What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a GPP (General Physical Preparedness) program. In layman’s terms, it’s a program designed to help the body better prepare itself for life, and its purpose is to produce a fitness that is broad, general and inclusive. We aim to develop all facets of fitness, including strength, speed, agility, power, endurance, stamina, balance, coordination, accuracy and flexibility. In its application CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movement, performed at a high intensity. Varied – Mixed combinations of movements, repetitions and time domains. Functional – Those that transfer through to basic natural human movement patterns e.g. Squatting, Lifting and Pressing without using machines. High Intensity – Relative to the individual’s physical and psychological capacity and level of experience.
