According to CrossFit HQ:
CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness. The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. We have sought to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency — not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, we asked what physical skills and adaptations would most universally lend themselves to performance advantage. Capacity culled from the intersection of all sports demands would quite logically lend itself well to all sport. In sum, our specialty is not specializing.
CrossFit is many things. Primarily, it’s a fitness regimen developed by Coach Greg Glassman over several decades. He was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way (increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains). CrossFit itself is defined as that which optimizes fitness (constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity). CrossFit is also the community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together. In fact, the communal aspect of CrossFit is a key component of why it’s so effective.

A unique core strength and conditioning program that is designed to improve the core movements in life, found everywhere, and built naturally into our DNA.
A gym where you will establish friendships and relationships that will make you want to be better…at whatever you face; where you will never feel too intimidated to expand your boundaries; where you will experience the core values of community, determination, generosity, passion and humility.
A lifestyle which promotes healthy living through exercise and nutrition while fostering camaraderie and confidence. It is a culture…a community…a shared experience each and every day that has the odd effect of bringing us closer together and opening eyes and forging not just elite fitness, but elite people.
