We looked at 4 different models of fitness:

The 10 general physical skills

Physiological adaptations. 

The Hopper. 

Skills and drills. 

Metabolic pathways.


Sickness / Wellness / Fitness Continuum.


All models support the following definition…

Fitness is…

Work capacity across broad time and modal domains.

Health is…

Fitness throughout life. 

Our goal by doing CrossFit (constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity) is to increase our area under the curve; to increase our work capacity. 

Fitness is easily measurable, observable, and repeatable. Performing constantly varied functional movements at high intensity (CrossFit) will increase fitness.
