Constantly varied. Your workouts will change every day with different skills, different equipment, different time frames and different modalities (cardio, gymnastics and weightlifting).
Functional movements. Everyday movements like squats, deadlift (picking up an object from the floor), pushing, pulling, jumping, running, rowing, pressing (pushing an object over your head).
High Intensity. Expect to be pushed.
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.
But what makes CrossFit really different to your traditional gym is the Community.
At CrossFit Across like it should be in any CrossFit box, we want to build a real family feel so that every body feels welcome and encouraged.
A workout isn’t finished until the last athlete has finished!
