WHAT IS CROSSFIT?

By Definition: CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movement performed at a high intensity. CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program aimed at increasing work capacity across broad time and model domains.

The movements are varied: This means for example you will never do the same movement two days in a row. Movements that are performed are that which develop speed, power and strength and will transfer to your everyday life.

Workouts are performed at a relatively high intensity. Relative understands that everyone is different and begin CrossFit at very different fitness levels.

All workouts are scalable to each individual’s fitness levels and needs regardless of your current fitness level.

EVERYONE! The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it perfect for any everyone regardless of their current experience or fitness level.

NEW TO CROSSFIT?

Congratulations! Welcome to CrossFit. It is one of the fastest growing fitness movements on Earth.

CrossFit does not discriminate. Whether you are 50 years old, have just completed a marathon, are a keen sportsperson, are recovering from injury, whether walking is the only exercise you’ve had in years, or you’re someone training for an obstacle race …CrossFit will help you achieve your fitness goals.

One of the things that makes CrossFit so unique is our community of people from literally every walk of life: stay-at-home parents, elite athletes, students, CEOs, members of the armed services, firefighters, you name it, our workouts every day, are designed for anyone to do them.

“Scalability” is a word that you will hear frequently here at CrossFit. During each class, everyone does the same workout, but that workout will always have several scaling options. This makes it possible for all of us – with our different body types, personal goals and levels of ability – to work alongside one another safely. We motivate one another, cheer one another on, and sometimes participate in some healthy competition. But, ultimately, every workout is yours alone.

Your Workout=Your Pace

We refer to workouts as WODs – “workouts of the day” – acronyms are fun!
