General Physical Preparedness (GPP)
CrossFit, by definition, is constantly varied functional movement done at high intensity. CrossFit employs various types of training modalities and methods in order to best prepare the athlete for any physical challenge or demand. This type of fitness is referred to as General Physical Preparedness (GPP) -- a physical capacity that is broad, general and inclusive. In CrossFit our specialty is not in specializing. We believe this unique type of training is foundational, or core, to all other athletic or practical life needs.
CrossFit Trains For Life
‘Sickness’ and ‘Fitness’ are nothing more than two ends on the same ‘Wellness’ spectrum. We have found that training under conditions that are always changing, along with developing competence at many different physical tasks and skills, produces a fitness that is broad, general and inclusive. We believe this unique type of training is foundational, or core, to all other athletic or practical life needs. At Left Coast CrossFit we teach proper technique and form in all lifts and movements, and encourage a lifestyle that puts a premium on nutrition and developing healthy habits. This is all done in a community that has the common goal of excelling together and inspiring each other to PR's (personal records) and a healthy vibrant lifestyle.
