What is CrossFit?

Simply put, it’s exercise that focuses on the movements you use every day. It's fitness that makes sense. These are the ways your body was meant to move: pushing, pulling, sitting, standing, jumping, running. 

CrossFit can use confusing terminology at times, but at its core, it’s very basic. We practice moving better inside the gym so we can move better in our everyday lives. 

That might be a sport you play, a weakness you’re trying to improve, or just wanting to be able to move better for things like yard work and playing with your kids or grandkids. 

Regardless of your reason for wanting to move better, or move more, we can help. All the movements we do at Holy City CrossFit can be adjusted appropriately to your current fitness level. You do not need to "be in shape" to do CrossFit. Rather, CrossFit exists to help you get in shape and get more out of your everyday life.

If you're bored with your routine, chances are your body is, too! CrossFit uses a combination of strength traininggymnastics, and conditioning to keep your body guessing, and keep you interested. 

At Holy City Crossfit, every day is something different. Your body never adapts to the work it’s doing, because we keep changing it up.
