CrossFit is officially defined as constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.
“Constantly varied”: Aside from benchmark workouts used to measure progress over time, we rarely, if ever, repeat workouts. You won’t have a chance to get bored or stuck in a rut because our programming is designed around changing it up every day. We will try new movements or more reps or a different order or new implements. When the same body performs different workouts, magic happens.
“Functional”: CrossFit is also designed to make you better at living your life. We want you to be able to get in and out of your seat easily. We want you to be able to climb flights of stairs without losing your breath. We want you to be able to bend over to pick something up or reach for an item on a high shelf without pain. We want you to be able to carry your groceries without difficulty. All nine of CrossFit’s foundational movements ensure that you can move your body in a way that enables you to not only physically get through your day but do so without struggle or strain.
“High intensity”: We are about work. We want to get you moving and sweating and pushing yourself to places you never imagined yourself to be capable, both physically and mentally. That means you will experience periods of intensity during every workout. warm up cool down injury prevention
