What is CrossFit?

In short, CrossFit is the sport of fitness.

That's great, but what does the "sport of fitness" mean?

We define fitness as an increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. As coaches we fundamentally believe that fitness is your ability to work as hard as you can (work capacity) for any amount of time (broad time domains) with any skill set thrown at you (broad modal domains). 

It's our job as coaches to make you the best possible athlete you can be. Whether you are competing in an endurance event like a marathon or performing an Olympic lift (lifting heavy weight fast!) we want you to be competent, if not competitive, in anything and everything. We do this through constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.

Okay, I see "high intensity" in there. That means a lot of yelling, right?

No. This is a big misconception involving CrossFit. Intensity is not yelling or screaming; it is the act of creating power. Power is simply defined as your ability to do the most work in the shortest amount of time.

Who is CrossFit for?

Anyone who is willing to put in the work to better themselves. The CrossFit program is infinitely scalable, meaning anyone can do it. As coaches, we pride ourselves on tailoring the programs to each individual athlete. This allows a brand new athlete to be able to work out next to someone who has been doing CrossFit for years. We closely monitor form and technique, adjusting the load and intensity appropriately for each athlete.

You say "athlete" a lot. What if I don’t consider myself an athlete?

We treat everyone like an athlete. Whether you are 14 or 75 years old, our mission stays the same: to make everyone who works out with us the best possible athlete they can be. We understand everyone has varying limitations and ability levels, and we still want to maximize your potential.

What if I have a pre-existing injury or restriction? Can I still do CrossFit?

We do our best to work with anyone who is willing to put in the time and effort to better themselves.  Make sure to put your injury/restriction in your waiver and speak with your coach about it.
