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.
Enter CrossFit Bovine. We take an approach on fitness that involves a pretty large bias, but a useful and proven one at that. Strength. The missing piece to most athletes’ puzzle seems to be strength. When combined with a decent level of conditioning all of a sudden we have ourselves a freak athlete that is unmatched, relatively speaking. Our mission at CFB is to prepare athletes for any task, like many other affiliates and fitness entities world wide, but we take an even more focused approach on teaching lifting so as to get it across in a rushed but technical manner giving athletes the opportunity to reap the benefits of strength sooner rather than later.
We understand this is no easy task — which is why we chose it in the first place. “Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.”
