ABOUT US

Video #1: Constantly Varied
Video #2: Functional Movement
Video #3: High Intensity
CrossFit Spencer is Spencer's ONLY CrossFit-Affiliated training facility. Our 3,000-square-foot facility is equipped with a 24' freestanding pull-up rig and squat racks, 1000s of lbs of bumper plates, barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, rowers, plyo boxes and various other equipment along with two restrooms, a lobby and a shower.

We offer a unique strength and conditioning program using the CrossFit methodology. CrossFit workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity. 

But what does that mean? It means our workouts are always different [like every day of life]; they involve full-body movements [like those found in everyday life] and we perform these movements at high intensity [but always with proper technique and form; safety is #1!].
HOW DOES IT WORK?
At CrossFit Spencer, you won’t find rows of ellipticals, stationary bikes and weight machines... Instead, we’ve got pull-up bars, kettlebells, barbells and tons of wide-open space for squatting, running, jumping, climbing and lifting  — moving your body the way it’s meant to be moved. 

All our workouts are comprised of exercises that mimic movements found in day-to-day life or in casual sports. You’d never bicep curl your child to pick them up, so why would you do it in the gym? We focus on improving functional movements that are necessary and common in your daily activities.

This also means you’ll never get bored. With our constantly varied programming, it’s rare to do the same workout twice in a given year and you’ll never have to program your own workouts or spend hours in the gym either. 

Instead, our workouts are always provided, they’re scalable to your personal fitness level, and they’re rarely longer than 45 minutes - fitting into even the busiest schedules.

Our fitness programming aims to improve your capacity in ten intuitive fitness domains: cardio-respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. The end result? Comprehensive physical fitness and restored vitality.

WHAT IF I HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH CROSSFIT ALREADY?
If you have prior experience with CrossFit - come on in! 
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are located in Spencer, Iowa on the north side of town. Our gym is located at 1721 1st Ave. West [just behind Royal Tan].
WHAT IS A “WOD?”
WOD stands for “Workout of the Day.” Don’t worry - you will pick up on all of the lingo as you go!
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO “SCALE” A WORKOUT?
“Scalability” is a word that you will hear frequently here at CrossFit Spencer. During each class, everyone does the same workout, but that workout will always have several scalable [or modified] options. This makes it possible for all of us – with our different body types, personal goals and levels of ability – to work alongside one another safely. We motivate one another, cheer on one another and sometimes participate in some healthy competition. But, ultimately, every workout is yours alone. Your workout = your pace.
WHAT IS A “BOX?”
We know... It sounds silly... But, a “box” is just an independently-owned CrossFit-Affiliated gym where you will find all the equipment you need to get in the best shape of your life, while getting hands-on training from knowledgeable CrossFit trainers. Each box has all the equipment necessary for various WODs without the bells, whistles and bicep curls of a regular gym. We guarantee you have never tried anything like this! 
WHAT IS AN “AFFILIATE?”
An affiliate is a box that is legally affiliated with the CrossFit brand. In order to become an affiliate, the box owner must be a CrossFit Trainer Certificate holder. Before you decide to join a CrossFit box, make certain that a box is a “true” affiliate, ensuring the trainers have completed the necessary levels of training. Unfortunately, not every place that says “CrossFit” is a true affiliate and sadly, many “trainers” are not certified. 
ARE THE WODS PERFORMED IN GROUPS?
Yes! The training offered by CrossFit Spencer is performed in a group setting, at pre-determined times throughout the day. Each CrossFit class offered on a particular day conducts the same Workout of the Day [or “WOD”].  If you miss a morning class, you can pick up an evening class without missing a beat. Our classes can be modified according to the needs, strengths and weaknesses of each member. Think of CrossFit as personal training in a group atmosphere.
HOW LONG ARE THE WORKOUTS? HOW LONG IS CLASS?
Workouts are typically short – 30 minutes or less – and intense - demanding all-out physical exertion. They combine movements and are mixed into numerous combinations to form the WOD. Each hour long class consists of a warm up, trainer-led skill or strength work, the workout and cool down/mobility. 
WHY DO YOU VARY THE WORKOUTS?
CrossFit’s strength and conditioning program is defined as “constantly varied, functional movement at high intensity” with the goal of improving overall fitness. The more variety and creativity that are placed into the workouts - the more your body will develop, grow stronger and avoid hitting a plateau. Variety in exercises, sets, reps, weight, rounds, etc. is the key to developing every component of physical fitness.
WHAT ARE “FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS?”
Functional movements are universal motor patterns that mimic human movement in every day life. Functional movements are squats, deadlifts, pushes, pulls, lunges or rotational movements. These movements will improve the quality of life of everyone who performs them and will teach people how to move their bodies more efficiently and effectively in all life’s endeavors. From elite athletes looking to improve their performance in a particular sport to a grandmother seeking to gain strength to pick up her grandkids – functional training is the answer to improving the overall health and well being of everyone, no matter what level of fitness.
DO YOU OFFER NUTRITIONAL COACHING?
Yes, at CrossFit Spencer we offer a variety of different packages to meet our member's needs. We work with people locally and all over the country by providing nutrition coaching, supplement guidance, customized meal and exercise plans to help them achieve their goals. Nutrition is the foundation of your training and the quickest way to achieve results. We do not believe in diets. Instead, we follow a structured eating plan. We will show you how to eat balanced meals that will quickly become a part of your lifestyle. We want you to be fit and healthy so you can perform your best while training with us. Every person’s body is different. Our eating programs are personalized to your needs, body composition, daily activity level and goals. We take all of this into consideration in providing a plan just for YOU. Check out our Nutrition page for more info.
