What's this 'CrossFit' thing that everyone keeps talking about?
Have you ever wondered, what is this ‘CrossFit’ thing that everyone keeps talking about? If so, don’t worry…you’re not the only one!
What is Crossfit? CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that combines weightlifting, powerlifting, plyometrics, gymnastics, sprinting and kettlebell and medicine-ball training, CrossFit workouts are designed to increase strength, stamina, power, flexibility, speed, agility, balance, coordination and endurance. Also, given its universal scalability, CrossFit allows virtually anyone and everyone to enjoy the benefits a broad, general and all-inclusive fitness program. So, what does this really mean for the average Joe and the average Jane? Given the fact that the vast majority of us are not currently on the player roster for an NFL, NBA or MLB team, can we really survive a CrossFit workout? The answer, without a doubt, is…YES! CrossFit Country offers a wildly enjoyable, intense and challenging workout, complete with functional movement training and personal coaching. Most importantly, Crossfit Country provides a rewarding, highly motivating and community-based fitness experience for all ages, shapes and sizes.

Regardless of whether you’re a CrossFit newbie or a seasoned veteran, the wide-range of modified movements and overall program scalability can be applied across the board. This makes the completion of any exercise extremely feasible for any individual. So, are you ready to give CrossFit a chance? The incredibly talented trainers at CrossFit Country are certainly ready to prove they can help anyone accomplish their personal fitness goals and reach their maximum athletic potential!
Did You Know…?
- Crossfit 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.
- Crossfit delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and all-inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Whether you’re training for combat, survival, sports, or life in general, you will experience success.
- The Crossfit program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. The same routine used to train an elderly individual with heart disease can then be modified for a cage fighter preparing for a televised bout. How? We can scale each workout accordingly (in both load and intensity).
At Crossfit Country, we strive to provide our clients, both beginner and veteran, with a wide variety of fresh and unique WODs that will challenge the body, as well as the mind. We want to keep you on your toes, so that you’ll always be wondering…what’s in store for tomorrow?
With CrossFit Country, you will have the guidance and motivational presence of our elite trainers and coaches. You will complete WODs that allow your body to adapt and perform new movements. All you need to do is show up and let our trainers do the rest!
Each Crossfit workout is performed in a small group setting and can be scaled to accommodate all levels of fitness. This type of group-based training is an outstanding way to push your body further than you ever thought possible! Plus, since most workouts rarely exceed 45 minutes in length, you can always find time to complete a WOD, no matter how busy your schedule!
It is important to note that the Crossfit program is centered on functional movement exercises. Functional-based movements mimic the stressors and movement patterns placed on your body by the demands of everyday life. CrossFit-style workouts are designed to improve our level of life-based fitness, rather than our gym-based strength. What we do on the training floor should crossover seamlessly into our everyday life. The idea being that we build a foundation of fitness that will last a lifetime!
