One of the main reasons why CrossFit is different from any other gym or group class method is because we focus on everything and nothing at the same time. CrossFit incorporates a variety of exercise domains into one training methodology. This means that we have no specified target training. We work on our body weight movements (push ups, pull ups), our power lifting (squats, dead lifts, presses), olympic lifting (cleans, jerks, snatches) and of course our endurance exercises (rowing, running, skipping, biking).
What makes this special is that when we integrate all these different domains into one heart-racing-out-of-your-chest-lung-burning-muscle-fatiguing workout, we elevate ALL aspects of our fitness. We get stronger, we get faster, we get more explosive, we get more flexible. This is the beauty of CrossFit; we don't have to choose what we want to get better at because we are getting better at everything.
For us, getting stronger without losing our speed is equally important as gaining speed without losing our strength. For us, CrossFit has never been something that you can just drop into once in a while and expect to get better. For us, this isn't a gym that you can just show up and blend into the background. For us, our priority is to coach you, to get you faster, stronger and more skillful.
This is why CrossFit is different.
