Crossfit is a lifestyle characterized by safe and effective exercise and healthy nutrition. CrossFit can be used to achieve anything from improving health to losing weight to improving performance. The program works for everyone who is just starting out and people who have been trained for years.
The stated purpose of CrossFit is “to increase the capacity to work in broad modal and temporal domains. The program seeks to help participants achieve the highest possible level of achievement in all physical aspects of their lives. This reflects founder Greg Glassman's belief that the best measure of a person's overall health is not a medical measurement, such as blood pressure
or a combination of them, but a person's overall physical condition. Healthy lifestyle training requires a person to push their body to achieve the highest degree of physical fitness possible.
CrossFit can be an effective workout for losing weight, building strength, agility and flexibility, and improving your aerobic fitness. However, it may not be suitable for everyone. CrossFit principles are designed to help you perform daily movements with greater strength and stability. The unique training helps to avoid boredom and inspires devoted followers of people who love sequences.
You may be lifting a tire in a CrossFit exercise, but the real purpose is to easily lift your child or carry all the shopping bags to avoid the dreaded second trip.
