We have one core adult program at Factorial (our CrossFit classes) and two add-on programs intended to provide extra skill and strength training depending on the goals for each member.
Our CrossFit class programming is focused on general physical preparedness aimed at increasing longevity. These classes are for everyone regardless of experience level, and our coaches routinely customize workouts to fit the unique needs of each person in our classes.
Class workouts combine the most effective training methods of Weightlifting, Gymnastics, and High Intensity Cardio because we believe that this type of training combination universally increases one’s functional capacity in all ten general physical skills (cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy).
Our class workouts vary from day-to-day with regard to the type of movements used within each workout, repetition volume, and time spent working out. This is done by design for the purpose of preparing our athletes for the unknown and unknowable, and to effectively challenge the body in as many ways as possible. The added bonus is that coming to the gym is no longer boring; each day is different!
Competitor CrossFit Program
For those among us who want to take their purpose of doing CrossFit beyond longevity into the realm of making it their sport, we provide competitor programming as an extension to our CrossFit program. This program includes five days of additional workouts each week with two intentional rest days for recovery. The additional strength, conditioning, and skill work within this program are intended to be completed during Open Gym either before or after the CrossFit (class) workout of the day. Therefore, a member doing this program should expect to do the one-hour class workout of the day (WOD) in addition to 30-60 minutes of added training volume before or after class, five times per week.
* There is no additional cost for our competitor program. We provide this programming to all members regardless of membership level; however, an unlimited membership is needed in order to have Open Gym access.
We offer a weightlifting program as a membership add-on for members who are interested in training to compete in weightlifting meets, or for those who just want to just improve their olympic lifts with specialized programming and coached training sessions.
This program consists of three days of weightlifting programming each week. Two of the training days are 90-minute coach-led training sessions, taking place every Wednesday and Sunday. The third day of programming is completed during Open Gym.
Every CrossFitter knows that the olympic lifts are regularly trained and performed in CrossFit, but we also know that the olympic lifts are highly technical, requiring a lot of skill and many months, if not years, of practice to do well. The intent of this program is to offer consistent and focused coaching to all Factorial members who want frequent and specialized training on the olympic lifts.
This program is intended for ALL athletes regardless of ability level. The coached sessions are 90-minute classes, and are tailored to develop lifts based on your needs.
