WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
Constantly Varied Functional Movement Performed at High Intensity
CrossFit is a Strength and Conditioning program. It is Constantly Varied, and uses Functional Movements performed at High Intensity.
These are movements that mimic patterns that are used in everyday life. For example:
Squatting is standing from a seated position, and deadlifting is picking any object off the ground. Shoulder Press is putting an object on a shelf, and a pull-up is pulling yourself up and over an object.
Functional movements are perfectly in balance with your body’s mechanics, and are therefore safe.
CONSTANTLY VARIED WORKOUTS
CrossFit workouts are designed to prepare you for anything life can throw at you. The program aims to improve the ten fundamental attributes of Fitness:
Strength, Power, and Speed. Stamina, Endurance, and Agility. Flexibility, Accuracy, Balance and Co-ordination.
Each of which are developed using a blend of Metabolic Conditioning (Cardio), Weightlifting, and Gymnastics.
Each class will contain three components. A warm-up, a skill or strength element, and a Workout Of the Day (WOD).
The WODs are performed at HIGH INTENSITY, as per CrossFit prescription. This means that you will either be prescribed:
a. A specific amount work to complete, using specific movements, as quickly as possible, or
b. An amount of time to perform as much work, using specific movements, as possible
