WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
CrossFit recognizes ten general physical attributes. These are Cardiovascular/Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Co-ordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy. You are as fit as you are competent in each of these ten attributes of fitness. We believe that fitness is about performing well at any and every task imaginable.
CrossFit workouts are constantly varied. You can expect workouts to include anything from callisthenic bodyweight exercises like squats, sit-ups and burpees, to using a variety of equipment like medicine balls, kettlebells and plyometric boxs, to gymnastic based movements such as ring dips and pull-ups, to weightlifting with barbells and dumbbells.
CrossFit does not separate cardio, core training and resistance training. We strive to blur the line between cardio and strength training, as nature has no regard for this distinction. We blend our programming to match the uncertainty of life. CrossFit training is functional and constantly varied. This constant variation will increase your all-around athleticism, and reduce the likelihood of you getting bored with your training. In-fact the opposite is true… CrossFit training is so addictive – you’ll want to constantly challenge yourself!

CrossFit Plett focuses on training your body to move the way it is meant to through increasing your levels of energy, health and physical performance. We increase your levels of general athleticism by training you through constantly varied exercise sequences – the body is then forced to adapt.

Because the CrossFit method is designed for scalability, it’s perfect for any committed individual regardless of age, fitness or experience. Unlike commercial gyms, we do not offer open gym hours.

But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles...
THE SPORT OF CROSSFIT
Is CrossFit a sport or is it a fitness regime? The answer is both. The goal is to increase our ability to do more work faster. The key to CrossFit’s success is its competitive nature. However, not everybody at a CrossFit session is competing, many are simply enjoying the variety of the workouts and the physical fitness and fat loss results it delivers. To some, the clock provides a measurement of how well they are improving from week to week and month to month, and to others it is a measurement of how well they completed a CrossFit WOD as a sport. A CrossFit athlete is functionally strong, fast, flexible, and is at the top of the food chain when it comes to athletic competence.
At any CrossFit affiliated club throughout the world, you are certain to meet amazing athletes, but the majority of people are everyday people who have found a sport and community they enjoy being a part of. Our passion is with human performance. We want your body to move and perform well. The CrossFit method is at its core a General Physical Preparedness system. We also tailor Specific Physical Preparedness systems for specialized athletes. Regardless of the sport you play, or even if it’s no sport at all, CrossFit Plett is the key to achieving your results!
