What is CrossFit?

“Constantly varied, functional movements and high intensity”

CrossFit is a comprehensive strength and conditioning program based on versatile and varied functional movements. The workouts are short and intense and they combine, for example, running, rowing, gymnastics movements, movements with a weight lifting bar, jumping rope and kettlebell movements. The specialty and strength of CrossFit training is its versatility and the fact that it does not only specialize in the development of certain qualities. The goal is to steadily develop all ten important qualities of an athlete:

  1. oxygen uptake
  2. muscular endurance
  3. maximum power
  4. flexibility and mobility
  5. explosive power
  6. speed
  7. coordination
  8. agility
  9. balance
  10. motion accuracy

For who CrossFit is suitable?

The personal training carried out in groups guarantees that CrossFit is perfectly suited as a strength and fitness program for both elite athletes and ordinary fitness enthusiasts. CrossFit exercises are customizable for people of all ages and fitness levels.


The functional movements used in CrossFit training are natural and safe. Functional movement is not training a single muscle, but practicing natural movements and trajectories.

High intensity

CrossFit workouts are short and hard, this guarantees the best results in the shortest possible time. One of the reasons for the popularity of CrossFit training is precisely the fact that you can train really effectively even in a short time. Although the exercises are hard and challenging, they are still suitable for basically healthy people of all ages and fitness levels. The difficulty level of the exercises can be adjusted to suit both top athletes and ordinary family mothers or seniors. In practice, adjusting the exercises means that the prescribed weight can be lightened (also increased) and the number of repetitions can be reduced or increased as needed. In addition, alternative movements have been developed for the most difficult movements.


No training week is the same. The same individual training may be repeated only a few times a year. The movements, equipment, duration, resistance, number of repetitions and environment used in training are constantly varied. Versatile workouts keep training meaningful. CrossFit training was originally developed for professionals whose work is physically demanding, such as police officers, firefighters and professional soldiers, in whose work the survival of people can depend on physical performance in the most unexpected situations.
