What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a remarkably simple, general strength and conditioning program that will transform the way you think about health and fitness. Yes, it’s THAT effective… and THAT revolutionary! It will do this by exposing you to functional movements at appropriately high intensity, with a ton of variety. The result is long-lasting, evidence-based improvements in your health and fitness. You will see the results for yourself and this evidence will prove to you that you’re on the right track. And you will probably be making the greatest improvements of your life.
World-Class 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.

Is CrossFit For You?
It’s easy to feel intimidated by CrossFit if you’ve never been big into fitness, but the truth is, CrossFit is for everyone.
People of all fitness levels. Every workout can be scaled to meet the needs of everybody in the class, no matter if you haven’t been to a gym since gym class, or if you’re a professional athlete. We challenge you at whatever level you’re on.
People who want fun in their workout. One of the fundamental concepts of CrossFit is constant variation in movements. The routine is no routine; you will not be bored.
People who have limited time. You don’t need to spend 2 hours at the gym to get great results. Our classes are 45 minutes to an hour long, short enough to fit into the busiest schedules.
People who want to look and feel strong. A byproduct of a CrossFit workout is that you feel like a superhero for the rest of the day. With perseverance and dedication, you start looking like one.
People who want a community. Our group classes are different than those you might find at a normal gym. Instead of exercising beside people who never know your name, we introduce ourselves, talk about our goals, cheer each other on, and develop friendships.
