what is crossfit

No it’s not getting angry while you exercise… CrossFit is a fitness regime developed by a US coach Greg Glassman more than ten years ago. It's developed quite a following, and provokes pretty strong reactions with people either loving or hating it.

CrossFit gyms use a range of equipment such as barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells pull-up bars, gymnastic rings, ropes and resistance bands to name just a few.
