As a definition, CrossFit is “Constantly Varied, Functional Movements performed at High Intensity.” Which is designed to “increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains.”

Crossfit is a clinically tested, community developed, strength and conditioning program. We help mold our clients into better functioning beings though the use of gymnastics (body control), weightlifting (control of external objects), and cardiovascular training, in as many ways as possible. The use of these three components allows us to improve the 10 general physical skills in order to increase their work capacity:

Cardiovascular/respiratory endurance

  • The ability of body systems to gather, process, and deliver oxygen.

Stamina

  • The ability of body systems to process, deliver, store, and utilize energy.

Strength

  • The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply force.

Flexibility

  • The ability to maximize the range of motion at a given joint.

Power

  • The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply maximum force in minimum time.

Speed

  • The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement.

Coordination

  • The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular distinct movement.

Agility

  • The ability to minimize transition time from one movement pattern to another.

Balance

  • The ability to control the placement of the body’s center of gravity in relation to its support base.

Accuracy

  • The ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity.

So what does that mean to you?

By constantly varying the workouts your body is left guessing, requiring it to regularly adapt to the training stimulus. The sessions remain physically and mentally challenging and more importantly, your progress will remain plateau free. Our highly efficient, universally scalable fitness program is the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. The idea is to scale load and intensity; not to change programs. You won’t have to lift weights beyond your level or perform movements beyond your skill set. At CrossFit CDI we provide education about movement, fitness, nutrition, and community. What you will learn/restore/keep from us can help you everywhere in life! “If you can’t squat, you can’t do squat.”
