The Legends program is focused on helping you gain and maintain mobility, functionality, strength, and health in your day to day life while adding a bit of fun, community, stamina, and increased energy.
We focus on very specific strength and conditioning workouts to improve quality of life and health of our 55+ community or those that may be recovering from and injury or surgery and need to gradually increase their strength and performance.
You will learn proper movement in a very safe environment where we meet you at the level where you are starting. The coaches take into account and manage around injuries, any short term nagging problems, or mobility limitations which we will also help you try to improve.
People of all ages and abilities care about their health, fitness, and quality of life and we are here to help. Workouts are different every day. Class is approximately 50-60 minutes and you will learn how to safely execute all movements under the direction and supervision of a coach. We do not add weight until the coach understands your ability to do each movement.
Class starts with a structured warm up and stretching to prepare the body. You will then do very specific strength work that will improve your day to day movement and life and finish with conditioning to improve your lungs and heart. Every movement and workout can be scaled to your abilities and we will progressively improve your strength, mobility, and intensity as we see how your body and mind react.
You will see a variety of movements like squatting (you will be taught proper form), rowing, kettlebell work, shoulder stabilizing movements, and focus a lot on core. We do use barbells in some circumstances but do not do Olympic lifts. Everything can be modified to be performed with no weight or easily changed to use lighter dumbbells or kettlebells.
The ultimate goal of every class is to improve your ability to function in day to day life and reduce risk of injury while in a safe and FUN environment.
Our current members have claimed some of the following results: ability to get up and down stairs and off chairs easier, more stamina, increased energy, weight-loss, ability to play with children/grandchildren longer, improved blood tests, and improved ability to handle what life throws at them. Our goal is to make YOU as healthy as YOU can be. By building and maintaining muscle mass and working your heart and lungs you are helping prepare your body for all that life throws at you. You will be able to enjoy life more and reduce injury and disease risk.
We have a system that will help you track your results and improvements so you can see your strength and cardiovascular improvements. If you are under the care of a doctor make sure you talk with your doctor on any limitations and communicate with your coach on any limitations.
Classes are Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at 11:45 AM. If demand for additional classes increases, we will evaluate adding more. We hope this happens!
Cost is $125/month for unlimited classes

Interested in getting the benefits of functional movement and resistance training without the barbell work? Try Swing Fit!
Swing Fit offers a unique and FUN way to get into resistance training and conditioning. It's constantly varied functional movement with a kettlebell focus.
Kettlebells are some of the most versatile fitness tools available. In addition to functional movements such as deadlifts and presses, kettlebells offer unique ways to do unilateral work, develop grip and core strength, and improve metabolic conditioning.
Each Swing Fit class begins with a group warm up, kettlebell skill or strength instruction, a workout, and then mobility and cool down.
Jenn Casey and Lisa Frank are the Swing Fit trainers, and each has years of experience working with kettlebells. They are also competitive Kettlebell Sport athletes and founders of Georgia Kettlebell Sport.
Cost is $119 for unlimited monthly classes, $15 for drop-ins

Functional Movement Screening
We want all of our CrossFit Kennesaw members to move both efficiently and safely. One way to ensure that you are training with good movement patterns is to get the Functional Movement Screen (FMS).
FMS was developed in the late 90s by physical therapist Gray Cook, and has been shown to be an effective way to understand which movement patterns might need some improvement, with the goal of preventing injuries before they happen. For more information about FMS, you can check out their website here.
CFK Coach Jenn Casey is FMS Level 1 Certified (and has completed all current requirements in Level 2), and performs the screen and can program correctives to help you improve your score.
The FMS takes about 20 minutes of your time and can be done here at the gym. No special preparation is necessary, and you will be talked through all the steps. After the assessment, you will receive your FMS score, with some suggestions for corrective exercises to do at home or in the gym to help improve any trouble areas (such as asymmetries or movement deficiencies).
The basic screen plus initial corrective suggestions is $20, and it's recommended that you get screened at least twice a year, when returning from an injury, or when returning to CrossFit Kennesaw after a significant break from activity.
If you are interested in something more long-term and focused, talk to Jenn about a correctives package, which would be several individual sessions (about 30 minutes long) to go over different exercises to work on at home, and before and after the WOD. This includes a rescreening in the last session to see how you've improved.
The FMS has been proven to improve movement patterns and help you move well, move often, and prevent injury. Email Jenn today at email@example.com about setting up an appointment for screening!
Are you ready to finally see lasting results by managing your health and fitness? Are you ready to finally understand that it’s not JUST about calories in and calories out? Would you like to understand what types of foods give you energy, help you recover, and can improve your performance?
Then you are ready for Health Coaching. If you are looking for the 21-day fix to lose 15-20 pounds quickly and feel deprived and hungry the entire time then you are not ready for health coaching. But if you struggle to lose weight or always lose energy halfway through your workout or just do not understand why your weight fluctuates so much and you want to finally focus on eating the RIGHT things and want lasting results then YOU ARE READY for Health Coaching.
Through our health coaching program we will help you learn long term habits of healthy eating that give provide you the education to make healthy choices and decisions for the long term.
Over 70% of people fail when making a commitment to be healthy. Mostly because they are not specific about their goals and they are doing it alone. Let us walk with you down the path of helping you define your goals and understand how to eat for performance, health, and good body composition.
You will focus on a 3-pronged approach to health: 1. Exercise. You likely already have the exercise part down with CrossFit Kennesaw. If not, we will help you nail down what is right for you when it comes to exercise. 2. Rest and Recovery. This is a critical but often overlooked component of health. Proper nutrition helps you here but you also needs stress management tools, hydration, and focus on sleep and days off from the gym which we can also be your guide on some useful tools for managing rest/recovery. 3. Nutrition. We have several options below to assist where you need help the most.
