What is CrossFit?
Looking into the Exercise Methodology
CrossFit is truly for everyone; however, you must do your due diligence and see how a particular gym meets your needs. Think about what you want to accomplish and seek out the coaches and see if they can articulate a clear plan for improving your overall wellness.

10 Tips To Streamline Your Programming
Keys to Reaching Your Fitness Goals
With so much information in social media, the internet, and different publications, it becomes impossible not to over-analyze numbers, reps, sets and movements. Many people don’t have two to three hours each day to spend in the gym, and 99 percent of people are not specialists.
