The aim of the ON RAMP is to expose you to the 9 fundamental movements used in CrossFit and to work on your skill development. We will prepare you to enter the CrossFit classes knowing that you can confidently carry out the movement safely and efficiently.
The 9 fundamental movements of CrossFit are:
- The Squat
- The Front Squat
- The Overhead Squat
- The Press
- The Push Press
- The Push Jerk
- The Sumo Deadlift High Pull
- The Deadlift
- The Medicine Ball Clean
These are just the basic movements; we will also be teaching you kettlebell skills for conditioning, gymnastic skills for midline stability, Olympic lifts the clean, clean and jerk and the snatch. Plyo-metric skills like box jumping and jump rope work. All these and many more will be covered in the ON RAMP.
Each ‘ON RAMP’ course will start and finish with the CrossFit benchmark WOD. We guarantee you will see a significant improvement in your performance from your first session to your last.
On completion of the ‘ON RAMP’ you will receive a certificate of your achievement; from here you are free to attend any CrossFit class. This is just the start of your CrossFit journey; With CrossFit now part of your lifestyle, you will remain to be constantly motivated, encouraged and inspired to reach higher heights.
Once you have completed the ON RAMP you can take part in the CrossFit group classes. Group training is excellent for motivation and you will always push harder training together than what you will training alone.
A typical CrossFit class will consist of the following:
- Warm up
- Skill/Strength work
- Talk through the WOD with scaling options
- WOD (workout of the day) published daily on the CrossFit Gateshead Team Valley website Click here to check it out !
- Cool down stretching
Remember the WOD is scalable to your ability/skill level so no matter what you always get a good stimulant workout.
At CrossFit Gateshead we encourage our community to grow as one, upon completion of your WOD feel free to hang around and encourage each other, share tips or ask any questions.
REMEMBER – the WOD is ALWAYS SCALABLE to your ability/skill level thus ensuring you can maximise your workout.
