What is CrossFit?
THE KEY TO HEALTH AND FITNESS
CrossFit is a lifestyle characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance. The program works for everyone — people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years.
The magic is in the movement. CrossFit workouts are different every day and can be modified to help each athlete achieve their goals. The workouts may be adapted for people at any age and level of fitness.
The CrossFit community at large agrees that food is the ultimate medicine to help you achieve your maximum health. And if you're looking to make gains in the gym, proper nutrition can amplify or diminish the effect of your training efforts. That's why we offer the opportunity to evaluate your current eating habits and create a plan that will put you on track toward your goals.
Your support network. At thousands of affiliates around the world, people encourage and motivate each other in every class as they work toward their goals. Start training with friends. Make new friends. The fun is in the community.
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.
