WHAT IS CROSSFIT?

FORGING ELITE FITNESS

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program designed to help people gain a broad and general fitness. CrossFit programming concentrates on constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity to achieve overall physical fitness, preparing you for any physical challenge. CrossFit contends that a healthy, fit person requires proficiency in each of the ten general physical fitness skills: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance, coordination, and accuracy.

CrossFit applies a mix of aerobic exercise, gymnastics (body weight exercises), and Olympic weight lifting. Workouts are typically short—30 minutes or less—and intense, demanding all-out physical exertion. We combine movements such as sprinting, rowing, jumping rope, climbing rope, flipping tires, weightlifting, carrying heavy objects, and many bodyweight exercises; equipment used includes barbells, dumbbells, gymnastics rings, pull-up bars, kettlebells, medicine balls, and boxes for box jumps. These elements are mixed in numerous combinations to form prescribed “Workouts of the Day” or “WODs”. Our hour-long classes typically include a warm-up, a skill development segment, the high-intensity WOD, and a period of individual or group stretching. Performance on each WOD is often scored and/or ranked to encourage the competition among members and to track individual progress. CrossFit affiliates also offer additional classes, such as Olympic weightlifting, mobility, endurance, yoga, etc., which are not centered around the daily WOD. The aim of CrossFit is to physically prepare individuals for whatever life might throw at them. It is not about following a particular routine, but about constantly varying workouts.

CrossFit is currently used in over 10,000 affiliated CrossFit gyms worldwide and by many fire departments, law enforcement agencies, military organizations, and world-class professional athletes!
