What is CrossFit?
Constantly Varied, Functional Movement, performed at a High Intensity.  Head over to the About WCCF page for more details.

What does ‘Constantly Varied, Functional Movement, performed at a High Intensity’ mean?
It means that the CrossFit program consists of exercising 5 or 6 days a week, always varying the movements that are performed. And the movements (exercises) performed in CrossFit are ‘functional,’ which means that they are natural movements that the human body was designed to perform. These functional movements will improve your ability to perform the daily tasks of your job and life. ‘High Intensity’ means that once an athlete can consistently performs functional movements with the proper technique, we increase the intensity of the workout (by increasing load, rate, volume, etc). But ‘intensity’ is a relative term. ‘High intensity’ will not be the same for everyone. We scale WODs so that each athlete is performing at a relative intensity to their fitness level.
