What Is Crossfit

CrossFit is a CORE Strength and Conditioning Program made up of Constantly varied, Functional movements performed at High Intensity.

Constantly Varied: A wide variety of movements from weightlifting, gymnastics, Olympic lifting and cardiovascular modalities changing from day to day.

Functional Movement: Core to extremity, compound and multi-joint movement. Capacity to move large loads over large distances quickly.

High Intensity: Defined exactly as power and intensity is the independent variable most commonly associated with maximizing favorable adaptation to exercise.

Force x Distance/Time = Power
