What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a kind of exercise that is based on building strength around constantly varied and functional movements executed at high intensity. We don’t do things like bicep curls, which just use one muscle in a way that it is rarely used in real life. Instead, we use the whole body to do movements, in a way that much more closely mimics how you actually use your body on a daily basis. Think about grabbing a one-gallon jug of milk; you wouldn’t be bicep curling it, you’d be reaching, lifting & pulling. That’s why CrossFit is used in the military, police & fire training, and in any profession that involves being strong and ready.
Workouts take place during a one-hour class. A typical class will involve something like: 10 minute warm up, 10 – 15 minutes learning a skill or a move, 10 – 15 minutes of weight lifting, 10 – 15 minutes of a WOD (Workout Of The Day.) Of course, it’s constantly varied, so you never know what to expect. That’s what makes it fun and never boring. In, out and in pain (the good kind) in an hour.
