Crossfit...Is this for me?

Absolutely! Your needs and the Olympic athlete’s
differ by degree not kind. Increased power, strength,
cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, flexibility,
stamina, coordination, agility, balance, and coordination
are each important to the world’s best athletes and
to our grandparents. The amazing truth is that the
very same methods that elicit optimal response in the
Olympic or professional athlete will optimize the same
response in the elderly. Of course, we can’t load your
grandmother with the same squatting weight that we’d
assign an Olympic skier, but they both need to squat
In fact, squatting is essential to maintaining functional
independence and improving fitness. Squatting is
just one example of a movement that is universally
valuable and essential yet rarely taught to any but the
most advanced of athletes. This is a tragedy. Through
painstakingly thorough coaching and incremental load
assignment CrossFit has been able to teach anyone
who can care for themselves to perform safely and
with maximum efficacy the same movements typically
utilized by professional coaches in elite and certainly
exclusive environments.
