WHAT IS CROSSFIT?

WHAT IS CROSSFIT?

Simple question, many different answers. We’ll start with the short (and official) answer:

CrossFit is a program of constantly varied, functional movements done at high intensity which leads to health and fitness.

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

Constantly Varied – You won’t get bored and your body won’t adapt. Lots of variation = lots of change. Be prepared for anything.

Functional Movements – Think Pulling or Pushing. Picking up a bag of groceries and carrying them all up 3 flights of stairs. We focus on the movements that the human body was built for and that you use everyday.

High Intensity – This is a matter of physics not opinion. It is about doing as much work as possible as quick as you can. What qualifies as “intense” is different for each person. Intensity is where the magic happens and according to the video below it will let you throw babies high in the air.

Intensity is NOT about:

  • Sacrificing form for speed
  • Yelling or grunting
  • Impressing everyone around you
