Health and fitness fans are whipping themselves into shape through high a intensity workout program known as CrossFit. Howard Wilcox: Crossfit is a strengthening conditioning program with broad appeal. It is not targeted toward any one area. The high-impact training is a core strength and conditioning program that combines weightlifting, sprinting, and gymnastics. Members typically get bursts of exercise in a fraction of the time. Wilcox: We turn it into a sport, virtually every work out, the constant variety has great appeal. Every workout has some performance element that can be measured. It is the competitive aspect that lends Cross Fit a universal appeal. CrossFit promises to push each person to challenge their current fitness level, forcing their bodies to adapt and grow. “We try to balance things. We want to be very strong, but we want to be able to have some degree of endurance, flexibility, agility and all that. “ Howard says Crossfit also helps with weight loss and helps adds muscle. “ Everyone has their own level of what they can stand in discomfort. Many people can't do pull ups, initially, so we can use the big rubber bands, or the rings. Everyone is somewhere. We can scale the central motion to fit any person. “ For more information on CrossFit Call 478-254-2274
