*Programming and usage[edit]*

CrossFit advocates a mix of aerobic exercise, body weight exercise,
gymnastics, and Olympic weight lifting.^[6] CrossFit describes its strength
and conditioning program as “constantly varied, high intensity,
functional movement,"^[7] with the stated goal of improving fitness (and
therefore general physical preparedness), which it defines as "work
capacity across broad time and modal domains."^[8] Workouts are typically
short—30 minutes or less—and intense, demanding all-out physical
exertion. They combine movements such as sprinting, rowing, jumping rope,
climbing rope, flipping tires, weightlifting, carrying heavy objects, and
many bodyweight exercises; equipment used includes barbells, dumbbells,
gymnastics rings, pull-up bars, kettlebells, medicine balls
