What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning system built on constantly varied, functional movements executed at high intensity. So what does that mean? Let’s break it down. Strength and Conditioning: CrossFit promotes all aspects of fitness, instead of focusing narrowly on just one. Constantly Varied: A different workout every time means CrossFit is never boring! Functional Movements: CrossFit exercises are based on movements the human body is designed to do, and needs to do every day. High Intensity: Working hard is essential, and CrossFit training helps you work your hardest, to get your best results. Last but not least, Scalability: Every exercise can be scaled to your level. If you can’t lift a barbell, start with a broomstick! You’ll still get amazing results, by listening to your body and scaling up when you’re ready.
