WHAT IS CROSSFIT

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. - ​ CrossFit Inc.

 

CrossFit is a functional training philosophy founded in the early 2000s in California, by Greg Glassman, based on the principle that true “fitness” is made up of several different ingredients:

  1. Strength

  2. Power

  3. Endurance

  4. Stamina

  5. Flexibility

  6. Agility

  7. Accuracy

  8. Speed

  9. Coordination

  10. Balance

In order to build proficiency in the above, CrossFit draws inspiration from techniques across different sports in a unique way and prescribes a constantly varied programme of physical exercise, aimed at challenging the body daily by combining functional movements in different patterns, over different time horizons and for different purposes.

 

The end result? People who are better adapted to the multitude of physical challenges this world throws at them, whatever stage of life they happen to be in.
