All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more.

Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time — or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness and body shape.

  1. NO EXCUSES!
  2. Show up regularly and work hard EVERY TIME. Always come with a positive attitude. Don’t doubt yourself.
  3. Lateness WILL result in motivational consequences in the form of burpees.
  4. Technique. Consistency. Intensity. In that order, always.
  5. Coaches are the only ones allowed to correct technique and give advice. Cheer and encourage all you like, but leave the coaching to the coaches. If you think someone’s technique looks dicey, notify the coach.
  6. Scaling options will be identified by coaches only. Cutting reps is not a “scaling option” it’s called CHEATING. You are not being smarter by doing less work, you are actually making yourself less fit and you’re also a COCK.
  7. At CrossFit you WILL squat. There WILL be no compromise.
  8. Carelessly dropping weights from great heights may agitate the coaches … you DON’T want to agitate the coaches. DO NOT drop barbells with less than 10kg bumpers on each side unless bodily harm is eminent.
  9. Clean up after yourself. This includes EQUIPMENT, personal belongings, drink bottles, chalk dust, sweat, blood, germs and other DNA.
  10. Log your WOD, it’s important for progression.
  11. Enjoying your achievements is great, but celebrating and cheering for others makes you a true CrossFitter and a legend.
  12. Learn everything you can about CrossFit, the top athletes, the community, the movements and the principles behind it.
  13. You are part of a wonderful community. Embrace it, respect it and give back to it.
  14. We have no time for egos, drama or whining. If you are scared of hard work, sweat, blood and possibly vomit, then CrossFit is not for you.
