What is CrossFit?

CrossFit was created by Greg Glassman in 2000. At its core, it’s designed to improve health and fitness through high intensity functional movements. Parts of the CrossFit regimen focus on what Glassman calls the core movements. These movements give you the most bang for your buck, since they involve the muscles in our bodies that are used to move large objects over long distances in short amounts of time. These workouts include elements of many other types of fitness programs or sports. These include weightlifting, running, rowing, gymnastics, and many more.

It’s time for you to feel healthy, strong, and motivated—about your workout and about your life. CrossFit Rock Hill is here to help you achieve both. Contact us today to learn more or visit our Rock Hill, SC gym during one of our scheduled free introductory sessions.
