Why CrossFit?

Why CrossFit?

 


 

If you weren’t sure what CrossFit is, here’s the definition I use when someone asks me:

“We combine elements of lifting weights, bodyweight movements, and cardio movements in as many different combinations as possible and in workouts done with your friends.”

CrossFit hits us all in different ways but most people say the same thing:  “I was hooked.”

After my first CrossFit workout, unsurprisingly, I was hooked too.  And while people do fall in love with CrossFit, everyone approaches it for different reasons…

Weight Loss

Weight loss comes from small, and consistent, successes with nutrition and exercise.  We teach you how to make these changes to create habits and long term success.

Weight Gain

We incorporate high intensity work with lifting weights.  This, combined with good nutritional sense, will help take you from scrawny to fit.

There’s some consistencies between these first two, huh?

No Apparent Reason to Work Out?  Maybe You Just Need a Mental Time Out from Work?

The workouts are always different, you’re not working out alone, and it’s the one part of your day you don’t have to worry about what you’re doing.  We figure it out for you.

Function in Your Job

The military uses it; first responders use it; fighters and other professional athletes use it; and so do we.  You can prepare yourself for many more situations life will throw at you by training in as many different ways as we can throw at you.

In other words, we train for General Physical Preparedness (GPP).

Regardless of your place in life and goals for yourself, CrossFit provides the building blocks for you to take control of you future.

“Our understanding is that the needs of the Olympic athlete and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind.  One needs functional competence to stay out of the nursing home.  The other one wants functional dominance to win medals.”

-Greg Glassman, CrossFit Founder

So, why CrossFit?

My response?

“Why not?”
