WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
CrossFit is an evidence-based fitness program. In other words, we believe that progress is measurable and we strive to use benchmarks that are repeatable and observable, that take the guess work out of whether or not we are getting better.
We define fitness as increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. "Capacity" is the ability to do real work, which is measurable using the basic terms of physics (mass, distance, and time). Life is unpredictable (much more so than sport), so real world fitness must be broad and not specialized, both in terms of duration and type of effort (that's the "time and modal domains" part).
The magic is in the movements. All of CrossFit’s workouts are based on functional movements. These are the core movements of life, found everywhere, and built naturally into our DNA. They move the largest loads the longest distances so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time (intensity).
In implementation, CrossFit is, quite simply, the “sport of fitness.” We’ve learned that harnessing the natural camaraderie, competition, and fun of sport or game yields an intensity that cannot be matched by other means.
