“Constantly varied, functional movements executed at high intensity” Constantly Varied: Like life, our workouts keep you on your toes. Train to expect the unexpected. We preach constant variety and creativity. We don’t subscribe to “routine.” Functional Movements: Functional Movements are universal motor patterns that mimic our daily movements. Whether you’re lifting a box, picking up a child, or holding an object overhead…these movements are in our daily DNA. Most importantly, these movements are incredibly safe when done properly and evoke a neuro-endocrine response which is essential to growth. High Intensity: How hard and how fast do you want to go? With any workout, the biggest variable is intensity. However, this is something we can control based on your fitness level. Intensity is the key ingredient for results.
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist. The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

We train in these domains by using the following equipment: climbing ropes, pull-up bars, kettle bells and barbells, jump ropes, rowers, and gymnastics rings…just to name our favorites.“World Class Fitness in 100 Words” Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. ~Greg Glassman
