CrossFit Baobab About Us
CrossFit Baobab is more than another gym to go to to squeeze in a workout. CrossFit Baobab is a place to learn and grow – to improve your body, your mind, AND your life. It’s is a place to become knowledgeable in the mechanics, strengths, limitations, and untapped possibilities of your body. It’s a place to participate with community – other people also engaged in this practice. At CrossFit Baobab, we want you to use your brain as well as your muscles – to learn, to challenge yourself, to try new things you never thought possible, to practice new skills that require you to be focused and present. We teach you how to move your body with proper mechanics, to get strong and fast, to increase your power output, to increase your endurance and stamina, to get flexible, stable, and balanced, and to move with grace and agility. We do this so that when you’re NOT with us, you can truly just have fun in every aspect of your life.
Our Community is a thriving, living body, consisting of active members and coaches who are healthy, strong, and vital. We are committed to life within the context of health and fitness. Our CFB community has great power. Our students are extremely diverse in their experience, conditioning, and lives. We are a down-to-earth community that does extraordinary things in and out of the gym on a daily basis. Their level of fitness only enhances this.
Our Coaching Staff has it’s foundation in community – all of our coaches have started here as CrossFit Baobab students. For us, it’s not enough to just be ‘CrossFit certified’ (although this is a prerequisite). To ensure we continue to serve the unique needs our community with the highest levels of integrity, instruction and communication, we have our own CrossFit Baobab Instructor Development and Mentoring Program. All of our coaches have come through this program so that you know that when you step foot into a class or have a private training session, you are getting the highest quality of instruction available.
We believe that fitness is a state of mind, a way of being. It shows up in the way you talk, walk, sleep, eat, work, play, relax, and carry yourself. It is the physical embodiment of the character traits of honor, courage, confidence, discipline, integrity, responsibility, dedication, and joy. It is also instrumental in reducing the immediate and cumulative effects of stress and anxiety. We’ve found that the fitter a person is, the more he/she is physically able to do the things that bring joy and fun to life – everything from feeling strong, confident and energetic through your normal work day, running around with your kids, being physically active and playing sports, to traveling to remote corners of the earth. Being physically fit is inspiring, feels good,and enriches your life. It adds both years to your life, and life to your years! People who are fit seem to have a clearer, more optimistic view of life. For us, the bottom line is this:
Fitness allows you to live your best life ever!!!
