Welcome to Southern Maryland CrossFit. Welcome to the CrossFit community. Welcome to the fitness revolution. The revolution is a grassroots movement. This revolution does not involve mirrors, TVs, or countless rows of ellipticals or new machines. It does involve hard work, smart nutrition, and patience to learn proper movement. We offer a team-like environment to high school and collegiate athletes, mothers, MMA fighters, police and firefighters, and the deconditioned looking to gain real world strength and performance. The support system of like-minded individuals we foster here will hold you accountable to your fitness and health over a lifetime, not over just your first month.

What is CrossFit?
"CrossFit is a strength and conditioning system built on constantly varied, if not randomized, functional movements executed at high intensity."-CFJ Mar. 04
What does that mean? It means that CrossFit workouts (except for benchmark workouts) will never be the same from day to day. This is to prepare your body for what happens in real life, no day is exactly the same, especially if you are in the military, law enforcement, firefighting, or EMS community.
"The fitness that CrossFit advocates and develops is broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and on average, punish the specialist."-CFJ Mar. 04
It means that these functional movements are essential to independent living, safe, pre-historic, compound, and they enable you to move a large load a long distance quickly.
It means that intensity gives you power. Good fitness stems from intensity. It means that if you start CrossFit, it will lead you to an effective road to results!
CrossFit also has the ability to be scaleable to any fitness level. No matter what shape or how old you are, CrossFit can be applied to help meet your fitness goal whatever they may be! The needs of athletes and the elderly differ only by degree.
