CrossFit Clearwater is a registered affiliate of CrossFit. Our athletes train using the CrossFit methodology. The CrossFit prescription is “constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement”. Constant variance assures your body will not plateau and will always be given a new stimulus to create change. High intensity is the key ingredient in our program. Intensity is the independent variable most associated with maximizing favorable adaptation to exercise. Functional movements are universal motor recruitment patterns, they are performed in a wave of contraction from core to extrememity. We do not train muscles in isolation because in life and sport we utilize compound movements that are multijoint. The body is a system and should be trained as such.

At CrossFit Clearwater we train in small groups with a coach. We find this creates much more intensity than if you were to train alone. Our approach is consistent with what is practiced in elite training programs associated with major university athletic teams and professional sports. CrossFit endeavors to bring state-of-the-art coaching techniques to the general public. We believe you can train elite athletes and your grandmother the same way you just have to vary intensity and load. We are all anatomically the same.
