The workouts are always challenging and never boring. All training sessions are coached by a CrossFit Certified trainer. Each workout is scaled by load and intensity but not by kind. All fitness levels from college athletes to grandmothers can participate together. The coaching is supportive, enthusiastic and welcoming to anyone who is willing to focus and put in the work.
CrossFit is not your ordinary workout. But it is for ordinary people looking for dramatic results.
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a grass roots fitness revolution that was born in Santa Cruz. It is a strength and conditioning program that is the brain child of legendary coach Greg Glassman. The system is built around functional movements done at high intensity with lots of variance. It combines weightlifting, gymnastics, and cardiovascular activities in as many ways as there are possible. CrossFit re-defines and refreshes our ideas of fitness.
Glassman started as a trainer in a small garage training studio. In 2002 he published a website designed to study the efficacy of the workouts. On the internet, Greg could measure, observe, and repeat his workouts and collect data from anyone willing to try the workout for free. CrossFit and CrossFit.com have become an underground sensation. Thousands of participants are blogging on a daily basis. The small garage beginning now boasts more that 700 affiliates worldwide.
CrossFit has gained popularity because it is infectious and it works. Some people are doing CrossFit on their own through CrossFit.com, where they log on to the website and do Glassmans workout of the day (WOD) for free. They report their times, scores and loads to cyberspace and compare themselves to the broader community.
Thousands of other Cross-Fitters are going to a local affiliate to get coached and join a community of athletes. The camaraderie and technique they get by joining a group and being coached keeps them coming back for more.
CrossFit has been featured in the New York Times, LA Times, Fitness Magazine, Mens Health, and many more. CrossFit foundations continue to show up in mainstream fitness culture more and more all the time. The programs certifications and seminars continue to grow and sell out every weekend.
