In CrossFit, we don’t get our results from a lab. Instead, the data that guides our training and nutrition recommendations is collected from countless workouts where time, weight, distance, and reps are measured.
The measurement and recording of workouts is part of our culture and makes CrossFit a giant, efficient experiment conducted in garages, affiliates, and parks all around the world.
Every recorded workout is a data point that contributes to the experiment. It is this measurable, observable, and repeatable data collected from tens of thousands of athletes that has allowed us to prove the value of intensity, functional movements, variance, and whole foods eaten in the proper amounts for optimizing fitness and health.
And most importantly, as best practices permeate the community, we learn and implement what really works for our athletes.
