What Is CrossFit?

OUR CREED

I am a CrossFit Allatoona athlete. I am devoted to the constant pursuit of excellence both here in my gym and wherever I go. I will train hard and give my best effort in every workout. No matter where I am in my fitness journey, I remain a constant work in progress. I know that health and fitness are not unattainable goals available only to an elite few. I have the power to change my mind and my body to more nearly reflect the man or woman that I am on the inside. As I transform myself I will encourage my family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances. I will share the knowledge that I gain to bless everyone in my circle of influence.
I will treat this gym and everything in it as if it were my own. I will wear the callouses on my hands and scrapes on my shins as badges of honor. I will never cheat a repetition or round in any workout. If I ever miss a time cap or fail a lift I will not hang my head in shame – the defeats that I encounter will only make me stronger. I will honor fallen service members and their families by sharing in the temporary suffering associated with “hero WOD’s.”
If I ever finish first, I will become the first cheerleader for the athletes behind me. If I ever finish last I will not be dismayed. I will encourage and help the other athletes in this bond to the best of my ability. I will welcome all newcomers warmly and make them feel at home. I affirm by my signature that I will be a man or woman of honor, courage and commitment and exemplify the tenants put forward in this bond to the best of my ability.

 

What Is CrossFit?

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.

Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
