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.

Scaling to ability
Everyone who starts Crossfit begins with different levels of experience and fitness, from a total beginner to fitness, to a regular gym goer. A big advantage of Crossfit is that everybody can join and scale their workout individually, so everybody is challenged but never over challenged. The aim of scaling is to give the appropriate intensity to increase your fitness level and progress your strength while ensuring you are moving with correct form. You can adjust the training to your level at the beginning and keep changing it as you progress.
 
As a beginner you will see many athletes in your box lifting heavy weights and smashing a workouts faster than ever think you would be able to. But they have also been through the same process as you, everyone has to start at the beginning you will get there in your own time. Do not compare yourself with others, but find out where your limits are, and what is possible for you to do. Everybody is different and will progress at different rates.
Don't underestimate yourself, continue to challenge yourself at your own pace even if the steps feel small its progress, on the other side of the coin overestimating yourself can increase the potential risk of injury. Consistency is the key to development!
