What Is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a Strength & Conditioning GPP (General Physical Preparedness) program. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. We utilize movements that are functional, natural and safe in the regards to daily life.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience.

By utilizing functional movements and scaling for individuals based on their current level of fitness we can use the same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and competitive athletes one month out from a big event. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our military service men and women, college athletes, and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
