CrossFit Trains for GPP
(General Physical Preparedness). This is accomplished by a training regimen that is always changing. We train for any contingency life may throw at us. We develop a fitness that is broad and develops competence at as many physical demands we can think of. We train long, short, and medium distances and time frames. We use heavy, we use light, and we use medium weights to train with. We practice gymnastics, running, rowing, and olympic weightlifting. Crossfit is scalable to any fitness condition or age. It takes commitment and time spent training. The demands of an olympic athlete and the grandparent vary in degree but not in kind. Every individual has the need to move themselves and external objects (groceries, babies, weights, etc.) efficiently.
CrossFit Trains for Life.
Sickness and Fitness are nothing more than two ends on the same wellness spectrum. We have found that training under conditions that are always changing, and developing competence at many different physical tasks and skills produces a fitness that is unparalleled. We teach proper technique and a lifestyle that puts a premium on nutrition and healthy habits. This is all done in a community that has the common goal of excelling together and inspiring each other to PR's (personal records) and a healthy vibrant life.
