1.) Reduce the likelihood of injury. Because the functional Movements prescribed by CrossFit better replicates movements common to most sports, afford athletes better control over their own movements, and better equip athletes to handle loads they apply to external objects, CrossFit can dramatically reduce the likelihood of overuse and misuse injuries.
2.) Improve each athlete’s ability to adopt new skills. CrossFit eliminates the most common barrier preventing athletic skill development – a lack of proper mobility and body awareness– by systematically eliminating the restrictions each athlete has on their ability to move properly and learning how to move their body with precision and proper body mechanics.
3.) Improve camaraderie and leadership skills. Humbling for athletes at every level of fitness and skill, CrossFit instills all participants with a healthy sense of humility, empathy, courage, and respect – all qualities essential for both leaders, and within a constructive team dynamic.
