WHAT IS CROSSFIT
CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness.
CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
CrossFit Arms would like to congratulate AJ Westfall for achieving ARMS Superstar Status!
1.What was your fitness routine prior to starting CrossFit?
“Globo Gym” 3-4 days a week. That is if I actually went and didn’t go through the McDonald’s drive though.
2. How long have you been CrossFitting?
3. What drew you to CrossFit?
A good friend, AJ Brown tried to get me to come try it for some time. I finally gave in, came to a couple Saturday classes but when I did a weekday WOD, that was it. I was HOOKED!
4. What keeps you coming back?
The people! The family atmosphere is so unbelievable. Also, the drive to keep bettering myself. Pushing harder each lift and always trying to improve everyday. The motivation you get from your fellow athletes is inspiring. Whether you finish first or last, everyone cheers for you.
5. What is your favorite CrossFit movement or workout?
Power cleans and any workout with power cleans in it.
6. What is your least favorite CrossFit movement or workout and why?
Thrusters. Nothing sucks more than thrusters. They have this way of making you hit a “wall” even when it’s a lighter weight, and when you hit the “wall” there is no way to recover.
7. What are your goals in the next 3 months? 6 months? 1 year?
3 Months – Improve gymnastics skills
6 Months – Gain between 10-15 lbs of lean muscle while maintaining a low body percentage
1 Year – To compete in a big competition.
8. What impact has CrossFit had on you and your family?
CrossFit has dramatically changed our lives in every aspect. From the way we eat, to way we feel…both mentally and physically. The feeling of being fit and healthy puts you in a better mood. I can honestly say I will CrossFit for as long as I can. Although… it has impacted some of my friendships in a negative way because they are so sick of me talking about it all the time.
