At CrossFit CE (Competitive Edge), we love helping people become better by living healthier lives through developing better habits. At the center of this is the CrossFit community. CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movements executed at high intensity. CrossFit CE recognizes that in sport, fitness and in life, preparation for the unknown provides greater adaptability and opportunity for successful outcome and experience. CrossFit CE trains in a specialized modality featuring three distinctive methodologies. We focus on the metabolic pathways for cardiorespiratory fitness and health, to which we divide into aerobic and anaerobic endeavors. We add gymnastics to increase coordination, agility, flexibility, core and trunk strength, neurological completeness and balance. Last, we feature weightlifting for power, speed and strength. By combining the aforementioned in performance training or athletic skill development we are able to increase maximum preparation mentally and physically and mold well rounded athletes capable of greatness.
