Yeah yeah but what does that mean?
CrossFit is meant to be broad and all inclusive. We do anything and everything related to fitness. A 5k is as much CrossFit as a 1 RM deadlift.
Nature punishes the specialist. CrossFit builds athleticism through the 10 measures of fitness:
cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, strength, speed, power, balance, agility, stamina, coordination, accuracy, and flexibility. Any program that doesn’t touch on all of these measures of fitness is not all inclusive, and is not CrossFit.
What should I expect?
Your program is executed in a group setting, with a certified coach present at all times. You learn about fitness in a fun environment with other athletes who are doing hard work alongside you. You don’t compete against the class as much as you compete against yourself. What is the best expression of yourself? CrossFit contends you don’t know of what you are capable, why not come and find out?
