What is CrossFit?
What does that mean?
Doing intense workouts that are forever changing in both duration and type, and never practicing something enough to specialize in it. Our training is based on functional human movements like standing, sitting, throwing, lifting, pushing, pulling, climbing and jumping. Practicing these movements at high intensity levels is key to increasing quality of life and General Physical Preparedness (GPP). Having a higher level of GPP means that your scope of physical ability in all aspects of life is widened.
World-Class Fitness in 100 Words: Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. ~Greg Glassman
What will I get out of CrossFit?
The basics that you will achieve from training are improvements in: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. These 10 areas of ability comprise the CrossFit definition of fitness. Importantly, CrossFit will also increase your work capacity (the amount of work you're able to complete in a given time). This means that you'll be able to participate in a variety of increasingly physically-demanding tasks, both inside and outside the gym.
