Check Out Our Fitness Blogger Kristi in CrossFit Competition

Our fitness blogger Kristi D'Arpa has just entered her first CrossFit Competition and did absolutely AMAZING! CrossFit is not easy by any means.
What is CrossFit? CrossFit combines strength training, explosive plyometrics, speed training, Olympic- and power-style weight lifting, kettle bells, body weight exercises, gymnastics, and endurance exercise.
By doing this, CrossFit targets what it calls the major components of physical fitness: cardiorespiratory fitness, stamina, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance, coordination, and accuracy.
Training the CrossFit way requires you to work out 3 to 5 days per week. The workouts are highly intense and short, taking about 5 to 15 minutes to complete.
CrossFit workouts typically combine explosive exercises done in a circuit format: One exercise follows right after the next, with very little rest in between.
The main CrossFit exercises involve the whole body and include pushing, pulling, running, rowing, and squatting.
There are hundreds of CrossFit exercises.
Check out her video below. Any questions or comments please leave below.
