To The Reader: Welcome to CrossFit New Hampshire,
Under our Start Here section you will find a brief introduction to what CrossFit ‘is’ centered around a powerful and insightful quote that CrossFit Founder Coach Glassman Published over a decade ago.
Please read Coach Glassman’s words before scrolling down the page and continuing on to the linked CrossFit Journal Articles. We consider these three articles to be an absolutely critical foundation of knowledge for any novice athlete that has come here looking for something that will help them realize the potential they’ve had all along. The Journal Articles contain detailed explanations of various definitive core concepts that CrossFit training is applied with profound relevance to. Most CrossFitters end up coming away with more questions than answers, so if you find that is you… Don’t panic. Yet.
We’ve also included an ‘old school’ highlight film from our previous home in the Waumbec Mills. Enjoy this sneak peek into a variety of daily training events from our recent past; thank you to all the athletes who toiled away day in and day out with us and allowed us to showcase this inspiring compilation of training footage.
We hope you enjoy exploring and learning, please do not hesitate to contact us with any additional questions.
“What is CrossFit?”
“CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed our workouts posted daily on this site and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.”
