CrossFit fits into a category of exercise known as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) that consist of simple or complex "intense" exercise circuits that require many technical movements. CrossFit workouts include heavy weight/load, high reps and challenging cardio work.
The goal of CrossFit training is to achieve optimum fitness by improving strength, endurance, agility, balance and flexibility faster than other exercise regiments. When performed correctly, CrossFit exercise programs build muscle, increase oxygen intake and burn calories to manage weight. However, poor form, performing repetitive motions and overworking your body can result in the unfortunately consequence of pain and injury.
