Classes

CrossFit strength skill conditioning


Our CrossFit classes are designed to fit all athletes, no matter their experience level. We believe that any workout can be adjusted to fit your unique needs. Hour long classes include skill practice, strength work and fast-paced metabolic conditioning. Classes are limited to 12 athletes at a time to maximize your contact with our experienced coaches.

Body Adapt wellness and fitness


Body Adapt is our 6-week, 3x per week, beginner athlete program. In Sunday evening Nutrition class with Lucia Hawley, NTP, you will complete a short nutrition challenge and learn about eating well for your body. Tuesday and Thursday fitness classes teach you the foundations of strength and conditioning in a fun and welcoming environment. Whatever your goals and needs, our coaches will accommodate you!

Mobility mobility for athletes


Our Mobility program combines the joy and connection of a yin yoga practice with the practicality of mobility for athletes. We focus on creating long-lasting change in the body through holding positions that alter the fascia and improve positioning. Solcana believes that high-level strength and skill can only be achieved through a combination of stability and flexibility, and our mobility program is proof.

Endurance conditioning through fun


Endurance focuses on conditioning, agility, speed and precision to help you improve your ability to excel in endurance sports, such as running, rowing, rugby, soccer, etc. Classes are designed around tempo, speed and long-duration workouts that involve weighted elements, but eliminate the complicated barbell movements you find in CrossFit. Endurance is for anyone, whether you’re a seasoned marathon runner, or you’ve never even run a 5K. Everything we do in Endurance is scalable to each individual’s ability.

Kids fitness for kids


Solca-Tots is a fun fitness program for ages 3-5. Kids learn to tumble, make shapes, play games, move like animals, and burn off some energy while they practice coordination, large motor skills, and balance.

Athena League is our group class for ages 6-12. Kids practice functional movements, gymnastics skills, and conditioning in an encouraging and non-competitive environment. Scaling is always provided so that everyone can participate fully!

We play games with friends while promoting body positivity and a lifelong love of fitness. All kids classes take place on Saturday mornings.
