The definition of CrossFit is ”Constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement.” To dissect this we can split it up:
CONSTANTLY VARIED — Always changing the workouts, never letting your body adapt. This is why CrossFit is great for getting results. Your body never gets used to anything so you never reach those plateaus.
HIGH INTENSITY — This is where many misconceptions about CrossFit come from. Many people think intensity is screaming and yelling and looking like you are going to pop a vain in your neck. This is not intensity although it may sometimes be the result of intensity. In basic language we are saying power/intensity is how much weight you can move over the longest distance in the shortest amount of time, while of course maintaining proper form and technique.
FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS — Are movements humans were built for. Movements that are natural and safe. Movements we use in everyday life such as squating, deadlifting, pulling yourself up, etc. This is NOT standing on a Bosu ball on one leg doing bicep curls. These are movements that promote neurological and hormonal responses, leading to better health, actual strength, actual core stability, agility, and flexibility.
CrossFit can be scaled to any body, any age, and any level of fitness. It’s fun, its safe, and best of all it gets results. Call or schedule and appointment here to experience it first hand for free with our free class!
