What is CrossFit?

Forging elite fitness

CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness.

CrossFit is a “broad, general, and inclusive” core strength and conditioning program that combines weightlifting, gymnastics/calisthenics, and “cardio” into a timed or scored workout. Whether your goal is to lose weight, gain lean muscle, increase endurance, or simply look good, KillBox CrossFit will meet your needs.

CrossFit workouts enhance performance in the ten recognized general physical skills: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. You are as fit as you are competent in each of these ten skills.

The four key concepts of CrossFit that make the workouts safe, effective, and fun are:

CONSTANTLY VARIED – The WOD (workout of day) is different each day, which makes workouts fun and exciting. Routine is the enemy.

FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS – Defined as moving large loads, quickly, over long distances. Movements include but are not limited to: Powerlifting, Olympic Lifting, Strongman (odd objects), plyometrics, gymnastics, and metabolic conditioning “cardio”.

HIGH INTENSITY –Workouts are designed to produce a lot of power in a short amount of time. Intensity is the single most important component in achieving any desirable fitness goal. Heart Rate is not used as a measure of intensity.

UNIVERSALLY SCALABLE – All ages can do CrossFit! We scale load, intensity, and movements to accommodate all ages and fitness levels.
