What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a functional and holistic workout. It combines constantly varying, functional movements that are performed at high intensity.

Routine is the enemy. That's why you face new challenges every day.

It is intensive - the intensity allows you to build up a high level of fitness in a short time.
