I will be attending a CrossFit certification seminar/exam for the weekend in NYC August 4th-5th.
You may be asking yourself, “What is CrossFit and why does this matter to me?” Well, the short answer is CrossFit is the greatest strength and conditioning program ever designed. The following video will give you a little bit of an idea:
Please note, that while incredibly impressive, all the exercises/routines are scalable. This means anyone, of any age or fitness level can reach unimaginable levels of fitness.
Still interested?? Good! For the longer, more complete answer keep reading.
“CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change program.
Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed our workouts posted daily on this site and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.
– Quoted from CrossFit.com
Workouts are typically short—20 minutes or less—and intense, demanding all-out physical exertion. They combine movements such as sprinting, rowing, climbing rope, weightlifting and carrying odd objects; they use barbells, dumbbells, gymnastics ring, pull-up bars, kettlebells, medicine balls, bodyweight exercises.
Due to the fact that I’ll be out of town the entire weekend:
The following classes will be canceled for Saturday, August 4th
Kids Kungfu 9-10am
Beginner Tai Chi 10 – 11am
Please note: that Adult Kungfu and Kungfu Kickboxing will still be held. In my absence, ShiXiong (Older Kungfu Brother) Stelianos will be taking charge in leading the training session.
Thank you for your understanding. I am working very hard to continually learn new things and bring you the greatest programs and the highest quality of instruction to help you achieve your goals as a martial artist and living healthier, happier lives!
