What Is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a variation of functional movements performed at relatively high intensity. These kind of workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more.
These are the core movements of life.
They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time or power.
The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.
Anyone Can Start Doing It At Any Time
You can scale every CrossFit workout from beginner, to intermediate, to advanced athlete.Every workout is to be scaled so that both the novice & the experienced CrossFitter can work out together.
You’ll Find A Real Connection With Your Team
CrossFit is about community. You build each other up and as a family, both our bodies and our bonds get stronger. That’s why it is highly recommended to find a coach who is really passionate about CrossFit that will input a sense of community within your team.
You should have a passionate coach, one,who does not only understands the specifics of CrossFit programming and the proper mechanics of movement, but also acting as a patriarch or matriarch of this family.
Tough workouts will bring you close to your teammates as you conquer challenges together. Unlike a typical sport, in CrossFit it is the athlete that finishes last that gets the biggest applause!

It improves your general happiness and leads to stronger relationships which even translates to the office as well.
It’s total life improvement!
