“What is CrossFit?”

CrossFit, an exercise concept by former gymnast Greg Glassman, was originally developed as an exercise program combining training techniques from various sports that could benefit everyone. This multi-faceted fitness program, by scaling the intensity and skill level of each workout, has universal appeal and application; it is ideal for people of all ages and experience levels.

CrossFit is designed to improve fitness in ten areas:

Cardio/Respiratory Endurance
Stamina
Strength
Flexibility
Power
Speed
Coordination
Agility
Balance
Accuracy

The CrossFit program incorporates full body motions and specific body weight exercises including but not limited to: gymnastic movements, jumping, climbing, Russian kettlebell training, rowing, and more randomly combined movements at various intensities with short rest periods to achieve optimal results.
Because each CrossFit workout will be constantly changing and consistently challenging, there is little room for your body to plateau, your results to stagnate, and for your routine to bore you.

The CrossFit training program: it’s hard; it’s simple; it works.
