What is CrossFit?
The core of CrossFit training is simply learning how to move your body. We all move our body every single day, some a little easier than others. What if every single day your life was a little bit easier because of what you did in the gym? For you this could mean it helps you perform maximally in your sport; it could also mean you get off that medication that you hate; or it could be as simple as helping you carry in ALL the groceries in one massive trip!
What CrossFit will teach you is that no matter your starting point there is always an intelligent next step in developing a relationship with your body and your health.
One of the best things about CrossFit is that it’s almost infinitely scalable. If you can’t do the workout as prescribed, then you do what you can. If you can’t do pull ups or haven’t even heard of a burpee, we will make the work out scalable for you and teach you the techniques to learn and get better at the movements.
However, CrossFit is also good at challenging you to do more than you think you can. The line between wussing out and honestly failing because you’re so fatigued you can’t even lift your finger might seem pretty thin. A tough CrossFit WOD can teach you the difference.
What does this mean for me?
In CrossFit classes you will see familiar movements like squats and pushups, along with potentially unfamiliar movements like muscle ups and snatches. This is exactly what makes it fun! The workouts are constantly varied to assure balance of fitness development and every workout is scalable to your specific fitness level. Every person has a combination of fitness goals and weaknesses, so not only will CrossFit training expose those weaknesses, it will help open your eyes to what is possible for you to achieve with your body and show you the path to get there.
