CrossFit Beginnings

February 13, 2012

In 2001, when Coach Greg Glassman decided to launch CrossFit, it was only a small community who were exposed to it.

The first workout posted in 2001, was on the 10th of February. This was the workout:

For time:
Fast & Heavy
Dumbell “Thruster” 21 reps
Run 1/4 mile (400m)
Dumbell “Thruster” 18 reps
Run 1/4 mile (400 m)
Dumbell “Thruster” 15 reps
Run 1/4 mile (400 m)

“Thruster” is a deep front squat to a push press all in one explosive movement.

Time routine from start to finish.
Ranking is a composite of load used in “Thruster” and total time.
Submit body weight because load value is based on percentage of body weight.

It’s amazing to know how huge CrossFit has grown to-date. The number of affiliates and people joining boxes have increased multiple-folds!
