Crossfit DUMBO is an atypical fitness experience located in DUMBO.
In many of your typical gyms and health clubs throughout the world the typical workout consists of isolation movements and extended aerobic sessions. The fitness community from trainers to the magazines has the exercising public believing that lateral raises, curls, leg extensions, sit-ups and the like combined with 20-40 minute stints on the stationary bike or treadmill are going to lead to some kind of great fitness. Well though that may get you toned & looking great. We, at CrossFit DUMBO will work exclusively with compound movements and shorter high intensity cardiovascular sessions. We’ve replaced the lateral raise with the push-press, the curl with pull-ups, and the leg extension with squats. For every long distance effort our athletes will do five or six at short distance.
Why? Because compound or functional movements, and high intensity or anaerobic cardio is radically more effective at eliciting nearly any desired fitness result! You may think this is all a gimmick but this is not a matter of our opinion but solid irrefutable scientific fact and yet the marginally effective old ways persist and are nearly universal. Our approach is consistent with what is practiced in elite training programs associated with major university athletic teams and professional sports. We as the CrossFit community bring these proven state-of-the-art coaching techniques & principles to the general public are you ready to make change?
