What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program that forges elite fitness levels. It is now a global phenomenon and amassing cult-like followers daily.
CrossFit has not only revolutionised fitness - but actually turned it into a sport. The CrossFit sport of fitness punishes the specialist and encourages broad and varied training that develops skills across the entire portfolio of human physical abilities (strength, speed, stamina, power, balance, agility, coordination, cardiovascular, flexibility, accuracy).
As such, CrossFit workouts are random and intensely demanding using fitness equipment that is notoriously basic. This approach to total fitness is building elite athletes from some of the most basic fitness equipment known to man. Popular CrossFit equipment spans from Olympic weights, kettlebells, and pull-up rigs, to resistance bands and gymnastics rings.
When it comes to fitness equipment, CrossFit is the very proof that elite fitness is crafted from basic tools, grit, determination and heart.
