Pure Function CrossFit
Timothy Prater and Coleen Denton
202 S Main St
Marion, OH 43302
(740) 233-1033 

CrossFit is defined as that which optimizes fitness (constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity). By employing a constantly-varied approach to training, these functional movements at maximum intensity (relative to the physical and psychological tolerances of the participant), lead to dramatic gains in fitness. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work/time. The more work you do in less time, the more intense the effort.

While it challenges the world’s fittest, the CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual, regardless of experience. The same routines can be used for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts.
