A few years ago, in 2000, a certain Greg Classman came up with the idea of CrossFit. He pondered about whether there was a way to determine who the fittest man on the planet was, and what series of tests would have to be placed before the contenders so that a clear winner of the title could be named. His answer was CrossFit. In this blog, we’ll walk you through some of the leading brands who manufacture CrossFit equipment. They are the unsung heroes who help the world’s most elite athletes prepare for their chance to claim to the title of “World’s Fittest”. Read on to find out more.

What is CrossFit?

Greg Glassman defined fitness as “the increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. He then created a program specifically designed to improve fitness and health.”

CrossFit consists of constantly varied functional movements which are continuously performed at phenomenally high intensity.  The functional movements which are involved incorporate the best aspects of various disciplines including gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and many more.
