What is CrossFit?
CrossFit = Constantly Varied Functional Movements performed at High (relative) Intensity.
The CrossFit program is universally scalable to anyone who is committed to gaining more fitness. Our program is used for all of our athletes regardless of age or physical limitations. Our 9 and 68 year old athletes can (and will) perform the same programmed workout, with appropriate scaling of weight, repetitions, and length of intensity. We scale for load and intensity; we do not change programs. The Professional athlete and the attending grandparents needs of fitness only differ in degree (intensity) not by kind.
We offer 3 programs at CFRM: CrossFit, CrossFit Fundamentals, and Olympic Lifting. Our Coaches are experienced in execution and coaching both programs. To meet our coaches, please see the ABOUT page.
Our mission at CFRM, is to provide the best product of fitness in Jacksonville, FL. The reason we coach and perform CrossFit is because we love it. We strive to provide an environment of learning, empowerment, and progress every day; every class. We encourage our athletes to set goals and allow us to guide them through the journey to achieve them. We accomplish this through encouragement and positivity.
We train and coach to CrossFit.com standards. We do not teach or coach competition or age group standards. We fully support the annual CrossFit Open and the CrossFit Games! Our standards are available to reference in the CrossFit Level 1 (ref a) and 2 (ref b) Training Guides. We use the standards because they produce measurable, observable, and repeatable data. These standards allow us to follow the movement points of performance to attain efficient and proper body movement. The standards allow us to strive for virtuosity in all of our movements.
Our coaches expect progress, not perfection. We are here to build positive relationships and life long Health & Fitness.
We take extreme interest in our athletes and welcome ALL athletes from other CrossFit communities and new athletes to CrossFit. We take extreme ownership in our efforts to provide you the best we have in fitness. Just ask our athletes!

Fitness in 100 Words: (ref c)
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.
Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J (clean and jerk), and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climbs, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstands, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc. hard and fast.
Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense.
Regularly learn and play new sports.
