Workout of the Day
This week at KMF
If you see Rocky with her red Nikon out, make sure to let her know if you’re about to hit a PR or do something awesome (or just for the hell of it)! You are also free to download and share any of these pictures, just be sure to credit Rocky on her website roqholiday.com or, if reposting on Instagram: @roq_holiday!
Congrats on all the PR’s this week, and especially to Alex F. for making it to ProDays in L.A. and San Fran! We love seeing your posts and PR’s on Instagram, make sure to keep hash-tagging us with #kmfcrossfit (it’s the only way we can search your photos at the end of the week) so we can continue sharing them on Social Sundays (your account has to be a public account for us to reshare)!
Yelpers Love KMF Crossfit
"KMF Crossfit is hands down the best box I've ever been in!! The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and always eager to help and answer any questions you have about the WOD, form, nutrition, etc. They also place a huge emphasis on safety (you have to take 10 beginner fundamental classes when you join), which a lot of Crossfit gyms don't do enough. However, if you're experienced when you join you can test out of some/all of the classes. The workouts are always challenging and the staff encourage and push you the entire time. I LOVE this place -- I get sad every time I have to miss a day!! Would very, very highly recommend this location to friends and family"

What is Crossfit exactly?
The CrossFit prescription is “constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement.” Functional movements are universal motor recruitment patterns; they are performed in a wave of contraction from core to extremity; and they are compound movements- i.e., they are multi-joint. They are natural, effective, and efficient locomotors of the body and external objects, but no aspect of functional movements is more important than their capacity to move large loads over long distances, and to do so quickly.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual, regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind. Our hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
