CrossFit Salem and Our Methodology:
At CFS we employ the Crossfit methodology as well as many others to build a proven system for effective fitness results. The Crossfit system is “constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity”… or in simple terms “lots of fun basic movements that change every day and foster your best efforts”.
Crossfit is a broad general term and every gym (or box as we call it) is very different. At CFS we have the most experience in the area at creating safe and extremely effective programming, which leads to maximum results. Our trainers include current and former college athletes, exercise science students and graduates, firefighter paramedics, law enforcement officers, and many other backgrounds. With this diversity we have created a unique system that replicates the best knowledge in many fields and is unparallelled in how it motivates and trains you to increase your fitness level. These people have a passion for fitness and community, and we think you’ll see that is shows!~
The Crossfit Salem system uses all of the following training tools to create the most well rounded fitness available:
With this variety of training tools you will not get bored and quit, therefore having the best chance of success! With all these movements there is a progression with beginner, intermediate, and advanced versions of the movements. You will start with basic human movements and when those are perfected a load and intensity will be applied.
The Generic CrossFit Definition:
CrossFit is a principal strength and conditioning program. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We have used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen. Currently there is over 900 CrossFit gyms worldwide and growing.
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” Note: you will not learn how to program a computer at CFS!

“Today is my one year since I started Crossfit at Crossfit Salem. I am so glad I found the place. I have made many great friends, had new experiences. I cannot speak enough how much it has changed me. I feel so much better because of Crossfit. Thank You Andy and Carol for providing such a fantastic place to go. Thank Yo…u to the rest of my Crossfit crew for helping me through this first year!”
“…When I joined CrossFit Salem in August 09, I quickly discovered that I had not been pushing myself anywhere near my limits. I’ve lost two pant sizes. I can open my own jars and carry my own 40lb bags of dog food with ease.”
“For me the changes that I have made through Crossfit have been huge. I have never been an athlete and never done much more than walk on a treadmill. Sometimes in a middle of a workout, when I am doing things (or let’s say attempting to do… things) I never in a million years thought I would do, I just think how anyone who really knows ME would be shocked! Thanks Andy, Carol and the Salem Crossfit community. I would have quit a long time ago had it not been for your encouragement and support. I r…
“I couldn’t believe the drastic changes in just a few weeks. I have learned so much and after several years of boring and unmotivating workouts- I am excited to train again. For that, I can never thank you guys enough!”
“…I joined CrossFit Salem three months ago in an effort to maintain my level of fitness. I have far exceeded my own expectations!”
“I’m not as sore as I thought I’d be…just “good” sore! I can still get out of my desk chair without help…that is a good sign!”
Wear athletic shoes and apparel. Arrive 10 minutes early and introduce yourself to the other participants, start stretching (as best you know how). There is a basic warm up written on the white board... just start doing that and class will start at about 5 after.
Thanks for reading and we can't wait to see you at CrossFit Salem getting in the best shape of your life in a fun supportive environment!
