CrossFit is for people of all fitness levels, from the complete beginner to the advanced athlete. Your needs and the advanced athlete’s differ by degree not kind. Increased power, strength, cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, flexibility, stamina, coordination, agility, and balance are each important to the world’s best athletes and to our grandparents, maintaining optimal health and functional independence. If you think that strength isn’t important, consider that strength loss is what puts people in nursing homes.
CrossFit is unique in its universal scalability, meaning two people at completely different fitness levels can perform the same workout using movements best suited to each of their individual capabilities.
