CrossFit is broad, general, and inclusive fitness.
Who should squat?
Anyone that wants to build and maintain strong, functional muscles, healthy bones and tendons, and have increased mobility.
Why should I care about training like an athlete? Why should I use constantly varied, functional movements, performed at relatively high intensity.
Because I want to be fit for life. Because I don’t want frail bones, or aches and pains when I sit-up from my chair. Because my body and its ability to move is an awesome gift. Because I want to be active with my kids. Because I want to look, feel, and perform better.
Young or old, fit or still working on getting there, played sports or never touched a ball in your life, CrossFit is something you can do. Just ask Olympic Gold Medalist and NBA great Charles Barkley. With some rare humility, Charles Barkley is giving CrossFit a go to get back into shape.
