Cross-fit is a training program built around core strength and conditioning that has been growing in popularity over a number of years. The idea behind this is that certain strength and conditioning exercises help in many sports and so they should be part of an athlete’s program. Running can benefit from core strength and conditioning training right through from sprints to ultra races.
There’s a lot of variety in a cross fit workout, you might end up doing a mixutre of; free weights, kettlebells, plyometrics, gymnastic and floor work. Training is scored in order to create competition.
You can find your nearest cross-fit gym and check it out here.
The BBC recently ran a story suggesting that cross fit was the ultimate fitness challenge, ahead of the marathon. I’m not suggesting that it is, but it does seem that cross-fit is something which is here to stay.
