Abraham is a fitness freak. Since his late teens, he has tried everything from diet control and special nutritional plans to cardio, HIIT (high intensity interval training, in case you had no idea what it was!!) and heavy work outs to remain fit.
He changed every 6-8 months because he was not satisfied with the results achieved.
Around 7 years back he stumbled upon CrossFit and has not looked anywhere else since then. He swears by the effect it has had on his physical and mental stamina.
Have you tried CrossFit yet? If not, it is time you did that.
CrossFit is a fitness regimen developed by Greg Glassman, a former fitness trainer who knows what he teaches. As a child he was stricken by polio, and regained his strength through gymnastics.
Science behind CrossFit
Greg Glassman is the first person to define fitness is measurable terms. He defines fitness as increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains.
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that employs varied high-intensity workouts to improve your physical fitness including your stamina, strength, flexibility, speed, coordination, balance, and more.
CrossFit workouts have been developed by Greg through personal trials and incorporate elements from Olympic weightlifting, calisthenics, HIIT, gymnastics, and more. Intensity is the key part of any “CrossFit Training Program”. And for best results you should also follow a caveman diet rich in meat and vegetables.

CrossFit has been gaining popularity since the early 2000s. CrossFit began as a fitness regimen to challenge the existing norms as it was more intense, raw, and difficult. Athletes and body builders loved the regimen just because of that – the sheer power that it brought them.
CrossFit regimen is said to be suitable for all individuals who want to be fit because you can start small and scale up as you gain strength and confidence. It is advisable to do these workouts in CrossFit centers, called boxes.
CrossFit centers are stripped of all trappings and focus just on workouts. Greg believes that you are there to sweat it out, not enjoy life!! You have 23 more hours in a day to do that. A typical CrossFit session lasts anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes.
Only those gyms that undergo special certification by CrossFit, Inc. are eligible to offer CrossFit training programs. There are more than 13,000 certified CrossFit boxes across the world.
