So that’s everything from 2022 CrossFit Games Day 1.

What is CrossFit?

“CrossFit is a lifestyle characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance.

The program works for everyone — people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years.”

What are CrossFit Workouts?

“The magic is in the movement. CrossFit workouts are different every day and can be modified to help each athlete achieve their goals. The workouts may be adapted for people at any age and level of fitness.”

What is the CrossFit Community?

“Your support network. At thousands of affiliates around the world, people encourage and motivate each other in every class as they work toward their goals. Start training with friends. Make new friends. The fun is in the community.”

Is CrossFit for me?

“Yes. Everyone can do CrossFit regardless of age, injuries and current fitness levels. The program is modified for each person to help him or her safely become healthier and fitter. Grandparents and Olympians can perform modified versions of the same general workout.”

Do I need to be in shape to start CrossFit?

“No. CrossFit is the program that will get you in shape. No matter what your current fitness level is, you can start CrossFit.

As you become fitter, workouts will become more challenging. Every workout is designed to help you succeed, improve fitness and move you toward your goals.”

Is CrossFit safe?

“Yes. CrossFit training is very safe, and sitting on your couch is actually incredibly dangerous.

In CrossFit boxes, credentialed trainers provide precise instructions and coaching to help people move safely and efficiently, helping people avoid all the diseases that come from inactivity, obesity and poor nutrition.”

What about Nutrition?

“To accomplish your goals faster, we recommend you eat a variety of healthy foods in quantities that support fitness training but not body fat.

By avoiding excessive amounts of refined carbohydrates and measuring your intake of protein, carbohydrates and fat, you will see dramatic, measurable increases in health.”

How will CrossFit affect my health?

“CrossFit LLC holds a uniquely elegant solution to the greatest problem facing the world today: chronic disease.

The CrossFit program—constantly varied high-intensity functional movement coupled with meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar—can give you a pass on chronic disease.

If you are not sick, know that fitness provides a great margin of protection against the ravages of time and disease. Fitness is and should be “super-wellness.” To improve or preserve your health, do CrossFit.”

How will I get fitter with CrossFit?

“CrossFit improves general physical preparedness (GPP). We have designed our program to elicit as broad an adaptational response as possible.

CrossFit is not a specialized fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of 10 fitness domains: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.

CrossFit was developed to enhance an individual’s competency at all physical tasks. People who do CrossFit are prepared for all challenges, whether they come in the gym, on a playing field or as part of daily life.”

Where can I do CrossFit?

“You can use CrossFit.com resources to do CrossFit anywhere—even with minimal equipment. To work with a credentialed coach in a dedicated, fully equipped facility, find a local CrossFit affiliate.”

Where can I find CrossFit workouts?

“A workout of the day—WOD—can be found here. Each day’s workout post is accompanied by carefully selected resources and reference materials that will help you become healthier and fitter.”

“Use a weight that’s manageable for you or use a percentage of the weight prescribed. Replace movements you can’t do with those you can. For more information on scaling and modifying workouts, review the “CrossFit Level 1 Training Guide.”

The CrossFit Journal also contains resources to help you scale the workout to your level.”

Is the WOD enough? Should I do more?

“The WOD is a starting point, and each person will need to experiment to determine what “enough” means. Experienced athletes with specific competition goals might need additional work to improve their fitness, while beginners might need to reduce the volume of the WOD to optimize results.

The exact amount of work can be determined with the assistance of an expert coach at a CrossFit affiliate or by carefully logging your workouts and evaluating the results.

The demands of sport and active living will affect what you can do in each WOD, and you will need to balance your work/rest cycles to allow for recovery.”
