Cross Fit: you need to know

What is Cross Fit?
The Cross Fit is a fitness program that combines Olympic weightlifting, power lifting, calisthenics, gymnastics, sprints, ply metric exercises and some other hard to categorize as a rope climb. The workouts are short and intense, and constantly changing.

There is nothing like the tedious sessions, long and monotonous than any regular gym has been doing for most of his adult life.


The premises of an establishment where Cross Fit is practiced not seem at all to those of a traditional gym. “No mirrors, no machines analytical muscle work, no bikes,” says Nacho Merino, owner and trainer of Cross Fit.

The box, which is what they call their gyms, is essentially an open space, with rubber flooring, high ceilings, and equipment-bars and discos, kettle bells, medicine balls, jump ropes, rowing machines-all well ordered by the perimeter of the room.

Special features of Cross Fit
In Cross Fit you have to discard all ideas that fitness is a linear pursuit toward a measurable goal, whether strength, height, or weight loss. Traditionally we are taught to program the target first, and then work toward a number of changes that we approximate to the target. If you want, for example, is make you stronger, a traditional program should help you gain strength progressively over time.

For the Cross Fit does not work well, not much to do with the traditional concept of fitness. No sessions are scheduled in the typical way. You are a hard exercise to another, and aim to be getting better doing hard things.

The Cross Fit is a randomness of exercises that are not suitable for the practitioner of fitness means. But if you want to enter a burning building, up a wooden beam and then carrying out a person on your shoulders, this may be the best program for you.
