Love it or hate it, CrossFit has found its place in the fitness world. Not sure what you think about it? Before you decide, try one of these workouts.

CrossFit requires a certain level of "crazy." Not serial killer crazy, but crazy in that hardcore, "won't quit 'til I'm dead, and even after death I'll burst from my coffin and train like a freaking machine," kind of way.

Simply put, CrossFit is a fitness program that challenges you to break out of your routine.  Stasis is the enemy and patterns are to be avoided at all cost. Forget about sets and splits, CrossFit works the body as a whole. Just as an athlete would spend some time working on drills and then put those movements to work by playing their sport, CrossFit encourages proficient movement patterns by performing functional movements with relatively high intensity.


If you're a CrossFit virgin, you've probably never heard of a WOD, or workout of the day. Basically, you can head to a CrossFit gym or check out Crossfit online to grab a complete daily workout.

Because CrossFit workouts can be so brutal, I sometimes feel damn near silly for almost killing myself three times per week.  I started Crossfit Training in November.  It has been 3 months.  I have seen the difference in my body, speed and stamina.  I am still worker harder to improve.
