What is Crossfit?

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program designed to improve strength, endurance, flexibility and explosiveness through a combination of rowing, running, bodyweight exercises, gymnastics, kettlebells and weight training. The workouts are constantly varied series of functional movements, performed at a high intensity. Many police and firefighter companies and academies, tactical operations and military units and martial artists employ crossfit to develop the fitness needed in their fields. The Crossfit program scales the load and intensity of workouts depending on ability, experience, age and fitness goals, but all athletes do the same program with the same goal of achieving top-level fitness.
