What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is contantly varied, functional movements that are performed at high inensity. It increases work capacity across broad time and modal domains. our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general and inclusive.

Varied, if not random, functional movements done at high intensity. The CrossFit class focuses on the Workout of the Day (WOD). The WODs are scaled and modified to each athlete's level and performed at the highest intensity that the individual can sustain with good form and proper technique.
