WHAT IS CROSSFIT

CrossFit delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. CrossFit’s specialty is not specializing. Daily life, like many sports and professions, and even combat requires broad levels of fitness. CrossFit’s program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. You do NOT need to be ‘in-shape’ to begin CrossFit.

CrossFit workouts are comprised of functional movements – we squat, jump, run, throw and lift – and are constantly varied (workouts change every day) and are executed at high intensity. You’ll work hard, though not long, and you’ll achieve a level of fitness you never thought possible – no matter your fitness experience or athletic background. CrossFit works for everybody! Finally, and perhaps most importantly, CrossFit is an amazing community of like-minded, positive people with a common goal: to live a healthier more fit life. And, it is the CrossFit community that will keep you focused on your goals, working harder than thought you could and coming back when you want to quit.

The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general, and inclusive fitness. We have sought to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency—not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, we asked what physical skills and adaptations would most universally lend themselves to performance advantage. Capacity culled from the intersection of all sports demands would quite logically lend itself well to all sport. In sum, our specialty is not specializing.

CrossFit focuses on all ten elements of optimal physical fitness:

  1. Cardio / Respiratory Endurance
  2. Stamina
  3. Strength
  4. Flexibility
  5. Power
  6. Speed
  7. Coordination
  8. Agility
  9. Balance
  10. Accuracy
