What Is Centex Fortius?
To understand what Centex Fortius IS, you must first know WHAT “Fortius” means and where it comes from. Fortius, from the Olympic Motto, “Citus, Altius, Fortius,” is Latin for “STRONGER”(Citius meaning Faster, and Altius meaning Higher.) So, obviously this is a strength focus class with a goal of getting you STRONGER! You can and absolutely will get stronger with our general CrossFit classes, but with EXTRA EMPHASIS in our Fortius class, we can make it happen a little faster, with a chance of higher results in that regard.
HOW will we make you stronger?
If you think about what the base and genius of CrossFit really is, the stuff that delivers the results, it’s INTENSITY. Intensity is the amount of WORK you are putting in, and the work equation is, Force multiplied by Distance divided by Time(force is the weight or load you are using, distance is the reps or how far you are going, and time is how long it takes you or the alloted amount of time ie, 20 minute AMRAP.) If you raise the force or distance, and/or lower the time, the work(or intensity) goes UP. What we are doing with this class, is biasing the FORCE portion of that equation, which if developed, one will have more potential to raise that intensity, and achieve higher results across the board(if you are stronger you are prepared to use a greater load, or you’ll be better prepared to move the lighter loads faster or longer.) Though we will STILL BE and DO CrossFit inside of this class, we will do longer bouts within each class of basic barbell strength movements(squats, dead lifts, presses, snatches, cleans, jerks, etc.,) place in more auxiliary work(isolated movements such as strict pull ups, handstand push ups, positional holds, etc.,) Strongman type movements(sled drags, tire flips, yoke carries, etc.,) etc.
So, if the FORCE portion of of the equation is your biggest weakness in CrossFit, your goal is to be stronger in general, or you just enjoy moving heavy objects, then THIS class is for you! Come join us in Centex Fortius!
