Here at Luminary we are leading the way towards a new paradigm of fitness in Grand Rapids. The training style at CrossFit Luminary is a combination of what Strength & Conditioning used to be and what we believe the future of athletic training should be. We are the first and only CrossFit Affiliate in West Michigan to combine these classically proven practices with CrossFit and modern biomechanical application. We are honored to provide our clients with challenging, yet real world applicable workouts and mobility solutions. One membership plan provides our members access to our unique style of CrossFit along with our own Original Strength & Conditioning Program all in one state of the art facility.
Beginner's Course - If you are new to serious athletic strength and conditioning, interested in joining our CrossFit Program, or just in need of refreshing your skills then the Beginner's Strength & Conditioning Course was made for you. Consisting of five consecutive instruction focused training days, athletes will be exposed to foundational barbell and gymnastic movements in this intense yet instruction oriented course. The course begins fresh every Monday and is completed on Friday. Each class session builds upon the previous day's training in a linear progression so new athletes may begin to understand the major barbell and gymnastics. This course is a prerequisite for CrossFit or Strength & Conditioning for new athletes.
Strength & Conditioning Program -Using the latest methods in traditional strength & conditioning methodology this program is periodized, undulated daily, and structured around the major strength building compound barbell movements. This is combined with hypertrophic accessory work and relatively low impact conditioning. The very existence of muscle burns more fat and calories than doing endurance monocyclic cardio due to raising the body’s resting metabolic rate. This functional program is a systematic and slightly lower velocity approach to burning fat and building the lean muscle look that everyone wants. Completion of the beginner’s course is required prior to participation.
CrossFit General Program - Upon completion of the Beginner’s Strength & Conditioning Course athletes may participate in the CrossFit Program. This program is carefully designed to provide maximum stimulation while remaining suitable for everyday participation by a broad range of athletic abilities. Using a wide array of exercises, the CrossFit program consists of constantly varied daily workouts that will challenge athletes and stimulate adaptation to the various muscle groups and metabolic pathways in a functional capacity that can be applied to real life outside the gym. Whether you are training for a triathlon, mixed-martial arts bout, or just want to stay one step ahead of your kids, the CrossFit Program will provide real world strength and conditioning benefits that will impact your life in ways you never thought possible.
Private Training - Whether you're new to training, struggling with a particular skill or mobility limitation, or you simply prefer an individualized training experience, working privately with one of our knowledgeable coaches will give you an incomparable edge in your athletic development. Don't subject yourself to unnecessary risk by watching YouTube videos and trying to figure it out alone.
Open Gym - As part of the Unlimited Membership Package, athletes will be granted access to the gym and equipment to use for their individual interests during scheduled open gym hours. Unlimited members enjoy the ability to practice specific skills, conduct their own soft tissue maintenance and stretching, or sweat through an additional or Advanced Competitions Program Workout.
