What Is


Let me tell you about CrossFit…

CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program that is based on constantly varied functional movements executed at a high intensity.  The program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general and inclusive.  Our specialty is not specializing.  CrossFit enhances an individual’s competency at all physical tasks, not just specific sports.

CrossFit is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience.  The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind.  We use the same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and elite college athletes.  We scale the load and intensity; we do NOT change the program.

CrossFit programming is a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness domains; Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance and Accuracy. Combining the CrossFit training mentality with a proper diet is our overall goal.  The “CrossFit Pyramid” starts with a foundation built on nutrition, followed by Metabolic Conditioning, Gymnastics, Weightlifting and Sports.  All of these support the ten fitness domains.

CrossFit has been called the “Sport of Fitness” because it re-introduces personal athletic achievement and performance to training.  The mindset at the start of each workout is to be stronger, move faster, more efficiently and with better form than ever.  This is why even after years of CrossFit style training, scores and times in workouts continue to improve and athletes continue to progress.  It is hard, fun, exciting, challenging and will push you to be your absolute best!
