Crossfit is a mix of gymnastics, weightlifting, and running/rowing exercises with workouts that are short and long and somewhere in the middle.
CrossFit is a community of people with goals just like yours.
CrossFit is a healthy lifestyle. Its a challenge.
Is CrossFit meant for me?
Your needs and the Olympic athlete’s differ by degree not kind. Increased power, strength, cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, flexibility, stamina, coordination, agility, balance, and coordination are each important to the world’s best athletes and to ourselves, our children, parents, and grandparents. The amazing truth is that the CrossFit program that works for the Olympic or professional athlete will work for everyone else as well. We scale intensity and load for the individual, not the program. So whether you are an athlete or never been an athlete or you are older, the CrossFit program will fulfill your fitness needs.

World-Class Fitness in 100 Words
“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: deadlift, clean, squat, presses, clean and jerk, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climbs, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.”
