CrossFit is, quite simply, a sport—the “sport of fitness.” We’ve learned that harnessing the natural camaraderie, competition, and fun of sport or game yields an intensity that cannot be matched by other means. CrossFit is dedicated to the improvement of human health and athletic performance. We operate in a small group class atmosphere with one or more coaches to teach lead and correct you every step of the way.
What we are offering at CrossFit Merrimack is a real world, functional fitness program that has a unique capacity to humble the world’s best athletes while at the same time remaining universally scalable to facilitate the development of all fitness levels. Through extensive practical application, study, and observation, CrossFit determined long ago that the needs of various populations differed in degree, not in kind.
CrossFit is not a specialized fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness domains. They are Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.
Movements you can expect to find that build on those fitness domains range from basic push-ups sit-ups and pull-ups to more in-depth Olympic weightlifting movements such as deadlifts, power cleans and presses.
Our program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We can use the same routine for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts.We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
When exposed to our prescription of constantly varied, high intensity functional exercise, athletes of all ages and ability levels reap the benefits of improved fitness capacity. This measurable and repeatable improvement in health and performance has led to the adoption of CrossFit as the principal strength and conditioning program for many law enforcement and military units worldwide.
