastics rings and parallettes, plyometrics boxes, a Dynamax medicine ball, dumbbells, kettlebells, Concept II Rower and a glute-ham developer.
WHAT TO EXPECT
CrossFit workouts are extremely demanding and will tax the capacities of even the world’s best athletes so we advise anyone new to CrossFit to take on each WOD carefully and cautiously, working first towards completing the workouts comfortably and consistently before “throwing” yourself at them 100%. The best results come for those who’ve “gone through the motions” of the WOD by reducing recommended loads, reps and sets while not endeavoring towards impressive times for a month before turning up the heat. We counsel you to establish consistency with the WOD before maximizing intensity.
Classes: Unless otherwise noted, all training offered by Paramount SC is performed in a group setting, at a predetermined time. Each group training class offered on a particular day conducts the same workout of the day, or “WOD” – if you miss a morning class, you can pick up an evening class without missing a beat. Classes are lead by a head instructor; depending on class size, a second instructor may join to help ensure that each athlete is getting the level of instruction consistent with Paramount SC’s standards. Group Training Classes are infinitely scalable according to the needs, strengths, and weaknesses of each athlete. Additionally, select elements of each workout can be customized to suit the capabilities, fitness-level, or fitness goals of each attendee.
Structure: Consistent with CrossFit programming guidelines, few – if any – Group Training WOD’s will take no more than 30 minutes to complete. That said, participants should still expect to be in the gym for one hour. In addition to comprehensive warmup and cool-downs, time between the WOD and the Warmup / Cool-down is spent instructing and practicing movements designed to both increase skill competency and improve mobility.
WODs: In order to reduce the temptation to selectively attend workouts which appear to be more favorable, WOD’s are released in the early morning hours of the day they’re to be performed on the Paramount SC website.
