What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a global fitness community that is committed to achieving elite levels of fitness. Its roots started in Santa Cruz, Ca. by Greg Glassman. He was a former gymnast that began training clients with a goal of functional fitness in mind. As a former athlete he believed that exercise and physical fitness should resemble everyday life. Life is unpredictable, it’s challenging and the human body needs to be trained in the same way. He began to evaluate what made people stronger, faster and more physically fit and developed a comprehensive program that helped people achieve these specific goals. This program combined cardio respiratory endurance, weight training (Olympic & Power lifting) and gymnastics. With this vision in mind CrossFit was born. Through the Internet the CrossFit philosophy and training program has spread across the world and has been proven to bring extraordinary results regardless of where you start. People from all walks of life are realizing the benefits of what CrossFit training brings.

There are three components that make up the CrossFit lifestyle. These components are variety, functionality and intensity. This simply means, our workouts will always be different. They involve movements and skills that help you be prepared for real life. Most importantly, our workouts are performed at high levels of intensity. This formula has been community tested and proven to develop the highest levels of physical fitness.

CrossFit has been proven as an extremely effective way to make you stronger, build muscle and lose weight. CrossFit is a deliberate attempt to build a strong foundation in 10 areas of physical fitness. These areas are: cardio & respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. These are required skills regardless of your occupation, age, or athletic background.
