Schedule a free, no sweat, 15 minute consultation to see what the Hillcrest Athletic Club can do to help you achieve your health and fitness goals.
The Hillcrest Athletic Club focuses on instructor-led group fitness classes. We offer high intensity (CrossFit Hillcrest), moderate intensity (America’s Finest Boot Camp), and low intensity (YogaFlex), as well as specialty clinics and classes, including Barbell Club Olympic Lifting. Our programs are designed to increase your overall physical fitness by improving your endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy.
We also educate our athletes in healthy, sustainable eating habits – not diets. We recognize that looking good, feeling great, and extending your healthy lifespan involves exercise, but also requires developing smart and sustainable nutrition.
What We Offer
CrossFit classes consist of movements from a variety of modalities. They include Olympic lifts, gymnastics, plyometrics, powerlifting, kettlebell training, and much, much more. They may appear daunting, but the workouts can easily be tailored to all fitness levels by decreasing the weight, duration, or intensity of the movements. Workouts will vary in length from less than 5 minutes to more than 30 minutes, and all classes will include instruction and practice in various skills and strength exercises.
America’s Finest Boot Camp
Our Boot Camp classes are moderate intensity and don’t utilize barbells or gymnastics. The workouts will usually last between 20 and 30 minutes, and focus on body weight movements, kettlebells, medicine balls, and a variety of aerobic exercises (such as running, rope jumping, or rowing). There is some overlap between Boot Camp and CrossFit movements, so this can be a good introduction if you think jumping right into CrossFit classes might be too much for you.
Yoga is a powerful mobility tool, and is extremely useful at preventing athletic injuries. However, most folks don’t have the time to devote to the traditional hour and a half long yoga class, especially if they’re performing high or moderate intensity training as well. Enter YogaFlex, short duration (20-25 minute) yoga-focused mobility classes designed to give you a structured stretch after a hard workout.
Bent Iron Barbell Club
CrossFit has helped increase the worldwide interest in Olympic lifting, elevating it from a niche sport to a rapidly-growing phenomenon. If you’ve never experienced the sublime beauty of a perfectly executed snatch or clean and jerk, we can help you get there! Our Barbell Club is open to experienced CrossFitters or Olympic Lifters; classes last an hour to an hour and a half (see our schedule page for details) and focus on incremental improvements to your technique.
Nutrition and Weight Loss
Most folks don’t realize that looking good in your jeans is 20% sweat and 80% what you put in your mouth. Gyms that only offer you a workout aren’t doing you any favors. Included in our membership are a variety of nutritional challenges, weight loss clinics, and daily information you can use to make smart, healthy, and delicious food choices. If your goal is weight loss, your first stop should be Hillcrest Athletic Club.
We recognize that group classes aren’t for everyone. Some folks need a more personal touch in a one-on-one setting. From tailored nutrition plans to workout schedules that help you focus on developing your specific strengths, our personal trainers will help you achieve your health and fitness goals – quickly and efficiently.
