What Is CrossFit?

What Is CrossFit?

Constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity.

There are ten recognized general physical skills. They are cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. You are as fit as you are competent in each of these ten skills. A regimen develops fitness to the extent that it improves each of these ten skills.

Cardio

The ability of body systems to gather, process, and deliver oxygen.

Stamina

The ability of body systems to process, deliver, store, and utilize energy.

Strength

The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply force.

Flexibility

The ability to maximize the range of motion at a given joint.

Power

The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply maximum force in minimum time.
