What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is characterized by Constantly Varied, Functional Movements performed at High Intensity in a Community setting. CrossFit is fun, it is a Sport, each day is a new game to be played! It is these 5 principles that make CrossFit the most effective and most fun training methodology you will ever experience.
Not only is repetition in training boring, it is ineffective. You must constantly challenge your body in new ways. Cardio Vascular Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Speed, Power, Agility, Balance, Accuracy, Coordination, you want it all! And you want to have fun getting it!
Functional Movements are movements that you are required to do in your everyday life whether you train them or not, they are movements that predate gyms and trainers. Whenever you pick something up off the floor you are doing a deadlift, each time you sit in your chair you are doing a squat. Lose your capacity to operate through a functional range of movement and you lose your ability to live independently. Protect yourself from injury, recapture or retain your functional independence and become excellent at life!
Intensity is the holy grail of health and fitness stimulating a neuro endocrine response that not only yields phenomenal fitness results and sculpts gorgeous bodies, it is also critical for your health and longevity.
You will discover that community is the anchoring principle underlying CrossFit’s effectiveness. You will love CrossFitting not only for the results but for the connections you will make. Train with your friends and family. You will make your best friends here and they will become part of your life both inside and outside of the gym. At CrossFit you never work out alone.
“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.” – George Bernard Shaw
