What is Crossfit?

Some examples are: Rope climbing, Rowing, Running, Weight-lifting and Rope jumping. The aim is not to specialize, but instead, practitioners are encouraged to get accustomed to various different exercises, so they can handle physical stress better. It's in their best interest to prepare for the unknown, thus enhancing their survival skills.
