CrossFit

Wednesday 28th Movember 2012

You’ll always have people asking you WHY you do CrossFit. One of the reasons we CrossFit is because it is functional. It involves movements that we do in everyday life, movement that are natural.
These movement patterns are built into our DNA and do not need to be taught. For example, observe a baby who have started to walk, they make brilliant CrossFitters! No one has taught them how to squat or deadlift or press. It is only as we get older we begin to lose the ability to perform these basic mechanics and therefore need to re-teach ourselves, so that we can perform these movements without injury.
