"The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it
the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of
experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with
heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We
scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.


The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind."
– Coach Greg Glassman, founder of CrossFit
