What is Fitness

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.

–Coach Glassman

What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is an exercise concept by former gymnast, Greg Glassman, that was originally developed as an exercise program combining training techniques from various sports that could benefit everyone. This multi-faceted fitness program, by scaling the intensity and skill level of each workout, has universal appeal and application; it is ideal for people of all ages and experience levels.  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.  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.

CrossFit is designed to improve fitness in ten areas:

Cardio/Respiratory Endurance
Stamina
Strength
Flexibility
Power
Speed
Coordination
Agility
Balance
Accuracy

The CrossFit program incorporates full body motions and specific body weight exercises including but not limited to: gymnastic movements, jumping, climbing, Russian kettlebell training, rowing, and more randomly combined movements at various intensities with short rest periods to achieve optimal results.  Because each CrossFit workout will be constantly changing and consistently challenging, there is little room for your body to plateau, your results to stagnate, and for your routine to bore you.
