Why Constantly Varied? Our bodies are meant to adapt to physical activities. Once adapted, physical changes decrease or stop all together. In essence routine is the enemy. CrossFits programming keeps the body guessing and always adapting. "Constantly varied" allows us to use movements we excel at but also test the ones that we find difficult. Through performing the movements you least appreciate better level of fitness you will obtain.
What is High Intensity? High Intensity as defined by CrossFit is how fast you get real work done. The more work you can do in less time increases power. The more power you can do the harder it is and also yields the best results.
What are functional movements? Functional movements mimic common activity of your daily living or movements that aren't so common like running from a dog, climbing a wall during a mud run or lifting a heavy rock off a trapped friend. These compound joint movements also yield the best results for strength, positive hormone release and overall body composition.
What does "universally modifiable" mean? Modifying allows us to adjust the daily workouts to any Athletes’ age, experience or athletic ability, etc. Many individual join CrossFit to get in shape and will not be able to complete the prescribed workout or movements, and that’s ok. Using a systematic approach to modifying down or up, we are able to mimic what the athletes will see written for class and get a great workout that will get results for that individual.
