You haven't heard of CrossFit? Let me tell you about CrossFit. CrossFit is a lifestyle in which you are prioritising your health. The ability to do many different things at a high level of intensity. I think it's the absolute best way to help you reach your fitness goals. For me, it's making me happy. A fun way to get fit with a lot of people. The last person finishing is the just as important as the first one.
It's this team atmosphere that ends up making you better as an individual. It's camaraderie, that family that you end up building and the energy that you get back from it yourself, that's CrossFit to me.
You come to a CrossFit gym everybody knows your name, everybody loves you and you're a part of something bigger than just getting a workout.
CrossFit gave me that something extra that I kinda needed in life. It's my outlet, I love it. It's my passion. It's commitment. CrossFit is a sport now.
I like the challenge, I compete with myself, I'm healthier, I am stronger. Even though I was sore, tired and sometimes getting a little discouraged, you know...I felt accountable because the community were looking out for me and it's amazing.
Finding CrossFit and then having to work really damn hard for whatever your goal is... whether it's to compete or just get a pull-up. I love it because the workout is different everyday, I can come in and I don't know what I'm doing.
Everyone is welcoming, everyone is cheering you on. They don't let you quit even if you want to quit.
We all share this experience, which is emotional. It doesn't look emotional, it looks like people working out... but it's emotional. I mean it's raw, it's intense, it's incredible, it's freakin' awesome. I'm going to keep doing it for a long time, I hope.
CrossFit, to me, is a fitness program where the reward for doing well is the ability to express your fitness in everyday life in as many different planes or as many different activities that you can possibly imagine. For all enquiries please send us a message below.
"Great instructors, great atmosphere and incredibly welcoming to people of all ages and levels. Highly recommended." Simon
In this two-part video, CrossFit founder and CEO Greg Glassman explains the purpose of his program. Fitness throughout life is health, and the CrossFit community is leading the way toward transforming the world's view of health and people's ability to achieve it.
"CrossFit is constantly varied, high-intensity functional movement," says Glassman. At Reebok CrossFit One, Glassman defines CrossFit and fitness and discusses the direction CrossFit is headed.
Part 1 will be familiar to those who have been to a Level 1 seminar. It is the classic explanation of what CrossFit is. Glassman also defines fitness and explains the models used to measure it.
Glassman says CrossFit is successful because it's hard—that is the nature of intensity and why so many other programs lack intensity.
"Successful people pursue hard things. Unsuccessful avoid them," he says.
Part 2 takes that original explanation and looks toward the future. Glassman describes his "eureka moment": finding that the area under the power-duration curve was the first "scientifically rigorous" measurement of fitness and encompassed all the other models perfectly. It can even be used to measure health.
"Your fitness is a snapshot of your health," Glassman says.
CrossFit HQ has begun a massive endeavor to collect a wide variety of relevant health, fitness and business metrics through the affiliates and the global community. That data will be analysed by scientists and physicians who will be looking to find best practices by answering this question: "Which of these things is causal, which is correlative?"
