Sports Specific Training- What is it? In the photo above twenty young swimmers are performing squats during the Crossfit Central warm up. I am asked all the time "do I do sports specific training"? MY typical answer is yes but in all reality's the answer is no. Crossfit is a general fitness program that develops 10 general preparedness skills that will make you a better athlete. A better athlete for what? Any sport you choose to play or compete in Crossfit Central trains marathoners, fighters, basketball players and soccer moms(aka super athletes) to be fit. The side benefits are you lose weight, feel good, and life is better!
