CrossFit is the most comprehensive and effective fitness program in the world. Elements of track and field, gymnastics, and weightlifting are combined in short, intense daily workouts to maximize results for any individual. CrossFit’s popularity is largely due to its universal scalability; meaning: regardless of the level of experience the program does not change. CrossFit is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Its specialty is in not specializing.At CrossFit Courageous, our goal is to teach you the correct, safe and most efficient way to move. Proper movement patterns will be established so that you can progress safer, and faster towards your fitness goals. We have great coaches and an amazing community to help encourage, educate, and support you along your journey.
