CrossFit is defined as that which optimises fitness – constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity. CrossFit also refers to the communal aspect of athletes who do train together and is a key component of why it is so effective.

The CrossFit Prescription For Fitness

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar
Keep intake levels that will support exercise but not body fat
Practice and train major lifts: deadlift, clean, squat, presses, clean & jerk 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
