Why Plymouth CrossFit Lower Town
There are many elements that go into making a world-class facility. From the training components like having 15,000 square feet of training space and high quality equipment to practical components like ample free parking, a spacious front gathering area, and showers, our facility has all the necessary components to help you get fit and stay fit for life.
We are not only a boot camp facility. Prior to moving to CrossFit classes, you will complete 5 one-on-one personal training sessions that will properly prepare you for the demands of group CrossFit classes.
Learning movements that are required for improved fitness – movements like squats, snatches and pull-ups – take time, as does improving your mobility, your endurance, your speed and your power.
We wouldn’t want to throw people into CrossFit classes right away, we believe this would be a recipe for failure. Members aren’t prepared; they may not understand their capabilities; they over-train; they can get injured. Or they are simply too intimidated to even show up to a class.
Improving your fitness is a slow process. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses when they show up at our doors. Some members struggle with mobility, others with stability, others yet come to us two months after having knee surgery and need to be tended to with care. And on the other end of the spectrum, some athletes arrive at our door well-conditioned with an extensive athletic background.
The point is we all have different needs when we start a new strength and conditioning program. It doesn’t make sense to throw you right into classes before you have properly learned the movements. So at Plymouth CrossFit Lower Town, by the time you move to classes, you’ll have a good understanding of 30-40 movements, and you will know exactly how to scale each movement if you’re not yet able to master everything.
This also means that by the time you get to classes you will feel confident and comfortable showing up to hit the workout with the group.
We offer classes at 5:00am, 5:30am, 6:00am, 9:30am, 12:00pm, 4:00pm, 5:30pm, 6:00pm, 6:30pm, 7:30pm on weekdays. We’re open on Saturday’s for 8am, 9am, and 10am classes as well as 10:00am and 12:00pm on Sunday’s! We offer more classes than any other CrossFit affiliate in the area.
We know you have a busy and hectic schedule, and since we have more coaches and apprentice coaches than any other CrossFit facility, we have the ability to offer more classes than other facilities.
But more than this, our morning coaches do not coach in the evenings, and our evening coaches do not coach in the mornings. This means that you will not be coached by a tired, burnt out coach at 8 pm. Our coaches work a manageable 10 to 20 hours a week, so they have plenty of energy to give to each member and each class.
We don’t just offer personal training and group classes. We offer both seasonal and ongoing specialty programs for members who are looking to work on their weaknesses, or for members who just want to mix it up a bit.
We offer the following programs below:
Our specialty programs help members tackle their weaknesses, and they simply provide more options for experienced members who want to try something new.
There are many elements that go into making a world-class facility. From the training components like having 15,000 square feet of training space and high quality equipment to practical components like ample free parking, a spacious front gathering area, a showers, a separate Olympic Lifting area, our facility has all the necessary components to help you get fit and stay fit for life.
In short, everything runs more smoothly when things are done out of passion. Our owners and coaches are passionate about health, CrossFit, Our Box, Our Community and most importantly….YOU!!
We have been open for years. We have learned through trial and error what people need and want from their training facility……and we listen.
The strength in our CrossFit lies in our community. From BBQs to Halloween parties, fitness competitions like the Motor City Summer Open and Battle of the Boxes to participating in Relay For Life, our members are more than just fitness junkies.
Fitness is something that should make your life better; it’s not something we think should dominate your life. We believe it’s important to be well-rounded people who know how to let loose, have a drink and socialize with friends.
And, we have learned that members who are engaged in the community are more likely to want to show up to the CrossFit to workout – because they show up not just to workout, but also to enjoy themselves socially.
