What is CrossFit?
#CrossFit is a workout program, a culture, and a community. The mission of CrossFit is to “build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency—not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable.”
CrossFit participants complete a workout of the day (WOD) either solo or with a trainer and a group of fellow exercisers at a designated Crossfit #gym, also called a “box.” The #workouts tend to be short, extremely intense, and engage full body, military-style exercises.
For #participants who are interested, #nutritionadvice is offered on the Cross Fit website where the suggestion is to follow either a 40-30-30 nutrition plan (40 percent #carbohydrate, 30 percent protein, 30 percent fat) or to use the Paleo Diet to reach their performance and body fat goals.
