At Solidarity CrossFit performance based fitness is more than a buzz-phrase, it is our philosophy. We believe in focusing on what you can do above all else. Put away the scale. Walk away from the mirror. Focus on your abilities and the rest will fall into place. Not only that, but the journey will be much more rewarding.
We strive for proficiency in all areas: Cardiovascular Endurance; Stamina; Strength; Flexibility; Power; Speed; Coordination; Accuracy; Agility; Balance. We constantly track progress in these areas in order set goals and priorities. Data is of central importance; stopwatches, whiteboards, and personal journals are as important as any piece of equipment in the gym. Can you run faster than you could last month? Last year? Can you pull your own bodyweight over a given obstacle? Can you pick up your grandchild? Are you progressing towards these goals? In which areas do you need improvement?
What’s In a Name?
sol|i·dar·i|ty n., – unity based on community of interests, objectives, and standards
Solidarity CrossFit is a place for those with a common interest in improving their health and fitness to come together, leave their comfort zone, and work hard. With this shared objective and unity of purpose we can accomplish much more together than we ever could alone.
Community is ingrained in all we do. We are here to challenge one another, compete with one another, encourage one another, and share knowledge and educate one another. There are no cardio-theatres or magazine racks. One cannot be coached while wearing earbuds. We demand mindfulness and involvement during training. Everyone is a stakeholder with valuable information to both share and receive.
And finally, we share common standards. Data is the bedrock of any performance-based fitness program, and data has no value without standards. Standards are how we maintain safety and build virtuosity in movement. Standards safeguard our bodies inside and outside the walls of our gym. Intensity is important to what we do, but it always follows mechanics and consistency.
