CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness. The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. We have sought 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, we asked 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, our specialty is not specializing.
Always changing the workouts, never letting your body adapt. This is why CrossFit is great for getting results. Your body never gets used to anything so you never reach those plateaus.
Are movements humans were built for. Movements that are natural and safe. Movements we use in everyday life such as Air squat, Front squat, Overhead squat, Shoulder press, Push press, Push jerk, Deadlift, Sumo deadlift, and the Med ball clean. This is NOT standing on a Bosu ball on one leg doing bicep curls. This is NOT sitting in a machine that holds you in place while you execute a movement that isolates one muscle leaving your body unbalanced with useless strength. These are movements that promote neurological and hormonal responses, leading to better health, actual strength, actual core stability, agility, and flexibility.
This is where many misconceptions about CrossFit come from. Many people think intensity is screaming and yelling and looking like you are going to pop a vein in your neck. This is not intensity although it may sometimes be the result of intensity. Intensity is synonymous with power (Force multiplied by distance
divided by time.) This translates into exercise by converting it to: the load, multiplied by the bar path/movement, divided by the time. In basic language we are saying power/intensity is how much weight you can move over the longest distance in the shortest amount of time, while of course maintaining proper form
CrossFit can be scaled to any body, any age, and any level of fitness. It’s fun, its safe, and best of all it gets results. Call or schedule an appointment here to experience it first hand for free with our free class!
