LEARN HOW TO BE FIT & STRONG

Crossfit is a strength and conditioning program designed to target and optimize all aspects of fitness and wellness

WHAT IS CROSSFIT?

Crossfit is a strength and conditioning program designed to target and optimize all aspects of fitness and wellness. Crossfit defines 3 standards of fitness: developing all 10 fitness domains, training for the unknowable, and using all 3 metabolic pathways.

1

Fitness is composed of 10 recognized fitness domains. They include:

Cardiovascular/respiratory, endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Accuracy, Agility, Balance,
Coordination

2

Fitness is about performing well at any and every task imaginable, whether that task is lifting barbells, carrying groceries, or walking up the stairs. And to be prepared for anything life throws your way- sprinting to catch the bus, pushing your out-of-gas car to the side of the road, or building a deck in the backyard.

3

There are 3 metabolic pathways that provide the energy for all human action. In short, there is a different energy pathway for activities that are short & high power, medium & moderate power, and long & low power.

WHO IS AUXILIARY CROSSFIT?

TORONTO STRONG – TORONTO PROUD

Established in 2011 at our first location on Dupont Street in the heart of Toronto, Auxiliary has built an amazing community of athletes who share in the values of hard work, honesty, and humility. As of 2013, we have made the Lower Junction Triangle our home, with members coming from all over the City of Toronto.

Our mission is to provide functional workouts for people of all ages and abilities, with the goal of increasing all aspects of fitness and improving quality of life. Our facility is 100% Crossfit. At Auxiliary Crossfit, we train hard and push ourselves beyond all imagined limits. With this, we build relationships with those around us, and develop a strong community.

HOW DOES A CROSSFIT GYM WORK?

A Crossfit gym operates differently than a traditional gym. Members attend structured classes, rather than working out on their own, in an “open gym” format. Classes are always led by a certified Coach.

All our coaches at Auxiliary Crossfit are required to have a minimum certification of Level 1 Crossfit, one additional certification (i.e. Gymnastics, Olympic Lifting), and Standard First Aid. All members of our current coaching team meet and exceed this requirement.

The one-hour Crossfit class includes warm-up, mobility, movement instruction, and a workout. The coach oversees all class participants, and provides individual coaching and instruction to participants when needed or requested.

Is Crossfit Right for Me?

Crossfit is a form of exercise that is universally scalable, and is appropriate or all ages, abilities, and skill levels. The question you should ask yourself is, what is/are your goal(s)?  If you want to change your body composition, lose body fat, gain strength in a safe, supportive, and highly structured environment, then Crossfit is probably for you. We encourage you to check out Auxiliary Crossfit, meet our team and our members and even jump into a class.
