What Is CrossFit

CrossFit by definition is “Constantly Varied Functional Movements performed at High Intensity”. It is a program where ANYONE from an elite athlete to a couch potato to a grandma can reach their peak potential in health and fitness. CrossFit is a fun and effective way to reach any fitness health goals whether it is for job performance, sports specific, quality of life, anything & everything. Every workout we do can be performed by anyone because the fitness needs of an elite athlete to our grandparents differ by degree not by kind, we do movements that everyone can do but the load & intensity will be modified for people at different skill levels.

CrossFit prepares you for the unknown and the unknowable!

World Class Fitness In 100 Words Or Less!

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, clean and jerk, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, paralettes, 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.
