CrossFit's ten general physical skills

They are cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. You are as fit as you are competent in each of these ten skills. Our regimen develops fitness to the extent that it improves each of these ten skills.

CrossFit programming is far from random

Our coaches generate the Workout of the Day(WOD) schedule out weeks ahead of time. CrossFit workouts need to account for many different domains. The "unknown and unknowable" is one of CrossFit's key concepts. However, this is only in regards to the members. As coaches, we carefully calculate a program considering everything being thrown at our members and why.

Cardiovascular/respiratory endurance: The ability of body systems to gather, process, and deliver oxygen.

Stamina: The ability of body systems to process, deliver, store, and utilize energy.

Strength: The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply force.

Flexibility: the ability to maximize the range of motion at a given joint.

Power: The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply maximum force in minimum time.

Speed: The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement.

Coordination: The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular distinct movement.

Agility: The ability to minimize transition time from one movement pattern to another.

Balance: The ability to control the placement of the bodies center of gravity in relation to its support base.

Accuracy: The ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity.
