Bitcoin Betting on Crossfit
Most athletes focus on only a few aspects of physical fitness. If you lift hundreds of pounds, but pant after three steps, or run a marathon and don’t manage a push-up, then maybe it’s time to try Crossfit.
What do you mean by “fitness”? Is it fit who is not ill? Is a soccer player fitter than a basketball player? And how many hours of sport per week can I call fit? The World Health Organization defines fitness as follows:
“Fitness describes a condition that encompasses physical performance or the development of basic physical and motor skills and coordination skills: Strength, endurance, speed, mobility, coordination. In addition, it is also about psychological and social components, health and well-being”.

Accordingly, those who can provide a certain level of performance in all five areas are fit. Usually, most people focus on one or two aspects of fitness and overlook – sometimes quite banal – positive supplementation options. So our ambitious runner certainly doesn’t have to burden himself with enormous muscle mountains, but should consider, for example, whether some strength training might not alleviate his annoying knee and back pain. Crossfit starts here and combines all areas of fitness in one training program (The basic contents and principles of a “functional training”).
What is Crossfit?
The English word “cross” has many meanings. And Crossfit is just as versatile as the word itself. There are no limits. The training uses what is lying around – from a professional machine to a simple chair. It’s all about combining strength, endurance, speed, mobility and coordination. A mixture of everything, cross bed, cross and cross – just “cross”! The speciality is not to specialize. The idea is certainly not necessarily new. The inventor of Crossfit only gave the child a name and put together training plans and exercises – and thus created probably the hardest workout in the world: highly intensive with short breaks and on time or repetitions. Soldiers, special units and top athletes all over the world train according to the principles of Crossfit.
Where does Crossfit come from?
Like most fitness trends, Crossfit comes from the USA. US trainer Greg Glassman developed the basic principles of the training system back in the 1980s. The first studio followed in the mid 90s. But the breakthrough came only in the last few years. Crossfit studios call themselves “boxing” and there are currently almost 3000 of them worldwide – and the trend is rising rapidly. In Germany you will find the first boxes mainly in the big cities. An annual highlight are the crossfit games, where athletes compete and choose the fittest of the fits – sponsored and supported by Reebok.
For whom is it suitable?
In the beginning Crossfit was used by soldiers, martial artists and members of special units of the police and fire brigade to prepare as well as possible for all conceivable situations. Since a workout is not known to the participants beforehand, one learns quickly how to find one’s way in unknown terrain. Then professional athletes from various disciplines discovered the advantages of the program. In the end Crossfit became a training for everyone. Since workouts can be adapted at will, beginners and advanced, men and women, young and old can take part.
What does a cross-fit workout look like?
Usually, participants register in advance to allow for better planning. A key point of the training is that nobody knows the “Workout of the day” before. The trainer writes it on a blackboard at the beginning of the lesson. After a warm-up phase and a short repetition of the most important techniques, the workout begins. Training takes place in two groups so that the training partner can correct and motivate. Rounds and number of repetitions can be given or as many runs as possible in a certain time can be set as a goal. Here, too, there are no limits to creativity and possibilities – according to the basic idea of Crossfit. The training ends with a joint cooldown.
