I did a drop in at CrossFit Tidewater today. The entire staff was awesome, the gym was a great size, well organized and clean. The coaches made me feel welcome as if I was a regular member. This is exactly what I was looking for. They are living up to the CrossFit name and making it all about the community. Great Job.

My two year anniversary with CFT is coming up this spring/summer, I've been with them since the very beginning when we only had like 40 members. I'm always happy when I'm here and love the people that surround me!

History of CrossFit

CrossFit was formally established in 2000 by Greg Glassman. By 2005 there were 13 affiliate gyms. Because of the incredible results people have seen, there are now over 8,800 CrossFit affiliate gyms worldwide, making it the largest fitness organization in the world. How do you argue with those results? One of the best articles, published by “The Box” magazine, outlines the history of CrossFit. One of CrossFit’s largest strengths is that it is scalable and usable by anyone at any age. There are 80 year old people using CrossFit to stay healthy, 350lb + people using CrossFit to lose weight, and 5 year old children using it to learn about fitness. Even the US Military uses the methodology to train it’s Special Forces.

A simple way to sum it up. CrossFit founder Greg Glassman realized that specializing in one athletic domain meant losing the ability of the athlete to perform in others. Think of the strength capacity of a marathon runner, or the endurance capacity of a power lifter? They gave up one capacity for another. Greg’s goal was to determine the “Best methodology to determine and produce the fittest humans on the plant”. His discovery was that by mixing the best training disciplines of other sports, we could become the best and most fit versions of ourselves. What is athleticism? It is being able to perform optimally in the following modal domains: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.

CrossFit is the most effective way to do this, in the least amount of time. 8,800 gyms and hundreds of thousands of people can’t be wrong. If you are in or near Chesapeake or the surrounding area come join a CrossFit Gym who values you as an individual and wants to help you achieve your goals.
