WHAT WE DO
What is Crossfit?
Verdant CrossFit, first and foremost, is a CrossFit gym! At Verdant CrossFit, we run group based fitness classes that are instructed by a qualified instructor. These classes run almost every hour of the day and each class has a specific warm-up, a strength element, and then a metabolic conditioning block.
Warm-Ups are often overlooked or rushed through by a lot of gyms, but here at Verdant, we spend a lot of time developing warm ups that are specific to the movements that we practicing that day. Not only are our warm-ups designed to prepare you for your class, we also mix functional body-building and core strength each day.
Our Strength Elements are a major part of our programming. That’s because we run specific strength cycles in our regular CrossFit classes! Basically, you’ll have 3-12 weeks blocks of time where you’ll be moving towards a new goal of some new maximum lift or movement.
In addition to putting our strength elements into a structured curriculum you’ll see patterns in our Metabolic Conditioning pieces every few weeks as well. You’ll always know that you’re programming is thought-out well in advance.
WHO WE ARE
At Verdant CrossFit we have built an amazing community that has withstood the test of time and tribulation. We have had MANY memorable community events and several annual events including an annual “cornhole” tournament, a monthly community event or a themed “happy hour” WoD. We have put on multiple movie nights, several dance parties, Halloween parties, and at the end of each year we rent out some rad space in downtown Boise and throw a big party.
We have produced a team that has been to the CrossFit Games West Regionals three times in a row (2015, 2016, 2017) and been to the ESPN televised CrossFit Games in 2015. We have had a Verdant Softball Team, the V-Cards, three years running and we have had a women’s volleyball team for two years as well. Verdant has done several major fundraisers for different charities over the past three years and we have supported many of our members who are going through difficult times or through first time pregnancy!
WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT
Our Owner and Leader, Basile, taught high school for a number of years and has earned his first master’s degree is in Curriculum and Education. After teaching in Russia and then at the University of Southern California for three years, where he earned his second graduate degree, he has accrued over 10 years of teaching experience.
Our programming reflects his teaching experience and the care given to the development of our coaches demonstrates this as well. Basile treats the programming with the same care, precision and forethought that he used while teaching high school and at the universities. We have a truly indescribable energy at the gym as well as a community that provides a second home and an awesome group of friends for all newcomers.
