CrossFit Salus…our name


Ever wonder how we came up with our name? CrossFit Salus

The Latin word Salus has many meanings: health, well-being, safety and salvation.

(pronounced ‘s ai l uh s‘)

CrossFit Salus

The “O” in CrossFit is the box that represents the three modalities most commonly found in CrossFit workouts including metabolic conditioning (like running, rowing and jumping rope), gymnastics movements (like push-ups, pull-ups, ring work and muscle-ups), and weightlifting (like the clean and jerk, dead lift and the overhead squat). Don’t worry if you don’t know what these are – our job is to teach you!

The “A” in Salus represents the solid foundation the CrossFit philosophy is balanced on as well as the classic CrossFit Pyramid.

PYRAMID OF CROSSFIT

Level 1: Nutrition

Everything should start with nutrition as your base. If you eat terrible, you’re going to get terrible results. Simple as that. Without getting too complicated – eat meat and vegetables, some fruit, nuts and seeds, little starch and no sugar. Eat only enough to support exercise but not to add body fat. Check out Foundation Nutrition Coaching for more information.

Level 2: Metabolic Conditioning

Simply put: cardio, aerobic capacity. Want to “breath better?” Climb stairs without getting out of breath, enjoy a hike with the kids? Jump rope, row, bike, run…even burpees will help you with that. Check out CrossFit Salus Endurance for more information.

Level 3: Gymnastics

Control your own body in space and time and perform all range of motion is why we emphasize mobility and gymnastics skill work. At Salus, we love to work on bodyweight exercises like pushups, pullups, handstands. We get our hands on the floor, we hang from the rings, bars and always focus on safety first.

Level 4: Weightlifting

There’s a reason gymnastics comes before weightlifting. Too many times, people want to jump right to the weights before they master their own body weight exercises (gymnastics). But if you haven’t gained mastery of your own body or developed some level of aerobic conditioning, your gains in weightlifting will be slowed. Be patient and trust the process. The elite weightlifting skills as seen in the Olympics are known as the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk. Check out TripleX Weightlifting for more information.

Level 5: Sport

The programming at CrossFit Salus is designed to build your foundation that allows individuals of all levels and all ages to enjoy athleticism, strength and endurance. Whether you’re playing a game of ball with your kid on the weekend or training for a local CrossFit competition, follow this process and you’ll see the results come.

CROSSFIT GENERAL PHYSICAL SKILLS

CrossFit Salus elementsCrossFit seeks a balance of the ten general physical skills, placing no one skill above the others.

  1. Cardiovascular endurance
  2. Stamina
  3. Strength
  4. Flexibility
  5. Power
  6. Speed
  7. Coordination
  8. Agility
  9. Balance
  10. Accuracy

The goal is to have no weakness…which means finding which of these ten you’re not good at and attacking them until there’s something else on the list that’s a weakness and then attacking it and so on. The process is never ending and the goals are constantly changing.

Don’t think you’re “ready” to Start CrossFit?


Don’t think you’re “ready” to Start CrossFit? Think again!

We all had a lot of questions and concerns before we got started.

At CrossFit Salus, we program a “FITNESS” level in every class – lighter weights, modified movements, beginner-friendly.

Come see for yourself.

Our amazing (and patient) coaches are ready for you.

New Year’s Eve 2018


Happy New Year!

Announcing a new twist on our annual New Year’s Eve event.

New Years Eve 2018It’s the Girls Meet the Heroes

An Event You’ll Never Forget…

On Sunday, December 31, 11-12:30 or 12:30-3pm, “The Girls” meet the “Heroes” for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve event.

We ring in 2018 as we continue our New Year’s Eve tradition of doing “The Girls”…but now, with a twist as we blend those benchmark Girl WODs we’re all so used to for NYE, with some Hero WODs mixed in.

You can do one, two or three of the special combination WODs. (They will not be too long, two are “doable” by the average Crossfitter, three can be done on warrior mode!)

Come for one. Come for all! You choose.

When does it start? What do I bring?

All the fun starts at 11am.

Always a fun event, bring some snacks to keep you going strong, plenty of water, maybe a change of clothes. And BYOB to hang and have a drink or two after your WOD(s).

Also, we designed a very unique (limited edition) t-shirt for men/ tank for ladies that are available for purchase for $25. Reserve your size while there’s still some left: email info@crossfitsalus.com.

Reserve Now

Reservations are now open on Wodify.

Guests are welcome, choose “drop-in” to reserve and sign your waiver.

When you sign up be sure to give us a shout on Instagram or Facebook page using the hashtags: #GirlsMeetTheHeroes #CrossFitSalusNYE

Modified New Years Day Schedule

Monday, January 1, 2018, we will cancel 6am. All other classes are on as normally scheduled.

Happy New Year!
