I like to describe CrossFit as the three C’s: Community, Coaching, Counting.
Community: In CrossFit, you are training with like minded people who are striving to be awesome just like yourself. You push each other to be tougher. You cheer each other to show support. Community pushes us to be better people. Inside the gym and out.
Coaching: CrossFit is a sport. It’s the sport of fitness. CrossFit breeds the best Coaches in the industry. CrossFit is not just a workout, it’s an athletic strength and conditioning program. At the core of CrossFit Upland, if you don’t succeed, we don’t succeed.
Counting: You can’t improve what you don’t measure. At CrossFit Upland we track our workouts. We repeat WODs to see progress. If you are doing better, things are good. Full steam ahead. If your fitness goes down, we can look back a find out why. Has your sleeping been off? Sleep is crucial for recovery. Has your nutrition been off? Have you been missing classes? If so, correct course and keep moving forward (shout out to Meet the Robinsons).
So that is what I feel CrossFit is. There is no other fitness program like it.
