Crossfit is a test of physical endurance whose name is derived from the company CrossFit, Inc., which Greg Glassman founded in 2000. As an exercise, it combines elements of aerobics, weight lifting, and gymnastics to come up with a high-intensity workout program. A single CrossFit workout lasts only for half an hour, but that’s because the routine is physically demanding and requires a lot of physical exertions. Crossfit includes a number of movements that can be categorized into movements with weights, distance movements, and body weight exercises. It is a popular workout program with an expansive presence across 7000 gyms in the US, as well as considerable affiliates overseas.
