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 ten recognized fitness domains. They are Cardiovascular and Respiratory endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.
What is fitness?
CrossFit makes use of three different standards or models for evaluating and
guiding fitness. Collectively, these three standards define the CrossFit view of
fitness. The first is based on the ten general physical skills widely recognized
by exercise physiologists. The second standard, or model, is based on the performance
of athletic tasks, while the third is based on the energy systems that
drive all human action.
