Many professional and elite athletes are participating in the CrossFit program. Prize fighters, cyclists, surfers, skiers, tennis players, triathletes and others competing at the highest levels are using the CrossFit approach to advance their core strength and conditioning, but that’s not all. CrossFit has tested its methods on the sedentary, overweight, pathological, and elderly and found that these special populations met the same success as our stable of athletes. If our program works for Olympic Skiers and overweight, sedentary homemakers then it will work for you.

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.
