Getting fit with classic exercises taken to the next level

Posted: Updated:

CrossFit is the principal behind strength and conditioning programs for many Division 1 sports programs, military units, police academies and Olympic athletes.

The idea is to constantly vary functional movements at high intensity combining cardiovascular activities, weightlifting, and gymnastics. The workouts are designed to be adjusted for everyone from grandmothers to professional athletes.
