Early on, the goal was to get some of the fittest to engage in CrossFit because they were essentially the tip of the spear. We collected data on how these people train, eat, and recover; and CrossFit’s ability to improve their general physical fitness. Emotional and social health also improved as more people joined in on what was a “shared suffering” of tough workouts. Today CrossFit has over 10,000 affiliates across the world and although the tip of the spear is inspiring, the goal of CrossFit is clear: improve fitness for everyone. Fitness is the opposite of sickness, and both can be plotted as extremes on the same continuum. In the middle of this continuum is wellness and all these are snapshots of health. Data suggests that being better at thrusters and pull-ups, and working on running and lifting directly correlates to better blood pressure and triglycerides.
Starting CrossFit is a path to health. The evidence is showing that the CrossFit methodology: constantly varied, functional movements, executed at high intensity generates and drives health and performance markers in the right direction. The benefits of the CrossFit methodology include burning body fat and improving general skills like cardiovascular respiratory endurance, stamina, flexibility, agility, balance, and more. The benefits are tightly connected to the way we train. Form follows function: it is about training what the body is built to do and try to do it better every day.
