Dowd YMCA CROSSFIT

Welcome to Dowd Y CrossFit. We offer high-level coaching and comprehensive programming with the most versatile amenities in the Charlotte metro area. 

CrossFit is a training program structured around ten components of fitness: strength training, stamina, endurance, accuracy, power, agility, balance, speed, coordination and flexibility applied to challenging Workouts of the Day (WODs). CrossFit involves constantly varied functional training circuits performed at high intensity. All WODs can be modified and are appropriate for all fitness levels. 

CrossFit workouts are distinctive in their focus on maximizing neuroendocrine response, developing power and cross-training with multiple training modalities as well as constant training and practice with functional exercises. Our workout programs involve high-intensity interval training (HIIT workouts) that increases your metabolic rate, making it the best cardio workout for weight loss.
