CrossFit Introduction
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.
What is CrossFit
CrossFit is “constantly varied, functional movements executed at high intensity”.

Constantly varied – Our training is general. We train for the unknown, not only the known. We train across a broad range of modalities (gymnastic/body weight movements, cardio, external load weights) in order to achieve total fitness. Other than the occasional “benchmark” Work Out of the Day (WOD), you will not see the same workout twice. Each WOD will work the full body, from core to extremity. You will NOT see isolated movements - lateral raises, bicep curls, leg extensions – typical of a big business “globo” gym.

Functional movements – The movements we execute in CrossFit are natural; that is, they are variations on how your body was designed to move. We squat, stand, bend, lift, pull and push. We train these movements in such a way as to maintain the body’s ability to perform them powerfully and efficiently, despite aging. These movements are essential to maintaining quality of life.

High intensity – In CrossFit, we strive to “move large loads, long distances, quickly”. The goal is to maintain, during the WOD, the highest relative intensity you are able to give that day. As with many other types of physical demands, the amount you are willing to give equals the amount you should expect to get from a CrossFit workout. Don’t forget: duration of a typical CrossFit WOD is less than 12 minutes.
