MILWAUKEE -- Chip spent the morning at BrewCity CrossFit. CrossFit is designed to be a community and a support system for getting fit.
What is CrossFit? (website)
CrossFit is a fitness program that is designed to be broad, general, and inclusive. Practitioners of CrossFit specialize in not specializing. The CrossFit methodology is designed for universal scalability, which makes it the perfect routine for any committed student regardless of experience, from cage fighters to grandmothers. Many police academies, tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide incorporate CrossFit into their strength and conditioning programs because it works. Our members are extremely diverse in their experience, conditioning, and lives. BrewCity CrossFit is a community. Our atmosphere is one of support and camaraderie for anyone willing to put in the work.
CrossFit incorporates a variety of exercises including Olympic and power weightlifting, gymnastics, body-weight movements, running, rowing, and many other elements. We don’t have exotic weightlifting machines, treadmills, flat screen TVs or mirrors. We do have pull up bars, kettlebells, medicine balls, gymnastic rings, barbells and dumbbells. We have lots of floor space for push-ups, sit-ups and plyometrics. We have tires for flipping and ropes for climbing. Workouts often include several exercises performed back to back and for time.
