THE 5 FACTORS OF HEALTH PRESCRIPTION


First let’s start by defining HEALTH.

If you were to google “definition of health” you would find: “the state of being free from illness or injury” . . . YIKES! Lucky for us, we know that Health is much more than that. We want it to be much more than that; we want it to be more than that for ourselves, our families, our friends, our athletes, really everyone. Redefining health and creating healthy humans is most likely the “why” behind everything we do.


CrossFit defines Health as “your work capacity across broad time and modal domains.” Let’s break that down a bit. . .

-Work Capacity: the ability to do physical activity. . . squatting, lunging, jumping, shoveling your driveway, playing with kids, hiking, helping your friends move a couch, etc.

-Across Broad Time: fitness measured across your lifetime. Not just peaking in your 20’s but maintaining fitness into your 90’s.

-Modal Domains: varied intensities and duration demands. . . pushing your stuck car, sprinting to your child, playing hours of soccer with your kids, going on that backpacking trip with your grandchildren, etc.


Said simply, being able to LIVE your entire life. Not just existing free of disease and injury; but truly living a meaningful life.
