CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program of constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement, with the goal of improving fitness and physical preparedness.

Workouts are typically 20 minutes or less and involve intense, demanding all-out physical exertion. We combine movements such as sprinting, rowing, jumping rope, climbing rope, weightlifting, and carrying sandbags. We use barbells, bumper plates, dumbbells, gymnastics rings, pull-up bars, kettlebells, medicine balls, and many bodyweight exercises. These elements are mixed in numerous combinations to form prescribed “Workouts of the Day” or “WODs”.

Our hour-long classes include a warm-up, stretching, a skill development segment – if required, and a high-intensity WOD. Performances on each WOD are scored and ranked to encourage competition and to track individual progress. We have a whole wall devoted to the top 10 athletes for a variety of different WODs, lifts, runs and rows.

The Reebok CrossFit Partnership

In 2010, Reebok and CrossFit, entered into a 10-year partnership. The partnership is a natural collaboration between two companies that are committed to fitness and aim to promote fitness in a new way. Through the partnership, Reebok will be the title sponsor of the CrossFit Games, the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth; will launch Reebok CrossFit “Boxes” – the word CrossFitters use to describe their gyms – around the world; and will introduce a range of footwear and apparel designed specifically for CrossFit training and competition. Reebok opened the first Reebok CrossFit Box for employees at its global headquarters in Canton, Mass., in September of 2010.
