CrossFit is a fitness and conditioning program developed through many years of watching, working with, and coaching all types of people – from those considered “normal and average”, to top athletes. The theory – take what worked best from the sports and movements that create the most versatile athletes (gymnastics and weightlifting), and throw the rest out. Actually, the system really created itself – if a workout or an exercise proved functional and got great results (ie- challenged you to the bone), it stayed in the system. If not, well, you got the picture. CrossFit is what remains – bar none, the most effective fitness and conditioning system in the world!
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
In implementation, CrossFit is, quite simply, a sport—the “sport of fitness.” We’ve learned that harnessing the natural camaraderie, competition, and fun of sport or game yields an intensity that cannot be matched by other means.
CrossFit is by design broad, general and inclusive. Its specialty is in not specializing, and its workouts elicit a maximal neuro-endocrine response from your body by taxing your body to its core with variety, intensity, and multiple joint, full body, functional movements.
Why CrossFit? Results. Period.
