CrossFit New Canaan with Tim Burke is scaleable to all abilities: beginner to advanced, women and men/young and old. All are welcome and first timers are encouraged to come and will be closely assisted. CrossFit is a core to extremity, full bodied functional movement program. Functional movements are used in everyday life – movements we already do.

CrossFit tends to take movements from many different areas of fitness. All kinds of body weight movements are incorporated such as pushups, pullups, squats, lunges, situps, box jumps, running, rowing and jumping rope. Kettlebells and dumbbells are used to perform more technical weighted movements or to scale up basic movements like squatting and lunging. CrossFit also uses barbell moves as power lifting and Olympic lifts play a huge role in our strength gains. Different gymnastic patterns like handstand holds and other technical ring work like forward and reverse levers are sometimes practiced during a workout. Anything and everything that is functional in fitness, like squatting, pushing and pulling, is all part of CrossFit.


Tim Burke

CrossFit Coach

Spending his whole life as an athlete and playing sports through high school and college left Tim with a competitive attitude. Seeking out a challenging, goal setting workout regimen, brought him to CrossFit, and he was immediately hooked. This type of workout required practicing technical moves as well as strength, athleticism, agility, and coordination which only enhanced Tim’s excitement for the workouts and lead him to leaving his former occupation and becoming a CrossFit coach. Tim thinks being able to teach, coach and motivate people to better themselves both mentally and physically is an honor. CrossFit is a community driven program encouraging members to motivate those around them, creating a family atmosphere with positive competition. Everyone is welcome no matter their athletic ability. Seeing a smile on members’ faces when they get their first pullup or pull a heavy deadlift is what makes it all worth it. Tim appreciates knowing he’s helped people achieve their goals!
