What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that is founded on building functional fitness. It’s specialty is that there is no specialization!

Sports, combat, and everyday life reward functional fitness. CrossFit delivers fitness that is broad and inclusive to everyone. It is universally scalable – meaning it is the perfect workout for any individual regardless of age, experience, or fitness level.

From elderly individuals to professional athletes, CrossFit meets all of their life’s physical needs. The weight and intensity can be scaled, but the programs never do.

According to CrossFit HQ, “the needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.”
