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.
CrossFit programming delivers a fitness regimen that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive.
Workouts of the Day (WOD’s) are designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. In CrossFit we scale work load, intensity, and duration to keep the body from acclimating to a set regimen.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. At Arkaios CrossFit we focus on functional movements that are required to live a full, healthy, and physically independent life.
The Games were created to fill a void — no other true test of fitness existed. From Ironman triathlons to the NFL, all other athletic events neglected to accurately test fitness. Even decathlons, while testing a relatively wide range of abilities, missed vital components of physical fitness.
CrossFit Games events are made up a broad range of functional movements. Functional movements move large loads, long distances, quickly. These movements also form the basis of our exercise program. Make no mistake — the CrossFit Games are designed to test, not train fitness. The goal is to find the fittest athletes, not to produce an easily replicable workout program.
