IS CROSSFIT FOR ME?

START YOUR CFMB PHASE TRAINING Today

What is fitness? Test yourself in all areas of fitness by using a set of standards that involves many components of physical fitness. We've developed the Athletic Skill Phases as a versatile and user-friendly tool to help you evolve in your health and fitness.

The ten generally recognized components of physical fitness are: Cardiorespiratory Endurance, Strength, Stamina, Flexibility, Coordination, Agility, Balance, Accuracy, Power and Speed.

A varied workout program like CrossFit develops all of these components. This will maximize growth and development, help you set goals, measure progress and aim for balance among the components of fitness. The Athletic Skill Phases make goal-setting more efficient and allow you to track your progress through our Four Phases of Fitness.

CrossFit Athlete Phase Training

CFDF Phase Shirts

At CrossFit MB, we believe in elite fitness and training. Having said that, our professional trainers will work with you on your journey to better fitness and health. We understand everyone is different and performs differently so we've created our CFMB Phase Training Program in order to properly guide you and develop. 

Throughout each phase, our members will not only achieve better health, mobility and athleticism but will also be professionally examined through each phase. Upon completion of a phase, the member will then be rewarded with their very own CFMB Phase Training shirt as an indication of completion. Can you reach Level IV? 

Each skill Phase contains its own progression of multi-joint movements of increasing skill, making it easy to expose weak areas, set goals and measure your progress. At the same time, you experience the rewards of increased general fitness. You develop strength, stamina and flexibility with measurable drills such as running, rowing and a selection of named CrossFit workouts. Increasingly complex movements bring improvement in coordination, balance and power output.

Phase 1 Athlete "Beginner"

PHASE 1   This phase is the minimum standard for health and fitness. Lacking these basic levels of strength, flexibility and work capacity makes daily life very limited. The complete level 1 should be attainable within 3 to 12 months for those with no significant limitations. At this phase, proper basic movements, such as hip flexion and active shoulder use are developed while healed injuries and structural problems are resolved.

Phase 3 ATHLETE "advanced"

PHASE 3 Few people obtain this phase of general fitness, although any healthy person can achieve it. The strength, work capacity, power and skill required to meet these goals can prepare you to overcome any kind of physical performance with competence and confidence. Expect to apply another three to five years of consistent effort. This is an appropriate phase of general fitness for those who depend on their fitness such as competitive athletes, military, law enforcement and firefighters. Engaging in combat or highly competitive sports and activities without possessing the abilities of Phase 3 is inviting injury or failure.

The Athletic Skill Phases are intended to be a guide; not a standardized test you're obligated to "pass". Don't be so hard on yourself for not being a "Phase 4 Athlete". Use the Phases to measure your strengths and weaknesses and to make improvements about your training. This guide is not a definitive guide to CrossFit, an exercise prescription, nor a complete guide to developing the skills. The skills are intended to be broadly representative of general fitness.
