<h3>What is Cross Fit?</h3>

What is Cross Fit?

Cross Fit is a 'next level' workout. Cross Fit incorporates a number of power elements, but it is so much more than that. Cross Fit consists of various exercises derived from other sports in combination with other forms of movement and training. You can think of swimming, weightlifting and gymnastics, as well as rope climbing, push-ups and athletics. For this you can go out and train with what you encounter, but you can also choose a cross fit rack with accessories, or separate accessories such as a plyo box or Cross Fit trainer.

Cross Fit does not make you excel in a particular exercise or discipline. It does ensure that your general fitness level improves. It doesn't make you super muscular, but your body is well trained. Moreover, a workout is never boring; Cross Fit is synonymous with variation. You work on flexibility, (muscle strength) endurance, speed, agility, coordination and balance. But whatever you do, Cross Fit exercises are performed with high intensity.
