It is designed to make you not specialize in anything, but to be good in everything. The use of anaerobic workouts improves your anaerobic fitness and aerobic fitness. If you only do aerobic workouts like long, slow runs then you are only improving your aerobic fitness in addition to losing muscle.

Talk to anyone who has been doing CrossFit for a while and they will attest to the effectiveness of these types of workouts. CrossFit is all about real people who are getting great results. Better yet, CrossFit is for everyone!
We train our athletes in gymnastics from rudimentary to advanced movements garnering great capacity at controlling the body both dynamically and statically while maximizing strength to weight ratio and flexibility. We also place a heavy emphasis on Olympic Weightlifting having seen this sport’s unique ability to develop an athletes’ explosive power, control of external objects, and mastery of critical motor recruitment patterns. And finally, we encourage and assist our athletes to explore a variety of sports as a vehicle to express and apply their fitness.
