What is CrossFit?
Crossfit is a scientific approach to strength, endurance and gymnastic movements. The work out is constantly varied, functional movements at high intensity. They constant varied exercises and movements ensures that the body develops. When exercises are constantly varied, it means that the body does not have time to get used to them. The high intensity keeps the pulse up, which is good for blood circulation while increasing the burning of fat.

This functional and effective form of exercise ensures that you get a better life both physically and mentally, as most of the exercises one can be transferred to everyday chores.

There is also focus on building solidarity among the participants and on a healthy diet. It’s your personal goals and personal development that is in focus.
