Post In a sentence, define crossfit.

Hey guys, I´m working on a assignment for an english fair... the topic is Unconventional Sports so of course I chose crossfit! what I wanted to get for the exposition is a definition of crossfit by crossfitters, if you can keep it short and sweet but anything goes here.

what I want to get is people to understand that there´s a whole bunch of totally different people who do this, so i realized this would be the best place to find different ideas of what we´re doing at our "wodplace" every day..

thanks for your help on advance!

Re: In a sentence, define crossfit.

Thanks alot ted, i just realized crossfit is a really hard thing to conceptualize... I guess it would be easier to say what you think of crossfit.

For example: I think crossfit makes fitness fun, the excitement of competeng angainst oneself, the feeling of not knowing what awaits in the whiteboard tomorrow and the joy of doing what you thought it was impossible

Re: In a sentence, define crossfit.

Crossfit is functional fitness that incorporates the use of strength, agility, balance, and endurance along with other fundamental exercise principals to create a routine that is fun and challenging.

Re: In a sentence, define crossfit.

I think I remember reading this somewhere, but it's a good descriptor:

"CrossFit: The hardest workout you'll ever love."

And one of my female friends was trying to get another female friend to try CrossFit and said the following:

"I'm not gonna lie. You will feel like death after its [the WOD] done...but, you will also feel like you conquered the world."

Re: In a sentence, define crossfit.

I'm going to modify what Apollo put up there:

Typically short, intense, workouts, organized as measurable and competitive events, that improve your endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, accuracy, agility, and balance.

Is that too many commas?

Re: In a sentence, define crossfit.

How about this:

Webster's Dictionary does not define CrossFit, but if it did, it would read:
A swift kick in the face, ***, and balls (ovaries for the females) all at the same time.
