With 6,100 affiliate gyms around the world, CrossFit, started by Greg Glassman, is quickly becoming a household name in fitness. You may have seen friends on Facebook proudly flaunting their newly toned bodies and wondered what CrossFit is all about. Unlike a typical gym, a CrossFit “box” does not have any weight machines- your body is the machine. There are ropes, bars, rowing machines, Olympic weights, kettlebells, jump ropes, gymnast rings, medicine balls, plyo boxes, and gigantic tires. CrossFit encourages “constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement.” Each day there is a different WOD (Workout of the Day) and participants constantly strive to beat their own records in time, reps, and/or weight. The most athletic and motivated CrossFitters go on to compete regionally for a chance to go to the international CrossFit Games.

It took a lot of sifting through ripped up hands because these workouts are no joke, but we hope this collection will motivate you to kick your fitness up a notch. [Read more...]

This new advertisement for Canadian organization Active for Life, sees school children using their bodies to demonstrate the dwindling level of fitness in Canadian schools.
