Is CrossFit For Me?
Yes. READ WHY CROSSFIT TO LEARN MORE!
Everyone can do CrossFit regardless of age, injuries and current fitness levels. The program is modified for each person to help him or her safely become healthier and fitter. Grandparents and Olympians can perform modified versions of the same general workout.
The needs of the elderly and professional athletes vary by degree, not kind. Where one needs functional competency to maintain independence, the other
needs functional mastery to maintain dominance. Improved hip capacity will help a GAA player kick a ball with accelerated force; it will also reduce the chances of Grandad falling in the bathtub.
The squat is the perfect tool for both.
For both the older person and kids too much weight is any amount that cannot be lifted with near perfect execution. Practising with small loads and demanding proper technique builds muscle, bone, and strength sufficient to allow for slightly greater loads. That is the process for everyone.
