We're re-writing On Ramp, trimming the noise, streamlining the delivery, and changing things up for the next group who begins our 28th offering beginning September 17th. We'll be including a little more "theory" to answer some of the most common questions about CrossFit throughout the month.
Space is limited to 8 people in each of the 6am and 6pm classes. Sign up here!
A really nice article on CrossFit that is aimed at the CF curious. It presents what we do in a non scary, everyone-can-do-it light, which is correct.
In almost every way, CrossFit has turned the conventional wisdom of fitness on its head. This is largely because the big picture in CrossFit is overall well-being, achieved through nutrition and fitness, coupled with a philosophy of incremental improvement and sense of community.
With its prescribed method of "constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement", CrossFit's approach is not to specialize, but to improve each person's competency at all physical activities. This is achieved through carefully programmed Workouts of the Day or "WODs" that combine Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics (rings, pull-ups), and running, rowing, biking and swimming -- performed in a high intensity sprint that lasts anywhere from an excruciating five minutes to an agonizing 30 minutes. Especially grueling "Hero WODs" are held periodically to honor fallen heroes and remind CrossFitters to think beyond themselves.
