CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. Our program delivers fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and on average, punish the specialist. The workouts are known as WODs (workout of the day) and combine diverse movements and energy pathways. Movements come from diverse backgrounds like power-lifting, Olympic-lifting, gymnastics, cardio-training, and emphasize functionality over muscle isolation.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders, and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed these workouts and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms, and homes.
