WHAT IS CROSS TRAINING?

Cross training is an exercise regimen that utilizes multiple modes of training to develop a specific component of fitness or overall fitness. The benefits are well documented, numerous and include:

❱ Lower injury risk
❱ Increased body fat loss
❱ Greater total fitness

Change it up! Try performing new exercises or varying your current exercise routine. One of the simplest ways to incorporate cross training is to alternate activities like jogging one day, weight training the next, and cycle class on the third day. Or you can alternate activities during a single workout session such as walking on the treadmill for 10 minutes, exercising on a rower the next 10 minutes, and cycling on the bike for the final 10 minutes. Fortunately, The Epic will have an enormous amount of choices for you to incorporate into your cross training routine including cardio and strength training equipment, indoor and outdoor functional training equipment, an indoor track and an adventure track, basketball, volleyball, pickleball, futsal, in-water exercise equipment, lap lanes and resistance vortex, lakeside boardwalk, trails and more! We’ve got you covered.

CROSSFIT

You can do CrossFit. Yes, you. In fact, it was made for you. Greg Glassman, founder and CEO, defines CrossFit as “constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing, and more. These are the core movements of life.” First time participants say it is the hardest workout they have ever done. CrossFitters say it has led them to the greatest fitness gains but that the real magic is in the community. Workouts are scaled to fit the needs of the novice and the professional alike. Join us as we embark on an Epic fitness journey that combines fitness with competition, camaraderie, and fun!
