CrossFit is many things…

Mainly, it is a fitness regimen developed by Coach Greg Classman over several decades. Glassman was the first person in history to define fitness in both a meaningful and measurable way. CrossFit is defined as that which optimises fitness – constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity. CrossFit also refers to the communal aspect of athletes who do train together and is a key component of why it is so effective.

CrossFit Prescription For Fitness

  • Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar

  • Keep intake levels that will support exercise but not body fat

  • Practice and train major lifts: deadlift, clean, squat, presses, clean & jerk 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
