What is CrossFit?
CrossFit training incorporates the best practices of all sports and training. CrossFit design its workout of the day to integrate the ten generally accepted physical skills; Cardio-respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. We constantly vary the exercises, sets, reps, durations and intensity to provide the maximum stimulus for our clientele. Our people keep getting results because they never plateau.
Our training includes, running, jumping, Olympic lifting, Kettlebells, complex conditioning, agility drills, Plyometrics, rowing and medicine balls.
Our movements are functional. Movements based on the natural movements of human begins. We squat, pick things up from the ground, lift them to our shoulders and place them overhead. Our training is functional in that it teaches coordination -- The ability to move in sequence from core to extremity. Another way of thinking about this is the large muscle groups to small, primary movers to support.
Our training is intense. How do you measure intensity? Intensity is in part, the capacity to do work. The more work the better. Work is a function of weight moved, how far and in what time. At the core, power is the measure of intensity we use: The more power, the better.
Our training develops skill, it requires people who want to work hard. Our training is elite in the sense that few people are willing to work as hard as we do.
Anyone can do the training we do, if they have the character to work as hard as our people do.
The real question is: do you?
