What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a grassroots fitness movement based out of Santa Cruz, California. It is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist. The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

Quote of the Day: "Less Chatter, More Barbell." 


Discussion: A few new Gym Rules: 

- If you PR a lift or WOD, someone else has to break down your bar or WOD area! Go YOU! Lets celebrate PR's and be good sports to our fellow athletes!
- If you want to continue using tape on the pull-up bars, you are now responsible for taping them and removing the tape after the workout.  We are spreading WAY too many germs by leaving used tape on the bars.  If tape is left on the bars, we will no longer allow it (excludes Dirty South Bars) 

Thanks Crew!
