What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a comprehensive health-and-fitness program designed for universal scalability; meaning so long as you’re committed, you can get started regardless of experience level. Rather than change programs, we change our loads and intensity to meet the demands of everyone from the elderly to champion cage fighters. The CrossFit system is built on constantly varied functional movements at high intensity.

 

CrossFit works for anyone and everyone!!!

CrossFit Boot Camp is a high intensity core strength and conditioning program that delivers GUARANTEED RESULTS. This one-hour workout will challenge your body in a variety of ways. Our program focuses on all ten components of optimal physical fitness; endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.

 

Why we choose CrossFit…

Who really relies on the results of their fitness to preserve their lives? Soldiers, Police, Fire Fighters. What is being adopted throughout the Special Forces communities, Secret Service, U.S. Marshals, FBI, ATF, Police Departments, Fire Departments and many other people who rely on fitness to preserve their lives? CrossFit. When it comes to an endeavor where being weak costs you your life, they do CrossFit. Most of us do not require that level of fitness in our daily lives.

The harder we pull toward the elite side of the continuum, the less close we are to the nursing home. If teaching a 57 year old woman to dead lift 200 plus pounds seems extreme, think of the grandmother who can’t pick up her 20lb. grandson. Which place do you want to be in?

 

Very few of us will get to the level of being on the CrossFit website for some outstanding physical feat. We CAN all work diligently to achieve the best effort and get results our age and ability allow us to achieve. All the training we do at Twisted “A” CrossFit is influenced largely by CrossFit principles. Whether it is Basic Training, Boot Camp, CrossFit, Self-Defense, or Private Training, much of what we do is based on functional exercises, executed at high intensity that are varied to the point of near randomness. Why? Our goal is to create people who are capable in ALL aspects of fitness.
