CrossFit is an exercise system developed over the years by Coach Greg Glassman. It is both a commercial system offered in many health clubs, and a system that you can do on your own. It involves constantly changing high intensity exercises most of the time, with weights. It is a functional form of exercise in that the routines are based on common movements. For an example, a CrossFit exercise may use the same muscles and movement as putting something away on a high shelf. High intensity exercises like CrossFit have proven themselves as great fat burners. It is better to do a unique exercise briskly for a short time, than to do the same exercise repeatedly for hours. Once you get your metabolism up by doing a high intensity exercise, the body continues to burn fat after the exercise is complete. More fat burning in less time. It burns more fat walking very briskly for a short time, than walking slowly for longer periods. The average CrossFit exercise takes two minutes to thirty minutes to execute. CrossFit can be an intense training for bodybuilders, or a more casual method of fitness and rehabilitation.

CrossFit recommends one of two diets, the Paleo diet, and the zone, depending on your goals. The vast majority of CrossFit trainers, also follow the Paleo diet. CrossFit people are interested in getting as much energy as possible from their food. They do this by adding more healthy fats such as nuts and olives to their diets. This works in perfectly with the Paleo diet. They add more low glycemic foods in place of higher glycemic foods like most carbs. CrossFit works well with Paleo because with Paleo you do get to eat a lot of food. You can eat many smaller meals throughout the day. Both Paleo and CrossFit treat food as fuel for the body.
