Both from Greg Glassman, CEO/Founder of CrossFit
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.
Everyone loves doing wall balls during the WOD!
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.
We train in these domains by using the following equipment: climbing ropes, pull-up bars, kettle bells and barbells, jump ropes, rowers, and gymnastics rings…just to name our favorites.
