The fastest growing method in the world for getting people fit is CrossFit. CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that wants to create an all around sense of fitness. It seeks out to create a competency in all ten areas of fitness: strength, stamina, cardio/respiratory endurance, flexibility, power, speed, balance, coordination, accuracy, and agility. CrossFit also wants fitness to be inclusive of everybody, no matter how much or how little someone’s athletic background is. Everyone can benefit because CrossFit’s programming is centered around functional movement, which means mechanics used in everyday life, like pickup a bag of groceries, to athletic performance. Everybody, including athletes, can benefit from a well rounded base of fitness with an emphasis on functional movement.
As a CrossFit affiliate we want to make our members the fittest individuals you could come across. But, the question is “what is fitness?” We don’t believe being fit is being able to run (or walk) on a treadmill for two hours, staring at how big your biceps are in the mirror, or how much you can bench press. These things aren’t bad, we just think focusing only on these specific things limit the ability of someone achieving what is being fit. CrossFit addresses ten areas of fitness: cardio/respitory endurance, strength, stamina, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance, coordination, and accuracy. If you are competent in all these areas, you are fit.
We want to set the bar higher. Why focus on losing a few pounds on the scale when you can make your first pull-up or run a faster 5K (or be able to run one at all)? Don’t sell yourself short, make a lifestyle change. There is a whole community out there encouraging each other to push the limits of fitness. CrossFit doesn’t limit itself to helping or making the ultra-elite athlete, but making everybody feel inclusive. No matter the physical ability, CrossFit can benefit everybody. CrossFit A-Game’s members have ranged from expecting mothers to professional athletes.
