CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist. The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen. Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed our workouts posted daily on this site and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.

8.15.13 WOD

Athletes, here is a great story that shows why everyone loves the CrossFit community so much. (Thanks for sharing this with me Jenny) 

A month before her 2010 wedding, a friend playfully pushed bride-to-be Rachelle Friedman into a pool at her bachelorette party. It led to a freak accident that left the former aerobics and line dancing teacher paralyzed from the chest down.
Three years later, the now-married and ever-positive Friedman is still on the road to recovery. But her efforts were stalled when her insurance company only agreed to pay for 20 days of physical therapy, according to WXII12. Without their help, the deductible was too expensive for her to afford.
That's when CrossFit APX owner Andrea Logan stepped in, offering to train the once-active Friedman for free and help her rebuild her upper body strength.
Watch the video above for more on Friedman's inspiring story.
