DEFINING CROSSFIT, PART 1: FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS


CrossFit.com has begun a 3-part series about defining what CrossFit is as an exercise program. At Bell City CrossFit, we have adopted the CrossFit philosophy as a foundation to the programming and coaching we provide, as we buy-in to its ability to effectively address a vast array of Member goals. From fat loss, to muscle building, to improved cardiovascular function CrossFit addresses them all in a measurable way that can be tracked over time.


As Part-1 of this series describes, CrossFit uses functional movements, “these movements are found everywhere in human behavior and arise spontaneously as a response to life”. When we use the hashtag #LifeReady this is what we mean.

As noted:

“These are the movements life demands — whether we practice them or not — which makes them essential to independent living. When we lose the ability to perform functional movements, we also lose the ability to live independently. This is called decrepitude, and by practicing these essential movements, we can stave off that outcome and keep ourselves and our loved ones out of the nursing home.”


Quite simply, the CrossFit philosophy works to create a buffer against disease, illness and the inevitable effects of aging.
