“Mark: Wow! I am going to be sore this weekend.  But I really enjoyed myself.  It was one of the good burns!  My arms were so tired…I enjoyed it.  It was very hard but I think it was fine.  I would not hesitate to recommend you!”  Best, Tim M.

What is CrossFit? CrossFit can be defined as the sport of fitness. It is constantly varied, high intensity, functional movements.  So what does that mean? Constantly varied means we changes things up every day, we occasionally, but infrequently, do the same workout. This means you won’t get bored doing a routine workout.  It also means you will be prepared for the unexpected challenges life hands you.  High intensity means we go hard.  If you want to get in shape, you need to go hard. If you are going to do a boring, low intensity jaunt on an elliptical machine, why bother?  Functional movements are movements which are necessary to life. Take the squat for example, this movement could allow you to pick up a grocery bag or a toddler. Functional movements are compound, yet irreducible.  Looking again at the squat, it uses various joints, the hips, knees and ankles to name a few, yet it cannot be broken down into smaller movements.
