CrossFit: constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity and across broad time and modal domains.
Or, more simply the thing we do every day.
Every day, the people at our box
- Practice major olympic and power lifts like the clean and jerk, snatch, deadlift and squat
- Gain new gymnastics skills, like pull-ups and handstands
- Throw around dumbbells and kettle bells
- Get sweaty doing cardio like running, rowing and skipping
- Improve under the watchful and safe eyes of our coaches
- Sign-in before class...or risk extra burpees
- Play naughts and crosses, tag and crab soccer (come along and find out!)
- Celebrate each other's successes - whether personal bests, hand tears or simply showing up
A typical session (or class) runs for an hour and progresses through a warm-up, strength or skill work (such as working on an Olympic lift) and then a WOD or Work Out of the Day.
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"
