What is CrossFit
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program developed by Coach Greg Glassman through years of training experience. The philosophy of CrossFit is taken the best exercises and functional movements that produced the best results and develop a world class training system for the average person. This is what makes CrossFit unique because it uses functional movements (real life movements) scaled to meet the needs of any fitness level. CrossFit by design is broad, general, and inclusive. Its specialty is in not specializing, and the workouts elicit maximal neuro-endocrine response from your body.
So whatever your fitness need are form losing weight to doing a pull-up CrossFit Clay Center is your best choice to meet your goals. CrossFit has also been called the “Sport of Fitness” because we constantly measure our ability and compete in our workouts. CrossFit is for any person that engages in some fitness regimen. It inspires those who train to think of new, fun, and creative methods for training. And in much the same way as the Olympics inspires us to think and dream of what we are capable of when pushed, CrossFit offers this concept to a greater array of people who may not be as gifted in one particular area as an Olympian or professional athlete but they still have the drive for self-improvement. Come give CrossFit Clay Center a try!
CrossFit, a trademark of CrossFit Inc., is a strength and conditioning program with the aim of improving, among other things, muscular strength, cardio-respiratory endurance, and flexibility. It advocates a perpetually changing mix of aerobic exercise, gymnastics (body weight exercises), and Olympic weight lifting. CrossFit Inc. describes its strength and conditioning program as “constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity across broad modal and time domains," with the stated goal of improving fitness, which it defines as "work capacity across broad time and modal domains."
Hour-long classes at affiliated gyms, or "boxes", typically include a warm-up, a skill development segment, the high-intensity "workout of the day" (or WOD), and a period of individual or group stretching. Some boxes also often have a strength focused movement(s) prior to the WOD. Performance on each WOD is often scored and/or ranked to encourage competition and to track individual progress.
