CrossFit HQ provided us with the following information:
-The definition of “CrossFit” (constantly varied functional movements done at high intensity).
-CrossFit’s definition of fitness (increased work capacity across broad times & modal domains).
-List of the 10 components of fitness (power, strength, stamina, flexibility, endurance, accuracy, speed, coordination, balance, agility).
But where is the list of the 10 components of CrossFit? Here’s my attempt at filling out this information gap:
THE (UNOFFICIAL) 10 COMPONENTS OF CROSSFIT
Patience – Your results will show up if you keep at it. Fitness is a long game.
Intelligence – Being smart about how you train, listening to your body, learning from past mistakes, learning from others.
Heart – Showing up for WODs that target your weaknesses or elements you loath, class after class. Facing the struggle head-on.
Fun – If it’s not fun in the end, what’s the point?
Dedication – Showing up consistently every week, taking care of your muscles and your nutrition, keep challenging yourself.
Curiosity – What brought you in that first time, the urge to try new movements & progressions, learning more about CrossFit, learning more about you.
Trust – Trust the method, trust the programming, trust the coaching, and trust your affiliate.
Awareness – Know yourself, your limits and your body, know how to push, know what you need to do to improve.
Friendship – You are going to be working out with the same people a lot. No room for enemies in such a tight knit group.
Purpose – Why do you train, why do you want to be better, what are your goals, what are you trying to accomplish in today’s WOD?
