What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a fitness program.  We aim to safely, effectively, and efficiently train for life, rather than specialize in any one skill.  To do so, our training is constantly varied to include movements from the arenas of Olympic lifting, gymnastics, and endurance sports.  We utilize functional movement patterns that are universally applicable and scalable, meaning they apply to everyone regardless of condition or experience.  Our training focuses on developing movement mechanics, consistency, and intensity  - in that order.  Beyond that, CrossFit is a community. We encourage you try it and be a part of what we do.

Understanding CrossFit:

A concise summary of the underpinnings to CrossFit’s theories.

“The aims, prescription, methodology, implementation, and adaptations of CrossFit are collectively and individually unique, defining of CrossFit, and instrumental in our program’s successes in diverse applications.”

What is Fitness?:

Learn how our finely honed definition of fitness shapes and motivates our success.

“CrossFit makes use of three different standards or models for evaluating and guiding fitness. Collectively, these three standards define the CrossFit view of fitness. The first is based on the ten general physical skills widely recognized by exercise physiologists. The second standard, or model, is based on the performance of athletic tasks, while the third is based on the energy systems that drive all human action.”


An overview of the CrossFit methodology and philosophy.

“CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program. We have designed our program to elicit as broad an adaptational response as possible. CrossFit is not a specialized fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness domains. They are Cardiovascular and Respiratory endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.”
