The purposes of this book are several. Primarily, it is the training we used to prepare people for the highest expression of fitness there is, the CrossFit Games. It is also a record of how we operated our gym. We do not separate our aspiring Games athletes from our base program. We believe that at its core, CrossFit is a general physical preparedness program, broadening and deepening the human capability to do work in many testable areas. The daily chapters contain different sections. The first section covers the classes we did in our box, and in other affiliates. These classes have some common components. The training usually includes a warm-up; some are general, and others are multifaceted and dynamic. The next component is either a WOD or Max Effort training.
