CrossFit Cape Ann

So what is CrossFit?

I quote:
"CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program utilized by 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. We believe that proficiency is required in each of ten fitness domains: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance, coordination, and accuracy.

The CrossFit program takes an old school approach and combines it with hard work and commitment to allow you to achieve total fitness. CrossFit uses varied, functional movements at high intensities, scaled to your ability, for the maximum results, making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless or your experience and fitness level. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs…. because the needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ only by degree not kind."

Jon Conant runs a great operation, never have I received such a supportive, nurturing, and encouraging ass-kicking. Thanks!
