What is CrossFit
CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.
At CrossFit CE, we work to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness program supported by measurable, observable and repeatable results. This prepares members for any physical contingency—not only for the unknown but for the unknowable, too. Using over two decades of experience and education, our coaches work to motivate you by precisely defining the standards for performance. Through different modalities – a computer program focused toward tracking, keeping accurate scores and records, running a clock – we motivate unprecedented output through relative and absolute metrics at every workout. This data has important value well beyond motivation.
Overall, the aim of CrossFit CE is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness community supported by measurable, observable and repeatable results. The program prepares members for any physical contingency—not only for the unknown but for the unknowable, too. Our specialty is not specializing.
While CrossFit challenges the world’s fittest, the program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual, regardless of experience. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change the program. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind.
