World Class Fitness in 100 Words

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. by: Greg Glassman

CrossFit and Sports

CrossFit as your Sport or to Enhance your Sport!

CrossFit is competitive in nature, with constantly varied exercises done at high intensities. Coach Glassman states on the "What is CrossFit?" page (one of our tabs) that "our specialty is not specializing." Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
CrossFit takes the athlete and makes them a stronger, more prepared, and better well rounded competitor. The CrossFit Games is where our athletes prove their fitness. These are the athletes that have made CrossFit their choice of sport.Within CrossFit, there are specialities that help our "single sport" athletes. These athletes maintain and elevate their fitness by using CrossFit as a part of their strength and conditioning portion of their training. The difference is how they incorporate their sport into the programming to prepare them for compeition. We at AZO would be happy to help any single sport athletes, current CrossFitters or not, work the CrossFit principles into their regimen. Two examples of this are:
