CrossFit Is For Everyone
CrossFit uses 10 measures of fitness, these are: Cardiovascular endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed Coordination, Agility, Balance, Accuracy.
The aim of CrossFit is to improve fitness across all ten of these measures. In order to achieve improvement across all measures, the program consists of constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. Simply put you will run, jump, squat, push, pull and lift.
Constantly varied means that the workouts (WOD's) are always changing daily. You will rarely repeat the same workout which forces the body constantly adapt and you will never become bored of the workouts. Routine is the enemy!
Functional movements are movements that mimic motor recruitment patterns that are found in everyday life. Multi jointed movements that recruit more than one muscle. A deadlift for example translates to picking an item off the ground. Isolation exercises found in other programs like single jointed extensions or curls have no equivalent in everyday life.
High intensity is the level of work that gives the body the best neurological and hormonal response. Basically our workouts will place your body in its prime state in order to achieve the best results.
