All exercises are scaled to your ability and fitness level. We train in a group environment under a CrossFit certified coach who will keep you accountable and motivated.
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning programme for any body, any age, any stage. Both amateur and professional. It is also used by thousands of regular people over the world who are finding that CrossFit® is providing them with the best workouts of their lives – and delivering them fast, functional results.
The CrossFit® programme closely mimics day-to-day activities – its about developing functional strength. Its about blurring the lines between cardio and strength – because life makes no distinction.
The CrossFit® program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. The same routines are used for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters, one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programmes.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Military personal, skiers, rugby players and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
So why is the CrossFit® movement growing so rapidly worldwide? Its scalable to any fitness level, its quick, its functional, and it delivers amazing results. End of story.
Every CrossFit® affiliate worldwide, is bound by a collective ideology. (information courtesy of CrossFit.com)
A Bit More Detail
Eat meat and vegetable, 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: deadlift, clean, squat, presses, clean and jerk, and snatch. Similarly, masters the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstands, box jumps, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row etc, hard and fast. Three or four 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. (From www.crossfit.com)
