CROSSFIT | FUNCTIONAL HEALTH & FITNESS
What is CrossFit? CrossFit is defined as a strength and conditioning program that is “constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement, with the stated goal of improving fitness (and therefore general physical preparedness), which is defined as “work capacity across broad time and modal domains.” Workouts are typically short—20 minutes or less—and intense, demanding all-out physical exertion. We combine movements such as sprinting, rowing, jumping rope, climbing rope, flipping tires, weightlifting, and carrying odd objects; we use barbells, dumbbells, gymnastics rings, pull-up bars, kettlebells, medicine balls, boxes for box jumps, and many bodyweight exercises. These elements are mixed in numerous combinations to form prescribed “Workouts of the Day” or “WODs”. Hour-long classes at affiliated gyms, or “boxes,” typically include a warm-up, a skill development segment, the high-intensity WOD, and a period of individual or group stretching. Performance on each WOD is often scored and/or ranked to encourage competition and to track individual progress.
If you are a beginner we recommend that you consider our 6-class and private lesson beginner on-ramps.
