CrossFit is THE most effective fitness program on the planet. When I say fitness I mean a program that is all encompassing. crossfit touches on all 10 fitness skills (Cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, Accuracy) CrossFit combines: weightlifting, powelifting, olympic lifting, gymnastics, running, rowing and jumproping into one unbelievably effective program. I am not saying crossfit will make you a gymnast, a champion olympic lifter or a master bodybuilder. What I am saying is that Crossfit will get you more fit than any other routine out there, including the three I just mentioned. You will be ready for anything that comes your way. ANYTHING!
