The definition of CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity. In more plain English, CrossFit is based off movements that are natural, universal, essential and safe, relative to each individual. It is also believed to be the truest test of fitness. For instance a marathon runner and a competitive weightlifter are the highest levels of fitness for their speciality, however we believe through CrossFit, true fitness is being able to run long distances, lift heavy weight and be diverse across all types of exercise. CrossFit is a lifestyle, it is a community, it's something that pushes us every day to want to be better and do better. It is something that, from the outside, can seem intimidating and unorthodox, but once you become a part of it you can't live without it. Come join us and we will show you!
