Question: “Why do we max out on Monday and Friday’s?”

Answer: The idea behind maxing regularly, known as the max effort method is the greatest approach to strength training in order to improve absolute strength. Absolute strength is the thing that keeps you “strong”. And strong is a relative term. What I mean is that for the world's strongest man, his idea of...continue reading


Online Training Platform

Online Training Platform

We have received a lot of communication(emails, texts, calls) letting us know that they wanted to know more details about the online coaching platform and how Oregon CrossFit operates it. I will lay everything out here so that we can hopefully answer all questions.

We have three levels of service for the online training;

Base Online training, Core Online Training, and Max Online training.

Base Online Training

Base online training is programming delivered to you either by email, text daily, or a google drive document.

If you train 3x a week (or 12x a month) then you will get 12 workouts, a set time to do...continue reading

What Kaylie has to say about the Oregon CrossFit Sports Performance Program:

"I first started training with Sean in high school, with his help I was able to not only reach but go above and beyond my own athletic expectations and goals. It is a fun and competitive atmosphere where Sean analyzed our goals outside of the gym and put together an individualized workout which allowed me faster times on the track and better mobility on the soccer field. Additionally, Sean worked to give us a strong base in order to help us avoid common injuries that I have seen far too many teammates suffer through. I also believe that my transition from high school athletics...continue reading

Personal Training and Programming

Personal Training and Programming

At Oregon CrossFit we have successfully had a personal training program going for 10+ years. Working with those who needed or wanted more coaching, accelerated results and specialized programming tailored to help them reach their goals. The personal training coupled with Inbody scans to monitor and track progress allowed us to objectively track and see progress. For those who weren’t necessarily worried about body composition but struggled to identify goals the Inbody works well to put a number on progress.

As the at home training options have continued to expand it seems like the number of programming requests that we have received has increased as well. Some people are former members who moved away that would like to continue to follow...continue reading


Staying Healthy

Staying Healthy

With the recent expansion of the Coronavirus, is it important to address the steps that we take on a daily basis here at Oregon CrossFit for the health of our members. These are the steps that we do day in and day out, but as some have asked here is a quick run down:

  2. The gym gets professionally cleaned weekly, including the gym floor(2x weekly) to ensure that it is a safe and clean environment. We...continue reading
