CrossFit is defined as “constantly varied, high intensity, functional movements.”
Breaking down that definition, first up is constantly varied. CrossFit workouts are always changing. By mixing metabolic conditioning with gymnastics and weightlifting, your body stays in a constant state of muscle confusion avoiding plateaus associated with the common exercise routine.
Next up is high intensity. This is where most hesitate when trying CrossFit. We define intensity as work, which is how fast you can move weight over a distance, not how many veins are popping out of your neck or how loud you grunt while lifting. By measuring intensity we can track results. If you move more weight further and faster than last time, your work capacity has increased.
Finally, CrossFit is functional fitness. The movements are based on things we do everyday like pushing, pulling, squatting, and lifting. Our goal is to prepare you for life’s physical demands.
