Group CrossFit Programs
At CrossFit Coeur d’Alene, we recognize that personal fitness goals vary with every athlete that trusts us with their training- because of this, we are proud to be the only CrossFit gym in the area that offers two distinct workout options for our members: The Honeybadgers, and the Skunkworks.
Our most popular training option, The Honeybadger program is designed for the everyday athlete that just wants to feel good and pursue long term health: goals include general fitness, body composition, joint health, and preparation for an active lifestyle. Honeybadgers get sweaty every day, and have a blast doing it- with less focus on heavy weights and advanced CrossFit movements, every athlete who walks through the doors of CFCDA can get a challenging, fun workout any day of the week.
CrossFit is broad, general, inclusive fitness- and those who follow our Skunkworks programming will become proficient at the Sport of Fitness: weightlifting, gymnastics, percentage work, and specific training cycles all play a large part of the Skunkworks programming. Competitive athletes, and those that simply love barbells and challenging movements, thrive on our mix of lifting, gymnastics, old-school strength, and traditional CrossFit workouts.
The Heart and Barbell Club
The Heart and Barbell Club is our USA Weightlifting club. The class meets once per week on Saturday mornings to focus on the finer details of the snatch and clean and jerk. We also travel as a team to USAW meets at the local and national level. Team Heart and Barbell consists of brand new lifters, several National level lifters, and one World level lifter… all skills are welcome! Specific weightlifting programs, as well as personal training, are also available. Please contact us for more info.
While our Group CrossFit classes are designed to achieve the fitness goals of our varied community, nothing beats training for specific goals like personal training.
- You’ll find the greatest success with personal training if you’re needs include:
- Extra accountability
- You are referred by a physician, physical therapist or chiropractor
- You have specific performance goals (triathlon, etc.)
- You have significant health or orthopedic issues
Your coach will tailor workouts specific for your fitness level and goals, and progress you at the proper pace. If you’re interested in personal training, please contact us for more info.
CrossFit Kids & Teens
CrossFit Kids introduces the CrossFit method to children ages 3-18. Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translates to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.
CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school varsity wrestlers differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids. If you have a kid that would like to try CrossFit, please contact us for more info.
