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.

As we finish up our week of goal setting, make sure you spend the time to be diligent in your practice. The only way to achieve some of the goals set in the gym (and life) are to work consistently and methodically towards the end means. Do not always keep the end in sight, just work on the tasks at hand. Climb the ladder one rung at time.
Keep working hard!
