What is CrossFit? (source:


CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.

CrossFit Luzern offers classes lead by professionally trained English speaking coaches.

Classes are attended by a broad mix of hobby- and professional athletes who all want get fitter and enjoy mastering the Workouts of the day (WODs) at their level.

Is CrossFit for me? I thought it’s for Navy Seals and Olympic athletes. Absolutely! Your needs and those of your grandparents or an Olympic athlete differ only in their intensity but not in the movement itself.
