What is CrossFit?
With over 13,000 CrossFit affiliates worldwide, CrossFit has become a household name synonymous with health and fitness over the past 2 decades. With the ability to challenge the world's fittest as much as the average person, CrossFit is for anyone looking to improve their health, strength, and overall wellness, not just in the gym, but in almost every aspect of their life.
The needs of Olympic athletes to yourself do not differ by kind, only degree. CrossFit allows for any ability to work alongside each other, completing the same workouts, earning the same benefits and enriching the same community. Along with a strong community, CrossFit provides results, whether you’re looking to lose weight, get fitter or just get a good sweat on, the high intensity workouts will leave with a drive to keep coming back.
CrossFit is mainly run in 60 minute group classes, (once comfortable with the CrossFit movements, open gym time is available at CrossFit 1827). Classes are comprised of a group warm up leading into strength or skill work and finishing each class with a WOD (workout of the day). WODs are made of a mix of constantly varied, functional movements performed at a high intensity. They are made up of a mix of barbell movements, dumbbells, gymnastics, running, rowing, agility, really anything that is based on moving and almost never repeat the same workout!
Each class is run by a trained instructor, with each movement coached in a competitive yet, fun group atmosphere. While most CrossFit gyms follow a similar class structure, no single gym is the same. CrossFit is not a Franchise but an open business model, where each gym has the ability to coach, train and program to their own style.

World Class Fitness in 100 Words:
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, 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. Regularly learn and play new sports.
