WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
So, you’ve heard about CrossFit and are wondering if it’s for you? Or maybe you’re relocating to the area and are trying to find a new home gym. Before we tell you about the CrossFit program, I’d like to share our mission statement at CrossFit For Glory:
“Our mission is to improve our members everyday lives outside of the gym through advancements in their health and fitness. Rooted in moral and ethical standards, we are a family oriented community with energetic and supportive coaches that ensure your goals are achieved.”
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let us tell you more:
CrossFit is about utilizing your training to benefit your daily life. Whether your goal is the Olympic Games or to remain independent and live on your own for as long as possible, CrossFit will benefit you.
The words of CrossFit founder, Greg Glassman, best describe this concept:
“People’s needs differ by degree not kind. Olympic athletes and our grandparents both need to fulfill their potentials for cardiorespiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, speed, power, coordination, accuracy, balance, and agility. One is looking for functional dominance the other for functional competence. Competence and dominance manifest and optimize through identical physiological mechanisms. We scale our program by altering rest, load, intensity, etc. while utilizing the same tools (exercises) for everyone whenever possible.”
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program based on constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity.
It develops a strong, balanced, and efficient athletic base upon which sport-specific training is more effective. Regardless of your sport or competitive level, you will feel solid, move efficiently, and recover quickly thereby reducing your risk for injury while increasing overall athleticism.
The full range functional exercises utilized in CrossFit programming are effective because they translate into movements performed in everyday life not simply athletics.
The movements often expose and rehabilitate old injuries and compensations, leading to a strengthening of that “unstable shoulder” and “bad knee”. From fall prevention to the reduction of osteoporosis, our CrossFit program will get you moving the way nature intended and improve your overall health.
Lastly, we’ve built a community of people that will support one another in your goals, cheer each other on during workouts, and in the simplest form – know your name when you walk through the door.
