In the simplest terms, CrossFit is an incredibly effective strength and conditioning program. We feel the CrossFit method will prepare you for life and sport better than any other training regime in existence today. If there were another system that worked better we would implement it at our facility.
Our gym looks like all gyms did 50 years ago. There are no machines, no Flat screen TV’s, and certainly no gimmicks. CrossFit revolves around a simple idea: work out using only functional, real-life movements; constantly mix them up in as many different combinations as imagination will allow; and always work out at high intensity.
We train the entire body with compound movements, not by isolating individual muscles. Nowhere in sport or in nature will you tax one muscle while the rest of your body relaxes in a nice padded chair, so we don’t train in the gym that way.
CrossFit is a very popular strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. It is also being implemented in nursing homes, schools and physical therapy. If your fitness level is somewhere in between, more than likely it can help you.
