Our programming philosophy is the Three-Headed Monster. The top athletes in CrossFit have strength, skills, and conditioning. The goal is to feed the monster in all three domains.
Conditioning: This is the "Sport of Fitness" and we define fitness as work capacity. Do you have the conditioning and stamina to move quickly, regardless of how light or heavy the task is, and regardless of how long the
effort may take?
Strength: Simply put, the sport of CrossFit rewards strong athletes. Assuming you have the conditioning and skills to keep up with the top athletes, the stronger you are, the better you'll place.
Skills: Few aspects of the sport separate the good from the great more than their skills. Conditioning and strength are vital, but if you can't do big sets of muscle-ups, handstand push-ups, pistols, double-unders, butterfly pull-ups, and handstand walks, it doesn't matter how strong you are or how good your engine is. If you can't do the high-skilled stuff, you'll be stopped in your tracks during competition.
