Why do we do CrossFit? People join CrossFit for fitness and health benefits. And we see results for new athletes in their first 3 months, continued improvement at 6 months, and further progress at 1 year across all physical skills, performance benchmarks, and health markers. Beyond a year what is the long term benefit of resistance training and CrossFit’s prescribed high intensity, functional movements, constantly varied? What is the benefit for continuing to train as we age past 30-40-50-60-70+ years old regardless of how old we are when we start?

According to recent studies resistance training (which includes: weightlifting, gymnastics, plyometrics, and yoga) increases your life span, adds functional, active years to your life, and reverses the aging process at a cellular and genetic level.
