CrossFit begins with a belief and goal to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. We sought to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency — for the unknown, not only the known. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, we have tailored our workouts around the physical skills and adaptations that would universally lend themselves to better performance. Capacity culled from the intersection of all sporting demands — would lend itself well to all sports. In sum, our specialty is not specializing.
CrossFit is many things. Primarily, it’s a fitness regimen developed by Coach Greg Glassman over several decades. Coach Glassman was the first person to define fitness in a meaningful and measurable way (increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains). CrossFit itself is defined as that which optimizes fitness (constantly varied functional movements performed at relative high intensity).
CrossFit is also the community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together. In fact, the communal aspect of CrossFit is a key component of why it’s so effective.
CrossFit is a regimen of constantly varied (CV), functional movements (FM) performed at high intensity (@HI) in a communal environment that leads to greater health and fitness. COME JOIN US at CrossFit Radford.
