What exactly is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a fitness regimen that functions as both an exercise philosophy and a competitive sport. Created by Greg Glassman in 2000, it blends aspects of high-intensity interval training, weightlifting and powerlifting, jumping, gymnastics, calisthenics, and other exercises.
Basically, this results in a very intense and complete workout program that quickly produces results on your entire body. CrossFit workouts demand a lot of energy, so proper nutrition is very important. To guarantee the effectiveness of your training, it’s also crucial that you commit to healthy eating.
