What is CrossFit?
The CrossFit program delivers fitness that is 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.
CrossFit 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.

I wanted to plug a workout that I have done on a fairly regular schedule to break up my normal "gym" routine. The workout is called CROSSFIT and it's gaining popularity all over the world as of late. Mostly because of the incredible shape you find yourself in after a fairly short amount of time of consistent workouts. It's helped to push myself to another level, fitness wise and you know me, always up for a challenge! This ain't your typical, aesthetically pretty, gwakers gym, ala Las Vegas Athletic Club, so, don't plan on doing your beauty regime or toting your cosmetics bag to the locker room, cuz well there aint one! Haha. What you DO get is an ass kicking, a little abuse, and OH yea, you break a sweat! At LV CrossFit, Zach and Joe will put you thru your paces, they won't take any whining, and best of all, you get to pay for it!! The feeling and results though are priceless, and you just might... might get addicted. So leave your Ego at the door and do something good for yourself! Give it a go.
