What is CrossFit?
CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness. CrossFit itself is defined as that which optimizes fitness
(constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity). CrossFit is also the
community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together. In fact, the communal
aspect of CrossFit is a key component of why it’s so effective.
All of CrossFit’s workouts are based on functional movements. These are the core movements of life,
found everywhere, and built naturally into our DNA. Many people at the traditional “globo” gym may
find themselves performing a tricep pressdown as an exercise, but in everyday life we rarely called to
perform that type of action. However performing a functional movement like a deadlift can translate
into moving a couch easier or make putting groceries in the back of the trunk of your car easier.
Simply said, CrossFit will improve the quality of your life.
You can read or watch videos about CrossFit all you want, but the best way to learn more about CrossFit is to experience it for yourself!
