What is CrossFit?
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing.
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.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed our workouts posted daily on this site and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.
“I can’t do that!” “You guys are crazy!” “CrossFit is too intense!” We get it… CrossFit looks intimidating from the outside and usually sends people running. We are afraid of what we don’t know. It’s human nature to fear the unknown. But, think about any moment in time where you accomplished a task that made you feel great - was it challenging? Did it pull you out of your comfort zone and push you to be better? Sure it did! Why? Because most things that are worth doing require a level of virtuosity, energy, and commitment. CrossFit will prepare you for any task that life demands, both physically and mentally. It will make you stronger and more confident in all facets of life. Don’t believe it? We dare you to try…
THE SPORT OF FITNESS HAS ARRIVED
What should I expect at my first CrossFit workout?
Your first workout at Reebok CrossFit Velocity will be a fun and challenging experience.
Do I need prior experience to take classes?
No. New members participate in our “On-Ramp” program and then transition into any scheduled WOD they’d like.
Do I have to be in shape to take CrossFit classes?
No. Really. There is a common misconception that CrossFit is for elite athletes. The truth is that it is for everyone.
Should I warm up and stretch before class?
We always have a warm up session before the Workout of the Day. If you find yourself with a little extra time
Do you recommend training daily?
No. Maximum benefits are derived from intensity and recovery. We offer a complete health and fitness program, and so we recommend that you take time to recover so that you perform your best at every session.
What can I expect after my first CrossFit workout?
You will feel successful and part of a community of athletes, many of whom you did NOT expect to be CrossFitters.
What makes CrossFit different than other gyms?
CrossFit is about variance and adaptation. We “program” our workouts for General Physical Preparedness, or GPP. We don’t have leg days, back- and bi- days, or cardio days.
What are some of the exercises/movements we do?
CrossFit teaches 9 Foundational Movements. The mastery of these 9 movements correlate directly to the efficiency of the exercises performed during your workouts and transfer to the development of other skills you see often in WODs.
