WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning programme utilising constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity. At CrossFit Devil's Path we specialise in not specialising. All CrossFit workouts are completely scalable and can be embraced by anybody no matter what level of fitness they possess. For example, your Gran will have relatively less fitness levels than a 20 year old football player, however they can still train alongside each other carrying out identical functional movement patterns with just the reps and weights changing.

At CrossFit Devils Path you will attain a broad, well rounded level of fitness and no matter what level you are starting from you will be trained as an athlete in order to reach fitness levels you never realised you could attain. You will become proficient in the following recognised physical skills:
Strength is: 'The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply force'
Flexibility is: 'The ability to maximize the range of motion at a given joint'
Stamina is: 'The ability of body systems to process, deliver, store, and utilize energy'
Speed is: 'The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement'
Power is: 'The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply maximum force in minimum time'
Accuracy is: 'The ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity'
Agility is: 'The ability to minimize transition time from one movement pattern to another'
Balance is: 'The ability to control the placement of the bodies center of gravity in relation to its support base'
Coordination is: 'The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular distinct movement.'
Cardio Endurance is: 'The ability of body systems to gather, process, and deliver oxygen'
The concept behind CrossFit is general physical preparedness (GPP), the idea of being prepared physically and mentally for an infinite number of tasks, which are transferable to everyday life.
