What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is 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.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
Who is CrossFit For?
Everyone can do CrossFit regardless of age, injuries and current fitness levels. The program is modified for each person to help him or her safely become healthier and fitter. Grandparents and Olympians can perform modified versions of the same general workout.
CrossFit – The Key To Health and Fitness
CrossFit is a lifestyle characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance. The program works for everyone — people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years.
The magic is in the movement. CrossFit workouts are different every day and can be modified to help each athlete achieve their goals. The workouts may be adapted for people at any age and level of fitness. A workout routine is posted in the gym and online for each day, we refer to this as a “Workout Of The Day” or WOD.
A CrossFit Lifestyle
Off the carbs, off the couch. The CrossFit lifestyle — a combination of sound nutrition and exercise — is the key to fitness and long-term health.
A CrossFit Community
CrossFit has an amazing support network. At our CrossFit gyms in Carlsbad you will join a group of friends who support each other in reaching their individual goals. When you have a team of people who believe in you and support you the motivation to keep making process is astounding. The fun of CrossFit is in the community.
