The textbook definition of CrossFit is that CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program designed around “constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity.” Although the previous statement may accurately describe CrossFit, we’d like to expand on that definition. CrossFit is the best fitness program available. As previously mentioned, CrossFit workouts are based on fundamental functional movements used in everyday life, that provides the “broadest and most general fitness possible,” improving invaluable physical skills in ten areas:
1. Cardio/Respiratory Endurance
CrossFit workouts utilize many different techniques that may not be familiar to everyone. Because of this, we recommend our new members to complete the Elements course so that they can safely, effectively, and confidently begin our regular classes.
You will practice proper form and technique on the basic movements and lifts that compose our workouts. By learning to execute these techniques properly, you will be able to successfully complete workouts while avoiding injury and also be able to gradually ramp up your intensity level.
Throughout the class you will also learn how to scale movements to your appropriate fitness level. The Elements class is NOT required before attending our regular classes, but it is recommended that you attend within your first two weeks.
Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or have never worked out, CrossFit is for you.
