We are very excited to be bringing CrossFit training to our Energia community. There is lots of information floating around out there regarding CrossFit - accurate & otherwise. In an effort to inform, excite, and dispel rumours we will be highlighting some facts concerning CrossFit over the next several months.
- The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general, and inclusive fitness. There is no "specializing" in CrossFit. By constantly varying all training parameters - the movements, the equipment and the duration - trainees are prepared for the unknown and the unknowable.
- The greatest gains in physical ability come from training at high intensity. Intensity can be defined as power, and the ability to generate power allows trainees to move large loads over long distances quickly.
- The methodology that drives CrossFit is entirely empirical. It is paramount to observe improvement over time, and the only way to do this is to use measurable, observable and repeatable facts, or data - also known as evidence-based fitness. CrossFit workouts are always prescribed, measured, and recorded. This approach - the sport of fitness - harnesses the natural camaraderie, competition, and fun of sport, and yields an intensity that cannot be matched by other means.
