The Man Behind the Crossfit Madness

The Man Behind the Crossfit Madness

It’s no secret that CrossFit can present challenging workouts to its members. But what most do not know is that the programming element that goes into those workouts is far more complex than just what you see before you on the whiteboard.

This is what you will learn when you ask head programmer and owner of Down Home CrossFit Jake Clough to explain how he develops his programs at the gym.

Each workout, strength cycle and accessory movement is part of a larger picture that he has been cultivating for more than 11 years.

One of the reasons the members at Down Home see such great results in all areas is Jake’s vision. With a background in exercise science, numerous certifications, and over 100,000 workouts written, the proof is in the results.

But it’s not just about understanding the science, it’s about knowing your members. Great workouts do not matter if they don’t meet people right where they are. A fact Jake knows well.

Designing workouts for a mass group—while keeping it challenging for all, safe for beginners, and effective for everyone—isn’t an easy task. However, if you ask anyone at Down Home, they will tell you this is exactly what they get!
