What is Crossfit?

/ what we specialize in

CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness. The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. CrossFit strives to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency — not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, CrossFit posed the question of what physical skills and adaptations would most universally lend themselves to performance advantage. Capacity culled from the intersection of all sports demands would quite logically lend itself well to all sport. In sum, CrossFit’s specialty is not specializing.

In its most absolute sense, CrossFit is defined as constantly varied functional movements executed at a high intensity. It encompasses the following ten fitness domains: cardio-respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. CrossFit lays the framework for achieving comprehensive physical fitness and is designed to be broad, general, and inclusive. The CrossFit model is intended to be scalable, and therefore suitable for individuals in any age range or level of fitness. Its purpose is to challenge individuals both mentally and physically, and to help them reach unimaginable goals, both in and out of the box.
