What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program.  We have designed our program to elicit as broad an adaptational response as possible.  CrossFit is not a specialized fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of the ten recognized physical domains.  Our athletes are trained to perform successfully at multiple, diverse, and randomized physical challenges.  This fitness is demanded of military and police personnel, firefighters, and many sports requiring total or complete physical prowess.  CrossFit has proven effective in these arenas.

“constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement.”

Our athletes are trained to bike, run, swim, and row at short, middle, and long distances guaranteeing exposure and competency in each of the three main metabolic pathways.  The fitness that CrossFit advocates and develops is deliberately broad, general, and inclusive.  Our specialty is not specializing.  Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

We train our athletes in gymnastics from rudimentary to advanced movements, garnering great capacity at controlling the body both dynamically and statically while maximizing strength to weight ratio and fexibility.  We also place a heavy emphasis on Olympic Weightlifting having seen this sport’s unique ability to develop an athletes’ explosive power, control of external objects, and mastery of critical motor recruitment patterns.  And finally, we encourage and assist our athletes to explore a variety of sports as a vehicle to express and apply their fitness.

In short, CrossFit prepares you for life, for the unknown and unknowable!
