This section will help you understand some of the jargon you'll hear in the gym and see on our site:

The Workouts

WOD: Workout of the Day

The WOD is written on the board in our gym as the workout to be done in class that day.

AMRAP: As many rounds (or reps) as possible

This is a workout format where you have a specific amount of time to do as much work as possible as described in the workout.

EMOM: Every minute on the minute

This is a workout format where you have a specific amount of time to do as much work as possible as described in the workout.

Tabata:

This is a workout format where you perform 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. A typical Tabata set has 8 rounds.

RX = As prescribed

If you complete a workout RX, that means you did it exactly as prescribed, with full range of motion and did not scale exercises.

The Girls:

These are named benchmark workouts that exist throughout the global CrossFit community. Don't underestimate the girls - they are tougher than they look.

The Heroes:

These are the other benchmark workouts. They are named after fallen military personnel, law enforcement officers, and other CrossFitters who have fallen in the line of duty. These workouts tend to be long and hard.
