Group Classes

CrossFit

In the last 8 years, our CrossFit program has grown and transitioned from a small group of athletes working out in our founder’s garage, to now offering up to 9 CrossFit classes a day, with two coaches on the majority of our classes to accommodate our members!

We offer traditional CrossFit classes that focus on general physical preparedness, cross-functional movement and fitness! Our CrossFit classes are coached in a safe and motivating environment, and focus on proper mechanics, consistency, and intensity of all skill, strength, and conditioning movements.

A typical class involves a warm-up, followed by a strength or lifting piece, the WOD, or workout of the day, and end with durability, and proper cool-down immediately following.

During each class, movements, repetitions, and weights are explained and demonstrated to all athletes in the class. The best thing about CrossFit is the ability to scale movements and weight up OR down to suite each individual athlete’s needs and comfort level.

What is CrossFit? 

A form of high intensity interval training, CrossFit is a strength and conditioning workout that is made up of functional movement performed at a high intensity level.

These movements are actions that you perform in your day-to-day life, like squatting, pulling, lifting and pushing. Many workouts feature variations of squats, push-ups, bodyweight movements, and weightlifting that last for predetermined amounts of time to help build muscles.

“For the past 7 years this 46-year-old father of two has seen significant improvements in overall physical health and life satisfaction as a result of becoming a member of Mohawk Valley Wellness. 

I am stronger and faster than I have ever been in my entire life. I have PR’ed  my 5k (<20) and Boilermaker (<65) during the past few years, reduced my body fat below 10%, and  frequently land in the top 15% in Spartan races. 

I attribute this success to the quality of coaching, variety of workouts, and breadth of equipment. To be honest, however, the best part of Mohawk Valley Wellness is the friendships I have made. There is no better way to start my day than working out surrounded by positive and funny people!” 

“Our mission is to provide practical and effective fitness solutions that will help you achieve your wellness goals and live life to the fullest.”

“Mohawk Valley Wellness has been a part of my life for over 2 years.  I say my life because not only is it an important part of my physical health but also my mental and emotional health. The fitness class has helped me get the most physically fit I’ve been in 25 years.  In this time I have also developed some pretty amazing and supportive friendships! 

I was hesitant at first about group classes but this ‘family’ pushes and encourages you to be your best without any judgement.  The coaches, particularly Vin have modified things for me during injuries and continues to check on my progress. The additional services such as massage, sauna, chiropractic care and the ability to pick up balanced chef meals all improved the overall wellness in anyone. I look forward to continuing my journey here!”
