There are many definitions of fitness, Are you fittest if you are the fastest? Are you the fittest if you are the strongest? At Yakima CrossFit, we believe the answer lies in the CrossFit definition of fitness.
“He/she is fittest who is statistically best at most things that come out of the hopper.”
You are probably wondering, what is a “hopper”? CrossFit uses the hopper analogy to explain why the fastest or strongest athlete in the room is not necessarily the fittest. A hopper is a funnel-shaped container which contains materials that are ready to be dispensed, you see them in raffles where many names are put in and they roll it a few times and pull out the winner. CrossFit describes a hopper as full of every physical challenge a person could possibly have to overcome or complete in their lifetime. Examples of these physical challenges/tasks are: lifting a heavy tire from the trunk to change a flat, pulling a sled full of kids across the snow, jumping over a fence when locked out of the house, or even having the flexibility to fit through the upstairs bathroom window to get back in, etc.. and so on…. The most fit athlete would be able to overcome more of these challenges than their less fit counterparts. Our goal at YCF is to train our athletes with the CrossFit program to achieve an elite level of fitness that is not only functional, but motivating and rewarding!
