What is CrossFit?

"CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program built on constantly varied, if not randomized, functional movements executed at high intensity.- Coach Greg Glassman

The CrossFit method is to establish a hierarchy of effort and concern that builds as follows:

5. Sport - applies fitness in competitive atmosphere with more randomized movements and skill mastery.

4. Weightlifting and throwing - develop ability to control external objects and produce power.

3. Gymnastics - establishes functional capacity for body control and range of motion.

2. Metabolic Conditioning - builds capacity in each of three metabolic pathways, beginning with aerobic, then lactic acid, and then phosphocreatine pathways.

1. Nutrition - lays the molecular foundations for fitness and health.

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.

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 cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. 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.
