in 100 Words:
Eat meat and vegetables, 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 major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six 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.
What to expect at CrossFit Class?
Expect something totally different than anything you have tried before! Maybe you have done some of the movements before, but have you done with the support of coaches and peers? The CrossFit community is one of the most supportive group of people around. It does not matter if you are just beginning or if you are a seasoned athlete, the support you will receive will push you to new limits you never thought possible. You just have to try!
Do I need to be extra fit to do CrossFit? Absolutely not! CrossFit movements can be scaled to any fitness level. Intensity is the key. Work hard and give it your best. CrossFit along with good nutrition will take you to where you never thought you could go with your health and confidence! Come as you are and begin to become who you want to be!
What to bring? Not a lot. Workout clothes, good training shoes and a water bottle. Don't forget the can-do attitude!
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed our workouts posted daily on this site and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.
