What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.

Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed our workouts posted daily on this site (www.crossfit.com) and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.

Why is CrossFit different?

The major factor that differentiates CrossFit from the rest is its focus on compound or functional movements. These multi-muscle and multi-joint combinations are essential to our everyday lives and are applied daily by everyone. Picking up a bag of groceries has a striking similarity to an Olympic Deadlift; and sitting down or getting up from the chair couldn’t be any closer to an Air Squat. Our CrossFit-trained coaches will make sure that you fully understand the mechanics of all 9 foundational movements and guide you toward performing them safely and continuously. You will be closely monitored, coached, and pushed to achieve your personal goals. Our workouts vary from day-to-day, simulating the unpredictable challenges that life can place in front of you, forging elite athletes in real life and in the sport of fitness
