CrossFit Changing How We Use Fitness!

CrossFit has come on strong, been around for quite sometime, but with the games it really has been taken to a new level. Who is the fittest, I had the opportunity to go through a Level 1 Training class, listen to the speeches, read the manual and see what it takes to be CrossFit, more than you think. I am an endurance athlete, what changes for me is the weight, not even the heavy stuff,  push-up, sit-up, pull-ups, running, biking, rowing, nice, now add that to a doing a "Cindy", what or who is "Cindy", well your maker:

Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
5 Pull-ups
10 Push-ups
15 Squats


Every class is a competition, battling with the class or against yourself. Type A, well you will do both. Problem for endurance athletes are as follows, we are weak, very weak in part of our bodies neglected by years of individual training, BAD, very bad. You can dive full into CF and get a ton out of it, you will be faster, stronger and overall fitter than just swim, bike, run.

CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness. The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. We have sought to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency — not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, we asked what physical skills and adaptations would most universally lend themselves to performance advantage. Capacity culled from the intersection of all sports demands would quite logically lend itself well to all sport. In sum, our specialty is not specializing.

CrossFit Endurance CrossFit Endurance is an endurance sports training program dedicated to improving performance, fitness and endurance sports potential. We inspire, coach, and provide our community with the most aggressive and proven fundamentals of sports science, exercise physiology, nutrition and athletic training protocols. We are the leaders in strength and conditioning for endurance athletes. We have been guiding athletes, educating coaches and providing premier content to the endurance communities with tremendous success. Our passion is endurance sports. Our goal is to show a path that has not been illuminated. Our training principles work. We are not for everyone, only for those who want to have a home in which they can grow both mentally and physically as an athlete to realize their chosen potential.

Power and speed are critical components to success in the endurance world. With careful planning, our strength and conditioning plan increases these two mainstays of performance while decreasing recovery time, reducing injury, promoting preservation of lean tissue and creating a more sustainable performance curve.

We focus on eliminating unnecessary volume of training while increasing intensity. Our programming is structured, sport-specific and seamlessly integrated with Olympic lifts, powerlifting, gymnastics movements, explosive activity and mobility-based support. Everything we do focuses on midline stabilization and working from the inside out.

Our strength and conditioning approach for endurance athletes is unparalleled. We incorporate the CrossFit fundamentals of being constantly varied. Repetition is the enemy and results in a decreased ability to build fitness.

Make no doubt, our program is not easy, but we believe the journey is part of making the results more rewarding. Our design is to maximize you as an athlete and to elevate your fitness.

Our commitment to you is that we will coach, inspire, lead and educate with care, sincerity and a relentless motivation to finally get you where you want to go!

Automatic - Your Smart Driving Assistant

Ever wanted to see how your car is doing without having to take it to the deal, welcome Automatic!

Driving Feedback

Automatic learns about your driving style and gives you subtle audio cues when you do things that waste gas, like:
Rough Braking
Braking abruptly decreases fuel efficiency and dramatically increases wear-and-tear on your car’s brake pads.
Speeding doesn't save as much time as you might think, but driving 10 MPH over the speed limit reduces fuel1efficiency by 12-15%.
Rapid Acceleration
Stepping hard on the gas pedal decreases fuel efficiency and wastes money.
Automatic shows how you're doing on every trip.

Drive Score

Automatic scores your driving every week to help you improve. A high score could save you hundreds on gas every year.

Trip Timeline

The Automatic app displays detailed info about your week, like how much you drive and where.
See the actual MPGs for all your trips, even for older cars that don't display fuel efficiency on the dashboard.
Automatic also detects* fill-ups and even tracks local gas prices to show you how much you're spending.

Its a wonderful thing!
