CrossFit is a ‘strength and conditioning system built on constantly varied, functional movements executed at high intensity’. This simply means that before your body gets used to the same stimulus we keep your body constantly challenged, forcing it to adapt to the tasks at hand. We don’t put the body in unnatural positions through the use of machines we instead mimic real life situations using large muscle groups in conjunction with each other. The workout is then completed as fast as is possible for the individual whilst maintaining the CrossFit standards and full range of movement, you are continually aiming to beat your previous best which acts as an excellent motivational tool.
The concept behind CrossFit is GPP, General Physical Preparedness, the idea of being prepared physically and mentally for an infinite number of tasks, which are transferable to everyday life.
