What Is Cross Train Gym For?
CrossTrain Gym Long Island provides a total body fitness program that incorporates full body motions and body weight exercises including gymnastic movements, jumping, climbing, kettlebell training, rowing, and more. These exercises are combined into random combinations at various intensities with short rest periods to achieve optimal results. By scaling the intensity and skill level of each workout, it is ideal for people of all ages and experience levels.
Cross Train Gym Long Island fitness program is designed to improve fitness in TEN AREAS:
- Cardio/Respiratory Endurance
Because each workout at CrossTrain Gym Long Island is constantly changing and consistently challenging, there is little room for your body to plateau, your results to stagnate, and for your routine to bore you.
It has been proven that CrossTrain Gym Long Island increases energy levels, boosts metabolism, improves body composition, enhances performance, and elevates fitness, all of which improve the quality of life!
IS THIS FOR ME?
Absolutely! The needs of the average, everyday person and the needs of a professional or Olympic athlete differ by degree, not by kind. “Huh?” you say? Let’s put it this way: We all want to look fit and healthy, to feel better and to live longer with a better quality of life. We can accomplish all of this if we increase power, strength, cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, flexibility, stamina, coordination, agility and balance, right? The truth is that the very same methods that are used on the worlds greatest athletes to make them preform at their best, are the same methods that will help us attain the goals we just stated above. While not all of us can workout at the Olympic level, what we CAN do is scale the exercises to ANY fitness level; from children to grandparents. EVERYONE has a level in which they can perform at CrossTrain Gym Long Island. We program the exercises to challenge the best athlete at the gym; that doesn’t mean that its set in stone. The expert CrossTrain Gym Coaches will adjust the weight or the number of reps down to your level at no consequence. We help you set your own intensity level to accommodate any fitness or comfort level. The exercises don’t change, the way you lift doesn’t change and the methodology doesn’t change. The weight, reps and intensity do.
Now with that being said, “Is CrossTrain Gym Long Island for YOU?”. Well, if you are happy with the way you look and feel, with the results you got the last time you exercised and the hour and a half regular gym routine of isolating muscle groups and 30 plus minutes of cardiovascular exercise, then NO. Stay where you are and stay the way you are. But, if you like new challenges, the excitement and camaraderie of group workouts, the motivation of fun competition and constantly varied, higher intensities of exercise with RESULTS that are in direct correlation with the work and dedication you bring, then YES. Come on in and join the team!
The best way to get a real sense of the CrossTrain Gym Long Island program is to attend our 4-Week Jump Start Series. Each session includes careful instruction on basic movements followed by a short workout based on those movements.
New Jump Start sessions begin every three weeks and are limited to six students. To attend you must sign up in advance to reserve your spot.
The Jump Start series is suitable for all fitness levels. We know that trying a new workout program or gym can be intimidating, and we’ve built our Jump Start series to allow anyone to jump right in, regardless of the shape they’re in.
What is the WOD?
It is the “Workout of the Day”. This workout could be a “named” workout, developed and described on the national site, or it could be a workout we have developed here. It is all part of the “constant variation” philosophy at CrossTrain Gym Long Island.
What can I expect my first week?
We know CrossTraining can be very intimidating so your first week will not be very intense or difficult. You will be lead through a warm up of basic movements, taught 2-3 new basic skills and then given a workout in which the intensity (how hard the workout is) will be entirely up to you. If you feel confident in your fitness ability you can go as hard as you want at the workout. If you have not worked out in awhile or ever you will be encouraged to take your time and finish the workout.
Can I go to Cross Train Gym with a neck, back or knee injury?
Yes, we have numerous clients that come to us with back, knee, or neck pain who have found relief by strengthening the muscles around the problem area. People often neglect exercising their lower back due to fear of re-injuring and then end up weak, de-conditioned, and more susceptible to injury in the future. Every movement at CrossTrain Gym Long Island is scalable allowing anyone to take part. For example if we have programmed deadlifts (picking up an object off the ground) you can scale it down using a PVC pipe or even just mimicking the movement as rehabilitation for the injured area.
Can I get a good workout in under 30 minutes?
Yes , more and more research shows that short, high intensity effort will produce better results than long and slow durations. If you run a 10k your intensity (power output) will be lower than if you run 400 meter sprints which will produce a higher power output. Meaning you’re doing more work in less time. This is why we will push you to your physiological and psychological tolerances during any given workout. No matter who you are or what workout you do, without hard work you will not receive results. We do run 10k and have workouts that go over 30 minutes on occasion but the majority of our workouts are 7-20 minutes in duration. We spend the beginning of every class working through active warm-ups and movements designed to increase range of motion.
Do I need to get fit before starting at CrossTrain Gym Long Island?
NO! A THOUSAND TIMES NO!!!! Out fitness program at CrossTrain Gym Long Island is designed for athletes of ALL levels — from professional athletes, to desk jockeys, to homemakers, to retirees. We scale load and intensity for all of our clients based on their individual fitness level and ability. Going to a traditional gym first will just delay the benefits you will receive from a CrossTraining regimen. The workout you see posted on the site is for the most elite athlete. If you see it and think you can’t do a lot of it, no problem, very few can. We can scale every movement and every workout until you are strong/fit enough to complete the workout as it is prescribed (Rx’d). Fitness is an ongoing pursuit. The most elite athlete can come into our gym and find a workout challenging. Nobody is “fit” enough. Whatever level you are at now, you go at the workout as hard to you can, getting fitter and fitter each day.
What about the cost?
We actually cost a lot less than most fitness studios or personal training. It will cost 60-75 dollars per hour for a personal trainer. At CrossTrain Gym Long Island you will always have a coach with you. They will be teaching you the movements, demonstrating movements, giving nutrition advice, and pushing you to your limits. Not only are you getting personal training, but you’re also joining a great team that makes workouts fun and exciting.
I have heard CrossTraining is hard, is this true?
CrossTraining is as hard as you make it. When you first start you are encouraged to take it slow, and learn the movements. After that, we encourage you to push yourself as hard as you can, this is what keeps cross training challenging. If you are asked to sprint 400 meters for time you can do one of two things: sprint it as hard as you can, which will not be a comfortable feeling, or jog it. The person who goes as fast as they can will get better results and yes it will be hard.
Am I too old or too young to start at Cross Train Gym Long Island?
Because our program uses natural, functional movements anybody can do it. Kids today play on jungle gyms, run, jump, and throw and that’s exactly what we do at CrossTrain Gym Long Island. You are never too old to start working out! Remember every workout is as hard as YOU make it.
How often do I need to come in?
At CrossTrain Gym Long Island we promote three days working, followed by 1 day of rest, or five days on two days off which is very demanding. You will notice that we program a workout every day for the simple reason that most people have hectic lives and cannot follow a strict three days on, one day off. When you first start out, your body will take time to adjust and yes you will get sore, so we recommend coming every other day for the first month.
By becoming a part of CrossTrain Gym Long Island and its mission, you will become part of a team. Within this team, you will find camaraderie and support that will push you further than you would ever push yourself!
