What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is the most complete fitness programme in the world and is unrivalled by any fitness programme there is.
It is a lifestyle characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition.
We do pull-ups, squats, push-ups, weightlifting, gymnastics, running, rowing, and a host of other movements across broad times and modal domains.
CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance inside and outside of the gym.
The program works for everyone—people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years and this is why Kids, cops, firefighters, soccer moms, Armed Forces, and grandmas all do CrossFit. In fact, hundreds of thousands worldwide have followed our workouts and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes. Welcome to CrossFit.
