What is CrossFit?

Community, Commitment, Results.

At CrossFit Ridgecrest, we believe that it takes commitment to reach your goals, but with a tight knit community behind you, getting the results you want are just a matter of time.  


What is CrossFit?

Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

World Class Fitness in 100 Words

  • Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds,
    some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep
    intake to levels that will support exercise but
    not body fat.
  • Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean,
    squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly,
    master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups,
    dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to
    handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds.
    Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast.
  • Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns
    as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy.
    Keep workouts short and intense.
  • Regularly learn and play new sports
