CrossFit is a broad based, inclusive fitness program. We believe that true health and fitness is attained by training a wide variety of functional movements and executing them at high intensity. We believe that there are 10 components of fitness, ranging from the obvious things like strength and endurance to more subtle things like balance, speed, and coordination. No matter who you are or what your goals are, we believe your life will be improved by constantly improving on these 10 components. Imagine 3 different people: an Olympic athlete, a firefighter, and a grandmother. All 3 have basically the same needs regarding human performance. All 3 need to be able to squat, pick up things off the ground, place objects up over their heads, etc… however, it’s the intensity of what they do, and their reasons for doing it that differ.
Who can CrossFit?
Our classes are made up of a wide variety of folks, of all different athletic backgrounds including none. The basic workout is the same for everyone; it’s the intensity we change to meet individual needs. We can adjust weight up or down, scale movements to train around injuries or deficiencies… etc. The end result is that everyone gets a great workout that is scaled appropriately to their abilities. It should be noted that our workouts are challenging. If you are looking for a fitness program that allows you to coast and be unaccountable to your efforts you may be better off exploring other options. If you are mentally strong and willing to do the hard work you will likely find CrossFit to be the best fitness experience you have ever had.
