Ask one of the coaches at Operation CrossFit to define CrossFit, and they'll probably say it's "constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement." Then ask them to describe the typical workout, and they'll probably say there isn't one. On any given day, it could be a series of kettlebell swings, pull-ups, and double unders—jumping rope with two revolutions per jump—in 10 minutes. Such a workout challenges every metabolic pathway, not to mention builds strength and cardiovascular endurance. Tomorrow, the workout might be a series of 200-meter runs interspersed with air squats and percussive panting.
By constantly changing the workout, CrossFit prepares the body for anything. Head coach Peyton Warren and his team lead every group workout, upholding the CrossFit ethos of support and encouragement by adjusting exercises to accommodate all levels of fitness. They also mix up locales, often taking things outside. For those with specific goals, Operation's coaches gladly lend their expertise to helping students train for events such as obstacle races and castle-tower escapes.
