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 Joe Devlin for achieving ARMS Superstar Status!
1.What was your fitness routine prior to starting CrossFit?
I had been in and out of the gym for years. About a year before joining CrossFit, I received a Bowflex as a gift. I was a weekend warrior with it and never really got any results.
2. How long have you been CrossFitting?
I have been CrossFitting for 8 months now.
3. What drew you to CrossFit?
A friend from work always talked about how great it was, which got my interest. I made all the usual excuses before giving it a try. Finally, I decided that I wanted to try something different and get in better shape.
4. What keeps you coming back?
Results and feeling good are what keeps me coming back. Also, the atmosphere and the people. I really enjoy CrossFit. Honestly, I think I’m addicted because it’s all I think about.
5. What is your favorite CrossFit movement or workout?
My favorite movement is muscle-ups – ring and bar. A friend once told me that you’re not a badass CrossFitter until you can do a ring muscle-up. Now that I can do it…I don’t feel like a badass, but it’s an awesome feeling to have accomplished that because it was one of my first goals after joining.
6. What is your least favorite CrossFit movement or workout and why?
My least favorite movement is overheard squats because it’s an awkward and uncomfortable movement. Also, running because I’ve never been a fan of it.
7. What are your goals in the next 3 months? 6 months? 1 year?
My goals for the next year are to get stronger with all of my lifts. By this time next year, I want to be able to power clean 185 lbs, snatch 135 lbs and back squat 225 lbs.
8. What impact has CrossFit had on you and your family?
Since doing CrossFit I’m happier and fitter than I have ever been. Now that I have built up my endurance, I can breathe easier. I actually enjoy family bike rides and hikes. I’m a lot more active now. And…to top it off, my son just started in CrossFit for Kids.
