    We Develop Athletes

    Are you or your children looking to take their fitness to the next level? At CrossFit Lake Zurich, we have developed a championship pedigree that extended to multiple sports and various events. Two of our most recent successful athletes, Wesley Annan and Faith Ekakitie, just squared off in the Rose Bowl on January 1st, 2016. Our winning formula has been forged over the past 11 years of professional, hands-on training experience working alongside the best health and fitness practitioners in the area. Since we program for the entire life-cycle of the athlete, we are better able to progress the athlete to heighten their performance while reducing injuries. To experience the difference for yourself, contact us for a complimentary functional movement assessment and screening today!

  • Happy Mobility Monday!

    Happy Mobility Monday!

    Here at CrossFit Lake Zurich, we are creating a tradition of excellence in fitness. Our continuum starts with mobility, then progresses to stability, movement competency, strength/skill and then intensity. This is just one ingredient in the "special sauce" that sets us apart.

    At the start of every week, we focus on getting back to zero by resetting those tight muscle groups and restricted ranges of motion. If you spend some time early in the week addressing your problem areas, the rest of the week will be a lot more enjoyable.

    Spend 10 minutes today, apart from your training to address your problem areas. My suggestion would be to start at your feet/ankles. In my clinical experience, 9/10 people suffer dysfunction at the foot/ankle that in turn cause a host of problems up the chain. If you have not familiarized yourself with K-Star and Mobility WOD by now, click the video below to get to know the top cat in this field.
