RIV Athletics Class Types

WE OFFER EIGHT DISTINCT CLASSES, PLUS OPEN GYM, WITH OVER 90 CLASSES A WEEK!

If you are a drop-in to a CrossFit WOD, you must have an email sent to info@rivathletics.com from your box stating that you have been trained on the fundamental movements (squat, snatch, clean, jerk, etc.) of CrossFit.

CrossFit WOD

CrossFit (WOD) is an ideal class for anyone who wants to experience a high intensity, whole body, muscular endurance workout! Our experienced team of coaches design workouts around simple and functional movements that strengthens and enhances your body. The universal scalability of CrossFit means that anyone, at any skill level, can jump into a class at any time and pick up the movements, the concepts, and the intensity level.

In order to begin CrossFit classes, it is required to take our Elements series.  Each new member goes through our Elements course, which is a small class setting for brand new athletes. You will learn the fundamental movements, the proper way to move, and get personalized attention from a coach. It’s a chance for us to see where you are beginning and to better coach you once you are in a CrossFit class. 

Sample Workout:

Strength/Skill:

Every 90 seconds for 6 Rounds:

1 Power Clean + 1 Hang Clean + 1 Jerk (weightlifting)

WOD:
