WC GPP (general physical preparedness)
Our unique brand of CrossFit
Everything we do is grounded in science. Our fitness program can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance. From general fitness to sport-specific training, there is no better program out there.
WHAT WE DO AND WHY IT'S FOR YOU
Our program drives unparalleled results. This means CrossFit actually makes people fit, and we make them fitter faster and more safely than any program out there. Our results are universal, predictable, and repeatable. Our methodology works for everyone, can be scaled for anyone, and continues to work long term. It’s not magic, it’s just what happens when you put in the work — results follow. And once you get a taste, you want more of it. It’s how CrossFit revolutionized an industry, and changed millions of lives — and will change many more.
THE BEST WAY TO BE YOUR BEST
Our brand of CrossFit workouts are challenging but worth the effort. And your effort is measurable and you’re going to share your results with visible scores on the whiteboard. This fosters accountability and courage. And because CrossFit workouts can be scaled for anyone — meaning we adjust our workouts by degree, not kind — everyone knows the challenge you’ve faced and you're respected and welcomed for your effort no matter who you are or where you land on the whiteboard. These are key ingredients that build genuine camaraderie.
CrossFit has some famous benchmark workouts, like Fran and Murph, that we repeat on occasion to see how our fitness has improved. But most of the time, you’ll see new workouts programmed every day: workouts with different movements, rep schemes, loads, and time domains. Our programming strategically varies the workout stimulus so you’re prepared for any and all physical tasks — and you’ll never get bored.
Have you ever picked something up off the floor? Sat down in a chair and stood up again? Placed items up on a shelf? If so, you’ve performed deadlifts, squats, and shoulder presses. At Windy City SC, we train these types of movements because they are the movements life demands — whether we practice them or not. They are essential to independent living. And when we use these movements to move large loads over long distances, quickly, we develop power, which in turn develops tremendous strength and body control.
No matter what you’re looking for from your workouts — feeling better, looking better, sleeping better, being stronger — intensity is the most effective way to get you there. At Windy City SC, we focus first on moving well with consistency, and then we work on increasing intensity. But a workout that’s intense for one person may not be for another. Intensity is relative, which means the goal is to work hard within the limits of your own physical and psychological capacity, because that’s where the results are. If you’re working hard, chances are you’re getting fitter.
