What is CrossFit?

World-Class Fitness in 100 Words:

 “Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.”
~Greg Glassman

CrossFit originated as 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.  It has since evolved to include the everyday fitness enthusiast as a means to improve their overall health and fitness.

Constantly varied, functional movements, executed at a high intensity is the prescription we use to elicit dramatic changes in your work capacity and performance

Constantly Varied: You will rarely do the same workout twice at Reebok CFC Uptown. By doing something different every time you workout you eliminate plateaus and boredom common in traditional programs.  Certain “benchmark” workouts, however, are repeated every so often to measure performance increases.

Functional movements: training that mimics life – running, jumping, throwing, squatting, pulling, pushing.

High intensity: We have a saying, “The clock is always watching”. Most of our workouts are timed.  This allows you to measure your work.  Our goal is to complete the tasks in the quickest amount of time safely.  Other variations of intensity could be increased weight, speed, or even volume.
