Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. 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 college athletes. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
The definition of CrossFit is "Constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement."
To understand this better we can break it down:
CONSTANTLY VARIED — Always changing the workouts, never letting your body adapt. This is why CrossFit is great for getting results. Your body never gets used to anything so you never reach those plateaus.
HIGH INTENSITY — This is where many misconceptions about CrossFit come from. Many people think intensity is screaming and yelling and looking like you are going to pop a vain in your neck. This is not intensity although it may sometimes be the result of intensity. Intensity is the act of creating power (power = force multiplied by distance divided by time). In basic language we are saying power/intensity is how much weight you can move over the longest distance in the shortest amount of time. Our goal is to create people who can run farther, move more weight, do more push-ups, flip a tire faster, all while of course maintaining proper form and technique.
FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS — Are movements humans were built for. Movements that are natural and safe. Movements we use in everyday life such as squating, deadlifting, pulling yourself up, etc. These are movements that promote neurological and hormonal responses, leading to better health, actual strength, actual core stability, agility, and flexibility
