Crossfit’s conception and belief is based on the fact that fitness is best demonstrated by a balance in 10 general physical skills:
Cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, accuracy.
An absence of any one or any two of those physical skills can result in, as Glassman says; “…loss of game, mission, life…”
Those required skills are necessary to not only balance our complete fitness, but also better prepare us for life’s routine (carrying bags of groceries, lifting/picking up and carrying our children, job-related physical duties) and life’s unpredictability (pushing a stalled car out of traffic, helping a neighbor move heavy equipment/furniture).
Building a foundation of strength and power through Olympic and Power lifts will not only positively impact our metabolic chain, resulting in improved Crossfit performances, but it will also have a direct, constructive and encouraging effect in our daily lives.
If you have been intimidated by these lifts before and have avoided them, come in and let one of our trainers show you how to do them properly and you will soon realize how important these functional movements truly are and how they apply to your every day life.
