"CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity"

…OK…but what does that mean?

It means CrossFit is the most effective fitness program on the planet! 
It’s functional and applicable, meaning we only perform movements you’ll use in the real world. 

...but isn't CrossFit really intense?

...don't you need to be in good shape to do it?

Heck no! Anyone can do CrossFit. We’ve trained the elderly, people suffering from morbid obesity, and people with chronic injuries. You’re always under the watchful eye of CFFP coaches. 
Your performance is measured daily, and you’re guaranteed to see results.

Bottom line: our training is safe.

How did CrossFit get its start?

A guy named Greg Glassman came up with one hundred words for how to live healthily and stay fit. 

“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.” 

Live the pyramid. Love the pyramid. It’s smart.
