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 Krystal Conkling for achieving ARMS Superstar Status!
1.What was your fitness routine prior to starting CrossFit?
My fitness prior to starting CrossFit was playing basketball and lifting weights at the gym 5 days a week.
2. How long have you been CrossFitting?
I have been CrossFitting for a year and about 5 months.
3. What drew you to CrossFit?
The main thing that drew me to CrossFit was seeing Luci’s results and her stomach. I wanted a stomach like her! Then after the first day of trying it out I was hooked!
4. What keeps you coming back?
What keeps me coming back is how I feel after a workout, the results I’ve gotten from working, the variety of the workouts and especially all the CrossFit ARMS family! I love how we all motivate and push each other when we don’t think we can go anymore! I was extremely bored with just lifting weights and I love that CrossFit is always something different everyday!
5. What is your favorite CrossFit movement or workout?
My favorite CrossFit movements are wall balls, front squats, back squats, deadlifts and now that I can do them better handstand push-ups.
6. What is your least favorite CrossFit movement or workout and why?
My least favorite are strict shoulder press and chest to bars because I can barely do a chest to bar and the strict shoulder press is really hard since I can’t use my legs. And of course burpees because they suck!
7. What are your goals in the next 3 months? 6 months? 1 year?
In the next 3 months my goals are: to place in The Wanting series competition,
walk farther with handstand walks and improve my running. In 6 months my goals are: to get better at chest to bars and link 90 double unders. In 1 year my goals are: bar muscle up and compete in more competitions and place.
8. What impact has CrossFit had on you and your family?
CrossFit has had a huge impact on my family and my work family! At first my mom wasn’t too happy with me that I was making a lifestyle change to paleo but once she saw that I lost about 30lbs in 30 days she has started to eat better. My sister is going to start the 30 day challenge on Monday as well. My work family loves the CrossFit workouts as well. We have been working out for about 13 weeks together and they are seeing great results as well!
I am so glad that Luci introduced me to CrossFit ARMS!
