What is crossfit?

CrossFit is a group of people who empower each other to live a healthy lifestyle with a strong body and a stronger mind.

CrossFit can’t be pigeon-holed into one simple definition. Developed by Coach Greg Glassman over several decades, this fitness regimen is designed to be:

  • Functional – Movements in CrossFit are designed to mimic natural body patterns and everyday activities, meaning your ability to live a healthy, independent life is increased.
  • Constantly varied – CrossFit workouts involve constantly varied movements performed at relatively high intensity force your body to adapt in different ways.
  • Measurable – By increasing work capacity across broad time and modal domains, improvements are visible and able to be measured.
CrossFit is more than a way to move your body, though. It is the spirit of the community that forms when people with a common goal gather in one place. It’s the shared sense of accomplishment when people achieve their goals. It’s the incredible feeling of seeing people strive to reach new heights every day. This community is part of why CrossFit is so effective – you don’t just go for a workout.
