What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a highly effective regimen of continuously-varied functional movements, executed at high intensity.  It is the primary strength and conditioning program used by many professional athletes, firefighters, police, military, and a growing percent of the general public.  CrossFit delivers a fitness that is — by design — broad, general, and inclusive.  Our specialty is in “not specializing“.  Combat, survival, sports and life in general tend to reward this kind of broad-based fitness.  As a means of enhancing overall health and slowing the debilitating effects of aging, CrossFit is unsurpassed.

The CrossFit program is highly scalable, making it perfect for any committed individual regardless of age or experience.  The needs of Olympic athletes, teenagers, housewives and elderly grandparents differ by degree — not by kind.  We scale load and intensity, but do not change the program.

This scalable approach makes it possible for a diverse group of individuals to train together, under the instruction and supervision of an experienced coach.  Each day, the coach designs a different workout with the dual goals of providing maximum benefit AND keeping sessions fun & interesting.  Group classes provide yet another benefit over conventional fitness programs/gyms — the camaraderie and sense of community you get in sharing the workout with a dedicated group of like-minded people can provide unprecedented motivation and satisfaction.
