What Is Crossfit
CrossFit = Variety + Functionality + Intensity
Does the thought of the average workout bore you to death? Are you not getting the results you want? Ask any of our members, and they’ll tell you “This workout sucks! But it works… and it’s kinda fun!” There’s nothing like training with a group of friends just like you.
CrossFit isn’t your normal workout routine, it’s a sport in itself. But it’s designed so that a 29 year old Fireman can bring his Grandmother to the gym and do the same basic workout, scaled to each one’s ability level. The needs of the human body are all the same, except Grandma doesn’t need quite the level of difficulty that a Fireman needs.
We operate on principles exactly opposite from the normal “big box” type gym. In the traditional gym, their best customers are the ones who pay for a year’s membership, show up three times, and never come back. Here at CrossFit North Myrtle Beach, we don’t want you to pay us to not show up, the only way we succeed is by helping you get into better shape than you ever thought possible, then bring your friends.
Each and every individual at CrossFit North Myrtle Beach gets professional coaching to ensure they are safely and efficiently performing movements correctly, so that they can develop themselves as effectively as possible.
Any fitness program must be evaluated by three criteria:
1) Safety – Avoiding injury in the gym, AND preventing injury while doing daily activities.
2) Effectiveness – The results it produces.
3) Efficiency – How long it takes to produce those results.
Come measure us by those three standards. We can just about guarantee we’ll kick anyone else’s butt on all three.
Just so you know, in our place, you won’t find any plasma TV’s so you can watch a show while doing a “workout”. If you can pay attention to a television while you’re doing a workout, you’re probably wasting your time. Obviously, we don’t subscribe to the “30 minutes of light cardio” theory. We wish it worked better than Crossfit, because it’s a heck of a lot easier, but the real world doesn’t work that way. We’re just thankful what we do here is fun.
Crossfit in 100 Words
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc. hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
