Starting a new fitness ritual (don’t like the work ‘routine’) can be a daunting task. Navigating through a strange place with ever stranger machines can be overwhelming for most. Those feelings can be multiplied with CrossFit. Yes, we’ve eliminated the skinny high schoolers working the front desk, and the overbearing sales men with bad hair and worse tattoos. However, can any workout system dubbed, “The hardest workout ever” be inviting? Well, Yes! Let me explain… the term used within CrossFit is “universal scaleability”, meaning any workout put together can be ramped up or down depending on individual fitness needs.
The founder of CrossFit put it best when he said, “The needs of the elderly and professional athletes vary by degree, not kind. Where one needs functional competency to maintain independence, the other needs functional mastery to maintain dominance…We scale for ability we don’t change programs.”
In addition, we have taped into the roots of the crossfit revolution and started posting every workout just as the Glassman”s did in the early years. Now our board will have “Fit…SupperFit…CrossFit” tags. You should know what workout is the fanny kicker!!!
Here is a video showing how scaling can maintain the workout stimulus while still adjusting for individual fitness needs
