CrossFit’s First Fitness Standard – Sat 4.29.17
Fitness should be more than about getting sweaty and skinny. Sure, those will happen with hard work and good nutrition, but there should be more. There should be a constant development and improving of skills among different domains (not only volume and weight increases). This Fitness standard is from an excerpt in the original CrossFit article, What is Fitness?
There are ten recognized general physical skills. They are cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. You are as fit as you are competent in each of these ten skills. A regimen develops fitness to the extent that it improves each of these ten skills. Importantly, improvements in endurance, stamina, strength, and flexibility come about through training. Training refers to activity that improves performance through a measurable organic change in the body. By contrast improvements in coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy come about through practice. Practice refers to activity that improves performance through changes in the nervous system. Power and speed are adaptations of both training and practice.
