What Is CrossFit And Who Is The First CrossFitter
What Is CrossFit
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program consisting mainly of a mix of aerobic exercise, gymnastics, running, rowing, calisthenics (body weight exercises), and Olympic weightlifting using fitness programs that involve high intensity functional movements.
Who Is The First CrossFitter
CrossFit first founded in Santa Cruz, California, United States (2000) by Greg Glassman and Lauren Jenai.
CrossFitters move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort.
The "CrossFit Games" have been held every summer since 2007. Athletes at the Games compete in workouts they learn about only hours beforehand, sometimes including surprise elements that are not part of the typical CrossFit regimen. Past examples include a rough-water swim, a softball throw, and a pegboard climb. The Games are styled as a venue for determining the "Fittest on Earth," where competitors should be "ready for anything".
