What is CrossFit?

We aren’t your typical gym.

In fact, we feel we have more in common with a school than a traditional gym.

But what exactly is CrossFit? This is pretty good summary from Spencer Hall:
CrossFit is an all-encompassing open-source fitness movement involving gymnastics, Olympic lifting, aerobic work, and if the mood is right, whatever “coach” feels like putting on the website as the workout of the day. It is all done very quickly, and with great intensity, and if you are not prepared, it will kindly help you remember what you had for lunch by forcibly reintroducing it to you. If that doesn’t happen, then you will likely end up on the floor praying for oxygen.

Developed by Coach Greg Glassman through many years of watching, working with, and coaching all types of athletes, CrossFit is a fitness and conditioning system that addresses the fitness needs of an “Average Joe” and a top athlete – the only difference being intensity (speed & weight) and volume.

CrossFit is by design broad, general and inclusive.

Its’ specialty is in not specializing, and its workouts elicit a maximal neuro-endocrine response from your body by taxing your body to its core with variety, intensity, and multiple joint, full body, functional movements.

CrossFit has been called “The Sport of Fitness” because it re-introduces personal athletic achievement and performance to training. The mindset at the start of each workout is to be stronger and move faster, more efficiently and with better form than ever. This is why even after years of training CrossFit style, scores and times in workouts continue to drop and athletes continue to improve. It’s hard, fun, exciting, challenging, and will push you to be your absolute best!

CrossFit is also about community.

A community that is dedicated to constant self-improvement.
