What is CrossFit? What is CrossFit Paulding?


CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program with the aim of improving, among other things, cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. It advocates a perpetually varied mix of aerobic exercise, gymnastics (body weight exercises), and Olympic weight lifting.  CrossFit  is a strength and conditioning program with constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity across broad modal and time domains, with the stated goal of improving fitness, which it defines as 'work capacity across broad time and modal domains.' Hour-long classes at affiliated gyms, or 'boxes', typically include a warm-up, a skill development segment, the high-intensity 'workout of the day' (or WOD), and a period of individual or group stretching.  
CrossFit programming used by thousands of private affiliated gyms, fire departments, law enforcement agencies, and military organizations as well as by some U.S. and Canadian high school physical education teachers, high school and college sports teams.

CrossFit Paulding

Vision Statement- At CrossFit Paulding, our vision is to be the safest and most effective CrossFit Box in West Atlanta by providing a higher degree of teaching, coaching, and mentoring through small group classes instead of the typical, intimidating, crowded gym environment.  
Mission Statement- The key elements to achieving our vision are Professional Training, Community Atmosphere and Leading by Example.  
1. Professional Training- We will provide quality training in semi-private groups of a maximum of 10 clients per instructor. We will treat our clients like individuals in order to maximize their personal development. Regardless of skill level, we are honored to have the opportunity to be of service in developing your personal training plan.
2. Community Atmosphere- Our sense of community will be about generosity, respect, passion, motivation and integrity. We will live these values both in the gym and in our community by sharing with others without reservation, and always striving to be a good citizen. We will not be about gloss or glamour, but instead will focus on hard work and honest sweat.
3. Leading by Example- Our coaches will only train what they do themselves. Our coaches will only be dedicated CrossFit athletes. Our coaches will be focused on helping our clients find their “inner athlete”, and then develop it to the level the client desires.

Our Values at CrossFit Paulding

1.) Community – In modern day life a sense of community outside one’s extended family is largely absent. Not here. We are family.  
2.) Determination – We strive to instill a sense of determination to our athletes who then take that determination and apply it to all aspects of their life. This contributes to a higher quality of life for us and our athletes.
3.) Passion – We are passionate about our work as coaches. We love what we do and we seek to instill that passion in others.
4.) Humility – Humility is a hallmark of high character. We are humble so that everyone may feel welcome at our box and within our community.
