For us fitness is a state of mind, a way of being. It’s apparent in the way you talk, walk, sleep, eat, work, play, dress and relax. It is the physical embodiment of the character traits of honor, courage, confidence, discipline, integrity, responsibility, dedication, and joy. It is also instrumental in reducing the immediate and cumulative effects of stress and anxiety.
We’ve found that the fitter a person is, the more he/she is physically able to do the things that bring joy and fun to life – everything from feeling strong, confident and energetic through your normal work day, running around with your kids, being physically active and playing sports, to traveling to remote corners of the earth.
Being physically fit is inspiring, feels good, enriches your life, and adds both years to your life, and life to your years. People that are fit seem to have a clearer, more optimistic view of life. For us, the bottom line is this: Fitness allows you to live your best.
A Workout at SOCF
You will find that each day at South Orlando CrossFit is varied. You never doing the same workout twice. You can expect the WOD or “workout of the day” to last an hour. During that time you will be coached by a Level 1 Certified CrossFit Coach.
Each class consists of the following:
- Group Dynamic Warm-Up or Mobility – This is catered to the WOD we will be doing that day or to stretch out what we worked the previous day
- Strength or Gymnastics/Skill – This is not on a set schedule and rotates depending on the day/week
- Dailly Workout of the Day (WOD) – We will go over the movements for the workout with everyone to ensure everyone understands the standard for that movement. Then it’s 3, 2, 1, GO!
During the workout one to two coaches will be on the floor coaching the athletes on form, technique, and pushing them to work as hard as they can during the WOD. We want our athletes to leave it all on the floor and give 100% to each WOD!
Our Vision for South Orlando CrossFit is to build a community that is healthy, strong and vital, whose participants have the courage to live outside the generally accepted as “normal” belief that health, fitness and vitality must decline with age.
