What Is CrossFit?
CrossFit training is based on the idea of general physical preparedness. We don’t specialize in any one thing, but rather train to become stronger and healthier in daily life. You’ll learn to pick things up over your head safely, push heavy weight effectively, rapidly change directions, and powerfully jump over an obstacle. This is called functional fitness. The things you learn and practice in our gym will have direct carryover into your life outside the gym.
Our training is also constantly varied. You will rarely do the same workout twice unless we are testing to see how much you’ve grown.
There will be new movements, challenging concepts, and stretches that will push your range of motion. Sometimes you’ll move slowly, sometimes you’ll be sprinting as hard as you can. But you’ll always be better than yesterday.
“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.” ~Coach Greg Glassman, CrossFit Founder and CEO (Courtesy of CrossFit Inc.)
