About CrossFit

Blue Ox is excited to be able to offer CrossFit, as one of its fitness classes. Many of you may have heard of CrossFit, or may have perceptions about CrossFit. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the program, and will be even happier to have you try out some classes. In the meantime, here is some more information:

CrossFit is strength and conditioning system that biases towards constantly varied, functional movements executed at high intensity. CrossFit delivers a fitness program which is broad, general and inclusive.

CrossFit is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any individual committed to excellence in fitness regardless of experience or current fitness level. Our routines are used for elderly individuals who may have heart disease as well as current and past CFP members who are members of elite Military units. The load and intensity of our workouts (WOD’s) are scaled for the individual, but the workout remains the same for all.

CrossFit is the principle 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. This training style is not only the most beneficial for the elite athletes, but is the best overall way to maintain fit and healthy lifestyle for the general population.

CrossFit has been called “The Sport of Fitness” because it re-introduces personal athletic achievement and performance to training which many health clubs don’t offer. The mindset at the start of each workout is to be stronger, move faster, more efficiently, with better form than ever. This is why even after years of training CrossFit style, scores and times in workouts continue to drop and athletes continue to improve. Its hard, fun, exciting, challenging and will push you to be your absolute best!
