CrossFit is a General Physical Preparedness Program. We are not a boot camp or sport specific program. We want to prepare you for the unknown and unknowable. General preparation for random challenges—i.e. unknown and unknowable events—creates fitter individuals. The problem today with most modern day gyms? They use fixed, predictable, and routine regimens. Trainers are also not educated enough to teach proper methods, or don’t push their clients hard enough. We constantly vary functional movements, and perform them with high-intensity. People who perform CrossFit will maximize their results.
We use the approach “evidence based fitness.” A constant learning tool, people participating in CrossFit thoroughly use open source models to clinically test, and community test the methods that are coached. By doing this, we can track and record human performances, demonstrate fitness and programming, and optimize human performance.
CrossFit is performed in a group setting. In using the fun of sport, we build camaraderie, competition, and intense output. This motivates individuals to excel and be held accountable to earn results. We find that even highly motivated or self-motivated people push themselves harder and get better results by working in a group.
CrossFit is hard! But don’t be weary- anyone can do it! Males, females, overweight, young and old, prior injuries, dis-use injuries, you name it. We use a method of universal scalability: We help the not-so-fit to become fit and the already fit to become elite.
We want you to become Athletes. We believe an athlete or someone who is fit to be: Equal parts gymnast, olympic/power lifter, and sprint/runner. An athlete consists of being well rounded at 10 general skills: Cardio/respiratory endurance, strength, speed, power, coordination, agility, balance, accuracy, and flexibility.
Fitness Continuum: Fitness training and healthy living are one pursuit. If we take a list of desirable health traits and put them on a continuum we will see a curve similar to the figure above. The further you move to the right on the curve, or the closer to fitness you get, the better your health will become. This is especially true with proper attention to nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices. Our workouts are therefore also a type of preventative medicine. When you are healthy you get sick less, spend less money and time on healthcare, and feel better both physically and psychologically. Proper nutrition and exercise are not simply a way to perform better or look good, even though these are nice side effects, they are essential components of a healthy life.
