Although you will probably start feeling better and stronger immediately, new students can expect about a 15-20% improvement in strength and endurance following the first fifteen sessions. In addition, our findings show that flexibility, agility and body composition are improved. Subjective things like increased mental toughness, energy levels, improved sleep and reduced joint stiffness are also reported. Most of our students are shocked at their improvements even though they would consider themselves exercisers before starting CrossFit.

Are the Olympic lifts beneficial for ALL athletes, regardless of the sport?
I’ve heard a lot of discussion about this over the years. Some coaches believe the answer is YES. Incorporating the Olympic lifts into an athlete’s training program will be universally helpful. The athleticism, multi-joint movement, and explosive strength components of the OLifts make them unanimously valuable for all sports. I’ve known strength coaches who think everybody from swimmers to golfers to distance runners to football players should be doing some form or variation of snatch and clean and jerk.
